The Entertainment Value of Politics and Squirmin Herman

Watching Cain self destruct is really hilarious. Now don't get me wrong, if he was some low level gov't servant who got accused of some silly little inappropriate remark ended up losing his pension and job I'd be very sympathetic, but this is some billionaire right wing religious fundamentalist who thinks he ought to be put in a position to legislate his brand of twisted religious morality on the rest of us. Which is: Go ahead and sin, but deny everything and it's ok to say "I don't remember." Sorry Hermy, that only worked for Ronald Raygun.

So like I said, it's downright enjoyable watching this holier-than-thou prick who thinks he is so morally superior succumb to the temptations of the flesh and end up being politically destroyed because of it.

Now, if I were running for office and a bunch of the women I've sexually harassed in my lifetime came forward, I'd send them all greeting cards, tell the world whatever I could remember about the situation (I was usually never one to harass those who didn't harass me first) and then get on with the campaign. I suspect the overwhelming majority of voters would shrug their shoulders and come to the realization of "yes, he IS human" and "well, he has always admitted he's an asshole."

Hilariously, Squirmin Herman is denying everything. He's denying he knew these women and he's making absurd statements like: "I have never acted inappropriately toward anyone." What a total asshat. Somebody needs to tell this bozo the clown that his act has ended and escort him off the stage.

But seriously, isn't political buffoonery fun to watch?
