Why Herman Cain Had to Take His Pizza, and Go Home

If a sitting U.S. president can be asked or demanded to yield two birth certificates, Herman Cain should have expected to be asked to explain the possible recklessness of his libido and misuse of his authority, and that wouldn’t change whether it was Obama-loving Democrats behind it or disgruntled Rick Perry supporters blowing the whistle.
