Herman Cain: I don't remember, I don't recall

..."But just because I don't remember signing a settlement/agreement re. sexual harassment doesn't mean I didn't sign it."

This guy reminds me so much of Mr. "Pubic Hair on the Coke can" Clarence Thomas.  Cain and Thomas even look alike and act alike, with the same kind of arrogance -- and both have been accused of sexual harassment.  I believe everything Anita Hill said about Thomas -- and it's now proven that a monetary settlement was made to at least one woman re. Herman Cain's sexual harassment of her.  These two men aren't fit for any public office -- but there sits Thomas on the Supreme Court, a liar and sexual harasser.  So don't count ol' Herman out yet.  Republicans have a way of sliding by in the way they treat women--their standards for regarding women as equals who should be treated with respect is nowhere near as high as the standards of the more progressive Democrats.  You have to know, too, that it is a rival Republican candidate who leaked this story to Politico, and not a liberal Democrat as the shouting conservative pundits are claiming.  The Democrats would love to have Herman Cain run against Obama; in a general election, Obama would cream him -- so the Dems are not about to throw a monkey wrench into the works.  I suspect the Romney or Perry teams of telling Politico, "Sic 'em!"(Probably Romney because Cain is breathing down his neck as they head toward Iowa.)
