Gloria Cain Speaks

Gloria Cain remains confident that her husband did not sexually harass any women. From her interview with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren last night:

VAN SUSTEREN: Is there any chance — and I got to ask you the question — you know, women always think that their husbands — I mean, the very public thing with the wives of many years of whom they, you know, love and have a family, that there’s another little side of them off to the side what — where they have some extracurricular activity?

GLORIA CAIN: No, because his conscience would bother him. His conscience would bother him, and he couldn’t look me straight in the eye. And I can usually tell if there’s — is there something wrong? It’s, like, Well, I was supposed to go such-and-such a place, or whatever. His conscience bothers him to the point where he would say something to me.

So yes, I know the type of women that you’re thinking about, that the little woman at home is the last to know. But I never see myself as being the little woman at home. And I’ve always said when I’ve seen stories like that, I will not be one of those people who will stand up on stage with a smile and knowing that you were wrong. I’m not going to do that.

Kill Chic

We live in a society in which gratuitous violence is the trademark of video games, movies, and popular music. Kill this, shoot that in repugnant detail becomes a race to the visual and spoken bottom.
