Where's the Outrage?

Rush Limbaugh today:    

"We know -- we've been told that Elizabeth Edwards is smarter than John Edwards. That's part of the puff pieces on them that we've seen. Ergo, if Elizabeth Edwards is smarter than John Edwards, is it likely that she thinks she knows better than he does what his speeches ought to contain and what kind of things he ought to be doing strategy-wise in the campaign? If she is smarter than he is, could it have been her decision to keep going with the campaign? In other words, could it be that she doesn't shut up? Now, that's as far as I'm going to go....

   It just seems to me that Edwards might be attracted to a woman whose mouth did something other than talk." Limbaugh went on to say in a subsequent segment: "my theory that I just explained to you about why -- you know, what could have John Edwards' motivations been to have the affair with Rielle Hunter, given his wife is smarter than he is and probably nagging him a lot about doing this, and he found somebody that did something with her mouth other than talk."

Im surprised there wasnt a diary about this on the reclist.

Rush Limbaugh, making John Edwards, the victim... because he had a smart wife, and Rush suspects that's why he cheated...

A line needs to be drawn. This guy must be fired. This is just as bad as Imus, and possibly even worse.

Re: Where's the Outrage?

So this is the first time you've listened to Rush?

Give him all the outrage you want, he'll be happier than a pig in...

Sorry, i didnt realize

that i did that. This diary was just a quick rant. I was hearing PUMAs on the radio earlier today and i was enraged that they were talking crap about Democrats. I've taken that portion out.

Re: Where's the Outrage?

Dude, your 48 hrs late.  This issue has already burned itself out.

You need to reset your watch.

Water is wet

Edwards is still not a victim, in fact he is still a scumbag and getting worse by the day.  It was a good story for KO to cover, just how he framed it was dumb.

Re: Where's the Outrage?

Rush limbaugh is a big fat drug addict who can't keep a wife.

He should be serving time for drug addiction, not getting fat on radio earnings.

Re: Where's the Outrage?

Elizabeth is another media darling who obviously knew that this could have come out at any time and destroyed her husband's chances.
