Ann Coulter on what liberals do to black conservatives who get lippy

Ann Coulter has a great post on the "allegations" against Hermann Cain. Summary:
These women [Cain's accusers] are like triple-A ball players with the stats being: number of bankruptcies, smallest bank account, number of liens, most false claims, number of children out of wedlock, degrees of separation from David Axelrod, total trips to human resources and so on.

That wouldn't be dispositive -- except for the fact that their only evidence is their word.

But this is how liberals dirty you up when they've got nothing: They launch a series of false accusations, knowing that Americans with busy lives won't follow each story to the end and notice that they were all blind alleys.

The liberal media is an old story, but it's still a big story when it comes to creating the impression of scandal out of thin air.

Most people say, "Where there's smoke, there's fire." I say, "Where there's smoke around a conservative, there are journalists furiously rubbing two sticks together."
Coulter compares the patina-thin substance of the allegations against Cain to the very well substantiated allegations against Bill Clinton and John Edwards-- to which the media gave a collective yawn for a very long time.

Filthy politics. We should be talking about Cain's ideas, not his private life, whatever it is.

If you're a black conservative, watch your back.


  1. Michael,

    Politics is a dirty business. Are you surprised that the media makes much out of possible sexual misdemeanors that by their nature are impossible to prove or refute? John Kerry's campaign in 2004 was largely sunk by a tawdry 'Swift Boats Veterans for Truth' campaign, which I suspect was orchestrated by the Republicans.

    I've previously said that I don't think that Cain's possible sexual misdemeanors disqualify him for POTUS. But I do think that his ignorance of foreign affairs does, such his ignorance that China has been a nuclear weapons power since the '60s, and that they are not currently trying to be one.

    A lot of the media attention on politicians is grossly unfair. In Australia, if a politician changes his or her mind about a policy, the media gives no credit for reconsidering the merits of the policy, instead gets lambasted for 'flip flopping'.

  2. Mr Cain is perhaps a little TOO 'black' for 'liberals', Mike.
    At least that is what my black friends seem to think. There point is this: An inexperienced man who has a white mother and was groomed for political career by white leftists is okay. More than okay, he is deemd the 'first Black President' despite being half white.
    But a guy who's BOTH parents are black and is self made, who hails from the south and was raised during the civil rights movement is just TOO MUCH. He knows TOO much history first hand, and we all know how the left likes to rewrite history.
    As one astute mate, born in Michigan, pointed out the left was the force behind secessionist and the anti-abolitionist forces of the 19th century.
    He implicated the Democratic party consistently in these talks, ans claims that is a major deciding factor for taking up citizenship in my country: He felt there was no real representation for his culture in EITHER of the main parties. One day after a holiday on the bay, he packed up and moved his folks up here. He joined the forces for 6 full years and eventually the RCMP. He is currently studying for his second degree since his arrival just about 14 years back. He still lives near the bay, and we have a drink quite frequently.
    The same guy LOVES Cain, but has predicted from the beginning he would be 'forced to withdraw'. He was only wrong about the nature of the scandal. He had predicted a 'marijuana' or similar scandal.
    Guess he was about 70% correct.

    I tend to agree on the foreign policy issues. The only guy in the WHOLE race that seems to have a grasp in Newt Gingrich, and he is just not sexy enough for today's ADHD voters. Maybe if he started wearing leather jackets, feeling up interns, and using F in his sentences the media might give him some air time?

    Always the victims, eh? POOR left. POOR, POOR liberals. I have to stop, I am crying so hard for them.... They are SO mistreated by the media they own. They should fire everyone (again) and start to report the official truth.
    And these POOR girls who claim to have had sex with a married man - for favours. How could he do that to them? Turn them into prostitutes without them even realizing...well, until the money ran out and they saw $$$!!?? Poor gals. I mean even if they are lying through their TEETH, of which there is every indication, they are the REAL victims there.
    Give me an F'n break.

    "What a bunch of hypocrites."
    The pot calling the kettle Black, and then sending it to the back of the bus.

  3. **sorry typos - damn teeny, tiny, tablet today.

  4. The single Antony Weiner (D) consensually shares racy pictures - Gone.

    Eliot Spitzer (D) hires a prostitute - Gone.

    John Edwards (D) cheats on his sick wife - Gone.

    Larry Craig (R) solicits homo sex in an airport rest room and gets arrested for it - Gets a standing ovation from his Republican colleges and serves out his term.

    Mark Sanford (R) goes AWOL to be with his Argentine mistress - Serves out his term.

    Newt Gingrich (R) cheats on his sick wife - Becomes Republican frontrunner for President.

    So yeah, Republicans are hypocrites.


  5. Ann Coulter and Michael Egnor are just a couple of racists, exploiting the "black" angle when the fact is that the media loves ANY conservative (of any color) who craps on the family values the Republican Party supposedly lives by.

    It's simply more funny when conservatives get caught with their hands in the wrong pants, because they're the ones judging how the rest of us live. Michael spends time nearly every day standing on his pedestal of objective morality and passing judgement on others, like the good conservative he is.

    So yeah, when a man like Cain has a long term affair (supported so far by her testimony and by financial and telephone records), demonstrating the "patina thin" depth of his conservative moral integrity, it's INTERESTING. But it's no more interesting than when Sanford, Craig, Foley or Haggard do it. If Michael wil remember, they got a LOT of press as well.

    It's just simply racist of Michael to only notice when it's a black man invoved.

    While Ann Coulter is beyond shame, I don't think you are yet. Shame on you, Michael.

  6. RickK:

    Cain has important things to say about our country. We may agree or disagree, but his political views should be the topic.

    Compare the media's treatment of him and its treatment of John Edwards for several years when they knew he was cheating on his wife with cancer. They remained silent, and only acknowledged the story when the Enquirer broke it.

    On Cain, the MSM is the Enquirer.

    But Bill Clinton-- serial sex offender and credibly accused rapist-- will continue to be welcome in liberal covens. He's no a black conservative, so he gets the benefit of all doubt.

  7. Dr. Egnor,

    At first, I dismissed Cain due to his lack of executive, legislative, or judicial experience. But I saw that he has degrees in mathematics and computer science, which favorably impressed me as a statistician, and was further impressed by his charisma. That did not last long, however, as Cain showed himself to be a buffoon who is completely unfit to serve as President, quite apart from the allegations that dog him. Now, I can't imagine supporting him for anything other than Pizza Czar.

  8. Yes Michael - I just explained why the media is interested in conservatives who screw around. It is conservatives who write long blog entries about the rampant promiscuity of modern culture. It is conservatives to moralize about how liberals have eroded family values. So when conservatives solicit homosexual sex in a bathroom, or have 13-year affairs that they end just before running for president, or run away to island retreats with their girlfriends leaving jobs and family behind, it is more interesting and more humorous than when liberals do it.

    I explained that earlier, so I don't really know why you responded the way you did.

    And once again, you played the black card as if black conservatives get more negative attention than conservatives in general. But they don't. You're just being racist.

    But a conservative being racist isn't that interesting, so I think we've settled this issue and can move on.

  9. "It's simply more funny when conservatives get caught with their hands in the wrong pants, because they're the ones judging how the rest of us live. Michael spends time nearly every day standing on his pedestal of objective morality and passing judgement on others, like the good conservative he is."

    Standing ovation, Rick.
    They DO love to judge others, don't they? Even though their book tells them otherwise:
    Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment that you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get.

    Confucius: The gentleman calls attention to the good points in others; he does not call attention to their defects. The small man does just the reverse of this.
