Rush Limbaugh continuesto denounce what he describes as the Herman Cain “witch hunt” and said the media are angry that the conservative presidential candidate hasn’t dropped out of the run for the nomination.
“The media today is mad that he’s still in there, and that he’s still smiling,” Limbaugh said on his radio show today. “They’re mad that he’s still a viable candidate. And they are really ticked at me and others who are defending Herman Cain.”
Cain explained his case Monday night to Greta Van Susteren on Fox News, where he said one of the false accusations could have occurred when he told a female co-worker she was about the same height as his wife. He told Van Susteren he held his hand up to his chin to illustrate his comment.
“If that’s indeed the way this went down, men in the workplace had better start wearing straitjackets,” Limbaugh said.
The media can “make or destroy” politicians — and their careers — and reporters consider taking out a public figure “resume enhancement,” Limbaugh said.
“We are not going to stand by idly and watch you try to take out another one of our own,” he said. “You note the treatment [former New Jersey Gov.] Jon Corzine’s getting. John Corzine — Enron times 10. It’s malfeasance on a near record level.”
Corzine is a Democrat whose brokerage firm has come under fire from regulators for failing to protect its investors’ money, and hundreds of millions of dollars reportedly are unaccounted for.
“Do you know what the Democrats are saying today?” Limbaugh said. “How could a guy so smart make such a big mistake? Now, you change his name to [Enron founder] Ken Lay, and they’re going to drive him to commit suicide.”
