Herman Cain

The irony of Herman Cain’s sex scandal is that there may have been no sex at all. But in these politically correct times, the slightest innuendo, however innocently intended, can land you in trouble. Cain likes to boast that he’s the only nonpolitician in the GOP’s presidential nominating race, but as he’s learned this week, a bit of political strategizing may have prevented him from spinning an ever-evolving tale about sexual harassment claims by two women when he headed the National Restaurant Association from 1996-1999 that have landed him in political hot water.
