Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain just started living down that awkward smoking commercial starring his personality-free manager, cough cough.

And now comes the sexual-harassment scandal, whereby it's claimed that way back when he headed the National Restaurant Association, Cain said and/or did some inappropriate things to at least one woman.

Well, Cain has roundly denied the charges and called this a desperate witch hunt!

But now it's been confimed that a settlement did happen.

Yikes!

What's with people paying off accusers when they didn't even do anything?

Talk about a complete waste of hard-earned money, not to mention a weird exercise in mixed messages!

Very Michael Jackson, no?

Oh, relax, you cynics.

Cain says that it would have been the association that paid her off, and if they did, he hopes it wasn't very much.

Because the charges were totally baseless, remember?

Who did the settlement come from?  Still doesn't prove anything.  Let them come forward so the guy can at least face them.  Anything else wouldn't be fair.

His final comment on the matter will ultimately be "Well, at least I supposedly harassed a woman!"

What good presidential race doesn't have it's share of scandals. I love the "I hope it wasn't very much" response. I can't help it, I like this guy.

Maybe the Republicans are the ones who put this info out  there so they can lose him as a possible candidate?

When are those GOPiglets going to realize that Cain's a bull shitter, a Koch Bros. plant?

It's enough to make me a little bit cynical.
