But your sex life is definitely his business. Ok, well, he’s a Republican so don’t pretend to be shocked that the evangelical Christian had a 13 year “relationship” with a woman other than his wife while married and that he thinks this is none of your business. Naturally.
Now gay sex, that is so his business. Remember Cain the Baptist preacher saying, “There’s a movement going on to basically take the teeth of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act. And that can cause an unraveling, so we do need some protection at the federal level because of that.” Yes indeedy do. We need to protect marriage from….the gays because men like Cain do it so much better.
Try to keep up.
Here’s part of the statement Cain’s attorney, Lin Wood, sent to the local Atlanta station running with the affair allegations tonight courtesy of NPR:
“…This appears to be an accusation of private, alleged consensual conduct between adults – a subject matter which is not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public. No individual, whether a private citizen, a candidate for public office or a public official, should be questioned about his or her private sexual life. The public’s right to know and the media’s right to report has boundaries and most certainly those boundaries end outside of one’s bedroom door.
“Mr. Cain has alerted his wife to this new accusation and discussed it with her. He has no obligation to discuss these types of accusations publicly with the media and he will not do so even if his principled position is viewed unfavorably by members of the media.”
No individual should be questioned about his or her private sexual life? REALLY? That’s super news! We await Cain’s flippety flop on the federal amendment to “protect” marriage from the sinners. Any minute now….
To what are they responding? Oh, just a woman named Ginger White who says she had a 13 year relationship with Cain.
Ginger White says she met Herman Cain in the late 90s in Louisville, Kentucky, when as president of the National Restaurant Association, he made a presentation. She was impressed. She says they shared drinks afterwards and he invited her back to his hotel room.
“’I’d like to see you again,’” White said Cain told her. “’You are beautiful to me, and I would love for us to continue this friendship.’”
She says in his hotel room, he pulled out a calendar and invited her to meet him in Palm Springs. She accepted, and she says the affair began.
“He made it very intriguing,” White told FOX 5. “It was fun. It was something that took me away from my humdrum life at the time. And it was exciting.”
Ok, well, I haven’t even told you the worst part yet. Cain signed a book to her in 2001 writing:
“Friends are forever! Everything else is a bonus.”
Mediocrity alert: “This beautiful friendship” becomes a bonus. Honestly, what was Ginger thinking?
So, yeah, there you go. Herman Cain’s sex life is none of your business! Everything else is a bonus:-) Stay sweet!
Family values: They’re not for Republicans anymore.
