CAIN CAMPAIGN UNABLE TO FIND REAL WOMEN SUPPORTERS
The Herman Cain presidential effort, virtually dead from several accusations of sexual harassment and an extramarital affair that ended in financial payoff, is still twitching.
On Friday, it announced the creation of “Women For Cain”, a move which can only be described as so obvious as to be tragic. The group, headed by wife Gloria Cain, is designed to “inspire a national women’s alliance in support of Herman Cain for 2012,” according to the campaign’s website.
However, the campaign was unable to locate actual women supporters to give an enthusiastic thumbs up and was forced to use a stock photo, a fact noted almost immediately by several news organizations.
As of this writing, 1:15 pm mountain time, the photo is still up, becoming both funnier and sadder by the moment.
An anonymous spokesman said that efforts are underway to remove the photo, “but we can’t seem to find the webmaster,” who, the campaign now suspects, is a Democrat.
