Rush Limbaugh Condemns Republican Critics Of Herman Cain (AUDIO)

Rush Limbaugh sent a clear statement to Republican critics of Herman Cain on his radio show Thursday: "shame on you."

Limbaugh, who has been an extremely staunch Cain defender, was referring to Republicans who, according to Limbaugh, "piled on Herman Cain when nobody knew the facts" about the sexual harassment allegations filed against the GOP candidate in the 1990s.

While Limbaugh pointed out that details surrounding the case remain unclear, he still harshly criticized Republicans who, in his words, "treated Herman Cain as though he was guilty."

Limbaugh attributed this reaction to Cain's "unpracticed response to vague suggestions of illegal or immoral or unethical behavior."

He referred to these unnamed Republican critics as caving "just to look good to the mainstream media" to avoid being associated with "rag tag conservatism."
