A Baby Daddy For Both Americas

I stole that title from Ann Coulter. I admit, I thought she was funny in this one narrow instance.

Well played, John Edwards. Well played.

I leave the last word to Bob Shrum, political consultant for John Kerry's 2004 Presidential Bid:

"Kerry talked with several potential [VP] picks, including Gephardt and Edwards. He was comfortable after his conversations with Gephardt, but even queasier about Edwards after they met. Edwards had told Kerry he was going to share a story with him that he'd never told anyone else—that after his son Wade had been killed, he climbed onto the slab at the funeral home, laid there and hugged his body, and promised that he'd do all he could to make life better for people, to live up to Wade's ideals of service. "

"Kerry was stunned, not moved, because, as he told me later, Edwards had recounted the same exact story to him, almost in the exact same words, a year or two before—and with the same preface, that he'd never shared the memory with anyone else. Kerry said he found it chilling..."

My favorite part about the whole thing is that apparently Edwards made it a point in his ABC interview to say that when he started the affair, his wife's cancer was in remission.

I was starting to feel bad about dragging this blog into the depths of such salacious gossip, but then I remembered Neill's post about one of the Michigan Undergrads jacking off during an Econ Final. Carry on.

What are you gonna do? With great power comes the great power to have sex with really skanky hangers on.

Good fucking thing he isn't our presidential candidate.

I had never read the story about John Kerry, that's funny.

As Dr. Strangelove would say, there was a fucking-another-woman-while-your-wife-is-sick-with-cancer gap. Now, thanks to Sen Edwards, we're finally even with Newt Gingrich.
