Brace yourself: I was a closet supporter of Herman Cain. When a minority makes it to the top in corporate world, how can a bleeding heart liberal like me not have some sense of respect and admiration? I even wrote a blog about this silly obsession Americans have with men of power and influence who consider sexual conquests one of the many indulgences they’re entitled to. Men are pigs. We will buy as much sex and expensive cars as we possibly can. Duh.
With the recent ‘distractions’ I as looking for some sign of integrity and ownership of his actions.
What we got was this statement:
“As of today, with a lot of prayer and soul searching, I am suspending my presidential campaign,” Cain said at an appearance outside his campaign headquarters in Atlanta. “I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distraction, the continued hurt caused on me and my family. Not because we are not fighters.”
Are you kidding me? Might I have suggested some ‘prayer and soul searching’ sometime during the 13 year affair or maybe before you launched one of your many sessions of grab-ass?
How positively expected that a conservative Republican would drag out ‘prayer and soul searching’ as a balm for the damage cause by his inability to keep it zipped up.
Oh, and by the way–this ‘distraction’ is not what caused hurt to your family, your campaign and your already laughingstock party.
Your lying about who you were groping and having sex with is what caused the hurt.
Man up and own it.
