…..”Topics planned for tomorrow include: Does the sheer number of Cain accusers mean that we should think there must be something to the allegations? How did the candidates perform in the debates this week? Who is your favorite at this point? For whom could you tolerate voting? Is there yet another truly horrible provision of Obamacare, one that might also make it unconstitutional? What does it say about our culture that college students are more upset about a coach being fired, than about the sexual abuse he helped to cover up? And more…

Cain’s accusers.

RRD:Cain has now been accused of sexual harassment by someone who actually has a name & a face(fn1).The Daily Caller sums up my view of this latest story in a e-mail they sent out(the text does not seem to be available on their website) ..’Okay, so: Bialek was fired by the NRA in 1997 after working there for six whole months. Then she requested a face-to-face meeting with the president of the organization that had just fired her, to ask about finding a new job. A phone call wouldn’t have done it, apparently. And she didn’t tell Cain she was there about a job until dinner. And the whole thing wasn’t her idea in the first place, but her boyfriend’s. And then Cain groped her and told her it was part of the job interview. And she’s coming forward almost 15 years later, after a week of non-stop coverage of unspecified accusations by anonymous accusers, on behalf of women everywhere. After Gloria Allred gets her face time, of course. Hm. Well, sure, could be. The important thing is that an accuser’s story about wrongdoing by a presidential candidate must be taken at face value, with no questions asked. Isn’t that right, Larry Sinclair? “…

RRD:Cain has denied the accusations.But there’s more:

Herman Cain accuser has history of financial troubles, legal squabbles – chicagotribune.com http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/ct-met-herman-cain-accuser-1108-20111108,0,2247743,full.story

….”Bialek said she shared her allegations with her then-boyfriend and another male friend shortly after her meeting with Cain. However, the man she is now engaged to said she did not tell him about her history with the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO until Friday night, when she told him she was going to New York for the news conference. “… …. “Records show she twice has filed for personal bankruptcy, first in 1991 and then again in 2001. In the latter case, she claimed $5,700 in assets and more than $36,000 in liabilities. Among the creditors seeking payment was a management firm demanding back rent of $4,500, four credit card companies and a lawyer asking for his legal fees. After the case was discharged, she accused a former boyfriend of harassing her for repayment of a loan, court records in the bankruptcy case show. Bialek borrowed $4,500 from William Concha, though Concha now believes she had no intention of paying him back, according to his brother, Mario. Reached Monday night in Spain, William Concha declined comment. At least two liens have been filed against Bialek…..”

RRD:Of course her financial problems and her willingness to recruit Gloria Allred as her attorney only add credence to her story.Just ask Karl Rove(fn2).(I wonder if Rove is connected to this?I must consult my anonymous sources.)Other questions:Why didn’t she file a police report?Why didn’t she file a lawsuit?Oh,but Robert many women who are assaulted don’t report it.True,the fact that she did not file a report does not “disprove” her assertions(and right now that’s all they are),but making a report and filing a lawsuit would have added some credibility to her claim.What’s more,why didn’t she come forward when Cain ran for the Senate? And then there’s this:

Witness: Cain accuser hugged him during Tea Party meeting a month ago – http://www.suntimes.com/news/sneed/8592168-452/witness-says-cain-accuser-hugged-him-during-tea-party-meeting-a-month-ago.html

RRD:On the other hand another woman has come forward to accuse Cain of asking a woman out to dinner.

“[Donella] ….said the USAID paid Cain to deliver a speech to businessmen and women in Egypt in 2002, during which an Egyptian businesswoman in her 30s asked Cain a question. “And after the seminar was over,” Donella told The Washington Examiner….

RRD:Here it comes,the death blow to the Cain candidacy.

…..”Cain came over to me and a colleague and said, ‘Could you put me in touch with that lovely young lady who asked the question, so I can give her a more thorough answer over dinner?'”

…. RRD:But it gets worse,you see Cain asked the question IN A WAY THAT MADE DONELLA UN-COM-FOR-TABLE!(Thunder-crack!The door blows open!!) …

“Donella, who no longer works for USAID, said they were suspicious of Cain’s motives and declined to set up the date.”…

RRD:But the horrors,don’t stop there!After asking one woman out for dinner!!Cain…asked another woman out for dinner!!!(Another Thunder-crack!The door blows open a second time!!)

….”Cain responded, “Then you and I can have dinner.”….

RRD:(MUSIC FROM PSYCHO!)

