Rush Limbaugh: John Edwards Affair is Elizabeth's Fault

by at . Comments

It takes a pretty huge jackass to attempt to turn John Edwards into the victim after sleeping with Rielle Hunter and then covering it up.

Not to worry, though: Rush Limbaugh is up to the task.

On the August 12 broadcast of his national radio show, Rush Limbaugh said of former Sen. John Edwards' extramarital affair:

"I've got a theory about the motivations ... We know - we've been told that Elizabeth Edwards is smarter than John Edwards... 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? Could it have been her decision to keep going with the campaign? In other words, could it be that she doesn't shut up? That's as far as I'm going to go."

But it wasn't as far as he went.

Rush Limbaugh later added, "It just seems to me that John Edwards might be attracted to a woman whose mouth did something other than talk."

In case it wasn't clear what he meant, Limbaugh elaborated 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."

Wow.

To sum up, the blowhard (who's thrice divorced, BT-dubs) believes that if Elizabeth Edwards channeled her inner Antonella Barba more often, John would never have strayed into the arms of Rielle Hunter. It's an interesting theory.

We could go on for pages about this, but instead, we'll turn it over to MSNBC's Keith Olbermann. Follow the jump for his take on Rush ...

I am sorry but I have never heard him say hate, he comments on others and apparently you don't actually listen to him or you would not say that. He calls other black leaders that say they want peace but keep calling others race haters. I respected Martin Luther King and he would be appalled at how the so called black leadership is keeping race up front when most of us want to have everyone judged by their knowledge not their skin color or gender or sexual orientation. May before someone starts saying something about someone else or repeating info they heard from someone, You all should actually look it up. You wouldn't want anyone coming back and saying because of something you said that you didn't say and you got mad.

I almost 100% sure that Elizabeth knew that John was having an affair and thought that would make everyone look sympathetic to her being her cancer. My mother would not have(she died from cancer in 84) went along with her husband and would have divorced him. I do feel for her with cancer but it seems there were problems along time before Ms Hunter came along. Elizabeth had to have known who she married and that most politicians are no good rotten scumb. I personally don't get off where you can judge Rush how many times have you been married or how many affairs have you had? Keith O is nothing but a hate monger and you all want tolerance. Why don't we see it coming from you guys.

I UNDERSTAND THAT RUSH LIMBAUGH'S GRANDMOTHER WAS MULATTO. THAT IS WHY HE HATES BLACK PEOPLE SO MUCH. HER MARRIED THREE TIMES AND NEVER HAD CHILDREN, BECAUSE HER THOUGHT THEY MAY LOOK MORE BLACK. ANOTHER J EDGAR HOOVER, A MAN WHO HATE WHERE HE CAME FROM, RUSH LIMBAUGH IS 1/4 BLACK. SO WHEN HE STARTS PUTTING MINORITIES DOWN, HE IS PUTTING HIMSELF DOWN IDIOT.

John Edwards talked about Dad's mill,
While sleeping with a chick off the pill,
He lied and fibbed to the MS press,
And, awoke early to preen and dress. His wife, Elizabeth, knew the lie in 2006,
But supported John in Iowa while sick,
They stole Hillary's honest votes daily,
And laughed on cue, and hiding Rielle. Now John's betrayal is common news,
And Fred Baron has money to lose,
Rielle, now nursing, has jetted away,
Even ABC and CNN have joined the fray! John's affair has hurt his poor kids,
More than Clinton's cigars ever did,
A sordid tale that some call a crock,
The only winner, a loser named Barack!

Rush deserves pity more than scorn.hes had three wives and is not able to maintain relationships.if people would mail him that natural male enhancement to over come the effects of oxycontin maybe he would improve

of course Rush is a pig, that is why he is on his third marraige. His wife should do some talking when he gets home
But the real pig is John Edwards. How could he cheat on his wife, and with her battling cancer. All you need is a cheating husband on top of knowing you are dying. What a jerk. Then to top it off, he is lying his ass off. Of course that is going to be his kid. Why else would he be paying her off? And why else would she not want a paternity test to show everyone it is not his? And for him to say it is less of an affair, because he never "loved her". What a loser. I always knew there was something wrong with his phony appearance and attitude. A super rich lawyer, pretending to be for the people. Give me a break, he is all about John. And this affair proves it. Especially with all the lying and covering up he is still doing.
Shame shame shame

John Edwards Quotes

I am and have been willing to take any test necessary to establish the fact that I am not the father of any baby, and I am truly hopeful that a test will be done so this fact can be definitively established.

John Edwards

In 2006, I made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs.
