Kathy Shaidle is a blogging pioneer whose FiveFeetOfFury.com is now in its 12th year. Her most recent book – "The Tyranny of Nice: How Canada Crushes Freedom in the Name of Human Rights, and Why It Matters to Americans" – features an introduction by Rush Limbaugh guest host Mark Steyn.More ↓Less ↑
After Herman Cain’s accuser Sharon Bialek’s press conference with her new lawyer Gloria Allred, Michael Savage declared: “I’ve watched a lot of things in my life and I’ve never seen anything like what they’re doing to Herman Cain.”
Savage continued: “Is it possible that Cain’s accuser came on to him, and he rejected her because he’s a decent man? Hell hath no fury like a homely woman scorned. She’s waited 12 years to get even. Why should you believe her?”:
At his website, Savage listed all the facts that undermine Bialek’s story, pointing out, among other things, that she was seen hugging Cain at a tea-party meeting just last month.
The left’s criticism of Rush Limbaugh gets pretty desperate sometimes. This week, he was scolded simply for mispronouncing the last name of Herman Cain’s accuser.
Limbaugh replied that the accuser’s attorney, Gloria Allred, pronounced it exactly the same way, and so did other media figures – none of whom is being singled out for criticism (FREE audio).
“We are a nation in decline,” Rush intoned later in the week, adding that the only way to reverse the decline was to elect a truly conservative Republican president.
Gloria Allred herself debated her client’s sexual misconduct allegations with Hannity and defense attorney Mercedes Colwin. Hannity challenged Allred’s decision to take on some clients and not others – decisions that seem to be motivated by party politics (FREE audio).
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., called into the radio show with a scoop: Democrats were “walking away” from the super committee negotiations, destroying any chance of making a bipartisan deal on the budget (FREE audio).
At last weekend’s “Defending the Dream” conference hosted by Americans for Prosperity, Mark Levin gave a stirring keynote speech that left delegates cheering (FREE audio).
Levin expressed doubts about whether or not Herman Cain accuser Sharon Bialek’s story was believable. Levin played audio of veteran journalist Bill Kurtis saying ominously, “There’s more to this story,” after Kurtis spoke to some of his colleagues in Bialek’s home town, Chicago.
As Cain accuser Sharon Bialek’s background became public, Ingraham raised questions about the woman’s credibility.
Donald Trump came on to explain why Obama is no friend of Israel, and why he thinks Newt Gingrich is a viable candidate for conservatives to rally behind now that other candidates are faltering (FREE audio).
Laura raised that prospect with Ann Coulter, who disagreed that Newt Gingrich would be a good choice. Coulter told Ingraham she thought Mitt Romney was destined to be the nominee (FREE audio).
Glenn Beck’s long stint as a “morning zoo” radio host was evident when he and his on-air crew replayed Bialek and Allred’s press conference and had some hearty laughs at their expense (FREE webcam).
And now, from the left side of the dial …
“Has Arianna Huffington partly wandered off of the ‘progressive’ reservation?”
That’s what Brian Maloney of Radio Equalizer is wondering, after Huffington bashed her media colleagues for obsessively covering the Herman Cain “scandal.” She compared the coverage to that devoted to the “Balloon Boy” hoax that swept the nation last year (FREE audio).
Unfortunately, Huffington’s brush with common sense didn’t last long, as she went on to declare that children “have a right to a job after they graduate from college.” Her flirtation with normalcy was fun while it lasted.
