Herman Cain "made it very intriguing," says Ginger White.

"It was fun. It was something that took me away from my humdrum life at the time. And it was exciting."

I don't know if it happened or not... or what "it" even is, but... that description... it's the old adultery story, a routine story: It was exciting because it took me away from the routine. But, ironically, Ginger, that is the routine story of adultery.

We can only hope that this fable is better constructed than the others.

As Professor Jacobson has noted, "After hundreds of articles at Politico, what do we know about the specific accusations against Herman Cain which gave rise to Politico’s original reporting: Nothing.

After hundreds of articles at Politico, what do we know about the specific evidence against Herman Cain which gave rise to Politico’s original reporting: Nothing."

The irony, of course, is that Slobbering Barney had a male bordello run out of his house which was documented, but that's OK.

No proof, no evidence and Herman is guilty until proven innocent.

She says it went on for 13 years.

He says it did not happen.

He also (in response to a question, I think) said that she would have no emails, letters, gifts or other stuff that would verify her story.

This one should not be hard to verify, it it happened.

If this and the other stuff are made up, Herman Cain is officially the victim of a virtual lynching, in my mind.

David said...

Herman Cain is an able black, Henry, so get going.

I find it hard to believe that this could have gone on for 13 years and only come out now.

Cain has to have known it would come out, if it were true and that it would sink him when it did.

So I am wondering if it happened.

OTOH, perhaps Cain was really never planning to be a serious candidate. Perhaps he was only running to sell his books and raise his speaker's fees. If he had never been taken seriously, if he had gotten out fairly early, he might have gotten away with it.

She did show the Atlanta paper some cell phone bills with Cain's number showing outgoing and incoming calls and texts.

Hard to deny that he was in contact with her.

It doesn't say how many were outgoing and how many were incoming. She does have a record as a stalker, even had a restraining order at one point. So is it 100 calls from her stalking Cain and one back from him saying to leave him alone? Are they mostly from him to her? The paper doesn't say.

It is very very odd.

I am going to give him the benefit of the doubt for the time being but it is a bit difficult.

One more reason to support Ron Paul. He has no women problems. As someone said in another blog, given his charm, dynacism and charisma, what woman would possibly have an affair with him?

Did Cain not know he would be attacked like this?? He was a media professional! I feel sorry for his family. I didn't care about Bubba and his bimbos, and I don't care about Cain's either.

Of course, Barney Frank is a Democrat, so he is exempt from scrutiny.

One more reason to support Ron Paul.

Possibly the greatest non sequitur of all time.

Henry said...

I'm voting for Ron Paul only if he had a torrid affair with a woman named Ginger.

Cain is the conservative, black Bill Clinton. Elect this son of a bitch!! Bill was a helluva lot better than what we have now.

Titus said...

At least she is black....I think.

Hello, Bill Clinton?

What's the big deal, it's not like he is going to actually be the president.

I say go Herman. Do want you need to do. Man has needs.

The bitch kept the text messages and phone records. He was just helping her financially, that's what friends do.


Maguro said...

I'm guessing that free Godfather's pizza was involved. Or at least some very appealing coupon offers.

Charlie said...

Did anyone else see Lawrence O'Donnell tonight? I think he must be mentally ill. Seriously.

F said...

Charlie: Can you explain why you watch someone who is mentally ill? Seriously

No, he wasn't. He let a lot of things be swept under the carper when they could have been fixed and he is the one who gave us subprime mortgages.

Add to that the fact that, in the first two and last two years of his Administration, Willie governed like the hard-core Lefty he has always been and you have plenty of reason not to want the former Serial Rapist In Chief to ever go near the White House again.

Charlie said...

F: That's an excellent point.

Charlie said...

No, I can't.

MayBee said...

If you do a Google image search on Ginger White, you get a lot of orange and white tabby cats.

As black as Obama.

The "black on blonde" meme didn't work, so they're going "Porgy and Bess".

