Conservatives rallied around Herman Cain as he battles sexual harassment allegations, likening the attacks on the Republican presidential contender to what they describe as the "high-tech lynching" of another prominent black Republican: Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

I just have to say that I'm loving this.

Apparently sexual harassment is OK, so long as you're a black Republican.

Did I miss some evidence that this actually happened? This looks an awful lot like the usual political BS to me.

Well, two women are currently bound by non-disclosure agreements to not comment on their cases against Cain and a third woman has now come forward and alleged sexual harassment by him. Granted, that isn't "proof" of anything, but I think most people can see a disturbing pattern here.

Politics as usual (whether it's BS or not remains to be seen). If you are running for president it is inevitable that something like this will come out. That's why I find the playing the race card so ridiculous, especially considering that the people using it have spent the last 3 years complaining about its use.

Make that four now rather than three. And the fourth makes claims that, if true, no sane person of either party could pass of as a reasonable misunderstanding. “You want a job, right?”

I can't help but see this as symbolic of what America would actually be like under Cain's presidency.

Ha! Except that unlike Cain as pres of the restaurant association, the POTUS has, in reality, pretty close to zero power to actually create jobs, no matter how many people line up to give him a blowjob.
