Herman Cain: Meet Clarence Thomas

It had to happen. No sooner does Herman Cain rocket to the top of the Republican polls then the media digs up something from a decade ago on him. Sexual harassment, be geezus.

Of course, I know nothing about these allegations, but isn't it amazing that the media, which had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the John Edwards case, has once again turned its best investigative reporters loose to dig into the past of Herman Cain? The same media who are ignoring Solyndra and Fast and Furious as we speak are showing their investigative skills once again, skills that we thought had eroded once we saw how precious little they vetted candidate Obama.

Perhaps, we will learn that Cain did act inappropriately within his work circle. To me, that means he used his position vis-a-vis the women involved to put inappropriate pressure on them for trists. Perhaps, we will learn that he merely made unsuccessful passes at women. (Who hasn't done that?)


Anyway, I guess we will have to tune in every day to find out if Herman Cain is a skirt-chaser, which, of course, if true, will disqualify him for the White House.

And he smokes cigars too.

Why does the name Gloria Allred pop into my mind?

I didn't notice any media aversion toward the Edwards case. Liberals responded like pirhana to raw meat, as did Fox of course. Liberal media are always ready to chew up their own former favorites at the slightest scent of blood, if only to congratulate themselves on getting there first.

Clarence Thomas should have been rejected because he couldn't answer questions about relevant legal precedent -- as he himself admits in his own autobiography. I did not realize the depth of his incompetence until I read it in his own words.

Anita Hill was a sideshow. So is this brouhaha over Cain's sexuality. The man is a clown. We don't need this sideshow kicking up a cloud of dust, which can only hide his real disqualifications.

Really?? For how many weeks was the National Enquirer the only publication doing the story? How many posts did I do sending "clues" to the mainstream media on a story they were ignoring like the 800 pound gorilla in the room?
