Buckdance!

For readers not familiar with the terminology - a buckdance in black American vernacular  is a dance done by slaves for money or the approval of their white masters. The African American variation of which derived from the West Indies. The term has since been absorbed into the lexicon to mean a style of dancing, wherein a male dances by himself to show his skills. Clogging, a style of dance which derived from dance styles in Scotland and Ireland, which is performed to Bluegrass or Country style music has a variant where a man dances alone, typically using a sheet of plywood as a soundboard for his steps. It is an art style, and to be well done requires considerable skill.

Buckdancing in this post is the African American version – which is a racial pejorative synonymous with Uncle Tom.

Our first buckdancer up for our entertainment is Herman (“Where the white wimmin at”) Cain -

Obviously Herman is buckdancing for white conservative ears, as he now has a new Radio show taking over for Neal Boortz. The fact that Herman is a sick, women molesting trick, who cheated on his wife for 20 years or more isn’t a problem for evangelical white conservatives ready to forgive his sins as long as he continues to put a black face on their racism.

Our second buckdancer is Al Sharpton – making excuses for the Democrat Party’s failure in the recent recall election in Wisconsin -

Buck up Al – The Republicans didn’t win by cheating – they won by the Democrats failure to invest money in the election, AND, most importantly, their failure to make the case that Walker should be removed for unpopular politics – well short of any proven (to this point) criminal malfeasance. The donors apparently figured this out early – as did the DNC – and were noticeably absent in pouring money to counter the Republicans 7-1 spending advantage in the state.

This was not the stolen Florida Presidential Election of 2000 – they beat the Dems by 5 points – not 5 votes. Dems lost…Period. Guess what Al, black folks are so thin on the ground in Wisconsin, if you got 100% turnout… They (Walker) still won.

You can blame Citizen’s United – you can blame the Koch brothers…

But what they did was legal.

As to Walker – with his former top adviser turning State’s evidence – he will be indicted in the John Doe fiasco in the next 30 days and out of office by the Presidential elections. So the Dems win anyway. Its the good citizens of the state who lost.

“Al Green Hot Grits” Treatment for Philanderers… Cain Drops Out

Well…Looks like Cain talked to the little lady.

Once all the ugliness is done of having ended his campaign, he can come on home…

Sit in the Hot Tub with his favorite single malt, and let it all wash away…

While Gloria puts his favorite music on the stereo, and fixes him up with some of that home cookin’…

Starting with a big ol’ pot of hot grits!

Cain suspends campaign

Herman Cain said Saturday that he is suspending his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, choosing to end his campaign after weathering weeks of scrutiny over alleged sexual misconduct and accusations of an extramarital affair.

“As of today, with a lot of prayer and soul searching, I am suspending my presidential campaign,” Cain said at an appearance outside his campaign headquarters in Atlanta. “I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distraction, the continued hurt caused on me and my family. Not because we are not fighters.”

Cain said he’s launching a “plan B” of his public career, a new policy-oriented website called TheCainSolutions.com. He said he will endorse a Republican candidate for president “in the near future.” His announcement could lead to the effective end to his campaign, but technically leaves open the option of reviving his bid for the presidency.

“I am not going to be silenced, and I am not going away,” he defiantly told disappointed supporters.

Those hot grits hit your ass, Herman… You WILL be suspending your philandering ways!

Herman Cain – “Reassessing My Candidacy”

Looks like with the latest bombshell accusation of a 13 year affair with a woman in Atlanta…

Herman is toast.

Herman Cain ‘Reassessing’ 2012 Candidacy

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain told his staff Tuesday morning that he is reassessing his candidacy and will make the decision whether to remain in the race in “the next several days.”

Cain’s campaign has been plagued by sexual harassment allegations, and Monday a woman came forward alleging a 13-year affair with the candidate.

The Des Moines Register has more quotes from the Tuesday morning conference call. Cain reportedly told about 90 staff that the latest affair story might create “too much of a cloud” around his campaign.

