This is the signal we've all been waiting for:
Cain says God persuaded him to run for president

ATLANTA (AP) — Republican Herman Cain said God convinced him to enter the race for president, comparing himself to Moses: "'You've got the wrong man, Lord. Are you sure?'"

The Georgia business executive played up his faith Saturday after battling sexual harassment allegations for two weeks, trying to shift the conversation to religion, an issue vital to conservative Republicans, especially in the South.

In a speech Saturday to a national meeting of young Republicans, Cain said the Lord persuaded him after much prayer.

"That's when I prayed and prayed and prayed. I'm a man of faith — I had to do a lot of praying for this one, more praying than I've ever done before in my life," Cain said. "And when I finally realized that it was God saying that this is what I needed to do, I was like Moses. 'You've got the wrong man, Lord. Are you sure?'"

Once he made the decision, Cain said, he did not look back.

Four women have now accused Cain of sexually harassing them when he ... [etc]
Odd that Cain only waited until today to tell us this explosive news.


Megalomaniac. God told me to run. I'm the black Moses. He told me to touch those women, too. Laying on of hands. Sharon Bialek had vaginitis. I was trying to heal her when I went under her skirt.

Lots of people believe God talks to them. Some are in prison for killing their children. God told them to do it.

"...explosive news"

The analogy to farting is complete in every way.

It's hilarious to watch liberals try and figure out how to smear Herman Cain.

Consider Herman Cain's outrageous behavior when a he allegedly made an advance on a woman and was rebuffed:

"He further insisted and acted angry, becoming verbally sharp and loud. "I went into much deeper shock as I realised it appeared he was demanding sexual favours or sexual behaviours." The woman said [he] grabbed her hand and shoved it toward his groin. She alleged he later tried to have sexual intercourse with her and began caressing her before she squirmed out of his grasp.

Oh wait. Facepalm. My mistake. That was Al Gore's accuser, not Herman Cain's accuser. What did Herman Cain's accuser claim he did when she rebuffed his sexual advance?

"I asked him to stop and he did. I asked him to take me back to my hotel which he did, right away."

Maybe Al Gore could take a lesson from Herman Cain on how a real man behaves when he is sexually rebuffed.

Black Moses. Vaginitis. You are so classy! Keep on doing what you do best, DPT, 'cause you guys are WINNING!

Take a look at the passengers of the Krazy Klown Kar of GOP presidential candidates, and ask yourself why we're going to win, jms.

You have no one who can beat Obama, and it scares you to death.

When his Rush Limbaugh-approved talking points fail him, jms, like a good little right-wing soldier boy, changes the subject! It's all about AL GORE! A man who, as far as I know, isn't running for president in 2012.

jms, it's not the allegations of harassment that bother me. It's the man's fundamental, abject, undeniable stupidity. Watch his brain freeze for more than an entire minute during the meeting with editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The man is a moron. I wouldn't eat one of his shitty pizzas, and I damn sure don't want that empty head anywhere near the reins of power.

I'm not changing the subject. The subject is still about these "sexual harassment" claims, which both Quiddity and DPT made reference to.

I bring up Al Gore because liberals seem to think he's a pretty decent guy despite allegations that he went all "Pepe Le Pew" on a massage therapist, so why doesn't Herman Cain get any consideration when even by the account of his accuser, he respected that "no means no." Really all that's left of the story is a comical story of wildly miscommunicated intentions. (She thinks she's on a job interview, he thinks he's cheating). In Bialek's story, Cain makes his move, they both realize the mistake, and he immediately does exactly the right thing. If the story is true, the man owes an explanation to his wife, but other than a simple case of attempted marital fidelity that went badly yet ended honorably, where is the scandal? She verbalized, he respected. What more should he have done?

Or is he just "fair game" because he's a Republican?

"marital fidelity" --> "marital infidelity"

guy despite allegations that he went all "Pepe Le Pew" on a massage therapist,

Despite the fact that these allegations were checked out by the police and found that there wasn't enough evidence to base a criminal case investigation.

Thanks for another failed attempt at equivalency, JMS.

