The January Surprise

For those wondering ,”Where is Herman?” I guess he is out of the dog house with his wife (his charge cards are maxed out at Tiffany’s, even with the Newt discount), so he has now decided to make himself relevant again.

For those that watched the video, did Herman goose that lady in the red top? Old habits die hard. But more importantly , is there any significance to be gleaned from the fact … Read more

Cain Out

It seemed like such a good idea at the time:

An unapologetic and defiant Herman Cain suspended his presidential campaign on Saturday, pledging that he “would not go away” even as he abandoned hope of winning the Republican nomination in the face of escalating accusations of sexual misconduct.

“As of today, with a lot of prayer and soul searching, I am suspending my presidential campaign,” Mr. Cain said at a rally here, surrounded by supporters

The One Who Smelt it Dealt It

John McWhorter has a good and quite controversial essay on the race card and Herman Cain:

The left has been outraged at the Cain campaign’s response, but it also ought to feel a pang of recognition. If the race card is still a viable part of our national discourse in the Obama era, it is so at the behest of liberals—and it’s no less odious or callow when it is played by the left as

She’s made a career of this?

It looks like one of those Cain accusers thinks that filing such complaints is just another tool in the employment negotiations toolbox, and has a history of using these complaints to force employers to give her perks, breaks, rewards, or all of the above:

WASHINGTON (AP) — A woman who settled a sexual harassment complaint against GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain in 1999 complained three years later at her next job about unfair treatment,

It’s about the money & fame!

Stiffler’s mom – Yes, Poosh, I am stealing that – seems to have somethign to gain from claiming Cain harassed her despite her claims to the contrary:

The Cain Encounter …

They hugged each other backstage in a full embrace like old friends.

She grabbed his arm and whispered in his left ear.

She kept talking as he bent to listen, and he kept saying “Uh, huh. Uh, huh.”

Huh?

“I don’t know if what

What’s a Little Harassment Between Friends

David Greenberg has a useful take on the Herman Cain business. He talks about the changing of sexual mores in politicis over the last fifty years — how extramarital affairs went from unspoken private behavior to very public and ruinous scandals; how divorce went from politically ruinous to acceptable; how homosexual behavior could once have destroyed a politician but is a smaller problem now. The relevance to Cain:

It may be hard today to imagine

Dr. Cain and the Women

At the risk of flooding the zone with three post in a short time, I did want to open a thread on the sexual harassment allegations against Herman Cain. The claim is that he paid two women in response to harassment claims. I’ve found his response very believable and straight-forward: he claims he was falsely accused but his trade group settled without his knowledge.

We’ll see how this shakes out. I’d say I don’t believe … Read more

Herman-larious

No, he’s still not ready, but he is entertaining, check out Cain’s new spot:

For those familiar with Alfonzo Rachel, yep, that is him as one of those “liberals”, that’s why they call it acting.… Read more

He’s Not Ready

I am officially OFF the Cain bandwagon. Alright, I was never really on it, but I did spend a lot of time in the showroom, kicking the tires, rubbing my hands on the upholstery, and ooggling the console, still in the consideration stage and wanting to be impressed. But major design flaws have just been revealed making any further support on my part just too risky.

I mentioned before in the earlier Cain post that … Read more

The Fat Man Picks His Horse

Considering that the election is still 13 months away, things sure do move fast in presidential politics. We just heard Gov. Christie announce his decision to not run for president, now the governor announces who he is endorsing, no surprise here:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, just one week after definitively announcing he will not run for president in the 2012 race, endorsed Mitt Romney for the job Tuesday afternoon.
