As if We Need any More Reasons to Turn off Rush Limbaugh
Okay, that’s it. If it’s not one disgusting headline after another in the game of partisan “party politics” it is now unequivocally fair to say that after being exposed to Limbaugh’s misogynistic exploitation of Elizabeth Edwards’ misfortune over her husband’s affair by targeting the former presidential candidate’s wife with sleaze, Rush Limbaugh is living proof that there is no depth to the bowels of Hades and the road that leads to it.
Although I withdrew my support for John Edwards after he took the pledge to sell out white collar jobs, I was initially an ardent Edwards supporter and donor and, am in particular, impressed with his lovely wife, Elizabeth for her intelligence, stature, and successful legal career, professionalism and grace under fire as a loving wife and mother facing an incurable cancer sentence and a heartbreaking marital affair -- publicly, no less.
For anyone who has been diagnosed with a deadly form of cancer believe me, after feeling like you have just been punched in the stomach and will no longer breath, you do – only never in the same way again, as each new day is a gift to hold close, as dear as every single person in your life, as now you know that nothing and nobody on this earth is perfect, after all. To live a life of integrity and love, to give back to this world just a little more kindness, patience, and forgiveness than we came here with is to live a life of incredible strength.
Why is it that nitwit jerks (of all partisan stripes) take every opportunity to confuse kindness with weakness?
LWOH has chosen not to report on the Edwards’ affair in part, due to disappointment in John Edwards on how he ran his campaign platform choices but mostly out of respect for his lovely wife and their family. It is nobody else’s business, including my own, to judge, much less care about anyone else’s personal life. Unless of course, you are like Larry Craig and insist on being heterosexual but break the law by soliciting gay sex in the MSP mensroom which was later denied then admitted, sort of, even when you’re all for anti-gay legislation.
Poem (dedicated to Elizabeth Edwards)
-by Piet Hein-
Problems worthy of attack
Prove thier worth by hitting back.
Put up in a place where it's easy to see
The cryptic admonishment
When you feel how depressingly
Slowly you climb,
It's well to remember that
Things Take Time.
Thou knowest not
Is in a sense
Our choicest plans have fallen through
Our airiest castles tumbled over,
Because of lines we neatly drew
And later neatly stumbled over.
Living is a thing you do
Now or never -- which do you?
He that lets the small things bind him
Leaves the great undone behind him.
To be brave is to behave
Bravely when your heart is faint.
So you can be really brave
Only when you really ain't.
A lifetime is more than sufficiently long
For people to get what there is of it wrong.
Happy Friday, Loserettes!
