Women for Herman Cain is a slapped together one page section of Cain's campaign website that is (poorly) designed to convince us that Herman Cain cares about women (in a respectful, non-adulterous and harassment-free sort of a way) and women care about Herman Cain. Of course, they describe it a bit differently:
Ooh, an online fellowship. Sounds prestigious. In fact, I think we'll start one too. Let's call it The ESC Online Fellowship for Calling Out Blatant Pandering By Sexist Candidates. Contact us to join.
"Women For Cain" is an online national fellowship of women dedicated to helping elect Herman Cain as the next President of the United States.
Mr. Cain has been a strong advocate for women throughout his lifetime, defending and promoting the issues of quality health care, family, education, equality in the workplace and many other concerns so important to American women.Hopefully that short paragraph tells you all you wanted to know about Cain's positions on the issues that matter to women, because that's all you're going to get.
Gloria Cain is the National Chairperson for "Women for Cain" and is the very special woman who Mr. Cain devoted his life to many years ago. Mr. Cain and Gloria celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary earlier this year. The couple has two children and three grandchildren and a legacy of family, friends, and community and church involvement.Assuming that even one of the allegations of sexual harassment and/or adultery that has been made against Herman Cain is true, fuck him for naming her the "chairperson" of this nonsense.
"Women For Cain" was formed to inspire a national women's alliance in support of Herman Cain 2012 and Friends of Herman Cain. Please join our conversation to learn of volunteer opportunities and to be informed of issues and events surrounding the Herman Cain campaign.
So what else can be found on Women for Herman Cain? A lovely purple logo (at least it's not pink, I guess), a photo featuring a diverse group of female Herman Cain supporters that turned out to be a stock photo that has already been used on several other websites, and, of course, a big Donate Now button. The rest of the site is made up of testimonials that have been sent in by Cain's many many many female fans. Here's a sampling of the wisdom and insight to be found there:
Please don't let the opposition win, they are vile liars and will face God for what they've done to you. How can We the People choose who WE want (you!) if you allow them to run you off? Gingrich has DONE all the things they're accusing you of, and Romney is a RINO.. we call him Obama Lite. PLEASE don't give up. Speak up loud and clear that you are not giving up, and please let Gloria speak out again. I'll admit that when I heard that you sent $ to a woman w/out your wife knowing, it gave me pause.. I wouldn't appreciate my hubby sending $ to another woman w/out my approval... but then I thought about and discussed it with everyone I know. We came to the conclusion that you're a good man worth the benefit of the doubt. We figure that you're probably a very busy man who comes in contact w/ tons of people daily, and that you probably both have friends the other isn't friends with, and that you have helped other people, men and women, without discussing it, because that's just what you do, you're a softie (stop that now!) and got taken advantage of. That happens. I have NO doubts about you after thinking and praying about it. If Mrs. Cain is OK w/ what you did, I am. Please send her back to Greta again! That's between you two anyway. Lots of couples have separate money and do what they want with it. That is ok! Don't give up sir, please. Don't make me beg! Don't let the evil conspirators push you out of this race.
Okay, we'll give this woman half a point for the Gingrich comment, that was kinda funny.
I am a single mom of three children and two have autism. I like what Mr Cain has to say. He the only one that wants to talk about the REAL issues. Im tired of all the side tracking of unimportant accusations by people from years and years ago. Today is what Im interested in. And the tomorrow of our country is what I want to be talked about. Im voting for Hermain Cain.
Ah, the 'it allegedly happened a long time ago so who cares?' argument. Very solid.
Stay in the race. I am so turned off by these women who get their 5 minutes of fame - they set women back a century. They are an insult to sucessful working women. I have been successfully self employed in a male dominated industry, commercial real estate, and never once did I have a problem with any male counterpart. I was fortunate that I was mentored because I worked for it. So I can relate to you in your journey of success. You appear to be a very decent human being that genuinely will help anyone and you also appear to be a true gentleman. Its disgusting these women have taken advantage of you. They are the ones with questionable character, not you. It also appears that your wife is a true lady and has the character to see through all of these allegations to what they are - attempts to keep you from running because you are a threat to the status quo. If JFK was running today,my what a feeding frenzy that would be, yet he is an adored former president.
And the 'I've never experienced sexism myself so women who say they have must be liars' argument. We're on a roll now!
Mr. Cain, To me you are the embodiment of the prayers of every faithful believing slave who turned to ALMIGHTY GOD for deliverance from slavery and inequality. You are the embodiment of Martin Luther King Jr. 'I have a dream' speech. You are the only hope I have for a future in America!Be strong and of good courage Mr. Cain, Our God Reigns!
Based on the picture that accompanied this comment, it appears to have been written by a white woman. I don't even know where to start.
I truly believe THEHermanCain is exactly what America needs now. I appreciate that he speaks from his heart, has a plan for success, and is NOT a slick TV personality or debater. I worry that if the media succeeds in their "assassination by innuendo" it could be the end of our Republic. Will it continue to be that easy for progressives to destroy their opponents? We The People are the ultimate losers if they succeed.
This is one of many comments that blamed all of the allegations against Cain on the media or a liberal conspiracy or some combination of the two, because apparently Cain's candidacy is a huge threat to us because...well...um...I'm sure there are some very good reasons, and Cain's supporters will get around to telling us what those reasons are very soon.
Mrs. Cain, I'm so very sorry for the pain you've had to suffer at the hands of these seriously troubled women and those behind them. Such an elegant lady as you should never have to deal with such scum. My prayers are with you and Mr. Cain. I have no doubt Herman Cain is the person we need to restore our country to its God-blessed glory!
