The media are heading into damage control over the Herman Cain sexual harassment allegations  in light of a recent poll that shows 70 percent of Republicans believe the claims are immaterial to the presidential candidate’s campaign, Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show Friday.
“Think of all the news stories there have been . . . and after five days, there has yet to be a report what he did,” Limbaugh said.
Limbaugh called the story an “empty scandal” and paraphrased Wesley Pruden, editor emeritus of The Washington Times, saying, “If somebody like the Politico reporters would have brought this story to him, he would have thrown them down the steps, and if they survived that, he would have fired them.”

A recent Washington Post/ABC News poll revealed 7 out of 10 Republicans don’t think the accusations that Cain made inappropriate comments and gestures to women in the 1990s will have any effect on his electability.

“Every Republican nominee . . . is so superior to Barack Obama, it’s laughable,” Limbaugh said. “And the Democrats know that. Politico, you failed — you attempted, along with others in the mainstream media, to take the guy out, and you failed.”
