Did you know that Herman Cain is facing accusations of sexual harassment from back when he was the head of the National Restaurant Association?
If you don’t, welcome back from that black hole.
Ever since this broke I wasn’t entirely interested in whether or not Cain had made a gesture or made someone feel uncomfortable. I’m far more interested in his 9-9-9 plan, the modified 9-0-9 plan, whether he can bone up on foreign policy and perhaps learn the name of the president of Uzbekistan, and if he could clarify once and for all his position on abortion.
Also, we’re still facing unruly riotous crime-ridden mobs squatting in major cities, harming local business and charity work; headlines have suggested a collaboration among the US, UK, and Israel for a strike on Iran; a top Obama donor and former Democrat governor of New Jersey just bankrupted his multi-billion dollar company; race-baiter and habitual liar Eric Holder is still attorney general and is stonewalling over ‘Fast and Furious'; the economy added a paltry 80,000 jobs last month, which did not keep pace with the number of people who have simply stopped looking for work and therefore aren’t counted against the unemployment rate; the Department of Health and Human Services continues its assault on religious liberty; Democrats in the Senate have introduced legislation to repeal DOMA; the Department of Energy and the White House are still stonewalling over Solyndra; Europe is on the verge of economic collapse, unless China (!) can bail them out; Bashar Assad has begun using tanks against protesters in Syria; the Horn of Africa isn’t exactly peaceful at the moment; then there’s Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber who are having bad weeks…
Okay, maybe the last two don’t rise to the level of the rest.
But seriously: keep an eye on the Cain allegations? Sure. If they’re true, and the behavior was worse than presently alleged, it speaks to his character in an unfavorable way. But there is so much more to talk about that is far more important.
The only reason this is still such a story is because of the horrible crisis management done by the Cain campaign. I don’t think they could have drawn up a worse response strategy than they have executed if they had tried.
And that may prove to be more politically damaging than the salacious allegations.
But seriously: Move. On.
