I think that focusing so much on someone’s personal, sexual, or marital affairs is a distraction. It’s a matter of degree; if it’s above a certain point, yes. If you have someone who has lived a polygamous life, that would raise questions about their character and ability to obey the law. But the fact that somebody had been divorced and remarried—so what? Infidelity? If people want to put that into their evaluation, they have the right to do so. But the first thing I want to assess is your ability to lead and solve problems.
Herman Cain, he the one-time frontrunner of the GOP primary campaign, tells us about the role he thinks sexual behavior ought to play in evaluating candidates for public office. 

Tim Heidecker (he of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job) has grown quite fond of Herman Cain these past few days, releasing a catchy campaign ad and a song for the GOP candidate. Yesterday, Tim tweeted his “Cain Song Opus” was going to be released, and asked “which media site would like an exclusive?” Naturally, we jumped on board. World, we’re honored to bring you ‘Lord Cain,’ described by Tim as “a song that you will never be able to unhear again.” Not that we would want to!

And now: Herman Cain singing an ode to pizza to the Beatles John Lennon tune ‘Imagine.’ SNL couldn’t even make this up.

Herman Cain on #OccupyWallStreet: "If you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself!"http://motherjones.com/mojo/2011/10/cain-occupywallstreet-if-youre-unemployed-blame-yourself

It’s like they’re not even pretending anymore.

Also important: Cain believes banks may have had “something to do with the crisis in 2008,” but hey, he says,  we’re not in 2008 anymore! “We’re in 2011! Okay?” No. That’s not OK.