Despite the fact that these allegations were checked out by the police and found that there wasn't enough evidence to base a criminal case investigation.

... which differs from the Cain allegations how? Is there a criminal case investigation into the Cain allegations? Is one expected?

Thanks for another failed attempt at equivalency, JMS

I never claimed equivalency. We have two similar accusations -- that a man made sexual overtures to a woman. In one case the man is accused of refusing to take no for an answer. In the other case the man is accused of immediately taking no for an answer. There is no equivalence.

I think that the notion that I'm somehow scared to death that the Republicans can't beat Barack Obama is the most bizarre thing I've ever read here. It's like some sort of epic, massive projection. Just for fun, I listened to the local college progressive radio station today. Long interview with a Code Pink activist, but the interviewer was nodding in agreement. Even the progressives are pulling away from Obama.

I know where you are now. Conservatives went through the same thing in 2006. Being swept in the elections was inconceivable. Forget the polls. Somehow it can't happen because it just can't happen. Well guess what, that word -- it does not mean what you think it means. It can happen. I predict that it's about to happen to the Democrats this time. Barack Obama and his Democratic Congress was a huge progressive bubble that is in the process of popping. Does that address your speculation that I'm scared to death?

which differs from the Cain allegations how?

Um, 2 settlements which were not made on the basis of "allegations", companies don't make 5-figure settlements because of "allegations" and there are witnesses in the case of Cain as well:

Instead of going into the offices, he suddenly reached over and he put his hand on my leg under my skirt and reached for my genitals. He also grabbed my head and brought it toward his crotch. I was very, very surprised and very shocked. I said, what are you doing? You know I have a boyfriend. This isn’t what I came here for. Mr. Cain said, you want a job, right?

and then there's this eyewitness account by an Obamabot:

Michael Falcone

DES MOINES, Iowa — A conservative Iowa radio host, who on Wednesday became the latest person to accuse Herman Cain of acting inappropriately toward women, declined to offer specifics about the presidential candidate’s behavior but suggested that Cain was “compromised in his private life.”

Steve Deace, who hosts a syndicated two-hour radio program in Iowa, said that two of his female staff members were subjected to “inappropriate and awkward” comments by Cain. But he refused to identify them or elaborate on the seriousness of the allegations.

After his show on Wednesday night, Deace held an impromptu press conference outside his Des Moines studio while his two female staff members rushed out of the building, escorted by two men who attempted to keep reporters away.

One of the women was identified to ABC News by an independent source as a victim of the behavior Deace mentioned. Both of the women repeatedly refused to comment on anything related to the controversy.

Deace, an influential conservative figure in the state, declined to say whether he had the women’s consent before going public with the allegations, but added, “As a staff we are very tight and we are very close and we share everything with one another.”

Oh, and Obamas' chances?

PRINCETON, NJ -- President Obama now essentially ties, 43% to 42%, a "generic" Republican candidate when U.S. registered voters are asked whom they are more likely to vote for in the presidential election next year. This marks a change from October and September, when the Republican candidate was ahead, and underscores the potential for a close presidential race in the year ahead.

We'll be sure to bookmark your last comment here, jms, you're in the same category as this dedicated observer from Sadly, No!

It is not going to happen, liberals. Your echo chamber is reverberating now with your shouts of victory before you’ve won a single state. I almost feel badly for you, because when McCain wins, your astonishment will be overwhelming. I say “almost” because your ideology is nasty, anti-free speech, and absolutist, and every decent person will sigh in relief when it goes down to defeat once more.

Here is how it will go down next week. First, the results from Virginia and North Carolina will come in, and they’ll be declared for McCain. You’ll be disappointed, but “no big deal, change can’t come overnight” will be your comment. Florida will go red, and a little nervousness will creep in. The usual suspects will fall into the usual categories. As the night drags on, Ohio, Colorado, and (much to your horror) Pennsylvania will be too close to call.

My advice at this point to you will be to go to bed. You will wake up to a McCain presidency and the Great Liberal Freakout will be on.

Bookmark this, liberals, as this is exactly how it is going to go down. You will be wonder how the hell I was able to call this.
