Yes, Herman Cain, “Princess Nancy” Is A Sexist Way To Refer To Nancy Pelosi
With seemingly a new woman coming forward every day detailing sexual harassment by Herman Cain, you might think the GOP wannabe presidential candidate would try not to look like a jerk. But during last night’s GOP debate, Cain referred to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as “Princess Nancy” while grousing about Congress. The audience chuckled and clapped; the (all white) dudes flanking Cain on either side looked uncomfortable. “Princess” is a disrespectful way to refer to a powerful, take-no-prisoners woman without calling her a “bitch” and suggests she doesn’t do what she does in Congress because it’s her job but because, oh, she’s such a princess!
Herman Cain is a sexist pig. It’s time for him to drop out of the race already. [Washington Post]
