Rush Limbaugh continued his rhetorical attacks Thursday, against the women who have accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment — with some more good old-fashioned misogyny.
Limbaugh commented on the effort by accuser Karen Kraushaar, to put together a joint press conference of the women involved.
“I did ask yesterday, what’s the big deal with the panel here?” Limbaugh said. “Do they want to synchronize their menstrual periods? Why appear together? What, does it give added weight?”
Previously, Limbaugh has mocked accuser Sharon Bialek, pronouncing her name as “Buy-A-Lick,” and making a slurping sound that seemed to be an imitation of oral sex.
Also, on Tuesday he made a set of remarks defending Cain, and attacking the women, in ways that might make some sense if a person believed the accusations to be true, and disapproved of attacking Cain over them:
“Political correctness, which is censorship, has now spread to behavior — not just speech. It’s spread to behavior.
“And sexual harassment now is a political weapon, and it’s anything anybody wants it to be. You don’t need a specific allegation. All you need is the appearance of impropriety, and that’s where this gets dicey, because with this roaring liberalism through our culture, what appears to be inappropriate, in the old days was nothing!”
“I tell you, you women, why don’t you just make it official, put on some burqas?” he concluded. “And I’ll guaran-damn-tee you nobody’ll touch you. You put on a burqa, and everybody’ll leave you alone, if that’s what you want.”
