Rush slammed after blaming Elizabeth Edwards for affair

Add this to the litany of shocking and offensive things to have emerged from right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh's mouth:

"It just seems to me that [John] Edwards might be attracted to a woman whose mouth did something other than talk."

The popular conservative seemed quite clearly to be blaming Edwards's wife, Elizabeth, who is battling breast cancer, with driving her husband to another woman. Earlier in his nationally syndicated show Tuesday, Limbaugh launched into an extended diatribe on how Elizabeth was "smarter than John Edwards" and implied she was dictating his actions.

"In other words, could it be that she doesn't shut up?" he asked before promising, "Now that's as far as I'm going to go."

It wasn't. And Limbaugh's later effort to blame Elizabeth earned him substantial scorn Wednesday from liberal commentators and Media Matters.

"What better prepubescent dream of genital-waving dominance over all the women in the world, than to blame the intelligence of a woman for her husband's infidelity," MSNBC's Keith Olbermann said on Countdown. "What a pure sentiment to share with the less well recompensed losers who comprise your audience than to dismiss their failures as husbands -- as men, Rush -- on the woman.

"I mean even these days three divorces is a lot," Olbermann continued, referring to Limbaugh's own failed adventures with love. "A $38 million salary and the guy can't keep the same woman. Gotta be the woman's fault right?"

Trolls who have forgotten to take their meds are the funniest...and the most pathetic. But they're always the easiest to snare, especially those that don't know how to spell KUCINICH.
