Those Darn Husbandless Women

Yes. This is real.

The Herman Cain campaigned launched "Women for Herman Cain" today where astroturfers female supporters can share how wonderful Herman Cain really is and why Mrs. Herman Cain should pay no attention to those "pathetic husbandless women" accusing him of harassment and affairs. Really.

The initiative, the site says, is chaired by his wife, Gloria Cain, who has been virtually 100% absent from the campaign trail so far and only recently gave her first interview — and that was after canceling previous ones first. [...]

The real prize, however, is a section — which appears to be curated by the campaign — featuring female supporters’ personal testimonials, many of which are brutal attacks against the women who have accused Cain of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and infidelity.

“Dear Mrs. Cain, don’t pay attention to these pathetic husbandless women who are jealous of women like you in happy long-term marriages,” a supporter from California writes. “These vindictive women can’t find a husband or keep one. They are like stalkers who try to latch on to any man who shows a bit of kindness or attention to them. When these unstable women come out of the woodwork to make accusations about Herman just say, ‘Honey, get a life, I believe my husband.’ We want you to be our First Lady Mrs. Cain!”

This goes beyond "blame the victim" to shame the victim for having the audacity of claiming Herman Cain would even be interested in them in the first place.

At this point, the Cain campaign isn't so much denying the accusations as they are basically saying "Yeah, but they're bitches anyway!"

Ironically, the stock-photo of women giving the thumbs-up to Herman Cain has been removed from the website.

If even stock-women won't support you, how can you expect real women to?
