Wingnut Debate Prequel: Herman Cain Blames Sinister "DEMOCRAT MACHINE"

Herman Cain continued his two-fisted assault on Herman Cain's integrity, insisting that Herman Cain is a perfect A = A businessman politician who is being persecuted by the sinister, shadowy "DEMOCRAT MACHINE" whose omniscient EE-VIL powers include brainwashing Teabaggers into bowing to their commands: "The Democrat Machine in America has brought forth a troubled woman to make false accusations."

Wow. Herman, you got us. I never thought it could be possible. We set up such an elaborate screen of deception and disinformation. It’s astonishing how you, wingnuts and Teabaggers all, Limbaugh, Coulter, Fox and The Daily Caller have smoked out such a vast left-wing conspiracy geared up just to smear Herman Cain with charges of sexual harassment. “Our blacks are better than their blacks,” railed the Coultergeist indignantly. Rush Limbaugh, the leader of the Republican Party, scolded Republicans cowed by the "DEMOCRAT MACHINE" and its Beltway Media propaganda arm, POLITICO. (We should have known they were onto us when that wingnut DC chick showed up at Chris's book party trying to get someone to grope her.)

Whining that the sinister "DEMOCRAT MACHINE" was out to "wreck my character and plant doubt in the minds of voters," Herman Cain raged against the DEUS EX "DEMOCRAT" MACHINA in America: "I have said this before: There will probably be others: Not because I'm aware of any, but because the machine to keep a businessman out of the White House is going to be relentless." Meanwhile, the gallant frat house wingnuts from the Daily Caller rallied to Herman Cain's defense, 'reporting' that "Herman Cain said Tuesday he doesn’t even recognize, much less recall, Sharon Bialek, the woman who is accusing him of sexual harassment." Really? That's funny, because the Chicago Sun-Times ran an eyewitness account of the meeting last month between Sharon Bialek and Herman "I don’t remember this person by name" Cain that doesn't jive with Cain's memory loss:
The Cain Encounter ...

They hugged each other backstage in a full embrace like old friends.

She grabbed his arm and whispered in his left ear.

She kept talking as he bent to listen, and he kept saying “Uh, huh. Uh, huh.”


“I don’t know if what she was giving him was a sucker punch, but he didn’t put his arm down while she was talking to him,” said the Sneed source.

◆The “he”... is GOP presidential contender Herman Cain, who has been accused of sexual harassment by several women.

◆The “she”... is Chicagoan Sharon Bialek, who held a news conference Tuesday as the only woman to PUBLICLY accuse Cain of sexual harassment.

◆The Sneed source ... is WIND radio co-host Amy Jacobson, who tells Sneed she witnessed the Cain/Bialek encounter a month ago while backstage at the AM 560 WIND sponsored TeaCon meeting in Schaumburg Sept. 30-Oct. 1 at the Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center.

◆Quoth Jacobson: “I had turned on TV to find out who was Cain’s accuser, and I almost fell over when I saw it was Sharon Bialek accusing Cain of groping her genitals.”

“I was waiting for Herman Cain’s ‘Accuser No. 4’ to surface — and up pops Sharon!”

“I couldn’t believe it. I was shocked.”

“I recall Sharon was hell bent on going backstage at the TeaCon convention — where she cornered him,” said Jacobson.

“I was surprised to hear she claims she did not know Cain was going to be there. Cain was expected and was late.”

Bialek told the media on Monday: “I went up to him and asked him if he remembered me. I wanted to see if he would be man enough to own up to what he had done 14 years ago.”

◆The encounter: “It looked sort of flirtatious,” said Jacobson. “I mean they were hugging. But she could have been giving him the kiss of death for all I know. I had no idea what they were talking about, but she was inches from his ear.”

◆The introduction: “It all began when I took a convention break and joined my pals at the hotel bar. Sharon was drinking Mimosas with them. She said she was a Republican, a Tea Party member, had once dated [White Sox sports announcer’ Steve Stone] and had worked at WGN radio.”

◆The rendezvous: Sharon also said she was anxious to meet Cain again and had once gone to an afterparty with him and her boyfriend years ago. But she never mentioned he had sexually harassed her.”

◆The upshot: Bialek has since applied for employment in sales at WIND radio and is scheduled for a second interview Thursday.
Then, in a typical Daily Caller dish of misinformation, this breathless headline trumpeted "Second Cain accuser is Obama administration communications pro." No doubt, this is supposed to establish the sinister "DEMOCRAT MACHINE" connection: "The Daily (an i-Pad only news outlet which revealed this accuser's identity) reports that Karen Kraushaar, a communications director at the Treasury Department’s Office of Inspector General, was a National Restaurant Association spokesperson when, she alleges, Cain’s inappropriate behavior took place."

What the Daily Caller failed to report is that Ms. Kraushaar is a civil servant and registered Republican who, "went to work in communications for the Department of Justice, where she was the spokesperson for the agency during the Elian Gonzalez repatriation controversy. She then moved to the IRS, where she also worked in communications, and is now communications director for the Treasury Department's Inspector General for Tax Administration." Trans: She is a 12-year federal employee having worked for eight of those years at the IRS under the Bush administration. OOPS. Needless to say, now that the Daily Caller is trying to distance itself from Cain and eventually throw him under the bus, there's no room on their mud-splattered front page for this story ... plenty of white space, though.

As Herman "A = A" Cain tries his best third person impression of famous pulp fiction rapist, Ayn Rand's Howard Roark, "I have never acted inappropriately with anyone. Period," here's the kicker: Sharon Bialek is a self-described Tea Party member. “It all began when I took a convention break and joined my pals at the hotel bar. Sharon was drinking Mimosas with them. She said she was a Republican, a Tea Party member, had once dated [White Sox sports announcer’ Steve Stone] and had worked at WGN radio.”

OH MY. Be afraid, Teabaggers. Be very afraid. For if the sinister "DEMOCRAT MACHINE" can turn a Mimosa-drinking Tea Party member, imagine what they'll do when they grab you by the proverbial balls. Metaphorically speaking, of course. But can you feel the squeezing pressure already ... can you feel the pain after last night? Owowow ... let it out, Teabaggers. It's OK to squeal. It's OK to cry.
