The lunch occurred before the rumors about sexual harassment arose, but we'd already heard his flip-flopping over abortion and gay marriage. Now it turns out that even pizza and the men who eat it are not exempt from his gender bias:
Chris Heath: What can you tell about a man by the type of pizza that he likes?
Herman Cain: [repeats the question aloud, then pauses for a long moment] The more toppings a man has on his pizza, I believe the more manly he is.
Chris Heath: Why is that?
Herman Cain: Because the more manly man is not afraid of abundance. [laughs]
Devin Gordon: Is that purely a meat question?
Herman Cain: A manly man don't want it piled high with vegetables! He would call that a sissy pizza.
It's certainly not his worst remark, but, as Mary Elizabeth Williams of Salon opines, it's nonetheless exemplary of his Tourette's-like blathering.
