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 think women should boycott him, I have never heard the rush show, but when you blame a dedicated wife of 30 years for Edwards misdeeds, you are still doing drugs or just plain ignorant! Three ex-wives and you have something to say that denigrates all women. SHUT UP! Why is this idiot allowed to speak? This is worse than Imus.

Rush is such a pig!! It's because of men like him that so many of us women feel guilty for our men being SELFISH, LYING, CHEATING JACKASSES!! Elizabeth deserves so much better than John, and all the crap in the media. She's a strong respectable woman...quit blaming her and show her the respect she deserves!!

How low can you go. His wife should be getting more respect from the public, and she should put his sad behind out. Why does she need more problems, and health wish she cannot take it. I willPray for her, and their children. Damn him, he's a dog.

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.

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.