“If a decision is made, different than we should plow ahead, you all will be the first to know,” he said. “Now with this latest one we have to do an assessment as to whether or not this is going to create too much of a cloud in some peoples’ minds as to whether or not they should support us going forward.”

He went on to deny the woman’s story as he did Monday when it broke.

Cain’s Iowa campaign chairman, Steve Grubbs, told the AP that the allegations have hurt Cain’s fundraising and taken a toll on his family. Still, Cain will continue his campaign for now and deliver a foreign policy speech in Michigan on Tuesday.

Top Republicans have called for Cain to drop out of the race:

“Cain is irrelevant, and the quicker he gets out of the race the better it will be,” said Ed Rollins, a longtime Republican strategist. “My fear is that he marches to the beat of his own drum and he may try to drag it on and deny and deny and deny. And my sense is that will likely be the pattern here. But there is no way he can be the nominee of our party. The quicker he gets out, the better for him and for us.”

Cain indicated Monday that he intended to remain in the race as long as he had the support of his wife, Gloria.

Tuesday the The Draft Herman Cain PAC, the Super PAC backing the candidate, abandoned him and changed its name to Beat Obama PAC.

Cain Discovers Becky-Becky-Becky Secret Service to Protect the Man

Shaping up to be a really bad week for molesters and rapists with the Penn State explosion which has brought down one of the most storied dynasties in College Sports, recent accusations of a Coach at Syracuse molesting children…

And serial sexual moleste… Errrrr… “harasser” Herman Cain.

Herman Cain’s campaign has asked for and received Secret Service Protection, reportedly due to a number of “death threats” received by the candidate – probably from his “base”. Hmmmmm… the piss-ants are revolting, but then again – so is their candidate. This wasn’t unpredictable.

Secret Service Protection

Secret Service involved in Cain’s security

Presidential candidate Herman Cain will receive protection from the United States Secret Service, the agency confirms to CNN.

Cain will be the first candidate in the race for the Republican presidential nomination in the 2012 election cycle to be placed under the protection of this federal law enforcement agency.

It is not yet clear why Cain is getting Secret Service protection.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan confirms on the record that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano authorized Cain’s protection after consultation with an advisory committee that consists of congressional leadership.

Donovan told CNN that the Cain campaign requested coverage, and the review found that it met the criteria.

Cain Campaign Spokesman J.D. Gordon confirmed that the Secret Service is providing additional security for the candidate.

“We are appreciative of the extra level of protection provided by these elite professionals,” Gordon said.

While early, it is not unprecedented for the Secret Service to take over the security of a presidential candidate. In May 2007, then-Sen. Barack Obama, who was running for the Democratic nomination, was placed under Secret Service protection. It was the earliest a candidate for president had received protection from this law enforcement agency. At the time, another Democratic candidate, then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, was already under Secret Service protection because she was a former first lady.

Usually, the Secret Service begins protecting “major” candidates designated by an advisory committee, which consists of the congressional leadership, four months before the general election, according to guidelines outlined on the agency’s website.

Herman Cain Perplexed When Asked About Libya: VIDEO

Herman Cain has a complete meltdown on foreign affairs questions asked about Libya. These questions are softballs to anyone who had even minimally read the public press about Libya.

Herman is a pretender.

Republican Meltdown – Cain Can’t Remember the Women He Raped… Perry Can’t Remember Which Federal Agencies He Wants to Kill

A day after Penn State did the right thing in firing long term Coach and College football Legend Joe Paterno for failing to aggressively come forward with what he knew about sexual molestation of young men by one of his assistants…

One needs to ask if the man who wants to be President of the US shouldn’t be held to the same level of accountability as a College Football Coach?

In the first Vid, Rick Perry melts down with a memory lapse at the debate. After George Bush, I think America has had quite enough of stupid men being President – and as such, Perry is going to get hammered for this a lot more than candidates in previous elections.