…”That’s when two female colleagues intervened [RRD:To save her from a fate worse than death!] and suggested they all go to dinner together, Donella said. Cain exhibited no inappropriate sexual behavior during the dinner, though he did order two $400 bottles of wine and stuck the women with the bill, she said.[RRD:STONE HIM!] The next time the women heard from Cain was Christmas, when he sent them his gospel CD.[RRD:W-H-Y???What were his REAL MOTIVES!!Was the CD coated with a poison that can be absorbed through the skin?!!Or was it a exploding CD!Or did it have subliminal messages that can only be heard by Obama supporters when played backwards?!] Donella said she felt it was important to describe her encounter with Cain after hearing more serious allegations of sexual harassment brought by other women. “I couldn’t swear that he had some untoward intentions, [RRD:No need,you’ve suffered enough from the brute] but we all thought his tone was suspect and we didn’t feel comfortable putting him in touch with that woman,” Donella recalled. “I think [Cain] should not be a serious candidate for the presidential nomination because of what I’ve seen,” said Donella, an independent who said she voted for President Obama in 2008 and probably will again next year. “He’s not a person I would want running the country.” ..

RRD:I know that there will be some Cain supporters who will cling to the fantasy that Cain is innocent,despite the overwhelming evidence of his guilt:3 anonymous accusers,one accuser on record,and one dinner accusation leveled by a Obama supporter.But can there truely be any doubt?!Let us nominate Mitt Romney.A man who will not have accusations of sexual harassment made against him,(at least not until he gets the nomination when women will suddenly accuse him of sexually harrassment,polygamy,Molech worship etc.)

Pajamas Media joins the lynching of Herman Cain #tcot #2012

RRD:In what borders on self-parody,PJM first publishes breathless–and anonymous–accusations against Cain,and then retracts them.Does PJM understand that anonymous accusations have NO VALIDITY WHATSOEVER. None.Nada.Zero. “But they’re Conservative”,so what? Romney “is conservative”(indeed PJM just ran a column telling us,in effect,to shut up and back Romney),Rick Perry “is consevative”.Who are these poor,poor anonymous little gossips?Have they donated to Romney or Perry’s campaign?

Politico reporters accused of fabricating charges against Cain,& of racism

RRD:Politico reporters Jonathan Martin,Maggie Haberman,Anna Palmer & Kenneth Vogel were accused of fabricating sexual harrassment charges against Herman Cain today. Sources,who prefer to remain anonymous,accused the reporters of literally making up the story out of whole cloth over lattes at Starbucks.Multiple anonymous sources have also described the reporters as making racially tinged remarks about Herman Cain.The multiple anonymous sources accused Jonathan Martin in particular of making statements,that,while not overtly racist,had a kind of racist aura about them,which caused the multiple anonymous sources to feel discomfort. Remember,its the seriousness of the charge.        Herman Cain accused by two women of inappropriate behavior – Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman and Anna Palmer and Kenneth P. Vogel – POLITICO.com    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1011/67194.html   …”The sources —including the recollections of close associates and other documentation —describe episodes that left the women upset and offended. These incidents include conversations allegedly filled with innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature, taking place at hotels during conferences, at other officially sanctioned restaurant association events and at the association’s offices. There were also descriptions of physical gestures that were not overtly sexual but that made women who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable and that they regarded as improper in a professional relationship. “…..

The results of the #2012 Ames #Iowa straw poll & what they signify #tcot #teaparty #tlot

RRD:The Ames Straw Poll results are in. Percentages are approximations. 16,892 ballots 1.Bachmann 29% 2.Paul 28% 3.Pawlenty 14% 4.Santorum 10% 5.Cain 9% 6.Perry (write in) 4% 7.Romney (write in)3% 8.Gingrich (write in) 2% 9.Hunstman(write in) 69 votes 0.4% 10.Mccotter 35 votes 0.2% Bachmann wins Ames straw poll; Ron Paul takes second – TheHill.com http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/176771-bachmann-wins-ames-straw-poll ….”A House member has never finished in the top two; extraordinarily, two House lawmakers finished nearly neck-and-neck toward the top. Bachmann is the first woman to ever win the straw poll. “… RRD:What does Ames signify? ….”Of the five straw poll winners in history, three have gone on to win the Iowa caucus, two managed to secure the Republican nomination and only one has ever made it to the White House. Statistically speaking, a highly coveted win in Ames gives a candidate about a 20 percent chance of even getting on the ballot in the general election.”…. …”Ames is the first real test of voters’ confidence in each candidate…..” For example, many expected Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback to take the top spot at the 2007 straw poll. When he turned up with a comparatively dismal third place finish behind Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee, his supporters’ confidence was shaken and his fundraising reports showed it. From April to June, in the first quarter before the straw poll, Brownback raised more than $1.4 million. But the following quarter, which ran from July through October, his fundraising dropped to $925,000; by the last quarter of 2007, Brownback pulled in less than $140,000. In Ames, it is not necessarily about winning, but about doing better than expected, which is why the nine candidates on the ballot this year are all downplaying where they hope to finish. As ABC’s Matt Jaffe pointed out, Pawlenty has said he will be happy with anything higher than sixth place. “….
