End of the one-week scandal about nothing
As always, I appreciate your reasoned perspective on the Cain harassment “scandal.” It’s so refreshing to read someone who manages to stay truly neutral. Every other commentator seems to have staked out either a pro-Cain or anti-Cain position and is sticking to it. [LA replies: Thank you. I’m reminded of a Jewish comedian I heard when I was a kid who said, “I wish that blacks would gain equality, so we could go back to disliking individual black people if we want.” Well, now that the media’s outrageously improper sexual “harassment” accusations against Cain, from which I defended him, are fading, I’m free to go back to pointing out his complete lack of ability and preparedness for the presidency.]LA replies:
Iseman is the lobbyist who the New York Times in a hyperventilating front page story in 2008 suggested was having an affair with Sen. McCain. Some McCain ex-staffers had said they were concerned that McCain was seeing too much of her. The Times built this into something that wasn’t there and the media went wild with it for a few days.
