Un-freaking-believable. Ken Shepherd at NewsBusters has this report about a developing CNN story:
Seeking to breathe new life into the political damage of unproven sexual harassment charges against him, CNN's Lisa Sylvester presented viewers with a "developing story" in the 4 p.m. hour of The Situation Room entitled "Is Cain the Anti-Women Candidate?"
Sylvester glommed onto "recent controversial comments" Cain has made, such as referring to former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as "Princess Nancy," and saying that "tutti-frutti" is the ice cream flavor that would best describe Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).
I can't believe this is considered news or anything worth discussing period, let alone making a story around. Saying "Princess Nancy" is anti-woman??? This is the same brain-dead mentality that incited Herman Cain's supposed "victims" of crying "sexual harassment"! Calling Pelosi "Princess Nancy" is more than apt. I could think of much worse.
Where was Donna Brazile when Sarah Palin was called the worst names by the staunchest of Obama supporters? What about all the misogynous attacks on Michelle Bachmann? Crickets chirping. Just like with all the racist attacks on Herman Cain (which is all this is)?
This talentless hack who must have gotten her journalism degree out of a Cracker Jack box continued:
"Some critics see him as the anti-women candidate," Sylvester insisted of Cain, turning to "CNN contributor Donna Brazile" who "says he has a credibility problem with women." Sylvester failed to note that Brazile is a liberal Democratic strategist who contributed to President Obama's campaign this September.
Donna Brazile??? Of course she contributed to the Obama campaign! She's not just a Democrat strategist, she's a bitter partisan and wholly biased liberal hack. She's the woman who ran Al Gore's 2000 presidential campaign, infamously saying that they weren't going to "let the white boys win."
And she's a CNN contributor? Jeez, what a surprise. Curiously, to this day CNN has not done a story about whether Donna Brazile's then-candidate Al Gore was the "Anti-White" candidate. (I know what you're thinking: Wait, Al Gore is white! Silly reader, you're trying to look for logic in a statement made by a liberal!)
They are just throwing everything they can at Herman Cain until he goes down.
