    Puh lease. For your first point, Dems want nothing more than for Cain to run. That is why they are being so silent about this. Cain running is an easy win for Obama.

    Your second point: there is a HUGE difference between unwanted sexual advances and consensual sex.

    So now we see how his 9-9-9 plan works in practice!

    Order wine, then don't even pay a dime!

    I like it, he should be a politician!

    Oh wait..

    This all reminds me of a tune I knew while a youth. Perhaps Herman listened a bit too intently to it when he was young?
    Only instead of spilling the $400 a bottle wine he drank it instead.

    I am convinced only by evidence. There is none as far as I can tell.

    If you know anything about sexual harrassment (being a woman would certainly help), actually winning a settlement from a company is a sure sign that something happened. Anita Hill did not receive a settlement for her alleged sexual harrassment that she says she suffered at the hands of Clarence Thomas. I think it still happened, but she apparently chose not to pursue it. But these women got money. Hmm...

    Does anyone else feel like they are being harassed by Cain's creepy smile at the end of his campaign videos? Just sayin'....

    Or with any other politician who has been blamed for sexual harassment? Doesn't look like it, seems the smear machine is always ready to go and no matter what happened the politician will come out of it just fine.

    I don't know about that, but it seems that one is acceptable to some and excused while the other is a terrible thing and inexcusable. I would like a little more consistency myself.
    But I guess this thread is actually about the crime of stiffing others on the check or the idea that stiffing someone on a check means that you are definitely a sexual predator or some other strange theory like that.

    LOL

    Gotta admit, I had similar thoughts ... very puzzling ...



    One conclusion would be the old communist adage: The end justifies the means.

    grasping the after wind, you *are* following the argument correctly. You don't seem to agree with it, which is fine. :)

    But yes, I interpret the stiffing incident as at least partial substantiation for what Donna Donella (formerly of USAID) described, because if it is true harrassment, there will be retaliation for saying no! We women already know that, so Ms. Haberman's including this in her story would have set off alarm bells for those of us "in the know," so to speak. It's authentic. It may or may not be true, but it convinced me because the details you would need to hear have been provided in abundance and in detail, and she didn't make her claims anonymously. She is willing to pay the price of making her claims in public, because she has the truth on her side.

    None of this has to do with his ethnicity or his political affiliation, believe it or not. This situation is evil. If someone had invited me to dinner, and then skipped out on me with an $800 tab, I would have paid, but I may or may not have been able to pay my rent or make my car payment. Words cannot tell any of you what an evil thing that was to do to a young woman living on her own, on a small salary.

    IMO, running up an $800 check and skipping out on it tells me that either Cain is vindictive (pay back for refusing dinner) or entitled (the rich are often very entitled when it comes to others paying their way). Either way, if the incident is true, it speaks very poorly of Cain's character.