There's nothing like a nice dose of compassionate conservative Christian victim-blaming.
I absolutely believe that you can beat Obama in 2012. Remember Clarence Thomas and hang in there.
Ah, yes. Remember Clarence Thomas? I sure do.
Mr Cain, I want to thank you for running for President. Your decision to do so was not a selfish one, but one of a desire to help the country you love. You have seen the failures of the current administration and felt confident that your skills and talents could change America in a GOOD way, and you were willing to step in and do that! But now because of scheming women that can be swayed by money, attention or whatever else the reason may be, your reputation is at stake - not theirs as it should be. I do not believe these women are victims...I believe you are. Because of what they have done to you, your family and to the American people who have placed their hope for our country in you and your abilities, you are faced with a dilemma of what your life choices from here should and will be. I feel certain because you are a man of integrity and character that your decision has been bathed in prayer by you and Ms Cain, and those close to your family that love you. Much of America is joining with you all in prayer & fasting too.
I accept the fact that Herman Cain has supporters. I accept the fact that his supporters choose not to believe any of the women who are accusing Cain of sexual harassment or adultery. I can even accept that some people believe that sexual harassment doesn't really exist and was invented by us angry humorless feminists. But I cannot and will not buy the idea that "much of America" is joining with Cain not just in prayer, but fasting as well. I have limits.
Mrs Cain, I just want to say that you are an amazing woman to have to survive this liberal lynching of your husband. I and many other woman are standing by your man because he shows integrity, faithfulness, and inspiration. But we are also standing by you. I am praying for you to get through this one day at a time. The enemy may set doubts, but the Lord will clear your path. God bless you Mrs. Cain, soon to be First Lady( and you certainly own that title).
Liberal lynching? Oh.
Mr. Cain (aka The Hermanator)--It's very upsetting to witness your campaign and personal life subjected to this American 'impact of reality television'. It's pathetic and shameful women are so desperate for their five minutes of fame that they would position themselves against the greatest potential president Americans could be blessed enough to have.
This woman may be onto something with the reality TV concept. If Mrs. Cain chooses not to stand by her man, we look forward to seeing For the Love of Herman or Cain Train of Love on Vh1 very soon.
I cannot believe you had time for an affair. If you are ill and fighting for your life,suffering through chemotherapy,how can you have time between hospital visits and family time? Wouldn't you be too sick to participate in a make-believe affair? You are a triple threat to the Left!! I believe these "women" are looking for money and attention and have been groomed by the "Demonacrats" to be a bunch of bad actress'. The Left is desperate and they are low enough to break the law and lie. My husband and I are strong supporters. Don't let the bad guys win. Don't give up!! 999!!! :)
He's a triple threat? What, like he can act, sing, and dance? And I was going to be annoyed by the fact that this comment paints Cain's accusers as money-grubbing attention whores, but then I saw that little smiley face at the end and I couldn't stay mad.
Dear Mr. Cain, I am a 66 year old female architect in the State of Texas, and want to simply say... as a REAL woman I do not believe for one second any of these "women" that have crawled out from under a rock somewhere to defame you and bring pain to you and your family. They are pitiful creatures at the very least, and evil at the most. Isn't it convenient that they have suddenly become offended by supposed advances by you now after all these years, my goodness, poor babies, how have they been able to bare up under the pain for all these oh so many years... LIARS, LIARS, LIARS...GO GET THEM HERMAN AND PLEASE DO NOT QUIT!!!!
I also hope you pursue a slander, libel, defamation of character suit against this moneygrubbing, lying woman.
Hello, Herman Cain, you need to focus about this America" and don't even listen to all this women ,that they don't have nothing good to say about you... they they are money hungry... and women like this, Don't care or don't have no "SHAME to go on TV...to use lies, for money...somebody has been paying this women. They make me sick to my stomach.....they need to start digging a hole on the ground n till they rich china' So, Mr,Cain put your 2 feet on the ground and do your duty....you are here to do, a job....that we in "America" need you......You can not give up.... your or the man....Like God said be for you were born he already knew what you were going to do,if not GOD himself, will remove you from earth....
I do not believe a single one of the "women" who have accused you. I believe you to be a God-fearing man who loves his wife and children. Don't let Satan and his demons win. Stay true to the Lord's will and stay in this race.
These testimonials are great because I'm really learning so much about why Herman Cain is a great candidate for women and why women support him. So much helpful insight.
We need a first lady to bring back grace and style back to the White house..We need you.
Cool, let's throw in a random slam on Michelle Obama cause why not?
I don't believe allegations that have been run thru the media and pray for you and your wife daily.
Okay, I get it, the media is horrible and liberal and evil. But how would this woman like to find out about allegations like this if they're not "run thru the media"? I guess Cain's accusers should have showed up at her house to tell her about it personally.
So what have we learned from Women for Herman Cain? We've learned that the allegations against Cain are nothing but a liberal/media conspiracy perpetuated by lying women (or "women" who aren't like REAL women) who only want money, attention, and/or fame and who may or may not be in league with Satan. We've also learned that the Cain campaign thought it was a good idea to post all of these testimonials instead of, say, some information about Cain's positions on the issues and plans for the future that might actually be helpful to women voters. And in a way I guess this teaches us everything we need to know.
Rumors are swirling tonight that Herman Cain may drop out of the presidential race tomorrow. If that turns out to be true, I'll be so grateful that we got to enjoy Women for Herman Cain as a lovely parting gift. And I don't know about you, but I'm really looking forward to Women for Newt Gingrich.
