As lies mount, Cain’s hubris grows

Herman Cain plays the victim card — didn’t see that coming.

WEST CHESTER, Ohio (AP) — His campaign rocked anew, a feisty Herman Cain claimed a “groundswell of positive support” from backers on Wednesday and accused critics of trying to derail his White House bid as he worked to stem the fallout from allegations of a 13-year extramarital affair.

“They’re attacking my character, my reputation and my name in order to try to bring me down,” a feisty Cain told a friendly crowd without naming his critics. “But, you see, I don’t believe that America is going to let that happen.”

Let this be my last post about disingenuous buffoon Herman Cain

It’s sad that the failure of Herman Cain’s campaign will be blamed on his sexual peccadilloes.

I would’ve preferred the embodiment of talk radio’s wet dream been disqualified due to his uncomfortably long embrace of stupidity.

We need a leader, not a reader.”

Damn elitist multi-taskers!

Earlier tonight Cain delivered what was to be a “formalization” of the candidate’s views on foreign policy. He would’ve been better off taking questions from reporters about his affair (including “alleged” would be an insult to your intelligence, like saying you phone women at 4:30 in the morning to offer them financial advice).

A sampling:

Like any self-respecting motivational speaker, Cain brought along his own overhead projector.

Cain unveiled a new map to illustrate his view on America’s relationship with other countries.

Explaining the map to those in attendance at the speech, Cain described the map of the world, and pointed out that it included highlights showing the density of Facebook connections.

“Where you see the most liked, that’s where there is the most amount of freedom. Secondly, where you see the most liked is where you see the greatest amount of economic development,” he said. …

Libya, which he famously stumbled through an answer about in an editorial board interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel earlier this month, is listed as “clarity needed.”

Herman Cain is a moron.

He’s also a bigot who is a “great friend” to other bigots.

He knows nothing about history, as demonstrated by his endorsement of Tiger Woods for president.

History may bode well for a Tiger Woods presidential bid. In 1952, Dwight Eisenhower, then a popular former World War II general and Supreme Commander of Allied forces in Europe, cruised to victory with 83 percent of the electoral vote over political insider Adlai Stevenson, the Democratic governor of Illinois.

(Because winning The Masters is every bit as impressive as successfully invading France and Germany during WWII.)

If nothing else, judge him by his supporters.

She says she has known him for 12 years and he’s “never been anything but a gentlemen – and I am not an unattractive woman.”

[Lori] Klein suggested that if Cain is innocent he should sue White for libel and went on to attack the media for digging up the allegations. She also said that in politics, “we want a virgin to do a hooker’s job.”

Klein is a state senator from Arizona notorious for carrying her raspberry-pink gun around the Capitol and pointing it at a reporter’s face. She is the new front-runner for the GOP nomination.

I wonder if she knows China already has nukes.

I think we can safely call Herman Cain a religious bigot

If the pattern continues Cain will apologize for these comments and say something similarly ignorant a week from now:

He did have a slight worry at one point during the chemotherapy process when he discovered that one of the surgeon’s name was “Dr. Abdallah.”

“I said to his physician assistant, I said, ‘That sounds foreign–not that I had anything against foreign doctors–but it sounded too foreign,” Cain tells the audience. “She said, ‘He’s from Lebanon.’ Oh, Lebanon! My mind immediately started thinking, wait a minute, maybe his religious persuasion is different than mine! She could see the look on my face and she said, ‘Don’t worry, Mr. Cain, he’s a Christian from Lebanon.’”

“Hallelujah!” Cain says. “Thank God!”

The crowd laughs uneasily.
