More Herman Cain

In News on November 9, 2011 at 12:25 am

For some reason Herman Cain saying “Excuse me! Excuse me!” strikes me as funny (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EykRSKVKr3A), and I can’t get it out of my cerebral cortex or deduce what about it strikes me as so amusing; if not perhaps for the fact that a legitimate Presidential contender (or so we’re told, according to polls) is behaving in such a manner and speaking in such an entitled and obviously angry tone.

Herman Cain‘s been a busy Presidential candidate lately, although I’m sure in ways his handlers and staffers wish they did not have to confront, that is in the arena of multiple sexual harassment allegations.

As most readers know, Cain’s had four accusers so far, and number four has gone public, and number two has gone public as of today as well.

Cain has said repeatedly that he never engaged in sexual harassment or behavior that could approach sexual harassment. Then he later recalled that he had told a woman, sexual harassment accuser number two, apparently standing under his chin, that she was the same height as his wife. What this has to do with working in a professional environment is anyone’s guess. But….

Now in one of the most current news stories on Herman Cain’s ongoing parade of accusers, Mr. Cain said that he did not recall nor recognize accuser number four either, although he felt confident that she was a plant from the “Democratic machine” that is out to get him. That link is here: http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/herman-cain-democrat-machine/story?id=14907611#.Trm_j3KwV6Q.

Then, apparently, later on in that same day, Mr. Cain asserted that he would take a lie detector test to prove that he can’t recall accuser number four, Sharon Bialek, here at this link (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57320946-503544/herman-cain-id-take-lie-detector-test-to-rebut-sharon-bialek-claims/),

but he then added for good measure, “But I’m not going to do that unless I have a good reason to do that. Of course I would be willing to do a lie detector test.”

Herman Cain Speaks At Values Voter Summit

How can his “ship of state” continue to sail, seriously, after all these allegations? Even if you believe that one or two accusers are paid staffers or actresses or deluded somehow, can all four be just “out to get” this candidate? In my opinion, Cain’s well-paid handlers and messaging massagers should have told Cain to simply acknowledge a prior lifestyle and behavior that has since been outgrown as a result of a serious commitment to fidelity, counseling, and upholding proud American values. The fact that they didn’t tell him to do this, and just keep refusing to acknowledge anything, and then let him slip out “explanations,” show a profound lack of campaign organization and unity, in my humble widdle estimation.

But that’s just me.
