AUDIO: Herman "Beat Obama with a Cain's" Princess Nancy debate quip was a repeat of an earlier one.

Via the L.A. Times: Hermie Cain had the following exchange with a supporter at a Michigan event. Nice imagery:

"How do you beat Obama – beat him with a Cain," Cain said to the friendly group of supporters.

As Cain was whisked out of the building through a back kitchen, a reporter asked what he meant by that joke.

"Herman Cain – C-A-I-N," Cain responded, spelling out the letters of his last name. "Do I have to connect all the dots for you?"

No, genius, which is exactly why the reporter asked you that question.

As for that snide little "Princess Nancy" remark he made at the debate, it wasn't the first time. Not only is he a serial harasser, he's a serial "Princess" wisecrack offender. Aug. 11, 2010 (relevant portion at 2:05), via Think Progress:

So what did Hermie have to say about the Pelosi slight on the heels of allegations of sexual harassment? Pretty much what many of us would expect:

"Why do you apologize — was it insensitive to call her that?" a reporter asked.

"So you all stop asking me about it," Cain replied.  "Look I’m about the big issues, fixing this economy, not focusing on stuff like that. Alrighty? So ask her why she called the tea party people Astroturf a couple of years ago. That ought to be the question."

Yes, make that comparison, because statements of fact are identical to sexist, gratuitous, and very unpresidential cheap shots.

    Please bear in mind he is appealing to the lowest common denominator in Repug politics, which means Tea Party evangelicals.  These people are so hypnotized in fundamentalist interpretation in Scripturds they actually think women are no better than "help mates" to men.  The ritualized subordination of women is common to ALL the big monotheisms, explaining their fear of women and contempt for them (Saul Paul of Syrenia was a misogynistic homophobe who internalized the concept of guilt each time he got a hard on for Jesus).  This is the traditional American marriage.  Sadly, in the age of space stations and an understanding that the demise of dinosaurs occurred hundreds of thousand of years before man, such people are sadly anachronistic.  Worse, they dream up crazy ideas about their fellows.  Thus, there is a "homosexual agenda," suggesting that their paranoid fantasies are so reactionary they believe even sane people should accept them as reality.  The Tony Perkinses and Rick Santorums of this world should be locked up in asylums for the insane.
