Today is election day across the nation and especially in Virginia and Ohio. Lots of races, lots of issues. But we await next year’s presidential election.
Today, as Herman Cain experiences a batch of “bimbo eruptions” it is amusing to watch Republicans/conservatives clutch their Clenis teddy bears. “Clenis” is a portmanteau word derived from “Clinton” and “penis” and increasingly – instead of learning from Bill Clinton – Republicans/conservatives are reheating, re-litigating and regurgitating outrages from their “Clenis” youth.
We’ve discussed this “E over I” Republican/conservative mentality before. Our inner Yoda advises “I over E”.
It does not occur to these Republicans/conservatives that Bill Clinton, a man with a randy and “complicated” history, still managed to beat back campaign-killing issues (in those days especially). Bill Clinton left the presidency with his approval ratings in the 60s having overcome and defeated attacks against him which would ordinarily kill an elephant – which included pot smoking, marital infidelity, alleged murders, alleged drug airports, alleged rapes, cigars, alleged black babies, and an appetite for more than just McDonalds.
Still Republicans/conservatives cannot but beat the Clenis like a rented elephant. It’s sad really.
The resurrected outrage du jour (you can almost see the bulging neck veins bursting) these days in defense of Herman Cain is the Juanita Broadderick “rape”. Instead of screaming in outrage and making fools of themselves, Republicans (this means you Herman Cain) should get off the cross and examine how Bill Clinton managed to almost easily overcome this entirely trumped up, but potentially damaging, Juanita Broderick fake “rape” bulls*it (hopefully this link we provide will persuade the “rape” screamers).
The “Clenis” worshipers will scream and argue themselves hoarse that no comparison can be made and no lessons learned because “Bill Clinton is a liarrrrrrrrr and Herman Cain is an innocent telling the truuuuuuuuth.” But darlings, none of that matters if you stop and think about it (cue the screams about how we don’t care about the truth and Clinton is evil and this is proof of how immoral and corrupt we are). The bottom line is that most of these cases are a matter of he said she said and a bungled defense and falling poll numbers won’t be helped by genuine innocence.
The Bill Clinton “rape” nonsense and the Herman Cain allegations are striking in that both have the same solution and the same lesson. The lesson? Simple: Shadowboxing is a loser’s game. You will never outbox a shadow.
A lot of people forget that Bill Clinton was boxing shadows around the time that a certain intern became famous. The Clinton White House was confused and dazed and Bill Clinton was in danger of being forced to resign. Then a Republican/conservative operative “hit man” by the name of David Brock had a change of heart and tutored the Clintons on the forces that were bringing them down.
Brock clued the Clintons in on the federal judge and the Republican/conservative activists that acted behind the scenes. The “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” was born and the Clintons had something other than shadoows to box and attack. [Brock eventually wrote “Blinded By The Right” and his friend Joe Conosen wrote “The Hunting of the President” and those who want to relive those days may do so by a little research.]
Hillary Clinton in 2008 also boxed shadows. It was only after Hillary Clinton realized that her campaign (especially Iowa) was sabotaged from the inside, that public supporters like Chuck Schumer were privately advising Obama to hit her with a 2×4, and that Ted Kennedy and Tom Daschle along with many in the Democratic establishment were actively undermining her in secret.
It was only after Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton stopped boxing shadows and targeting their real opponents that they succeeded. Hillary Clinton learned far too late that it was
Barzini Kennedy (and Big Media) who was her real opponent. Once Hillary discarded her delusions about what was really behind the Obama circus she beat Obama even as she was outspent in state after state and the Democratic Party establishment demanded her withdrawal.
Don’t shadowbox. Bill Clinton destroyed the fake “rape” allegations by telling the truth and noting that the woman in question repeatedly sought him out and did not act in the way a “rape” victim would act. To the contrary, the woman in question had an agenda.
As soon as the allegations against Herman Cain emerged we asked who was behind the allegations. We suggested it was either the Romney campaign or the Obama campaign. Cain made the mistake of disagreeing with us and suggesting it was the Perry campaign. Cain regretted blaming Perry.
Cain better stop shadowboxing and realize who is behind these allegations. It’s probably the Obama campaign. Connect the dots.
Sharon Bialek, lives in Chicago, in the same building as David Axelrod. Um…. Gloria Allred is not exactly a Republican operative. While Allred has spoken out against people like Anthony Weiner, Weiner was dead meat at the time Allred came forth. Allred was instrumental in bringing down Republican Meg Whitman in California. The initial allegations by anonymous accusers was leaked to Politico, the Obama lovin’ organ of choice in matters of public opinion. Connect the dots.
