Thank you for your hard work Anderson and that or your team!! Has anyone thought about reminding Mr. Herman Cain that all of the women accusing him (Herman) of inappropriate behavior are women """"""at Risk"""""? These are American citizens and women of integrity that have all fallen on hard times and there is Herman Cain with his hard-on and happy hands ready to help them????? Give me a break. This guy represents the worst of the 80's and 90's grab- ass good old boy network of executives who thing they can do anything and get away with it. Herman Cain is fired.
Normally I'm a big fan, but right now, I have to say that I am exhausted by the minute examinations of sexual misconduct allegations everywhere I turn. Fifteen minutes of last night's show was devoted to yet another extended, multi-commentator rehash of the same allegations we have been hearing for days. I'm not trying to excuse the behavior of anyone involved in the stories. I am just saying that until something substantially new comes along, it shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes to tell us once again that Sandusky has been alleged to do very bad things, Fine has been alleged to do very bad things, and Herman Cain has been alleged to do very bad things. Let's get on with some news, please.
PS. Can we please let Michael Jackson and his idiot doctor rest while we're at it?
