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: “Without…

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…

Sarah Palin in blackface

Herman Cain is officially a joke. Defending his ignorance on foreign policy matters, Cain said Thursday, “We need a leader, not a reader.” That followed the cancellation of an interview with the New Hampshire Union Leader after the paper refused to exclude C-Span from videotaping it.

Evidence mounts against Cain

The ex-boyfriend of the Chicago woman who alleges she was sexually harassed by Herman Cain confirms Sharon Bialek’s account. Bialek came forward last week and alleged Cain put his hand up her skirt and groped her when she asked his help in finding a job. She and Zuckerman say Bialek met Cain several times while she was employed by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation in the 1990s. In a statement read to reporters in Shreveport, La., Zuckerman says Bialek went to dinner with Cain in Washington and returned “upset. She said Mr. Cain had touched her in an inappropriate manner.” Zuckerman,…

Herman Cain and his ‘great friend’ Michael Savage

Herman Cain hangs around with conspiratorial xenophobes (and that’s being kind): In July 2008, [Michael] Savage claimed that the increasing rate of autism diagnoses was the result of “a racket” designed to get disability payments for “poorer families who have found a new way to be parasites on the government.”     Related articles Herman Cain: I’ll Accept Secretary Of Defense Job “To Kick The You-Know-What Out Of Everyone In The World” (alan.com)

God must hate the U.S.

Bad enough He told Michele Bachmann to enter politics. Now the Almighty is alleged to have dared encouraged Herman Cain to run. “I prayed and prayed and prayed. I am a man of faith,” Cain told the Young Republican National Federation at the Westin Peachtree Plaza. “I had to do a lot of praying for this one, more praying than I have ever done before in my life. And when I finally realized that it was God saying that this is what I needed to do, I was like Moses: ‘You have got the wrong man, Lord. Are you sure?’ … Once…

Atlanta woman ID’d as Cain accuser

But Kraushaar family members who spoke to The Daily said the only lies were coming from Cain. “His denial of the whole thing, and his making light of it, seems to me to be more damaging to his character than the initial allegations,” said Karen Kraushaar’s sister-in-law, who asked not to be named. “If he would have just come out and said, ‘This is what happened,’ it would have been so much better for everybody.”

Herman Cain steals a page from Sharron Angle’s Pravda playbook

A compelling tale of sexual harassment by a non-anonymous source begs more than an insulting campaign pitch: “Activist celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred is bringing forth more false accusations against the character of Republican front-runner Herman Cain,” the statement said. “All allegations of harassment against Mr. Cain are completely false. Mr. Cain has never harassed anyone. Fortunately the American people will not allow Mr. Cain’s bold ’9-9-9 Plan’, clear foreign policy vision and plans for energy independence to be overshadowed by these bogus attacks.” Translated: You should only ask me questions I want to answer, which mirrors what he said Saturday night when…

Drudge implies Obama behind latest Cain accusation

Why else would this be the current link headline to a story about the FOURTH woman to accuse Cain of sexual harassment? CAIN ACCUSER FROM CHICAGO… Will the conservative media now subject Sharon Bialek, who said she is a Republican, to the same “smears” leveled against Cain? Dumb question.

What took her so long?

If you said 7 you win the “How Long Before Gloria Allred Capitalizes on the Herman Cain Sexual Harassment Scandal” contest. That’s not to say Allred’s client, who will speak out today on alleged sexual harassment at the hands of Cain, isn’t telling the truth. I’m just pointing out that her lawyer has been involved in scandals involving Michael Jackson, O.J. Simpson and Charlie Sheen and every D-Lister in between.
