Alveda King: I know a skirt chaser when I see one. Herman Cain is no skirt chaser.
The Right Scoop ^ | 11/30/11 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 11/30/2011 2:21:52 PM PST by hiram569

Last night Alevda King went on CNN to defend Herman Cain. She says she’s known him since 2000 and that he is absolutely not a “skirt chaser”.

It’s about time that someone with heft defends Herman Cain. And I agree with Alevda and don’t think he’s guilty of any impropriety.

Even if he was, i’d still support him. I’m sick of this “low-T” metrosexual president. One thing’s for sure, no *women* will come forward accuing Obama of hitting on her.

She may be right, but Velveeta is pretty homely.

She might not know much about men.

She's certainly got heft! But really Alveda...just the fact that he hasn't chased your skirt doesn't prove anything.

Wait a minute. This is Herman Cain, right? Godfather’s Pizza CEO and Chairman of the National Restaurant Association. Isn't that heft enough? Why does he need someone else to defend him? Why doesn't he defend himself before the American people by GOING ON THE OFFENSE and demand specifics and evidence that can be weighted and disproved if false?

I saw some biased anchor on Fox News interviewing Niger Innis, asking why Cain isn’t dropping out. The anchor was claiming that the woman was credible, and he’s had too many charges for it to not be true.

The point is, that she would have been in as good a position as anyone to have heard the scuttlebutt and talked with the women involved, had Herman Cain actually been a misbehaver. I’m inclined to think the troubled women who have complained are more likely to have wished that the handsome (especially decades ago) Herman Cain had chased their skirts, than to have experienced it.

Welcome to the United Soviet States of America..where the Pravda State Media “vet” the candidates to the pleasure and needs of the RinoCrat UniParty.

This “election” will be a non-election...featuring the state approved “candidates”-whose only distinction is whether they are black or white.

It sounds like something ginned up by rats. They don’t care that the pre-presidential Bill Clinton had a bimbo problem which had a little more, er, meat in it.

Alveda King is a King family outcast. She did speak at the MLK memorial dedication but only through a recorded message.

Sorry, I'm not buying that for a second. The allegations against Cain are pretty sordid and seamy. That's not the kind of thing you share with your church lady friends. No way. She's the last person who would have been in the know...except for his wife.

And anyhow I just so happened to look Alveda up in Wikipedia, which is having a donation drive right now. I saw Alveda, then I saw the picture of a wizened gal who had written 600 plus Wikipedia articles. I don’t think Alveda’s the dog!

Yeah. She later said that discovering that Beck and Palin were required to wear armor was an epiphany for her. She said she really didn't realize how much hatred and rage there was on the left till that day.

He was just on Cavuto and said he believes these attacks are coming from the left because he has been rising in the polls and is a threat to them. He said he had stage 4 cancer some of the time in question and also is shocked that this woman he helped did this. He said he has helped many people. Cavuto asked him why all of these kinds of attacks are just coming at him and not Newt or others. He said maybe they hope to take him out with these attacks and then go after Newt. He did say these attacks are taking a toll on his wife and he needs to spend time with the family and assess the impact upon the family as well as the supporters. But (he smiled really big) “his wife did tell him she loves him today.” He said his lawyer is attempting to get the phone records to prove who texted who at 4:30am. The interview will be up on Cavuto within a couple of hours. I never did believe any of these women and I always did suspect the left.

“....pretty women don’t. Wake up!”

Hmmmm. Amusing statement, considering the pretty women we see on the silver screen. I recall a statement Antonio Banderas made during an interview. The topic of dicussion involved his wifes, Melanie Griffith, love of plastic surgery. Let us say that he expressed something akin to, “Enough!”.

If there was a world wide flood the only survivors would be the women in Hollywood.

Going after the family. That’s what they did with Sarah Palin, and now with Herman Cain. And if Newt gains a clear advantage in the limelight? Newt’s family situation is like a crap factory to a swarm of flies.

She may be right, but Velveeta is pretty homely.

She might not know much about men.

******************************

From Wikipedia:

Alveda Celeste King (born January 22, 1951)[4] is an American Christian minister,[5] conservative, pro-life activist, and author. She is a niece of the civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. and daughter of the late civil rights activist Rev. A. D. William King, Sr. and his wife Naomi Barber King.

She is the full-time Pastoral Associate of African-American Outreach for the Roman Catholic pro-life group, Priests for Life.[6] She once served as a Senior Fellow at the Alexis de Tocqueville Institution, a conservative Washington, D.C. think-tank. She is a former member of the Georgia House of Representatives and the founder of King for America. She has been married and divorced three times.

She may know more than you suspect. :)
