John Edwards and his Tale of Tail


Well, it turns out that John Edwards lied about dipping his noodle in some forbidden sauce. The National Enquirer has been on this story for at least a year, and recently reported that his seed was responsible for the baby in the photo above.

I was pretty fond of the "new" John Edwards that ran for president in 2008. I very well may have voted for him if he had not dropped out of the race by the time the votes were being cast in California. However, since he is now admitting that this all took place back in 2006, I have to wonder what, if anything, he was thinking? What made him think this would not come out? Imagine if this was going on while he was the Democratic nominee? It would be almost as scandalous as Obama being black and wanting to blow up government buildings because of his middle name, as Hannity suggests-- or wanting to set up death camps for Jews and Gypsies, as Joe Lieberman exclaims-- or that he wants to declare war on rural America by teaching evolution and literacy, as Rush Big Pants portrays.

But I digress, like Edwards has. I can't believe that a man who ran as a strong family man through some of the most trying of circumstances would have tried to pull this off. I am very glad he is not the nominee right now, and that Obama never selected him to be his V.P. And to make matters worse, that glossy little bastard wants to speak at the party's convention. To be safe, the Dem should banish him and seal the borders of Colorado as to prevent anyone with a southern accent from entering the state during the convention, or else suffer the consequences.

Please allow me to point out that being faithful to ones spouse has no direct barring on one's ability to govern-- Kennedy and Clinton both effectively demonstrated that. However, it does eat into ones political capital, whether it should or shouldn't, and certainly would be problematic in our nations national struggle against the disease known as McCainology.

In sum, him running with this kind of baggage speaks volumes about the enormity of his ego and the minute of concern he holds for his party or country.

Hey John, see you at the Spearmint Rhino, sucka...

Vitter is gonna freak out! I wonder if he met her in an airport bathroom. With all the sex scandals the right has had in the last 2 years you'd think they'd leave this alone. I don't see that happening though. Get ready for a ton of pot calling kettle black people!

Bradda- I couldn't agree more...

Interesting point of view, sal. Well said, but I truly don't know why Edwards is being so reviled when they all do it and always have. Then again, I didn't care about Clinton/Lewinsky either.

I like digby's take on it...
