Expecting too much from politicians

I was surprised by the amount of anger in my office for the foolishness of John Edwards
misdeeds. I never liked Edwards and always thought he was a ambulance chasing hack at best.

Edwards is still human, despite his monumental lapse in judgment with an airhead. He is not the first, nor will he be the last to fail. His real crime was failing while his wife was battling cancer.

If you are waiting for a human moment from Edwards where he accepts responsibility and understands the anger created by his actions forget it. Few humans have the class and the humanity too make a sincere statement from the heart.

He should have done it out in the open like your hero, "Struttin' with My Chippy" Giuliani. That's how Republicans get away with them. Do it out in the open and then give a big mea culpa like serial adulterer McCheese.

Were is Rudy these days? Back taking kickbacks with Bernie Kerik (R - Felon)?

Well, John Edwards is both Democrat and left-wing, two conditions that are guaranteed indicators for determining the likelihood of a politician to say or do something within the pale of imbecilic behavior.

Perhaps you could get your co-workers to answer what John Edwards will not:

Which of his "two Americas" does his fuck toy come from?

Guiliani's marriage was over and is in no way comparable to Edwards.

Maybe Kerik could get a job dealing drugs with Hugo Chavez or dealing weapons to FARC for Chavez.

Maybe Kerik should blow up things for no reason and get a job in higher ed.Of course he would need to lower his IQ and claim to be a commie.

it's difficult at best for a dhimmiwittedcrat to come clean on the first time around.

perhaps next time?

the bimbette has high hopes that elizabeth will croak and she will become the new "mrs. cheat-on-me-and-die edwards".

did you see where she said mrs. edwards had bad jujus? how cruel.

There is a decided lack of commitment to marriage these days. Especially amonst the chattering classes and their subsidiaries.
For better or for worse,
For richer or for poorer,
In sickness and in health,
Until death do you part...hmmmm, I guess it's just too hard to be a person of integrity.
And integrity is a key component of CHARACTER...
Interestingly enough, President Cleveland, when presented with an illegitimate son, who may or may not have been his, he publicly acknowledged the boy and paid child support voluntarily...a fall from grace is forgivable, all it takes is confession and amendment of life.
I'm waitting to hear ANY from today's politicians...chirp, chirp.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

John Edwards is a slimeball. He blamed fame and fortune for his infidelity.

He's thinking with his little head, not the one on his shoulders.

I've been there, done that...we're all human.

John Edwards is a preening, self-important, hypocritical narcissist. I've know this fact since I first knew anything at all about him. This doesn't surprise me at all.

When most men cheat on their wives, you might be surprised a little, but you would definitely by surprised and sickened when they cheat on a wife who has incurable cancer.

Not Edwards. If anything, his wife's condition makes it even less surprising to find out about his affair.

Elizabeth Edwards has more class than I used to give her credit for having. She has decided to stay with the scumbucket for the good of her children. Personally, not only would I not blame her for dumping the wadwaste, she would be well advised to do so, precisely for "the good of the children", to teach them actions might have dire consequences.

Not of course that I think Edwards would give a damn aside from the further political embarrassment, but at least her children would receive a valuable lesson. You don't fuck over your spouse and get away with it.

Wow. Just think about what a lowdown son-of-a bitch this creep has to be.

I would just like to point out that it was merely four years ago the Democratic Party offered up this man, John Edwards, a man ripe for blackmailing, to be the Vice President, the second most powerful national security position in the US government.

Had enough?

The Merry Widow said...

PT-My late would have worn a permanently imbedded cast iron skillet.
edwards has no class, conscience or integrity. And booting the jerk out of the houe and stripping his bank account and portfolio bare, would have been appropriate...then he would no longer have an EXCUSE to be a playboy!
And if he had the gaul to marry his mistress, he destroys his family! His children would never forgive him. As it is, they are probably disgusted with him!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

from today's NY Post...

I've got a feeling that someone can't wait for a certain cancer patient to kick it...

The Merry Widow said...

FJ-That may have been implied, but not stated. Just so he could get what he wanted!

Merry Widow-

I don't think Edwards had to put out a whole lot of effort to "get what he wanted". This woman is a New Age chippie type, which is a type I know all too well. She is probably convinced that she and Edwards are "soul mates". I don't see how that is possible in their case. How could the two of them mate based on a quality neither possess?

If that sounds a bit harsh, bear in mind this woman complained about Mrs. Edwards to her sister, who then repeated the slur publicly. The only thing surprising about all of this is that I am defending Elizabeth Edwards, a woman I used to not care for at all. Then again I'm not married to her.

As for your husband, a skillet would be an inappropriate response. A tube of super glue only costs a few bucks.
