While speaking to an audience in Iowa, presidential candidate Herman Cain spoke of some interesting methods for preventing illegal immigration.

The Republican candidate told his supporters:

I just got back from China. Ever heard of the Great Wall of China? It looks pretty sturdy. And that sucker is real high. I think we can build one if we want to! We have put a man on the moon, we can build a fence! Now, my fence might be part Great Wall and part electrical technology. . . . Put me in charge of the fence and it will be a twenty foot wall, barbed wire, electrified on the top. And on this side of the fence, I’d have that moat that President Obama talked about. And I would put those alligators in that moat!

Cain was clearly pandering to an audience that cheered any time an immigration crackdown was mentioned, but many are still wondering if he is serious about his run for president.
