In search for a new Republican gaffe after Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s “Oops” moment, Jon Stewart was overjoyed to talk about Herman Cain’s struggle to answer questions on Libya.

The Daily Show host felt Tuesday evening that Cain’s latest misstep help continued his addiction to “gaffe crack” and that he “was falling in love” with the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO.

“It’s like he tried to download the answer but just that little ball is spinning, it’s just buffering,” Stewart said. “This isn’t just a spelling bee, where you ask the moderator for the language of origin to buy yourself a time. Come on Cain, you’re forgetting the common rule. If you study high, you have to be high to take the test.”

Stewart did have some sympathy when Cain mentioned how he couldn’t respond faster because “things were twirling in my head.”

“I feel for you, a lot of things twirling around my head as well,” the comedian said. “But you know, being president is a real non-stop head twirling fest.”
