Talk Back: Are the Cain allegations 'high-tech lynching' or fair game?

From CNN's Carol Costello:

Herman Cain is in trouble, and his troubled waters could get deeper. One of the two women who accused Cain of sexual harassment back in the nineties now wants to tell her side of the story.

However, Cain's supporters already have a battle plan that the presidential hopeful seems to be embracing. Ann Coulter called the criticism of Cain a "high-tech lynching," remarking that "there's nothing liberals fear more than a black conservative."

In an interview with Fox News yesterday, Cain himself said that racism is involved in why he has been hit so hard by the sexual harassment charge. This is surprising, considering that he told  Candy Crowley that he "doesn't believe that racism in this country holds anybody back in a big way" on CNN's State of the Union.

    No, this is not a high-tech "lynching"; it is a high-tech ditching. This story is nothing but a distraction. The irony is that I don't think Cain really wants to be president, and I don't think Cain's party wants him to be their nominee. It is a moot point.
