Studios in New York City where we've got a great audience with us here today in the studio.
But you know after all the uproar over the allegations of sexual harassment by Herman Cain.
I realized that I myself.
Have been a victim of sexual harassment and I didn't even know it.
I fly through the Atlanta airport often sometimes several days a week.
-- my favorite place for a quick meal on the go is the -- -- chicken in terminal B.
I like it because the food is quick and delicious.
And especially I just adored the staff there because.
They speak the southern language that I grew up on and still understand.
But in light of the Herman Cain controversy.
I realize it might not have been southern gentility but sexual harassment.
Because the ladies behind the counter called me honey.
And -- Maybe instead of feeling at home -- should have been offended called a lawyer and demanded free spicy chicken for life.
I mean I should have known something was an appropriate when they asked me if I wanted legs breasts -- side.
And then the wanted to know did I want spicy.
Or what about when I ask if I wanted my -- sweetened.
And all that time I thought it was just a friendly transaction over some chicken homemade biscuits and cajun rice.
Of course I need to wait fifteen years before -- work up the necessary outrage to come -- with the charges.
And even then.
I need to do it anonymously.
So those nice ladies behind the counter are gonna get dragged through the muck raking and mud throwing media.
Without even knowing who's accusing them.
-- look I'm not making light of real sexual harassment.
But the allegations against a man who's trying to become president.
Are far and away tame compared to the real life actions of men who have actually -- president.
And whose actions were not fifteen years before they ran but while in office.
And the media wasn't this worked up over a white democratic candidate who not only fathered a child with a staffer mistress while his wife was dying of cancer.
But he paid hush it up using campaign money -- lied about the whole thing.
I'm not too keen on anonymous allegations about things that happened years ago and then just suddenly surface in the most critical stage of an election.
A highly partisan Democrat that I didn't retain -- or 80000 dollar a year state job.
May totally false allegations that I had pressured the state Parole Board to release an inmate.
But it took her six years to decide that all just before I was up for re election.
-- how about the staff member I'd fired for lying and probably stealing.
But -- accused me of misusing state funds.
-- -- was quite the talker of the press in the month before my election but -- some Democrat activist actually filed a lawsuit against me based on her blather -- That -- she had to testify under oath during depositions.
And when confronted with the telling the truth are perjuring herself.
She pleaded the Fifth Amendment so as not to incriminate herself.
The lawsuit against me was dropped and those who -- it had to admit there was not a bitter truth and it.
There's just their curiosity based on reading some news accounts of the disgruntled and dismissed ex employee.
We obviously have real issues in this country like raging unemployment.
For closures for many homeowners small business operators going belly up at a national debt that's destroying our future.
Surely those issues matter a whole lot more than a southern man call an employee sweetie fifteen years ago.
