Herman Cain
Mark Block and Herman Cain need to talk
Last night, just hours after Herman Cain's campaign manager Mark Block retracted accusations that a strategist for Rick Perry was responsible for leaking Cain's sexual harassment history to the media, Cain appeared on Sean Hannity's radio show to double-down on the claim:
"I don’t see another way it could’ve come out," Cain said in an unannounced radio interview with conservative commentator Sean Hannity. "There aren’t enough bread crumbs that we can lay down that leads us anywhere else at this point in time."

Those "bread crumbs"? Herman Cain's—who can't remember what he said from one campaign stop to another—sudden recollection of a conversation he had eight years earlier.

It seems that Cain, who just 24 hours earlier complained about media focus on the sexual harassment story, saying:

That is the D.C. culture. Guilty until proven innocent.

... has no problem with guilty until proven innocent if it'll distract the media and take some of the heat off him.

Good luck with that, Herman.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
