RUSH: Folks… Folks, get this. The Washington Post story that I have been citing liberally here for the last ten to 15 minutes? There are two versions of that story. There is a story that appeared online yesterday and a second version where something has been omitted. I have here what has been omitted near the end of the story as it ran yesterday on the Washington Post website. Are you ready? (shuffling paper) Ahem. Ahem. This has been deleted: “Because the case is more than a dozen years old, Bennett,” the woman’s lawyer, “said he no longer has the file nor does he have the confidentiality agreement. He said that he had not even remembered the name of the Association official who his client had accused. He said he doesn’t remember going to the Association offices. He thinks the matter might have been handled over fax and telephone quite expeditiously.”
It was that insignificant! That has since been deleted from the Washington Post story that is now, at present, running. Let me read it to you one more time. “Because the case is more than a dozen years old,” that would be 12 for those of you in Rio Linda, Bennett, Joel Bennett, “the woman’s lawyer said he no longer has the file,” doesn’t have the case file, he doesn’t have “the confidentiality agreement. He said that he doesn’t even remember the name of the Association official who his client accused,” meaning he didn’t even remember it was Herman Cain! “He said he doesn’t remember going to the Association offices ever to handle this matter. He thinks the matter might have been handled over fax and phone quite expeditiously,” meaning rat-tat-tat, couple faxes, couple phone calls.
Yep, 35 grand? Fine. We’re done here. See ya — and it’s 12 years old and couldn’t even remember that it was about Herman Cain. And doesn’t have the confidentiality agreement, and the Washington Post has stricken that from their only version of the story. This was on their online version of the story yesterday. Not there now. But Diana Schneider, editrix of the Limbaugh Letter saved the cache file of it (c-a-c-h-e, for those of you in Rio Linda) so that we have it in perpetuity; and this lawyer is running around making it sound like this woman’s got the goods. “Oh, yeah, she can’t wait to talk! She’s gonna nail Herman Cain! It’s not gonna be pretty. We can’t wait! It’ll be big bucks! Wait ’til you hear it!”
Yesterday, he didn’t even know who this was about.
