‘Colbert Report’: Cain ’Splains

Herman Cain might reframe the sexual harassment problem haunting him from his past as not so much a witch hunt as proof that he’s a real contender for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. After all, as Stephen Colbert observes in this “Colbert Report” clip from Tuesday’s show, nobody’s even bothering to dig into Jon Huntsman’s present.

Plus, Cain may be the accused party, but he’s also the party that gets to say what he wants to the media, and that’s just what he did on Monday’s episode of Greta Van Susteren’s Fox News show. Luckily, Colbert is here to help us make sense of it all.  —KA

Its April 2012 and a neophyte friend is interviewed on the local ABC tv outlet
about leading candidate Herman Cain….yeah I think he is the best of the bunch
he began his campaign by claiming he would have “homosexuals” in his
administration rather Muslims. And then says something that sounded like a
pizza commercial price of 9-9-9 is good for all Americans. And the next thing
one reads about him is that he paid off a couple of women who were going to
take him to court for sexual harrassment except that the only thing he can
remember is telling one of them that she was about the same height/size as his
wife. Yeah I think he’ll be great President .
