Stupid Right-Wing Tweets: Herman Cain Edition

Recent studies have shown that the United States lags behind other developing countries in social mobility -- what is often known as the "American Dream." And, ironically, it's particularly hard to go from rags to riches in the Red States.

But wingnuts don't like studies and facts that contradict their beliefs.

So, for Herman Cain, the reason there are fewer people achieving the American Dream has nothing to do with the disastrous failure of trickle-down economics or the destruction of organized labor -- it's because fewer people are going to church or something.

Awesome.
