Ann Coulter puts the Cain accusations in context and it seems fairly despicable and highly implausible.

I will note that the other day I posted on the new Cain accusation then only weakly pseudo-denied by Cain’s lawyer (who he should immediately fire) which only served to make him look guilty. Cain has now firmly denied the accusations and after reading this Coulter piece, this looks like one of the worst political hit jobs ever.

After the first round of baseless accusations against Cain, an endless stream of pundits rolled out the cliche – as if it were the height of originality – “This isn’t he said-she said; it’s he-said, she-said, she-said, she-said, she–said.”

Au contraire: We had two “shes” and only one “said.”

Remember? Only two women were willing to give their names. And as soon as they did, we discovered that they were highly suspicious accusers with nothing more than their personal honor to support the allegations. Only one of the two would even say what Cain allegedly did.

Ginger White claims she had a 13-year affair with Cain – and all she has are two books with inscriptions that could have been written to an auto mechanic who waited in line at a Cain book signing. Even her business partner during the alleged affair says White never mentioned Cain’s name.

These women are like triple-A ball players with the stats being: number of bankruptcies, smallest bank account, number of liens, most false claims, number of children out of wedlock, degrees of separation from David Axelrod, total trips to human resources and so on.

That wouldn’t be dispositive – except for the fact that their only evidence is their word.

But this is how liberals dirty you up when they’ve got nothing: They launch a series of false accusations, knowing that Americans with busy lives won’t follow each story to the end and notice that they were all blind alleys.

Read the whole thing.
