During a diplomatic meeting Thursday, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton joked with Afghani President Hamid Karzai about Republican frontrunner Herman Cain and his comments about “Ubeki-beki-beki-stan-stan.”
“One of the Republican candidates, I think it was Herman Cain. He’s a former pizza company executive,” Clinton said.
“Is he that?” exclaimed Karzai. “Alright!”
“Oh, yes. He started something called Godfather’s pizza,” Clinton remarked.
“Yes, I see, I see,” Karzai replied.
“The president was saying he saw this news clip about how Mr. Cain had said I don’t even know the names of all these presidents of all these countries, you know, like whatever,” she chuckled.
“All the stans!” interjected Karzai.
“All these ‘stans places!” joked Clinton.
“That wasn’t right,” Karzai noted. “But anyway, that’s how politics are.”
