National Review writer John Derbyshire, a man who's never been shy about his opinions, raises some questions about the Herman Cain sexual harassment story. We'll tackle them one by one.


Is there anyone who thinks sexual harassment is a real thing?

Yes, as seen on a magazine cover all the way back in 1977, actually!

Is there anyone who doesn’t know it’s all a lawyers’ ramp, like “racial discrimination”?

Yes.

You pay a girl a compliment nowadays, she runs off and gets lawyered up. Is this any way to live?

Nope, doesn't sound fun. You should maybe rethink the way you're delivering those compliments, John.
