Glenn Beck Calls John Edwards 'Dirt Bag'

Talk show host Glenn Beck declares that former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards is a “dirt bag” for cheating on his cancer-stricken wife.

Edwards admitted on Friday that he had had an affair with a woman who produced videos as he prepared to launch his campaign.

Acknowledging a sex scandal he had dismissed as "tabloid trash" only last month, Edwards said he had told his wife Elizabeth and family long ago, but "I had hoped that it would never become public."

He also said “you can’t beat up on me any more than I’ve already beaten up on myself.”

Beck took up the challenge, however, asking listeners to take part in the “John Edwards Challenge.”

According to his Web site, it’s a “competition where listeners call in and just rip the cheating dirt bag a new one.”

Beck said on Monday’s show that he thinks “you cross the line” when you have an adulterous affair and your wife is battling cancer.

“You’re running for president and you have your wife go out and do campaign speeches for you. I think you cross the line into eternal damnation.”

Edwards has denied fathering a daughter born to the woman with whom he had the affair.
