What will crazy Rush Limbaugh do now? (Incidentally, I by no means am implying the REAL Uncle Fester is an adulterer, even though McCain looks like him. Uncle Fester has higher standards than that.)
Incidentally, it doesn\'t surprise me that adulterer Rudy Guiliani is going to endorse adulterer John McCain. After all, it\'s true to form with the Republican Family Values that overlook, just like with David Vitter and his prostitutes, cheaters in marriages.
But it wasn\'t until 2000 that McCain, possibly emboldened by Clinton\'s survival of his scandals, became the first confessed adulterer to have the nerve to run. Now, just a few years after infidelity was considered a dealbreaker for a presidential candidate, the party that presents itself as the arbiter of virtue may field an unprecedented two-timing trifecta.
McCain was still married and living with his wife in 1979 while, according to The New York Times\' Nicholas Kristof, "aggressively courting a 25-year-old woman who was as beautiful as she was rich." McCain divorced his wife, who had raised their three children while he was imprisoned in Vietnam, then launched his political career with his new wife\'s family money.
Specifically, during John\'s 5 1/2 years in captivity in Vietnam, McCain\'s wife Carol stayed home and faithfully raised their children. Unfortunately, she also had an auto accident that crippled her, making her several inches shorter, heavier and on crutches. When McCain returned home, he rewarded his wife\'s faithfulness by having a series of affairs, and eventually, leaving her for a women 17 years younger than him. His children were so upset they refused to attend the wedding, in 1980.
He apparently married Cindy Hensley in May 1980 just one month after dumping his crippled wife.
So, what the heck! Rudy\'s bimbo as first lady? Nope. John McCain\'s.
