Herman Cain Just Doesn't Know When To Shut Up -or- How To Commit Political Suicide 101

First of all.... no one should take this as support for (or defense of) Nancy Pelosi. I have my own issues with the former Speaker of the House.

BUT..... if I were running for President of the United States... and I had recently been undergoing intense media and public scrutiny for the alleged sexual harassment of four women.... I might want to choose my words a little more carefully and avoid saying ANYTHING that sounded remotely misogynistic or sexist.

Apparently... that's one more area that Herman and I disagree upon.

At the very least, I'm put off by the notion of a Presidential candidate who resorts to rather juvenile, schoolyard sobriquets to describe a political opponent. But I also notice that Cain doesn't similarly refer to any of his male opponents by using derogatory or derisive nicknames.

If he had ever, even once, referred to Gingrich as, "Lardass McGee" or to Ron Paul as, "Grandpa Smurf" or called Rick Perry, "Perry the Fairy".... I might be more inclined to think he's merely an inappropriate and sophomoric douchebag in general..... and not the unrepentant, misogynistic, serial-groper he's alleged to be.

Whatever you believe about him... it's hard to see how Cain did himself any favors by lowering himself to playground name-calling and behavior unbecoming to a Presidential candidate.... let alone giving his detractors a full magazine of fresh ammunition, while at the same time doing everything he can to dodge their bullets.

Just my two pennies worth.
