Have y’all seen THIS Herman Cain video?

The “smoking” one wasn’t the only one to make you wonder about the nature of that grin on the candidate’s face at the end.

Have you seen this one? What do you think?

    Words are insufficient to express my reaction to that spot–at least words I can use on this blog (or ‘most anywhere else). ROFL@Cain.

    Our incumbent’s teleprompter crutch would be any president’s Achilles Heel.

    Obamna’s undeserved and demeaning stereotyping of minorities (as citizens and illegals of any race nurtured by government to expect lifetime government assistance) was just attacked by none other than Tavis Smiley, also.

    When two accomplished black men from disparate ends of the political spectrum both rise to factual, however subtle, complaints about Obama the truth is bound to resonate among many, many realists. Let’s call them independents like me.

    Cain may have a much bigger problem to deal with. Politico is reporting sexual harrassment allegations.

    Yeah, I heard that. NPR interviewed the Politico guy who broke the story. As he mentioned having learned about this the last few weeks, I got to wondering: Who brought his attention to it, and why?

    Well, the obvious guess would be his recently-threatened opponents. But I got to think about how if that’s the case, it seems like a case of overkill. Instead, his opponents should pony up money to air his videos everywhere, and as America gets totally wierded out, their Herman Cain problem would go away on its own.

    I thought that, and I also thought, here we go again, with white men perpetuating the story about how black men just can’t leave women alone…

    “with white men perpetuating the story about how black men just can’t leave women alone…”

    A group you appear to be a member of since nobody else had mentioned that.

    Just like the rumors about Nikki Haley’s infidelity thwarted her electability, I suppose?

    Thoughtful independents detect that too common odor of unscrupulously skulking lawyers, j and Brad. Other “independents”, those bonded by the Democratic Party, would not vote for Cain in the Republican primary in any case.

  7. Brad

    Yep, Doug, I’m one of them. And I’ll say it: Black men have a weakness when it comes to women. You know why? Because they’re MEN.

    Anyway, I didn’t say it first. Clarence Thomas did. Remember the “high-tech lynching?

  8. Doug Ross


    Don’t know about you, but I’ve never had a weakness when it comes to women. I just say, “Yes, dear” and it all works out fine.

    Seriously, I must travel in different circles than you do because I can’t think of a time where I witnessed or even heard of sexual harassment in the workplaces I’ve been in. It’s not an inherent trait of males to be horndogs… it’s a product of upbringing.

    Not sure it’s entirely a male thing either. I’ve witnessed sexual harrassment from a woman harrassing a man.

  10. Brad

    Yes, and I DO find it awkward having to spur their advances.

    I mean SPURN. Spurn their advances…

    To be serious myself… I’m probably at a disadvantage, having worked most of my adult life in newsrooms (and editorial offices that are culturally similar to newsrooms in this regard). They’re not exactly the kinds of places where you get away with that sort of thing, so you seldom see it.

    Oh, I can remember one or two cases… such as the editor who made the remark found in the last graf of this post.

    Of course, he said that only in the presence of males. So… is that sexual harassment, or creating a hostile working environment, or whatever, if no woman hears it.

    Reminds me of the feminist twist on the old Zen kōan (I think that’s what it’s called). This has to be spoken by a woman to work: “If a man says something in the forest, and there’s no woman there to hear him, is he still wrong?”

    It’s a power ‘thing’ too. It’s a man’s or a woman’s way of saying, “I’m the boss, and you have to accept it.”

    Biggest harrassment law suite in SC government history was a bunch of women harrassing another woman.
