Katrina Trinko at The Corner notices something:

At tonight’s debate, candidates will have the opportunity to ask another candidate a question. Herman Cain is planning to direct his question at Mitt Romney.

“I’m going after Romney. I have a very penetrating question for him,” Cain told radio host Neil Boortz in an interview today, according to the Washington Post. He added that he didn’t “need to go after Perry.”

Cain's gotta be careful, because if it's a yes or no question Mitt's in the clear with an answer of yes, no, and both.

I have a very penetrating question for him

If it's not "Does a dog on the car-roof have Buddha Nature?" then I am going to be very disappointed.

Temple garments! Please, please let it be about temple garments.

I have learned a great deal from watching Mitt.

For example, his brilliant strategy for questions he doesn't like. He simply answers a DIFFERENT question!!

Gawd, that's beautiful in its simplicity. Oddly, it doesn't seem to work as well for me in job interviews, but I'm sure that's more a problem of execution than it is one of strategy....

I am in the job I occupy now after a job interview in which I answered the "what is your worst quality" question with "evasiveness".

...you're lucky - my best quality is evasiveness

Evasiveness is my most elusive quality.

Missed the debate, I hope Cain asked him, "Do you really believe you get your own planet when you die?"

And your best quality? Honesty!

Besides, you can't say "enormous dong;" that would be inappropriate.

W/v is "pressed"

To be honest, I'm not interested in penetrating questions that don't involve hot gay sex.

The short answer is "both yes and no". The long answer is "yes, no and maybe."

Look, nowadays you're competing with a couple hundred other applicants. Face it, you're not getting the job anyway. Go ahead and say that your best quality is an enormous dong, it won't hurt anything and you might get a date.

Unless you're a woman. Then I don't know what you might say. "Enormous vagina" doesn't seem to work the same way.

Look, I have been short on sleep and haven't eaten a brain in days.

As that answer proves, you ARE pretty bad at it.
