Defending Herman Cain

Over the last several weeks, I've taken pretty much every opportunity to mock Herman Cain for being insane because of his series of ads involving a little girl murdering a goldfish, a bunny rabbit, and a flock of carnivorous chickens to prove some kind of point I don't really understand.  But is it really fair to mock Herman Cain for following in the footsteps of Ronald Reagan?

There's a bear in the woods.  For some people the bear is easy to see.  Other's don't see it at all.  Some people say the bear is tame, others say it's vicious and dangerous.  Since no one can really be sure who's right, isn't it smart to be as strong as the bear?  If there is a bear?

Yes, yes it is.  Because they're both out of their minds.  How do you argue with the logic of "I might be imagining a vicious bear, so that justifies rapid military expansion"?
