Bill Bennett: “It is hypocritical in the extreme for those members of the media who didn’t take the charges and allegations against Bill Clinton seriously to be taking the allegations against Herman Cain that we now have as seriously as they are. Hypocritical is probably too soft a word, frankly.”
Except Bill Clinton stood accused of cheating on his wife, in a tawdry but consensual affair. Herman Cain, instead, has been accused by no less than five women of using his power to attempt to extract sexual favors. One of those is much, much worse than the other, John Derbyshire’s shocking sexism notwithstanding.
