CAIN: Yes, President Obama is very likable to most people, if you just look at him and his family. But if you look at his policies, which is what most people disagree with, it’s a different story. And I think many men are much more familiar with the failed policies than a lot of other people, as well as the general public.
Preposterous. Aside from the blatant sexism, Cain’s statement makes no sense. Who are these “other people” who aren’t familiar with President Obama’s purported failed policies? And how are these “other people” different than the people who comprise “the general public”? I want to meet these “other people” who are neither men, women, nor members of the “general public.” Are they robots? Cylons? We may never know.
It must be that men are familiar with the Kenyan Usurper-in-Chief’s inherent cryptosocialist Kenyan Hitlerianism because they’re stupid.
Turns out my BFF in elementary school was right: Boys are dumb.
ABL aka Angry Black Lady aka Imani Gandy is a recovering attorney with a burning love of fire and perfectly-constructed sentences. The “anger” portion of her moniker stems not from her displeasure at the hellscape that American politics has become, but rather is a symptom of the pituitary tumor which has been indefinitely detained in her brain since 2006. When she’s not pointing out that people are wrong on the Internet – or writing for Balloon Juice, The Grio, The Team Uterati Wiki Project, or RH Reality Check -- she likes long sits on the beach. Also, she thinks gravity is a real downer. You can follow her on Twitter at @AngryBlackLady.