The 3rd Person Herman Cain (I always worry about a guy who constantly refers to himself in the third person), despite pictures and testimony to the contrary – doesn’t remember his accusers -

The supporting evidence pic showing the witness at the event in question?

 And then there is this -

And then there were the threats -

Well… At least Penn State (sadly – belatedly) did the right thing.

Cain Camp Lies About Accusers Fall Apart

The most disturbing thing about the defense put up by the Cain campaign is it is formulated around the “Bi67ch asked for it” rape defense.

It is falling apart rapidly, as the lies get blown up one after another…

The Accuser’s Son works for Politico lie -

Cain camp admits false claim about reporter

Herman Cain campaign manager Mark Block was not telling the truth when he claimed on Fox News that one of the women accusing Cain of sexual harassment is the mother of a reporter at the news outlet that broke the story, the Cain campaign acknowledged Wednesday.

After noting Tuesday night that “Karen Kraushaar had come out as one of the women” who accused Cain, Block told Sean Hannity that “we’ve come to find out that her son works at Politico,” the news site that first broke the harassment allegations.

Asked by Hannity if Block had “confirmed that,” Block (pictured at left) responded, “we confirmed that he does indeed work at Politico, and that’s his mother, yes.”

Block’s comment was inaccurate on multiple levels. First off, the reporter to whom he was referring, Josh Kraushaar, is a former Politico reporter; he has worked at National Journal since 2010. Second – and most importantly – he isn’t Karen Kraushaar’s son. And third, Block doesn’t appear to have tried very hard to verify his claim despite his statement that he had “confirmed” it.

On the National Journal website, Josh Kraushaar wrote Wednesday that he had responded to multiple inquiries Tuesday explaining that he is not related to Karen Kraushaar, and also put the information out in a Tweet. No one from the Cain campaign, he said, contacted him before Block went on the air.

“Despite that, Block proceeded to go on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show to proclaim that I was Karen Kraushaar’s son and to suggest I was one of the people who leaked the story,” wrote Josh Kraushaar…

The “I never met the B*&^h” lie -

Sharon Bialek: Herman Cain knows who I am

On MSNBC Wednesday, Bialek recounted an incident, which others have said they witnessed, in which she approached Cain at a Tea Party rally.

“I simply grasped his elbow and leaned in towards him to acknowledge he knew exactly who I was,” she said. “He acknowledged who I was.”

Bialek declined to reveal what she said to Cain at the event, but she said, “It was simply a few statements to jar his memory … That was only a month ago.”

At a press conference on Tuesday, Cain said he did not recall ever seeing Bialek before she came forward with her allegations on Monday. “I tried to remember if I recognized her, and I didn’t. I tried to remember if I remembered that name, and I didn’t,” he said.

Toure – No Post-Racial America

Toure has burst onto the scene, primarily as a guest on Martin Bashir’s MSNBC show recently with a distinctive slant on racial relations in America. First, Toure’s comments on Cain’s sexually molesting women – and then an opinion piece in the Times. Touré is the author ofWho’s Afraid of Post-Blackness?

No Such Place as ‘Post-Racial’ America

Dear America,

Please, I beg you, stop using the bankrupt and meaningless term “post-racial!” There’s no such thing as “post-racial.” There’s no place that fits the description “post-racial America.” There’s no “post-racial era.” It’s a term for a concept that does not exist. There’s no there there.

We are not a nation devoid of racial discrimination nor are we a nation where race does not matter. Race and racism are still critical factors in determining what happens and who gets ahead in America. The election of Barack Obama ushered in this silly term and now that he’s begun running for re-election, I’m here to brusquely escort it out of the party called American English because it’s a con man of a term, selling you a concept that doesn’t exist.

