Best tank for a mental incompetent?

I don't like buttons. The less I have to push, the better. The title was kind of provocative; I don't really care how reflex-based the job is, I just ****ing hate skill bar bloat for aesthetic reasons.

inb4 "don't tank" as if tanking itself is actually hard nowadays
ib4 "if it's not hard why do you care which is the easiest" because some idiot doesn't understand that easiness is not a boolean because gamefaqs suffers from chronic stupidity
inb4 someone takes me seriously and tells me to go into therapy

Lets see, I think DKs might be the best for ya, heck, a Blood DK could click tank.

Just arange your main abilities in a neat little square.

Death Strike Blood Boil Out Break
rune Strike Heart Strike Death and Decay

For the most part, that's all you'll need, in most cased, one click OB, one clock DnD, spam click DS or RS if DS is on CD.

Agree, although I'd say DKs might beat Warrior to 2nd place. Just thinking about all those banners, intervene, charges, etc.

Druid is DEFINITELY the one with fewest required keybinds.

^ Clearly does not play a death knight (beyond maybe an alt.)

Antimagic Shell, the 'oh, I can ignore that mechanic!' button? Icebound Fortitude? Vampiric Blood? Rune Tap? Death grip? Strangulate? Raise Ally? ARMY OF THE DEAD, the 5-man wipe prevention tool[1] in a box? Any and all active talents?

Granted, just using your offensive abilities will work for content you and your healer outgear, and 58-79 leveling content (because player power at those levels has risen sharply over the past 4 years, while the actual content has not been adjusted to match.) For anything challenging you will need your cooldowns, or you squish. Period.

That said, any tank is going to need their cooldowns for serious play; all of them will have many buttons. In my experience DK and monk are the most cooldown dependent; there's a stark difference between a good DK or monk and a bad one.

[1]- Use only in dire emergencies. Do not use against dragons not named Murzarond unless you're going to wipe anyway.

And how many of those buttons do you spam constantly? 5MH, the configuration I gave will take care of most everything. Just have a bar full of the Oh Crap CDs nearby but not in the way, lets not complicate a piss easy class.
