Herman Cain: Conspiracy Theorist
Herman Cain is blaming the sexual harassment allegations against him on some kind of unstated conspiracy:
The latest chapter of the Cain leak blame game came Friday when the Georgia businessman was interviewed by FOX Business Network’s Neil Cavuto.
Asked whether he believes Perry released the information, he responded: “There are too many coincidences but we don’t have any facts so we are not going to accuse anyone.”
Cain sees a vast conspiracy, but (unlike Hillary Clinton) didn’t say whether it was a right-wing or left-wing conspiracy.
“People who do not want me to get the nomination or become president, it’s probably a network of them, are behind this,” Cain told Cavuto. “They knew people would believe the accusation whether it was true or not. Let’s take a little bit of shine off of Herman’s star and see whether it will help reduce the enthusiasm people have. They achieved that objective. Here is what backfired: More people believe me than the accusations.”
Given that all the previous Cain conspiracy theories have been debunked by, you know, facts, it’s probably advisable for Cain to be non-specific here. Nonetheless, I really have to wonder about the judgment of a person who believes that everything that happens to him is because some unnamed conspiracy is out to get him. What’s next Herman, tinfoil hats?