The answers are out there in the sex files. The sex files are an Axelrod specialty. The fourth accuser has spoken out in a very strong manner but her financial history suggests she might have financial motives at the very least for speaking out publicly:
“The emerging portrait of Herman Cain’s most recent accuser shows a suburban homemaker with a history of financial and legal troubles, but one who supporters say has the guts to do the right thing. [snip]
Bialek said she shared her allegations with her then-boyfriend and another male friend shortly after her meeting with Cain. However, the man she is now engaged to said she did not tell him about her history with the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO until Friday night, when she told him she was going to New York for the news conference. [snip]
Records show she twice has filed for personal bankruptcy, first in 1991 and then again in 2001. In the latter case, she claimed $5,700 in assets and more than $36,000 in liabilities. Among the creditors seeking payment was a management firm demanding back rent of $4,500, four credit card companies and a lawyer asking for his legal fees.
After the case was discharged, she accused a former boyfriend of harassing her for repayment of a loan, court records in the bankruptcy case show. Bialek borrowed $4,500 from William Concha, though Concha now believes she had no intention of paying him back, according to his brother, Mario. [snip]
Her father, Chester Bialek, said he did not know about his daughter’s allegation until Monday. Reached at his home in Arizona, he said he was surprised by the revelation but supported her decision to come forward.
“I’m very proud of my daughter, that’s all I can tell you,” he said.
As TV trucks pulled up in front of her Mundelein home and reporters rang the doorbell, Harwood said his fiancee does not plan any legal action against Cain and does not intend to stand in the political spotlight for very long.
“We’re in it together,” he said. “My only concern is that it not become some type of media circus.”
“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.”
Drinking Mimosas then hugging someone who grabbed your crotch and dragged your head to his genitals is not exactly behavior which conforms with the allegations made as Gloria Allred stood next to her.
As to the previous “she doesn’t say, he says” allegations, we still don’t know what the anonymous accusers allege so it is difficult to refute. But one is a federal employee at a relatively high level who has chosen to remain silent although clearly many around her are trying to blow smoke.
Today at the Herman Cain press conference held late in the afternoon the usual “he said” refutations were heard. Herman Cain made a strong case for himself. Meanwhile Glenn Beck has helped undermine the significance of the Sharon Bialek Herman Cain hug.
While Herman Cain gets a rectal exam type vetting an old familiar name in the annals of Obama corrupt pals reemerged today.
Donald Trump, a real estate expert, agrees with us that the entire Obama Rezko House deal stinks like a Chicago stockyard. Yet JournoListers protected their love, Barack Obama, from Rezko’s taint. Obama said he was “bone-headed” and JournoListers swooned.
Antoin “Tony” Rezko, pal and investor in Barack Obama, is about to be sentenced (November 22).
According to documents filed with the court Obama pal Rezko was as much of a lowlife as many wrote. According to the Government:
“Rezko argues that he should receive a sentence of time served because he is similarly situated to others who cooperated with the government and received sentences less than 45 months. No government cooperator or other defendant Rezko mentions, however, approaches the level of criminal conduct in which Rezko engaged in except one – Stuart Levine. [snip]
From the very beginning of Blagojevich’s regime, Rezko had been actively plotting with Blagojevich, Kelly, and Monk, literally sitting in a room with the Governor of Illinois criminally scheming how they could make millions of dollars together. Rezko had access and influence in a way that Levine could only dream about, and Rezko abused that access and influence on a scale that surpassed even what Levine planned to do at the Planning Board and TRS. [snip]
Rezko has neither testified, been subject to invasive cross-examination on the totality and minutia of his criminal conduct, nor agreed to forgo the protections in his proffer with the government. [snip]
Rezko compounded this perjury by writing a letter to the Court which he tried to win his release from jail by falsely claiming 1) that he had done nothing wrong with Blagojevich; and 2) that the prosecution was putting pressure on him to lie about Blagojevich. Not only was this a false statement to a judge; it was a false statement exculpating one of the key people against whom Rezko might have cooperated…”
That’s Obama’s long-time pal and money-bags. All the corruption of planning boards (hey Michelle doesn’t that bring back good memories?) and subverting government for private gain – but little investigation. Big Media is busy sniffing crotches and panties.
The Chicago Corruption continues. The drive-by shootings have just begun.
