Sharon Bialek mocked by Rush Limbaugh: Telling

Want proof that Sharon Bialek put forth a convincing presentation today in a Manhattan press conference? Want proof that her allegation that Herman Cain tried to extract sexual favors in return for assisting Bialek’s job search is going to be hard to puncture? Want proof that efforts to instantly tar Bialek aren’t getting too far?

Well, behold the fact that Rush Limbaugh has taken to mocking Bialek for the pronunciation of her last name. His riff on the subject is obscene in a way that would have delighted my friends in seventh-grade homeroom.
