Disgusting… this whole thing just gets more and more gross by the hour.
They also called Sharon Bialek a “fat bimbo.”
Then again, what else would you expect from people who hear someone being accused of at least four cases of sexual harassment and rushing to give them money at record rates?
I think the saddest quotes in this article are from the women who are jumping to the defense of their harassers, claiming that other women need to “lighten up” and that the accusations against Cain aren’t a big deal because they hear worse in the workplace over at Fox (as though them hearing worse is acceptable).
They answer their own question with a staunch, “No.” Those of us with “brains” and “functioning eyes and ears” disagree.
Here’s a brand new Herman Cain campaign ad, sure to be pulled from YouTube any minute now, starring his chief of staff, Mark Block, who is, we’re guessing, drunk. (As is, apparently, the guy who filmed this on what we’re assuming is an iPhone.) But, really, the horrible panning and cheap tilt-shift filter are nothing compared to what happens at the 40-second mark. Just trust us on this one, okay? We told you the guy was stupid!

What did I just watch?
omg please watch this before it gets pulled you will not regret it
OMG OMG OMG you really really really should watch this.
I fucking lost it. I can just picture Mark Block insisting and saying, “It will be cool, ok? Trust me.”
Alright, I don’t know what I was expecting at the :40 mark but I was not expecting that…
This is the best political ad since Carly Fiorina’s demon sheep.
Herman Cain doesn’t really give a fuck if you got raped, no abortion for you.
Conservatives Are Outraged … at Herman Cain
It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Rick Perry, and now, with the Washington Post throwing him into a racial controversy, things are about to get … much better! Wait, what? Let’s backtrack a bit. Yesterday, the Post published a bombshell story about a hunting camp the Perry family has leased on and off since the early eighties.
Asked yesterday about the story, [Herman] Cain, the only black Republican in the race, lashed out at Perry. “Since Governor Perry has been going there for years to hunt, I think that it shows a lack of sensitivity for a long time of not taking that word off of that rock and renaming the place,” Cain said on This Week.
Cain’s reaction is certainly understandable. Anyone could find the revelations offensive, and Cain is a black man who grew up in the segregated South. And yet, as Michael Tomasky points out today, it’s Cain, not Perry, who could be damaged the most by this story. To understand why, you have to consider that there are two things Republicans hate more than anything. One is being accused of racism, which has happened with increasing frequency since President Obama became president, and, if you ask Republicans, is never, ever justified. Two is unfair treatment by the allegedly biased mainstream media. So among Republicans, the widespread response to the Post story was not, “wow, Rick Perry messed up.” It was, “the liberal media is smearing another Republican as a racist!”
Please, God. Don’t make me have to defend Herman Cain. This is such a sick joke. Please?!?!?!!?!?!?
Boy said those People and capitalized us. Lol. Wtf? I mean, this is typical tactics but are we going to play this game with the word NIGGER staring us right in the face still. Or is their now some nifty new white method of saying even that word, not nigga, not nig, nigs, niggaz (you know the semantics whites play) but NIGGER is no way racist in any way. I find the desire to be the victim by white folks quite laughable except for when it isn’t. Which is you know… never.
Is the republican party finally being forced to acknowledge race & racism?
I’m going to follow this to see how they deal with this, but chances are i’m going to be either disappointed or enraged. Regardless… lets see how this turns out…
If Cain ever forgot he was Black, he has now been reminded.
My head hurts.
