    A throwaway line from Herman Cain in last night's debate. But really, lighten the fuck up sometimes, America.

    Seriously, I mean, it's almost gotten to the point where you can't joke about the president's teenage daughter being ugly or sending around a racially charged picture comparing the president's wife to a gorilla. Was way better in the old days.

    The "It's Just a Joke" defense is my favorite.

    An ugly fat woman, a gorgeous young hot blonde, an American man and a Canadian man are all riding together in a train car.
    As the train passes through a tunnel, the distinctive sound of a loud slap is heard.
    When they emerge from the tunnel, a bright red handprint is on the face of the American.
    The fat woman thinks "that dirty American grabbed that blonde in the tunnel and she slapped him!"
    The blonde thinks "that dirty American must have tried to grab me, but grabbed the fatso by mistake and she slapped him!"
    The American thinks "that Canadian bastard felt up that blonde and she slapped me by mistake!"
    The Canadian thinks "I can’t wait ’til we go through another tunnel so I can slap that stupid American again!"

    It's a joke that he thinks he can be president.

    As the USA has developed, it's generated the most spectacular entertainment machinery in the history of the universe.

    Suspect that's not going to be enough to drive the engine, indefinitely.

    Anybody have the context?

    Otherwise I'd ask what exactly he means.
