Better ante up, journalists, because Herman Cain is prepared for even the toughest interview topics.

The GOP candidate told Christian Broadcasting Network that he's "ready for the 'gotcha' questions."

"When they ask me who is the president of Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan I’m going to say you know, I don’t know. Do you know?" he said.

For those keeping score, Uzbekistan's current president is Islam Karimov.

Cain explained that his top priorities are job creation and national security, not "knowing who is the head of some of these small insignificant states around the world."

The Republican hopeful also sounded off on his campaign's religious influences.

"I felt like Moses when God said I want you to go into Egypt and lead my people out," he said. "God has been in this since the beginning...there are certain things that happen along this journey that they couldn’t happen unless God was in it."

It's no wonder Cain's feeling like a prophet-- he dominated last month's Florida straw poll and impressed the audience at Friday's Values Voter Summit.
