I remember during the Monica Lewinshy affair how the right wingers salivated over the impending demise of the clinton family. “Surely she will divorce him” they drooled waiting for the impending announcement that never came. That’s because Clinton’s marriage was much more solid than his Republican detractors like Rush Limbaugh.
Generally I don’t revel in the misfortune of others – but I have a rule which is what I call the “hypocracy exception” – which in this case means that when Rush cheers at the downfall of others – it’s ok to cheer at his downfall. This is so that an important point is made to warn other of the dark side of self richeousness and moral masturbation.
Some day it will be my turn but for now – let them eat crow!
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh announced Friday that he and his wife, Marta, were divorcing.
The Limbaughs “mutually decided to end their marriage of 10 years” and have “separated pending an amicable resolution,” according to a statement released by Limbaugh’s publicist.
The couple shared a $24 million oceanfront mansion in nearby Palm Beach, from where Limbaugh often broadcast his daily three-hour show.
Spokesman Tony Knight said the matter was personal and declined further comment.
It was the third marriage for both Limbaugh, 53, and his 44-year-old wife, who were wed May 27, 1994 at the Virginia home of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Thomas officiated the ceremony.
