Just in case you thought slutgate had reached its apogee of absurdity, the entrance into the story of sluts and hos attorney Gloria Allred should inform you otherwise.
In a matter of a week, Herman Cain referred to the House Democratic leader as "Princess Nancy" Pelosi, said presidential rival Michele Bachmann would be "tutti-frutti" ice cream and shrugged off a joke about Anita Hill.
Gloria Cain, the wife of GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain, will appear on Fox News Monday evening to talk about the sexual misconduct allegations that have been dogged her husband's campaign in recent weeks.

Nothing is more powerful than that image of Adam giving up all for Eve. He chose to leave paradise and work for a living rather than lose the woman he loved. (Besides, he couldn't spare another rib.)

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is vowing to "set the record straight" at a news conference one day after a fourth woman — and the first to reveal her identity — accused him of inappropriate sexual behavior a decade ago, the latest in a string of claims that have rocked his presidential campaign.
Herman Cain defiantly denied all the charges against him, vowed to remain in the Republican presidential race and hinted that Democrats may be behind the sexual harassment story that has dogged him for 10 days.

Speaking in a halting voice, a Chicago-area woman on Monday accused Republican presidential contender Herman Cain of making an unwanted sexual advance against her more than a decade ago, saying she wanted to provide "a face and a voice" to support other accusers who so far have remained anonymous.
