The horror! Bring the smelling salts!
So far, this is the worst Herman Cain has been accused of (the brute): saying to a woman, “Darling, do you mind doctoring my tea for me?” According to an Iowa radio host, Steve Deace, Cain had the audacity to say this to one of the radio station’s workers and it made her “uncomfortable.”
But wait, there’s more. In the same article, there’s a photo of Herman Cain hugging Michelle Bachman! Hugging! It’s clear evidence the man is a sexual predator.
Okay, it’s actually not.
Look, Cain is not my number one pick for Republican nominee. (I’m a Perry fan, which probably means he’s doomed not to make it to the California primaries. I also choose the wrong line in supermarkets. It’s a curse.) I don’t think he’s handling these attacks well and it seems awkward to me when someone as successful as Cain plays the victim card. However, the attacks on Cain are getting silly and some of the racially charged language used about him are shocking (the hate language montage starts around minute 3.50).
It’s going to be a long primary season.
