    ah, the old failsafe
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

Of course, they also defended Clarence Thomas no matter what.

    I think it might have something to do with a person's political affiliations. It's just a hunch, though...
    Ironically, that's why I'm waiting for all the facts to roll in before making up my mind about this.

    Some of Cain's more recent comments aren't helping him, however.

    In American politics, the Southern strategy refers to the Republican Party strategy of winning elections in Southern states by exploiting anti-African American racism and fears of lawlessness among Southern white voters and appealing to fears of growing federal power in social and economic matters (generally lumped under the concept of states rights)

    It's a fair point.
    Scandal addicts: Trump, Coulter have racial outbursts, keeping themselves in headlines | The Cutline - Yahoo! News

    'When Michael Steele was running for Senate, liberals showed up and rolled Oreos down the aisle at him," Coulter added. "The only racism you hear is against conservative blacks--and it is vicious."

    No kidding. Settling is often cheaper than litigation and the risk of having a potted plant jury get played by a plaintiffs attorney and cream the innocent defendent. The fact that these settlements are so small strongly suggests the women didn't have a case.....if they did they would have had a few hundred plaintiffs bar lawyers clammering to represent them and win a huge award. If managemet thought they had a real legal exposure, they would have easily paid a lot more.

    What is relevant is the manner in how Cain responded to the issue being raised. His clumsy deflection exposed his lack of political savvy.
    I think he lacks campaigning savvy.

    Settlements are a double-edged sword. On the one hand they often are cheaper, when viewed as an individual case. On the other hand, they only serve to encourage more claims, many of which will be baseless as many will accept an easy settlement.

    That's why virtually every settlement has a confidentiality agreement.
