Washington--The Republican Party can accept rich black men, but they can't accept cheating rich black men that sleep with white women.
"I don't believe Republicans are that transparent, but I do think they still don't like the idea of a black man with a white woman when it comes to national politics." Ann Coulter told Sean Hannity on his radio show.
The Republican Party was excited to have a black man leading in the polls, but once they found out that black man liked liked white women, too, it was all down hill for Herman Cain.
Newt Gingrich breathed a sigh of relief when Herman Cain's poll numbers started to fall because that meant his cheating ways would be old news to Herman Cain's revelations of infidelity.
The former Speaker of the House cheated on two wives and bought forgiveness from the Roman Catholic Church by giving them a small fortune to look the other way when it came to his previous divorces. Sure, he can receive mass, something poor, divorced Catholics can't do, but that isn't viewed as a double-standard by a Church that needs money. The double-standard does allow Gingrich to tout his faith, though.
Is the fact Newt Gingrich is white and cheated on two wives an important factor in the fact he is doing so well in the polls, or is it plain old racism that allows a white man to cheat on two wives and still be considered a good candidate for president? Newt Gingrich just considers it good luck.
