Now That Herman Cain Is Gone...

... Ishmael Reed comes to his defense — Herman Cain, the Latest Black Boogeyman. He writes:
    When Clarence Thomas, a lawyer, said that he was subjected to a high tech lynching, in the first famous trial by television, he meant that he wasn’t allowed to cross examine his accusers... [W]hy were those who are so concerned about the rights of the incarcerated Al Qaeda seem so ridden with ideology that they weren’t concerned about Thomas’s rights and oblivious to some of the contradictions in Anita Hill’s story[?] Like Thomas, Cain wasn’t given a chance to face his accusers... At least nobody died as a result of Cain’s alleged adultery.
Unlike Clinton's substantiated adultery, I might add. Mr. Reed, however, is "glad that he’s gone" because "Cain posed a bigger threat to President Obama’s reelection than any of the people now running." He concludes, "If he’d received the nomination for vice president, all that the GOP would have had to do was to send him to black churches nationwide, have him preach, and sing the gospel with that silky voice of his. They might have gotten one third of the black vote."
