Wag the Dong

Well well well... continuing in that great Demoratic tradition of believing it is okay to lie about sex, former presidential candidate John Edwards has admitted to an affair with a videographer.
There are some people who stand out even among the polictical class as being so completely in love with themselves that they cannot offer their ample gifts to just one woman. Even if she stands by you and has terminal cancer. This is a great parting gift for his wife.
John Edwards, you're a class act.

I have to admit I felt kind of sorry for him.

-- Until I remembered how he swindled the Insurance Companies out of millions and the premiums that are deducted in our weekly paychecks sky-high as a direct result.

I can forgive him a crime of the heart if his wife can, but not for stealing money he had no right to take.

Hey you heard the joke about "What do you call 10 thousand dead lawyers on the bottom of the ocean?"

"A good START!"!

Of course you heard that one. We all have and its still funny because its true.

I'm shocked and pissed off at John Edwards (as anyone who's read my blog knows). I think he did his family and his supporters a terrible disservice, and nothing would make me happier than to punch him in his stupid selfish face.

He deserves every bit of misery he's suffering right now. I feel terrible for his family and especially his wife. I'm so mad right now that I'm even willing to forgo the obvious comparisons to John McCain's dubious marital scorecard.

I agree that Edwards deserves to be scorned, mocked and tormented for his actions.

I am certain you feel the same way about McCain for cheating on his first wife Carol after she was disfigured in an auto accident.

For the record CT Bob and phony veteran guy, the McCains did not break up for good until 1980 – many years after the accident.

That’s 11 years after the accident.

According to Wikipedia, which is left leaning:

“Carol McCain would later say: "The breakup of our marriage was not caused by my accident or Vietnam or any of those things. I don't know that it might not have happened if John had never been gone. I attribute it more to John turning 40 and wanting to be 25 again than I do to anything else."


What’s more:

“John McCain gave Carol a settlement that included alimony, child support, houses in Virginia and Florida, and lifelong financial support for her ongoing medical treatments resulting from the 1969 automobile accident. John McCain and Hensley were married on May 17, 1980.

Despite the divorce, Carol McCain has remained on good terms with John McCain, and has supported him in all his subsequent political campaigns. She refused to discuss her marriage with an election opponent of McCain's in 1982 who was seeking negative information about him, telling the opponent that "a gentleman never would have called.”
She supports her ex-husband's 2008 presidential campaign, and told The Mail on Sunday in June 2008 that she was not bitter and that:

"He’s a good guy. We are still good friends. He is the best man for president."

End Quote.


She even has his bumper sticker on her car. So sorry gentlemen. The facts just don't back you up on this one.

But then again, when do facts matter to a liberal?
