Let's get something clear. I haven't really heard anyone suggest Mr. Cain should be getting a pass if his conduct turns out to have reached the level of, for example, a Bill Clinton, but I'm still trying to figure out exactly what that conduct is, was, or might have been. Is there some secret way of refuting unspecified charges by an unspecified person while being held to an unspecified gag order regarding the unspecified charges? In other words, how exactly can anyonedeliver a knockout punch to something as unsubstantial as air? I don't think that I have to stipulate to the fact that in asking whether the Left retains any ethical or moral standards at all that I am asking a rhetorical question. Is it really true that every Black Conservative of note is a secret sexual predator? What is it with the Left's preoccupation with sex? Is it they think that any whisper of sexual misconduct is enough to sink the chances of any Conservative with his/her base? Regardless of whether one supports Mr. Cain's presidential aspirations I can only hope that most Americans require more evidence than what we have seen so far before determining the guilt or innocence of any individual, public or private.
