Metzenbaum Dies at 90 (posting 2008 story - revelant to the lies about Herman Cain
HotAir ^ | March 13, 2008 | Ed Morrissey

"...Unfortunately, this was not out of character for Metzenbaum. This same kind of ruthless attack style would blow up in Metzenbaum’s face during a little-remembered but defining moment of the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings. Metzenbaum attempted to smear one of Thomas’ witnesses in rebuttal to Anita Hill with a bizarre and unsworn allegation that John Doggett — himself an outspoken black liberal — had sexually harassed a white woman in his workplace during his first week at his law firm eight years prior to the hearings. It provided an eerie echo of the kind of accusation that Thomas himself was answering, and Doggett was outraged:..."

Doggett was able to counter the charges made during the hearings. ( read story)

We know about the charges made against Clarence Thomas and the similarity with the charges against Herman Cain, but most people don't know how the Democrats went after one of the character witnesses for Thomas, who was also a black male.

Hermie should start confessing to other things he didn’t DOO..
Like abusing his wife and chidren that he didn’t abort..

Anther thing Hermie didnt do was throw 2 Trillion dollars down a black hole.. Yes; a black one..
And literally no one knows (or will admit) where it went..
He should apologize.. (ON TV).. at a press briefing..

I 100% recall Joe Biden seated right next to Ted Kennedy attacking that Black man for defending Mr Thomas.

Biden was incredulous that the guy didn’t cuss.

Biden asked - so when you’re at home watching a ball game and your team losses , you don’t let out profanity?

I wish we could get the transcripts of the Biden attack on that man.

Thanks FR_addict.

In his first campaign for Senate, against fellow Demwit John Glenn, Metzenbaum accused Glenn of never having held a job because he was in the military.

Metzenbaum was the one who leaked Anita Hill’s name to begin with. Normally, that’s illegal, but then Metzenbaum was a Democrat, so no foul.

“Biden was incredulous that the guy didn’t cuss.”

Biden is an imbecilic, evil POS.

My granddad taught me not to speak ill of the dead. If he hadn’t, I’d have plenty to say right now.

“In his first campaign for Senate,...”

I remember when Ohio had the ‘priviledge’ of being represented by both of these two In his first campaign for Senate,

Along the same line, it would appear that there was an orchestrated cabal against Cain and this harassment thing. This is dowright eerie and if it goes too far we may end up in a totalitarian nightmare. See: The Chicago Way: O’Grady may be smoking fun for Cain attacks

One thing I remember about the Thomas hearings was my introduction to who Joe Biden was. He had recently gotten hair transplants and had a that baby doll hairplug look.

If bankrupting a great nation and throwing millions out of work does not disqualify a man for seeking a second term, obviously false allegations of being a cad 15 years ago should not disqualify a man for seeking a first.

I take no small comfort in the fact that ALL of these dirtbags will someday pass and then have to give account of their actions to their Maker.Ted Kennedy caused the death of several millions.Imagine having a load like that to bear.

With the automatic liberal assumption that black males are uncivilized savages, why do blacks keep voting democrat? I have never understood that.

I can say, however, that the attempt to portray Cain as an uncontrollable sexual or playboy certainly did make me pay more attention to him.

Thanks for the article. Hadn't read it before.
Since he mentions Ann Coulter’s article, I'll post hers here too:

As a former subject of Metzencrotch, you may recall that, a few years before he did die, he moved from Ohio to Florida. Ohio has a Democrat-supported state “death tax.” Florida doesn’t. Dying in Florida saved Metzencrotch’s estate MILLIONS in state death taxes alone.

Heh, I remembered you calling him “Metzencrotch” way back. That always cracked me up. And didn’t he make his fortune by charging for “parking” at the airport? Before that it was free. Royal bastard.
