Cain's zipper problem and the media's viciousness
I do not, truthfully, know if Herman Cain has a zipper problem. I do know that if he does, it is dwarfed by Bill Clinton's zipper problem. Recall that Betsy Wright, the Clinton thug from Alpine, coined, "bimbo eruptions," (a term later blamed on Republicans; another liberal lie) and John Podesta, later White House Chief of Staff, was hired to, er, fix them. By which we mean bribe or threaten women who by all the evidence had a lot more misuse than any of Cain's accusers have so far come up with. Credible charges of rape are more serious than a rebuffed grope.
As the world knows, four women, at last count, have leveled charges of harassment, which sometimes has been defined down to being "uncomfortable," at him but the first two women remained anonymous and the charges were vague. Even reporting those was a bad day for the left-wing media. Anonymous charges are to be dismissed out of hand; recall the terror of anonymous charges in Leonardo's Florence. They truly did cause a reign of terror and it is one of the tenets of a liberal democracy that one gets to face one's accusers.
The charges that I've heard Sharon Bialek level against Cain are not that pretty. But let's look at them. Bialek said that Cain put his hand on her leg and tried to touch her private parts. She also claimed that he tried to pull her head toward his crotch. Both at the same time? But here's the telling bit: she also said that after she said stop, he did. And that he drove her to a destination and let her out. This is a far cry from Slick Willie raping at least one woman, which he most certainly did and the media tried to ignore that. Also do you remember Mary Jo Kopechne, murdered by the Lion of the Senate?
Back to the world where a Republican is guilty if he can be made to look guilty.
Cain is an alpha male. Look at what he's done. He's aggressive; anyone, male or female, to achieve his position must be aggressive. Otherwise he'd be out of a job when the Godfather's he was making pizzas for went out of business. Aggressive people make advances; I have in my life been not aggressive enough, when in retrospect the other party was wanting me to take the lead. Without some initiative, people would never get together. No deals at all: business or personal.
If we can take Ms. Bialek at her word, putting his hand on her thigh was not a good thing. But her tone of how traumatizing it was for her and how hard to live through just rings false. For her to use the same language that Iraqi veterans actually do not in general use for post-traumatic stress disorder. Really, Ms. Bialek? You are a fully grown woman, accomplished, intelligent, and I simply refuse to believe that it is traumatizing for a woman of your intelligence and accomplishments to have a hand laid on your leg by a man who then stopped when you asked him to.
We don't know what happened. We will never know. I do know that one other woman had a history of lodging complaints; we cannot know if something happened there either. But in any case, it is massive overkill to use the language of rape and violation and even PTSD for anything that Cain's been accused of yet.
Consider a Muslim woman who might have to live her life in a burqa. Her word is worth half a man's word. If she is raped, without several male witnesses, she can be gang raped to "punish" her for inciting her rapist. In Saudi Arabia there was a fire in a girls' school and the girls were trying to flee the flames, and were not dressed modestly enough. The morality police threw them back into the burning building to protect public morals where they died, but no public morality was corrupted. But they burned to death. A Muslim girl who decides her life is her own and who makes her own marriage can be killed by her brothers, lest she dishonor their family. I suppose that sororicide is more honorable to Muslims, or some of them, than according a woman full human rights.
In the grand scheme of things, a rebuffed grope, if that did happen, compared to the lives of hundreds of millions of Muslim women, is a year's worth of free dinners at the French Room compared to a seriously inedible Big Mac. If that is not redundant.
Oh, I forgot something crucial to my argument. Ms. Bialek's attorney is that ambulance-chasing left-wing hag Gloria Allred, which means of course that the odds are very good that she's lying. Based on form. Just sayin'.
