You see, Herman Cain won't really answer the simple question: "Did you pay off these women who accused you of sexual harassment?" But he does mention his sense of humor. Is his sense of humor to blame for these recent allegations?
Ole "Squirmin' Herman" had the following to say about the allegations, and the ambiguous statement is surely enough to draw conclusions on the man's character, and the possible truth behind the accusations of sexual harassment:
"I do have a sense of humor and some people have a problem with that."
His response doesn't really hide that he's dodging the simple questions, which by itself makes him look like he's full of dung; but he really just created more questions with his weird answer. What kind of "sense-of-humor" could he be talking about, that warrants itself as a response to a question regarding sexual misconduct? It seems like he's already creating a half-assed scapegoat against these accusations because he obviously will not, or cannot, deny them.
Hey, everyone likes a good laugh now and then; dirty jokes are some of the most enjoyable. However, in a workplace environment it's absolutely unacceptable to make sexually suggestive or even minorly degrading comments whether it be done in humor or otherwise. This doesn't change whether you're a grunt who works for minimum wage or the president of some restaurant association.
If this is the case, and Herman Cain simply made some joke mistakes while in mixed company, then maybe he should just come out and say it. Hell, the right-wing fanatics won't stop loving him. These are the people who continue to listen to Rush Limbaugh even though he's been through more women than Snooki has rubbers (please, please say she uses rubbers).
It's apparent that perhaps Herman Cain isn't a viewer of the hit series South Park, because if he was, he wouldn't have missed the hilarious, and educational, Sexual Harassment Panda episode. The 37th episode took you through the dos and do nots of social situations, and the Sexual Harassment Panda even performed a cheerful and easy to understand tune. See the clip above, and here's to hoping "Squirmin'" Herman Cain sees it and just comes out with a definitive answer to the simple question he is being asked.
