    “Cain said, ‘Darling, do you mind doctoring my tea for me?’”

    “Cain said, ‘Darling, do you mind doctoring my tea for me?’”

    It’s 8:10 a.m. Eastern, November 4, 2011, five days into the Herman Cain Scandal, and finally we have facts.

    Steve Deace, an anti-Cain Iowa talk show host, has made headlines which seem to corroborate that Herman Cain is a cad, as dutifully reported by ABC News, among others:

    A conservative Iowa radio host, who on Wednesday became the latest person to accuse Herman Cain of acting inappropriately toward women, declined to offer specifics about the presidential candidate’s behavior but suggested that Cain was “compromised in his private life.”

    Steve Deace, who hosts a syndicated two-hour radio program in Iowa, said that two of his female staff members were subjected to “inappropriate and awkward” comments by Cain. But he refused to identify them or elaborate on the seriousness of the allegations.

    While ABC News claims not to know the substance of the allegations, The Des Moines Register (h/t Charles, via Right Scoop) reports that Deace previously revealed at least one of the “awkward” statements on his radio show last month:

    During his Oct. 3 broadcast in Iowa, Deace mentioned that Cain made a comment to a woman who was there to report on the radio interview for another news agency.

    “Cain said, ‘Darling, do you mind doctoring my tea for me?’” Deace said.

    Deace told the Register last month that he believes Cain was talking about adding honey and lemon, but that it was an awkward moment.

    Shocking. Certainly a ground to ruin a presidential campaign, and enough for ABC News and, the all-Herman Cain, all-the-time Politico to run large headlines about it..

    There may be damning facts out there about Herman Cain.  And maybe we will actually hear the damning facts sooner or later.  But they’re not out there yet, as of 8:10 a.m. Eastern on November 4, 2011.

    Oh my! It is a strange world we have fashioned.

    I smile every time a waitress, clerk, cashier calls me “Hon”, “Sweetie”, “Dear”, etc. It takes me back 50 or 60 years to a different South for a moment (even though the latest instance was a jolly black woman). Never realized that I was being victimized in the process. Oh, wait I can’t be victimized. Wrong gender.

      I’m the right sex for victimization to be possible– and I miss random, friendly folks calling me “hon” or “darlin'” or such.

      Then again, I call folks ma’am and sir, and both of those get me scolded….

    I remember when companies were just starting to subject their employees to classes on sexual harassment. My husband would tell me how everyone in his department hated the classes. He had a team of people who worked well together, and they resented the classes. So one day one of the older women stood up in class and asked, “Where is this sexual harassment going on? Because I’d like to get some.” Everyone laughed, cheered and applauded.

    Not too long ago I was in Los Angeles,opened the door for my female aquaintance, a partner in one of the largest law firms in the world, and was immediately dressed down for sexism. I was rendered speachless.

    So even if this is all they got, it still might play in certain segments of our society.

    But not here in the South, thank God.

      have had that happen also, even though I hold the door for people no matter their sex.
      I always appreciate it when people do it for me (I am disabled) so I try to return the favor.
      what a crock.

      I read your comment and had to laugh ….I had the same thing happen to me ….I was a older student at Texas A&M and I open a door for a woman and she came unglued on me

      The worst thing about most feminists is they have absolutely no sense of humor. They sweeten their tea with indignation.

      When that happens to me, I just let go of the door and walk away. Usually they’ve stopped in it to tell me off and it slams on them. No skin off my nose, if they want to react to common courtesy by being nasty, they deserve what they get.

    As allegations go, that is weak tea.

    You know what? You should write this the way it was most probably said: “DARLIN’, do you mind doctoring my tea for me?”

    Cuz, you know, I could really hear Herman Cain sayin’ that.

    Just like my old Daddy.