“Post-racial” is a mythical idea that should be as painful to the mind’s ear as fingernails on the chalkboard are to the outer ear. It’s an intellectual Loch Ness monster. It is indeed a monster because it’s dangerous. What people seem to mean by “post-racial” is: nowadays race no longer matters and anyone can accomplish anything because racism is behind us. All of that is false. But widespread use of the term lends credence to the idea that all of that is true—I mean, why would we have a term for an idea that’s not real? In that way the lie becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy and thus feeds the notion that it’s O.K. to be somnambulant about race or even aggressively dismissive of it.

If, as “post-racial” suggests, race no longer matters, then we no longer need to think about race or take the discussion of it seriously. In this way the concept becomes a shield against uncomfortable but necessary discussions allowing people to say or think, “Why are they complaining about racism? We’re post-racial.”

This barrier to conversation is dangerous in a nation where race and racism still matter very much. A place where black unemployment is far higher than white unemployment, where profiling and institutional racism and white privilege and myriad other forms of racism still shape so much of life in America. If we don’t need to discuss race then it’s allowed to fester and grow unchecked like an untreated malignant tumor. Race is an issue every American must care about. It’s not a black issue, it’s everyone’s issue. It’s relevant and important for whites because we all live here together and because the issue hurts everyone. If your neighbor’s house is on fire, or gets foreclosed, you have a problem. If your neighbor’s soul is on fire you have a major problem…. (Go Here for the rest of the article)

Martin Bashir – Cain’s a Dirty Old Man

Cold…

But true.

Time to do something smart for a change, Herman – and fall on your political sword…Everyone has had enough of the Minstrel Show.

“Dead Man Walking”… Indeed.

Cain Speaks Out to Deny Charges; 2nd Voice Heard

Days after declaring he was moving on from the rapidly developing controversy, Mr. Cain waded back in with an emphatic plea for decency from his high-profile lawyer followed by a defense of his personal integrity and a condemnation of the news media. He was emphatic in saying that men were victims of sexual harassment, too.

His comments came as the latest woman to go public with the accusations — Karen Kraushaar, one of two who settled sexual harassment claims while they worked at the National Restaurant Association while it was led by Mr. Cain — set in motion plans to appear with other women who have accused Mr. Cain of inappropriate behavior.

Ms. Kraushaar, 55, who now works as a spokeswoman for one of the three inspectors general at the Treasury Department, told The New York Times: “When you are being sexually harassed in the workplace, you are extremely vulnerable. You do whatever you can to quickly get yourself into a job someplace safe, and that is what I thought I had achieved when I left.”

Herman Cain – Would Accuser #5 Please Step Forward…

One of the reasons Herman Cain isn’t presidential material has been shown graphically in his mishandling of the entire secual harassment scandal. Somehow, Cornbread thinks he’s going to prove all these women liars – despite their having legal papers in hand.

Herman – Your dumb, ignorant, corporate-rapist ass is toast! Thank your fellow Republican candidates for sticking the knife in your back – but it is all your fault for being too arrogant, and stupid to pull the knife out.

Fifth woman raises questions about Cain’s behavior

A former employee of the United States Agency for International Development says Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain asked her to help arrange a dinner date for him with a female audience member following a speech he delivered nine years ago.

Donna Donella, 40, of Arlington, said the USAID paid Cain to deliver a speech to businessmen and women in Egypt in 2002, during which an Egyptian businesswoman in her 30s asked Cain a question.

“And after the seminar was over,” Donella told The Washington Examiner, “Cain came over to me and a colleague and said, ‘Could you put me in touch with that lovely young lady who asked the question, so I can give her a more thorough answer over dinner?’”

Donella, who no longer works for USAID, said they were suspicious of Cain’s motives and declined to set up the date. Cain responded, “Then you and I can have dinner.” That’s when two female colleagues intervened and suggested they all go to dinner together, Donella said.

Cain exhibited no inappropriate sexual behavior during the dinner, though he did order two $400 bottles of wine and stuck the women with the bill, she said.

