Posted on 11/08/2011 6:30:59 AM PST by martosko
Mondays Gloria Allred-assisted bombshell about Herman Cain is inspiring a wide range of reactions from all corners of the American political landscape. Liberals are occupying the narrow dynamic range between we-told-you-so and general Schaddenfreude. But conservatives positions seem decidedly mixed. This shouldnt be so.
Everything should have changed Monday for future Republican primary voters, even for die-hard riders of the Cain Train.
What was previously a smattering of anonymous sexual harassment accusations has now become a very specific allegation of sexual assault. And what had suggested a tenuous analogy to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas now evokes a firm President Clinton déjà vu.

The Cain Train is not derailed by bottom feeders.
...and we all know how Paula, Juanita & Kathleen used to hug Bill at Campaign events.
The only relevant story in all this is how the left will do anything to stop independent thinking, especially among black people—and how they will commit the most extreme moral crimes in order to accomplish their goal.
At this point, I can practically guarantee you that this women is suffering from some sort of mental illness and has probably been seeing a therapist for a decade or more.
I know EXACTLY what kind of woman she is, someone a couple of posts up hit the nail on the head calling her a two bagger. This is the kind of crazy middle aged skank ho, that sleazy middle aged men use then toss away like toilet paper because no matter how much she puts out, she is so freaking nuts it doesnt matter. But from 20 feet she looks sort of hot, and makes a little man look like a big shot at a party, and it’s a guaranteed lay at the end of the night, followed quickly by the man escaping from her room filled with teddy bears or unicorns or whatever her particular obsession is.
this woman needs serious psychological help, and Gloria Alred should be ashamed to have exploited such an obviously deranged individual in such a public way.
This isn’t a “Bill Clinton” moment. It is the REAL Clarence thomas. Specific? Let me give you speicific: Coke can.
This is rather odd. Witness: Cain accuser hugged him during Tea Party meeting a month ago http://tinyurl.com/7kf2tbc
REAL Clarence thomas = Real clarence thomas moment
Sadly true. I was very offfended by the comparisons with Thomas, because first of all, there was no paper trail (Cain actually had two employment complaints against him) and the allegations were more than tenuous. Also, I don’t like the race card that Cain is playing: he is not being attacked for being black, and any white GOP candidate with that track record would have had exactly to answer exactly the same questions. He knew what was in his past and he should have been prepared to answer when he became a candidate.
But the sad thing is that GOPers are acting exactly like the Dems when Bill was accused: trashing the women, saying all women are liars, and if it really happened, it was all “just about sex” anyway. It’s actually about honesty and trustworthiness - and judgment, none of which I would say are possessed by Cain.
So sorry your offended.....are you a Willard supporter?

so you find this lady at all credible. I do not. The first one was clearly and undeniably a bottom feeder who made false accusations, found not credible and shown the door for the lowest possible severance package.
There was a $850,000 settlement in a Clinton case..a legal settlement of the case. With Cain, there was no settlement on the charges, and simply a minor severance package agreement to go away for $35,000. As many corporate attorneys have stated, that is the award for a nuisance case, not a case with cause.
I couldn’t disagree more. On a more probable than not basis (IMHO, fairly significantly more probable than not, based on what we know), this woman is out and out lying.
If the woman is out and out lying, the meme here is the Clarence Thomas meme—this is nothing but a high tech lynching.
And even if what she said were (mostly) true, so what? The guy made a crude pass—and stopped when the woman said no. It does NOT involve a chronic misuse of power, the way Clinton’s problems did.
So, if a gold digger makes an accusation, it must be true.
As far as “trash the women” this accuser doesn’t make sense. If she was attacked by Cain, why would she have him drive her home? Why wouldn’t she do anything at the time? Why would she gush over him at a campaign stop? I know they say when there is smoke there is fire, but this isn’t even good smoke- hard to tell if it is smoke or just clouds. I think she is mental and looking for attention.
Those reactions may be wrong; but the presence of dem operative Gloria Alred certainly makes this whole thing look like a setup.
Dry ice makes smoke, too.
Why all the Clinton comparisons when we have a better, more recent example to compare it to? Sharon Bialik is the Larry Craig of the 2012 election. Until her story is vetted, she shouldn’t be taken any more seriously than the media wanted us to take Larry Craig’s story.
Nothing but class, right? Now wonder you fail to see what the real issue is.
