Rush Limbaugh Defends Herman Cain: He Represents Everything the Media Says ‘Does Not Exist’

(By Jonathon M. Seidl, The Blaze) - On radio Monday, Rush Limbaugh came to the defense of 2012 GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain after he was mocked recently by comedian Jon Stewart. The Comedy Central host used a degrading voice to mock Cain‘s lighthearted proposal that bills shouldn’t be longer than three pages, even going as far as to say Cain doesn’t like to read.

According to Rush, Cain represents everything the media says “does not exist.” Not only is he black conservative, but he’s articulate and smart. And while the media and the left wanted to praise the way Obama talks, Rush said, they’d rather make fun of Cain:

“You identify yourself as a black conservative and you may as well be admitting that you’re a whore, or a prostitute, an Uncle Tom, you’ve been bought off, whatever, you’re not real. It’s not possible for a black person to be conservative. The way the media and the left look a this country, a black person who is conservative is a black person who would agree with the whole notion of slavery and would want to be a slave owner. That’s how bad it is. That is how devoid and distanced from reality that they are.”
