There's only one thing that can actually make Newt Gingrich's history of marital infidelity seem trite, and its name is Herman Cain. The man who gave us bad pizza and an even cheesier tax overhaul plan is once again at the center of a new sex scandal.
"Power corrupts" many of us, and Mr. Cain has indeed tasted the strong wine of power. So do the research yourself and come to your own conclusions.
Herman Cain spent a lifetime defying racial stereotypes. Now he has cartoonishly morphed into the embodiment of one of America's most unflattering, yet enduring, racial stereotypes of all.