… it's the old adultery story, a routine story: It was exciting because it took me away from the routine. But, ironically, Ginger, that is the routine story of adultery.

And it's precisely a routine story that many seek in adultery. I'm reminded of one of my favorite moments in My Dinner with Andre, Andre's words at the end of the dinner. The observation he makes seems counterintuitive, paradoxical-- I hadn't thought of affairs in this way before-- but it struck me as true and profound, and I've reflected on it often since.

The passage can be found at the end of this clip.

From the transcript found here:

You see, that's why I think that people have affairs. Well, I mean, you know, in the theater, if you get good reviews, you feel for a moment that you've got your hands on something. You know what I mean? I mean it's a good feeling. But then that feeling goes quite quickly. And once again you don't know quite what you should do next. What'll happen? Well, have an affair and up to a certain point you can really feel that you're on firm ground. You know, there's a sexual conquest to be made, there are different questions: does she enjoy the ears being nibbled, how intensely can you talk about Schopenhauer in some elegant French restaurant. Whatever nonsense it is. It's all, I think, to give you the semblance that there's firm earth.

Well, have a real relationship with a person that goes on for years, that's completely unpredictable. Then you've cut off all your ties to the land and you're sailing into the unknown, into uncharted seas. I mean, you know, people hold on to these images: father, mother, husband, wife, again for the same reason: 'cause they seem to provide some firm ground. But there's no wife there. What does that mean, a wife? A husband? A son? A baby holds your hands and then suddenly there's this huge man lifting you off the ground, and then he's gone. Where's that son?

Ralph L said...

how intensely can you talk about Schopenhauer
Or Reinhold Niebuhr.

Lucien said...

First a guy named Mullet shows up in the Amish hair-cutting story an now . . . Ginger White?

yashu said...

Or Reinhold Niebuhr.

Not sure if you're alluding to what I'm thinking of, but if perchance you are, heh. I'm sure David Brooks thoroughly enjoyed Obama's ear-nibbling, too.

Ralph L said...

Yes, because that's all I know about R N.

Hagar said...

We may have another Anita Hill here.

Note that after Sharon Bielak "came forward" and that splashy TV session with Gloria Allred, we have still not seen any actual proof of anything beyond "he said/she said" about that thing, and there is still nothing to chew on from the lawyer representing - if he still does - the three who sued the Reataurant Association back when.

Carol_Herman said...

Man, what's strange is that people who picked Herman Cain weren't basing it on any abilities, but the fact that he was supposed to be monogamous in his marriage.


If it didn't surprise you that Jesse Jackson had a "love child." And, screwed around on his wife. Why do you think if you add, say, "but a republican wouldn't." You're just being unrealistic, again.

There's just so much you can do with litmus paper.

Carol_Herman said...


No gifts! Hillary did not know! (Bill Clinton's security detail, however, probably knew.)

So, if Jennifer Flowers could do it, why not Ginger White?

WHAT? She didn't record any phone calls? Seems to me she got phone calls. But didn't think Herman Cain was gonna run for the presidency. Maybe, if he became governor, first? Then, she'd have recorded his phone calls.

Not that anyone is saying Herman Cain was into "dirty talk."

His first "gift" was a book. He was smart enough to address his gift to "Miss Ginger." Adding, after this, their first meeting, that she "had what it took to be successful."

Some women? You don't even have to buy them a cup of coffee ... to get them into bed.

On the other hand, she was always meeting him in ritzy hotels, far from home. For both of them.

Who paid her air fare? Did it become a date only in the hotel room? But as soon as she grabbed a cab, her expenses were on her own?

Okay. You want to believe Herman Cain kept his marriage vows.

Well, he's still married. So he is! What more do you want?

Cheryl said...

Thirteen years and it was still taking her away from "humdrum?" Really?

Seems like after 13 years the affair itself would be humdrum and routine. Something seems off. Six months, a year or two, sure. But thirteen years?
