Herman Cain adds to his oeuvre as a avant-garde political commercial auteur.
See what you all did? You deprived us of more stuff like this!
“Rock You Like a Herman Cain”: This rewrite of The Scorpions classic just played on the loudspeakers at this Herman Cain event. We kid you not.
After being criticized for his slow response to sexual harassment allegations, presidential candidate Herman Cain on Monday refuted a story that has yet to come out.
“It was pretty simple,” Ginger White told an Atlanta TV station in an interview set to air at 6 p.m. Monday evening. “It wasn’t complicated. I was aware that he was married. And I was also aware I was involved in a very inappropriate situation, relationship.”
Even as Cain denied the accusations on television, his lawyer told the station in a statement that his client would not be responding publicly.
“[T]his appears to be an accusation of private, alleged consensual conduct between adults — a subject matter which is not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public,” wrote Wood. “Mr. Cain … has no obligation to discuss these types of accusations publicly with the media and he will not do so even if his principled position is viewed unfavorably by members of the media.”
Just let that part in bold sink in.
I’m convinced that Herman Cain’s campaign is all an elaborate prank on the American people that will be made into a documentary.
…I can dream, can’t I?
Did Cain just follow the Daily Show for campaign advice by coming up with a new harassment suit to remain relevant and make you forget about his “Syria?” video? I mean I know the man has already put Pokemon and The Simpsons into his talking points, so I wouldn’t put it past him.
Herman Cain, in the process of excoriating the formerly Democratic House for not passing a piece of legislation, referred to then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi as “Princess Nancy.” That he couldn’t recognize such a crack won’t serve him well in the midst of a sexual harassment scandal is a surprising thing, even for somebody with no political experience; Nancy Pelosi was, after all, the first female Speaker in American history, and as such does occupy a trailblazer role in our political culture. Bad move by Cain, though the GOP audience did seem receptive.
I was happy to see this didn’t get laughs from Romney or Gingrich who were in the wide shot when he made this comment.
This is funny to the 999’s.
Full disclosure: I actually love Godfather’s pizza.
Mike Tyson as Herman Cain in his campaign promises video.
“Why? Cuz the Tea Party loves crazy more than they hate black” (Mike Tyson just earned back so many points in my book!)
Politico reports that the cash settlement for one of the women accusing Herman Cain of sexual harassment bears the date: September of 1999. No joke.
On a related note, if you missed Michelle Cottle’s Daily Beast piece from a few weeks back about Cain’s obsession with numerology (and one number in particular), it’s definitely worth a read.
Can’t make this stuff up.
Rand Paul also uses this opportunity to call Cain’s accuser a coward for not ‘putting her name to it,’ ignoring the fact that she’s legally bound from doing so.
I guess he learned how to respect women from his father.
Rick Perry calls Herman Cain “brother” - twice.
You’d think after the Hunting lodge name scandal that Rick Perry would be more careful of trying not to appear racist. But calling Herman Cain “brother” twice, in condescending attacks…that’s just…wow. Maybe Rick Perry has the loudest dog whistle ever.
