Cain Launches “Women For Herman Cain” Website Trashing “Pathetic Husbandless Women”

Women For Cain

I wish I was making this up. I really do. But no. This is real (emphasis mine): 

“Dear Mrs. Cain Don’t pay attention to these pathetic husbandless women who are jealous of women like you in happy long-term marriages. These vindictive women can’t find a husband or keep one. They are like stalkers who try to latch on to any man who shows a bit of kindness or attention to them. When these unstable women come out of the woodwork to make accusations about Herman just say, ‘Honey, get a life, I believe my husband.’ We want you to be our First Lady Mrs. Cain!”

That, my friends, is a “testimonial” from “Barbara of Nipomo, California” on the brand-spanking-new Women For Herman Cain website that launched this morning. 

Just makes you want to go right out and vote for Herman Cain, doesn’t it, ladies? Keep reading »

Ginger White, an Atlanta businesswoman, came forward yesterday to claim she has had a 13-year-long affair with Herman Cain, who is vying to be the GOP’s presidential nominee. Herman Cain denied any  affair and called Ginger White “an acquaintance who I thought was a friend.” He has been married to thus-far loyal wife Gloria Cain for 43 years. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Herman Cain Signs Anti-Abortion Pledge

  • Herman Cain has finally signed an anti-abortion pledge confirming he is “100 percent pro-life” and that “all human beings have intrinsic dignity.” Trying not to make a joke about the various women who have accused him of violating their intrinsic dignity through sexual harassment. [My Fox Phoenix]
  • A pregnant woman who was demonstrating at an Occupy protest was kicked and peppersprayed by cops, which, she claims, doctors said caused her to miscarry. Horrible. [Feministing] Keep reading »

Conservative Political Action Conference Draws Major Leaders From The Right

On Monday night, Michele Bachmann visited Jimmy Fallon’s late night talk show and his house band, The Roots, played a little music like they always do. But then it became clear yesterday that the song was called “Lyin’ Ass Bitch,” a 1985 ditty from the band Fishbone. (The Roots’ drummer Questlove tweeted a teaser that afternoon — “aight late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title” — that tipped people off.) This morning, Bachmann appeared on Fox News to say NBC owes her an apology and “that had it been Michelle Obama and that song had been played, I have no doubt that NBC would have apologized.” Bachmann squarely named the song selection/title “sexism” (as did feminist bloggers).

And although I can’t believe I am saying this about Michele Bachmann or Fox News, I actually agree. Keep reading »

Rep. Michele Bachmann is the only female candidate gunning for the Republican nomination. So you know I’ve got something to say about her taking on what the New York Observer cheekily referred to as “the traditional woman’s role” at a GOP Thanksgiving Family Forum on Saturday night and pouring glasses of water for all her male opponents. While Rick Perry, Herman Cain, and the other male candidates sat at their roundtable, she walked from glass to glass, filling them with water.

Now, let’s put on our Women’s Studies Major Hat and ask ourselves, BUT WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!?! Keep reading »

The best moment of the 2012 campaign so far happened when Herman Cain assured American voters that for all the women who have claimed he sexually harassed them, there are thousands who have not. See? He might have been accused of sexually harassing some women, but come on, people, he hasn’t sexually harassed all women. Give him a break! [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Sarah Palin Thinks She Can Win The 2012 Election

Sarah Palin Newsweek cover

“I believe that I can win a national election. The people of America are desperate for positive change, and deserving of positive change, to get us off of this wrong track. I’m not so egotistical as to believe that it has to be me, or it can only be me, to turn things around, but I do believe that I can win. If it came down to the family just saying, ‘Please, Mom, don’t do this,’ then that would be the deal-killer for me, because your family’s gotta be in it with you … I think Bristol has made up her mind, and Bristol wants me to run for president. But we’re still thinking about it. I’m still thinking about it.”

Sarah Palin keeps the will-she-or-won’t-she rhetoric going in the latest issue of Newsweek while simultaneously making it pretty clear that, duh, she will. Shall we start taking bets on when she’ll making the official announcement of her entry into the race? [Newsweek] Keep reading »
