Speaking of bimbo eruptions ...

No, I'm not calling Arizona state Sen. Lori Klein -- Herman Cain’s Arizona state chairman -- a bimbo, even if she sounds like one. Until proven otherwise, I presume she is bright, virtuous and rational. Defending her hero on both CBS and Fox News, Klein said she has known Mr. Cain for 12 years and he’s "never been anything but a gentlemen – and I am not an unattractive woman." Um, no comment on that last point. Then, hurtling over the cliff, Klein implied that politics is a rough business and no place for wide-eyed naifs. But I don't wish to put words into her mouth. Klein elucidated the point this way: Voters too often expect "a virgin to do a hooker’s job." Ergo, as Salon's Alex Pareene writes, Cain is "a hooker with a heart of gold" and has "the constitution to resist harassing or assaulting Lori Klein, a noted attractive woman!"
