I'm starting to think that John Edwards' Presidential Campaign is simply a cover for the real candidate - Elizabeth Edwards. First she did the drive-by on Ann Coulter on Hardball and now she's speaking out about Rush Limbaugh. From The Politico...
My classmates went to Vietnam, he did not. He was 4F. He had a medical disability, the same medical disability that probably should have stopped him from spending a lifetime in a radio announcer’s chair; but it is true, isn’t it? If he has an inoperable position that allows him not to serve, presumably it should not allow him to sit for long periods of time the way he does. I think this is a serious enough offense for the people who fund him, who buy ads and allow him to be on the air, need to be asked if this is what they really stand for, do they think it is all right for someone who has never served to denigrate the men and women who have simply because they are expressing an opinion. Frankly, I thought that is what we are fighting for.
Since you opened the dialogue Mrs. Edwards, can you tell us a little bit about your husband's military service? (insert sounds of crickets chirping here)
Slick move by the Edwards' campaign. Toss the little lady who is fighting cancer out there to make the attacks cause anyone that says anything about her is talking smack about a cancer patient.
BTW Snopes has the skinny on the Rush Limbaugh - Vietnam War deferment here.
Don't forget to stop over here and sign the petition in support of Rush Limbaugh.
