Ever since Ginger White dropped the 13-year affair bomb, Herman Cain just hasn’t had time to talk face to face with wifey. He told reporters, according to the New York Daily News that “Since I’ve been campaigning all week, I haven’t had the opportunity to sit down with her.”
Excuse me, mister? (clears throat) Haven’t had time?
By November 7, three women had already accused Cain of sexual harassment including Sharon Bialek who even provided us with an unbleachable mental image of Cain’s unconventional job interview tactics. Bialek gave us the play-by-play explaining that while the two were sitting in the car after the pregame dinner and drinks, Cain stuck his hand under her skirt while grabbing her head and pushing it toward his crotch. She said that when she called a penalty, Cain responded, “You want a job, right?”
Appearing on Fox, wife, Gloria Cain refuted the sexual harassment accusations against her husband by saying, “I know the type of person he is. He totally respects women. I’m thinking he would have to have a split personality to do the things that were said.”
Well Gloria, if three sexual harassment charges make Herman a split personality candidate what’s the diagnosis for a 13-year affair? I’m guessing full-blown schizophrenia but I’m no doctor. I do know this, if Ginger White accused my husband (let’s pretend I’m married here) publicly of a 13-year affair (presidential candidate or not) he better book a G6, twin-engine, jet airplane home and catch a jet stream on the way.
Keeping consistent with Cain’s current campaign tone, women and self-respecting men are finding time to push their own reassess buttons. Hopefully, Gloria knows where to find hers.
