Edwards' Neighbor On Blog Talk Radio

Yesterday, Elizabeth Edwards made headlines by declaring that she would treat her "rabid Republican" in an uncivil manner, despite never having met the man. Tonight, you can do what Elizabeth Edwards refuses to do -- meet her neighbor. Eric Dondero will have John Montgomery on his Blog Talk Radio show tonight:

You may have caught this story yesterday. It made AP nationally. Seems Dem Presidential Candidate John Edwards and his wife Elizabeth have a slight little problem. They hate their neighbor. He's a gun-toting, property rights advocating, root 'n tootin' libertarian Republican. My Co-Host Andre Traversa called him up last night. And this guy is a hoot! He's country to the core. John Montgomery will be on our show tonight "Libertarian Politics Live" to discuss his "slight little problem" with the Edwards.

Be sure to tune in at 9:30 pm CT tonight!

I think people need to think about how Mrs. Edwards's husband would treat people he doesn't like if he becomes President.

I've always had the sense that Edwards was a dangerous demagogue, and Mrs. Edward's nasty, fascist-minded outburst merely strengthens that conviction.

The word "hypocrite" was coined by the language in anticipation of the modern Stalinists. For some odd reason common usage still insists on describing them as "liberal".

For a woman whose shyster fop of a husband made his fortune bilking people out of money, Mrs. Edwards sure sounds like she thinks herself the bees knees.

I'm sure that she is a nice woman who doesn't beat her servants too often.

From the news reports, it sounded like this woman was on the brink of death, so it's good to hear she's back on her feet and looking down on her neighbors.

She'll be snubbing her nose at the little people in no time.

Ahh Liberals, you have to love them when they show how much they really love the "little people" they say they so want to lead.
Does anyone doubt the Edwards' position on gun control should Edwards be elected President?

What is particularly useful in all this is how it reveals how far off the DNC script the Associated Press has wandered by highlighting Elizabeth's paranoia while pretending in the Internet Age that the neighbor she bad-mouthed could be kept silent!

I'm glad Mr. Montgomery will have opportunity to counter the contrived AP smear of him.

A similar Old Media blunder occurred when the SwiftBoat veterans' side of the story was blacklisted by the Liberal press yet the truth got out anyway. Or SanFran Nan's blunder by pretending to be Olmert's "I never said that!" messenger to everyone's favorite Al Quaeda / Hamas / Hezbollah cheerleader named Assad.

No doubt theology flunkie / enviro-cult leader Al Gore will forever regret the day he invented the Internet. Almost as much as that day he raked in a few hundred grand from monks who'd taken an oath of poverty where he had to overload his bladder with iced tea to avoid testifying about it.

It truly saddens me that people such as NoDonkey feel the need to denigrate John Edwards.

This is mainly due to the fact that there are no "journalists" denigrating John Edwards, so it falls to some anonymous schmuck to point out his pathetic foibles. As I mentioned above, it saddens me.

Yeah. Especially when all we have to do is let the Breck Boy get close to a microphone, and he'll denigrate himself to a far greater degree than any of us can possibly imagine.

As far as his wife is concerned, her statement makes her out to be just another upper-class limousine liberal b*tch.

By their own words they are undone.

The Edwards' tactic, I'm sure, is to lure their rabid neighbor close enough to the house that John can sue him into submission.

In 2005, I listened to a number of podcasts John and Elizabeth put together. They would do the good-cop, bad-cop bit, where John would be folksy, talking about how the microphone was sitting on their child's blanket, and Elizabeth would talk about how Republicans stole the 2004 election by suppressing votes in Ohio. So this is not a particular surprise to me.

"It truly saddens me that people such as NoDonkey feel the need to denigrate John Edwards."

You're right, he's done so much for us all:
- Bilked hospitals and insurance companies by bringing phony wrongful death suits
- Employed 1,000s of "little people" to construct his 28,000 sq. ft. mansion
- Lied about our President and Vice President during his failed 2004 run through today
- Attempts to divide America through class warfare
- Had his little Saint of a Wife make nasty, ignorant remarks about a neighbor for not being as filthy rich as the Shyster Fop Family

"This is mainly due to the fact that there are no "journalists" denigrating John Edwards, so it falls to some anonymous schmuck to point out his pathetic foibles."

I like that, "anonymous schmuck", jkmack (BTW, is that your full name?) I should use that handle, but then, how would all my friends on these message boards find my brilliant posts?

I never want Edwards to be president. However, this issue is more of well to-do city folks moving to the country but instead of leaving the city mentality behind they bring it with them issue.

I had some land in Texas, that we lived on for as long as I could remember. The retiring babyboomers started moving into the area to get away from the city. The next thing us 'good-ole-boys' knew they started organising to be annexed by the near bye town which they then ran to be the poloticians of.

We grew up hunting and just target shooting for fun. That was one of the first things to be outlawed. Then we couldn't build a new shed or barn without these new peoples permission. I ended up moving to get away from the people who moved there to get away from the city.

I agree SkyWatch. But I can also believe that she has a problem with now being rich and not wanting to associate with those she “left behind”. The snobbishness of the newly rich seems to exceed that of the inherited rich at times. As to SkyWatch’s point that they brought the city ideas to the rural life, I have seen that up close, argued this point and lost. People flee the city to get away from the crime, noise, and wanting the good life for their children and then demand the city services. They and their children want shopping, the Y, boys clubs, etc because they are now bored with life. What they want attracts just what they fled from. We never had robberies here and car doors and homes were unlocked, but now that we have the quick stop type markets, mega gas stations, and better and more roads there have been numerous armed robberies and an influx of drug trafficking in our once off beat rural area. A neighbor some miles away complains when I fire my rifle; the sound carries through the hollow and she is afraid of guns and wants them banned. She should return to the city where it is peaceful and quiet, me thinks.

This is a bad precedent. So now we get to look forward to every candidate of both parties have a neighbor paraded to the mic to score points that have nothing to do with real issues. Pathetic, but in this day and age, not unexpected.

I saw the same thing in my last town Skywatch. The city folks moved to the country to "get away from the city" and then proceeded to make the country just like the city they left. They shut down the local trap & skeet club because it was too "dangerous & loud." They demanded street lights on rural roads because the dark was too dangerous. They then demanded paving & sewers to make the roads better. Don't forget more bus stops so little Johnny/Susie don't have to walk too far. Oh, and throw in more grocers, WalMarts, gas stations, etc., just to be more convenient. Hey guess what, traffic has increased so we need to pave over that old forest/field/swamp/whatever so improve things....pretty soon there isn't much "country" left in the country and taxes are through the roof to pay for all the improvements.

I think Edwards' neighbor is smart putting his land up for sale - battling these folks is a losing proposition in the long run.

Mrs. Edwards showed no class, empathy, or political savvy in making her comments. This will not endear them to anyone outside their base.

The Ewards' neighbor's name is Monty Johnson!
