Herman Cain Has Awful Taste in Pizza

When GQ asked Herman Cain for his opinion on arugula, he replied, "Oh, I like it." Expect conservative mockery of Cain's elitist tastes any second now. Actually damning, though, is Cain's terrible judgment with regards to pizza. Here he is talking about Godfather's pizza as if it were a delicious gourmet item, and not the worst pizza in the world.

Alan Richman: Do you eat pizza as much as people say you eat pizza?

Herman Cain: No, because I'm very particular about the pizza that I eat. Godfather's is still a premium-quality product, and I cannot always find that. It's got to be as good as Godfather's or I won't eat it.

Cain also says that he'll only see movies that are at least as critically acclaimed as Jack and Jill. The man has standards.
