    Cause Cain flubbed it. There's a report that the issue was brought to the attention of his campaign days before it was made public. This is really a small potatoes issue that Cain made a big deal of by failing to remember.
    .
    "While the Cain campaign had first been approached by Politico 10 days before the story was first published, the candidate himself said he was only remembering many details of the incident on Monday."

    I may be wrong.

    Because of what we do know, there was an accusation in which the accuser was paid a settlement. As note above, Cain could have delt with this much easier and killed it early. He ddin't, which does show a certain amount of incompetence, though a flawed shared by many before him.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I guarantee you that this would have come out no matter who the candidate was, or what his or her race was. Same thing with Thomas.

    Incidentally, in case you missed it, a former long-time girlfriend of Thomas' recently confirmed many of Anita Hill's allegations. Thomas should never have been confirmed.

    Lillian McEwen breaks her 19-year silence about Justice Clarence Thomas
    So now that she's retired and hawking her memoirs she finally confirms what Hill put her reputation and career on the line for all those years ago. The coward. Thanks to her, we've got a pervert on the supreme court... for life!

    I won't be buying her damned book.

    ARe you saying it should be ignored? And are you saying it because you like Cain, or did you say the same about Bill Clinton?

    I hope that you do everything that you can to help Cain get the nomination. I know I am! I agree that with Palin out of the race, there is no better candidate for the GOP than Herman Cain. We need to get the GOP to know that he is a serious candidate and get them off the Romney train.....so I think we are in the same camp on this one.

Cain much better represents the GOP values of today and hopefully these allegations will serve only to rally the Republican party behind Cain!
    So you have given up on the Repubs nominating Palin and now have thrown your full weight behind Cain? Front runner!

    I never minded Clinton when he had that affair with Gennifer Flowers. It wasn't until he committed perjury in front of a Grand Jury, the rape charges and payoffs surfaced and the way Monica Lewinsky and Linda Tripp were publicly vilified by his people and the media. Far worse than Bill Clinton, in man ways, were Ted Kennedy and Robert Byrd.

    Has Cain's book tour lasted longer than Palin's or does it just feel like it has?
    Don't work out, work in.

    Yes, it is true. When I say "no case at all" I mean a case so weak it could be defeated in a motion to dismiss. The Association wouldn't have settled if the claims were demonstrably bogus.

    That's not the same as saying that the claims *weren't* bogus, but it probably would have come down to a he-said-she-said situation which would require litigation.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."
