As a presidential candidate, Herman Cain’s greatest distinction has been that he’s not only clueless about foreign countries, he totally doesn’t get half the voters in America — women.
Consequently, Cain “suspended” his campaign yesterday. He may have succeeded in blowing off multiple reports of random ass-grabbing a few weeks ago, but the latest revelation of a 13-year affair with a woman living near Cain’s doorstep in Georgia FINALLY caused his campaign contributors to head for the exits.
But why did Ginger White decide to come forward? She and Cain were apparently tight until she did, if the volume of texts they exchanged recently is any indication.
White said she decided to speak out after seeing Cain totally trash the other women, claiming they were ALL lying, unstable, doing it for money out of desperation. White must have thought her more current, solid claim of his infidelity would get him to come clean.
Cain’s now calling White’s story “garbage,” and she says going public has been “humiliating.”
Yet, Cain admits he’s been helping to support this “troubled,” garbage-spewing liar (unbeknownst to his wife) out of the sheer goodness of his heart.
If nothing else, Cain’s proven a magnet for unbalanced babes who harbor a maniacal urge to bring him down, no matter how much mud they’re dragged through.
It must be the current political climate, where so many people prize ignorance above diamonds, that emboldens guys like Cain and Jerry Sandusky to think their pathetic attempts to bury their stinky business and shred their victims’ characters will vindicate them.
But it’s best that voters see this side of Cain now. If he crumbles under the “lies” of a few “unstable” women, what would he do in a REAL crisis? Hide under the bed?
So Cain’s campaign is kaput. “Suspended” my foot. When you make Newt Gingrich look good, you’re toast. Cain ends up on the trash heap with Bachmann, Perry, Santorum, Paul, and Huntsman (who always seemed too qualified and sensible to have a chance.)
Cain claims he’s now at peace with God and his wife. I can’t speak for God, but his wife was probably standing behind him at gunpoint while he made his drop-out speech — just in case he decides to try again in 2016.
But I don’t think it will surprise anyone if, after the Secret Service and TV cameras pull out, Herman wakes up one morning to find his clothes in a bonfire on the front lawn.
