Stacy McCain and Ladd Ehlinger on Herman Cain

Stacy McCain and Ladd Ehlinger are both friends of mine, their views on Herman Cain are diametrically opposed.

Ladd is a blunt speaker and his not one to BS his readers, I thank his complaints about the campaign seriously. As both he and Stacy are much more shall we say “worldly” than me I’ll have to let them decide about Cain’s social life.

Stacy being the reporter notes the exculpatory evidence, myself I note the pattern, first “harassment” then “an affair” but the evidence on both batches are pretty light.

However if Mr. Cain is in fact doing as poorly as the media suggests why play another card?

I say it’s very simple, this is the internet age, where is the recording, where is the cell phone video?

As I’ve said before, if Cain is telling the truth, he can expect these attacks to continue.

If he is lying then he can expect a “blue dress” or the digital equivalent to come out, furthermore consider for a second, how stupid or how egotistical Herman Cain has to be if this accuser is telling the truth. If they had an affair for the length she is saying, even if Ladd Suggests he is only out to sell a book, wouldn’t this run be the height of Gary Hart stupidity?

However there is one more twist. It is no secret that Robert Stacy McCain is on the Cain train and has been for a long time, that being they case why am I reading this?

Accusations by hyper-litigious bankrupt divorceés? No biggie.

Leaving me off a key conference call? That could be serious trouble.

Why on earth would you leave a reporter who has been strong in his support and advocacy for you off such a call?

Granted he has a lot on his mind but even if you end up marrying someone else spare a kind word for the lady who gave you a date when nobody else was interested.

That’s not the Sicilian way.
