The Associated Press (AP) is reporting Republican Tea Party (GOTP) wannabe Herman Cain’s suspending his bid for the Republican presidential nomination to avoid continued news coverage of allegations of sexual misconduct that’s hurtful to his family.
“I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distractions and the continued hurt caused on me and my family,” Cain told several hundred supporters gathered at what was to have been the opening of his national campaign headquarters.
So, Cain’s dropping out because of the evil media’s coverage of the sexual allegations, but not because of his own misconduct?
Cain’s announcement came five days after an Atlanta-area woman claimed she and Cain had an affair for more than a decade, a claim which followed several allegations of sexual harassment against him.
“But because of these false and unproved accusations, it has paid and had a tremendous painful price on my family,” Cain said, with his wife, Gloria, standing behind him on the stage.
“Now here’s why it hurts – because my wife, my family and I, we know that those false and unproved allegations are not true; so one of the first declarations that I want to make to you today is that I am at peace with my God. I am at peace with my wife. And she is at peace with me.
And with that Herman “Pizza Man” Cain becomes a footnote to the 2012 GOTP Presidential primary season; good-bye Herman you’ve provided us all with hours of rib tickling entertainment.