The next time the women heard from Cain was Christmas, when he sent them his gospel CD.

Donella said she felt it was important to describe her encounter with Cain after hearing more serious allegations of sexual harassment brought by other women.

“I couldn’t swear that he had some untoward intentions, but we all thought his tone was suspect and we didn’t feel comfortable putting him in touch with that woman,” Donella recalled.

4th Accuser Details Cain Assault

This is waaaaaaay beyond the “Hey Sweetie” talk Cain has discussed…

Sharon Bialek accuses Cain of sexually inappropriate behavior

A fourth woman said Monday that presidential candidate Herman Cain engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior with her more than decade ago, though Cain was not her supervisor at the time.

Sharon Bialek, the first woman to publicly accuse Cain of inappropriate behavior, said Cain was “sexually inappropriate” with her in 1997, saying he put his hand under her skirt and pushed her head toward his crotch after a dinner together. She said he backed away after she asked him to stop.

“I want you to come clean, Mr. Cain,” she said in a New York City press conference at the Friars Club with her attorney, Gloria Allred at her side. Allred is known for her media savvy and for representing women who have had legal issues with the rich and powerful.

Three other women have reportedly accused Cain of inappropriate behavior while he was running the National Restaurant Association, but none has made public charges against him.

Allred last year represented Nicky Diaz Santillan, the housekeeper California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman fired because of her immigration status. She also represented one of the women who had an affair with golf legend Tiger Woods.

The latest accusations are likely to put more pressure on Cain to explain what happened with the women who worked for him at the restaurant group. Cain has denied any harassment occurred.

Within minutes of the press conference, Cain’s campaign issued a statement calling the allegations “false.”

Woman accuses Cain of reaching for genitals

Sharon Bialek told reporters Monday in New York that she met with Cain to ask about getting her old job back at the National Restaurant Association when the incident happened in Washington. At the time, Cain was chief of a restaurant trade group.

Bialek says that, when she asked Cain what he was doing, Cain said, “You want a job, right?”

 

Cain Victim #4 To Go Public Today

Back in the late 80′s there was a group called the Weather Girls (formerly 2 Tons of Fun), whose hit song was “It’s Raining Men”.

Right now for Herman Cain – It’s raining women he’s wronged. Number 4 has lawyered-up with some big guns.

New accuser to go public with charges against Herman Cain

A fourth woman accusing Herman Cain of sexual harassment during his time at the National Restaurant Assn. plans to go public with her allegations at a news conference Monday in New York.

The woman is represented by powerhouse Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred. Allred had a similar news conference earlier this year on behalf of one of the women who was enmeshed in the Twitter scandal that brought down New York Rep. Anthony Weiner.

Allred’s office said the woman “is not one of the three women who have previously been reported to have alleged sexual harassment by the Republican presidential candidate ” and that she will be “the first to give her name and to speak out about details of what she alleges occurred between her and Cain.”

Two woman reportedly complained about Cain’s conduct during his time as head of the restaurant association in Washington but have not revealed their identities. A third considered bringing a complaint but did not, the Associated Press reported last week.

The latest accuser surfaces at a time when Cain and his campaign are desperately — and perhaps now futilely — trying to change the subject. Cain grew testy with reporters after a campaign event with former House Speaker and fellow GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich over the weekend, refusing to answer questions about the allegations. His campaign manager has been sending out copies of the Society of Professional Journalists’ ethics code in a bid to deter reporters from bringing them up.

And now there are some signs that the scandal is taking a political toll on Cain. An Ipsos/Reuters poll conducted online at the end of last week showed Cain’s favorability rating among Republicans dropping 9 points, from 66% to 57%, and his rating among all voters dropping from 37% to 32%. Perhaps more worrisome for Cain was that a full 80% of respondents said they knew about the harassment allegations. One in three Republicans said the accusations made them view Cain less favorably.

Allred’s news conference is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. EST.
