Bimbos

Is Herman Cain the only GOP Presidential Candidate with Problems Respecting Women?

In a word, no.  Jon Huntsman has proven himself to be a grade-A jerk in the last few days as well.

Granted, Huntsman’s indiscretions aren’t anywhere in the league of those allegedly committed by Herman Cain, but his comments are quite telling.

In the wake of the news of Herman Cain’s most recent scandal involving an alleged 13-year sexual affair with a woman other than his wife, Huntsman was asked for his thoughts on Cain’s situation.

“We’ve got real issues to talk about not the latest bimbo eruption,” Huntsman told the Boston Herald editorial board.

Now, keep in mind that 4 of the 5 women who have made allegations against Cain have alleged unwelcomed sexual overtures from Cain.  So, I guess that means that, in Huntsman’s mind, women who complain about sexual harassment are “bimbos.”   Way to add insult to injury.

Of course this is coming from the guy who, on the night before he was announced as the Ambassador to China, when his terrified daughter ran to his hotel room because a strange man had broken into her hotel room as she slept, responded by saying, “Liddy, this is the most important day of my life, and you’ve ruined it!”

Okay, he just went from chauvinist jerk to self-centered, poor-excuse-for-a-father.  Seriously, what kind of father doesn’t jump out of bed and immediately take action to protect his daughter’s safety?  I guess now we know how Huntsman would respond to that 3 a.m. phone call to the White House – poorly.

If Jon Huntsman doesn’t want to have to talk about “bimbo eruptions,” perhaps he should drop out of the race and go home, because, from where I’m standing, he’s the only bimbo I see.

Well, him and Herman Cain.
