During CNBC’s GOP debate tonight, Herman Cain, referring to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s service as Speaker of the House in the previous Congress, said that a House Republican health care proposal effectively died in that session “because Princess Nancy sent it to committee.” He did not mean it in a nice way.

Earlier, Cain dismissed the multiple sexual-harassment charges against him, saying  “The American people deserve better than someone getting tried in the court of public opinion based on unfounded accusations.”
