It’s time to go home, Herman.
For months, you tried to tell us you were actually running for president. You artfully hoodwinked hundreds of campaign staffers and volunteers into helping you push books and speeches. From the looks of things, you spent more time barnstorming and signing autographs in Tennessee and Alabama than you did meeting voters in critical early states like Iowa and New Hampshire.
For anyone who has actually managed a campaign, it was mind-boggling that you refused to hire staff or build an organization in any of the early states. We looked on in utter disbelief as you trampled on your own campaign messages and, when they showed signs of life, you backed up the truck and rolled over them again. Name the issue and you had an answer—answers that often changed within minutes.

At one point, you stumbled and stammered your way to becoming the GOP frontrunner. That would be commendable if not for the success of reality show stars like NeNe Leakes and Evelyn Lozada.. All you’re missing now are a pair of Christian Loubitins and lace-front wig.
But alas, Leakes and Lozada’s futures are brighter than yours. Someday soon, your curtain will close and we can all get back to the serious business of electing or re-electing a president.
I’ve got to be honest. I never thought you could win the nomination. While race might have been a factor, it was your utter and incomprehensible lack of preparation. You just didn’t seem to know anything — not about economic policy, not about foreign affairs. You’ve had a difficult time, at best, understanding the Constitution and the powers granted to the presidency. Forget Libya, there were times when I doubt you understood the implications of the very positions you were taking. Sigh and say what you want. I will never believe that you are actually anti-abortion.
After allegations of sexual harassment surfaced a few weeks ago, you called the four women involved liars and opportunists. And now comes woman number five, Ginger White, a woman who claims she engaged in a 13-year extramarital affair with you. Calling her “destitute” and “desperate”, you’ve denied she was anything more than a “friend” you were “trying to help financially.”
Your attorney was right. There is nothing illegal about trading dozens of phone calls and text messages with Ginger White, some of them at 4 a.m. in the morning. There is nothing illegal about traveling the country with her, staying in posh hotels, or giving her gifts. Nobody will send you to jail for paying her rent.
The alleged infidelity is between you, your wife and your God. It’s time for you to go home and deal with them both.
