President Obama announced from Bali on Friday that he's sending Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the human rights disaster zone known as Myanmar, aka Burma, saying, "After years of darkness we've seen flickers of progress." It will be the first such visit to the country, which has long isolated itself from diplomacy, in over 50 years.

Asked if he sides with the president's decision, Herman Cain responded, "Myanmar. Myannnnnmaaaar. Wait. No hold it, I got this. Got all this stuff twirling around in my head. Is that a marshmallow cookie?" [NYT, WSJ, Photo]
