Peter von Nostrand: What an asshole he turned out to be


Agreed. Scum.

At least this a heterosexual scandal.

It takes two to tango. As far as I'm concerned, both he and Rielle Hunter are scum.

Yeah, that's the first her, and she was completely looney-tunes even before the cancer.  She was sainted by some soppy-headed Southern women, but she was a complete harridan and a nutbar.

...Do we care?  Are we back to giving a flying fark about this assclown for some reason?  Last I heard, his political asperations were deader than his first wife, and "last I heard" was 4-5 years ago.  Has he made some sudden re-emergence that I missed?  If not, how is this our problem?

It's no scandal as far as the GOP is concerned. They just elected Mark Sanford to congress, didn't they?

And the mistress is none to happy about it. She is now complaining that since he has been elected to Congress she never sees him anymore and may not move the USA after all.

Good for you, Mr Edwards.

To be fair, if John Edwards weren't having sex with someone, he wouldn't even be in the news at all.

I'm surprised at how many people in this thread are surprised the story is still being pushed. It is a chance to admonish democrats for nominating such a scumbag to be VP nominee.

Now stop attacking Sarah Palin.

Peter von Nostrand: What an asshole he turned out to be


By all accounts (campaign insiders), his wife was an awful elitist Southern Belle shrew who routinely berated both him & anyone she deemed lower class.

He just didn't care anymore & decided to torpedo his career with his affair, then Wifey just happened to get sick & die when everything was falling apart, pulling the ultimate trump card of sympathy.

Got something on Facebook today about "The feds are now demanding a note from your child's doctor in order to allow lunches from home". So I click the link and see it's sourced from InfoWars. Sounds about as legit.

Let me just say that your characterization of Elizabeth Edwards is not correct. She was always very polite and accepting of everyone - no matter their class or background. In no way an "elitist Southern Belle shrew".

// Still not a John Edwards fan.

Triumph: National Enquirer? That's my bible.


At least they kept on the story; as the Lame Stream Media presented him as a Darling Boy Candidate...

"
The Enquirer could not be ignored, having forced its way on to the political agenda by dint of its sustained campaign to expose Edwards's sexual indiscretions. While mainstream papers kept silent on the subject, the Enquirer ran a series of articles on the Democratic candidate's relationship with a video-maker, Rielle Hunter, revealing in December 2007 that they had had a child together.
Edwards continued to deny that he was the father, with paternity initially being claimed falsely by one of the politician's aides, until January this year.So in the end the Enquirer did not get its Pulitzer, but it did get more journalistic kudos than it has enjoyed probably since its foundation in 1926."

and of course his use (alleged misuse of) Campaign Dollars... "Spanning many weeks, the Edwards trial in North Carolina showcased what prosecutors said was a classic case of misusing campaign funds: Here was a former presidential candidate, they said, who channeled large sums of money from a deep-pocketed donor to cover up a love child and a mistress."

So ja, Glad the story came out!!!

Nobody here has pointed out that the new chick works at Duke.

Really, Fark?  REALLY?

I guess he heard that Duke sucks and wanted to find out if it was true.

I'd take 10 John Edwards over 1 Sarah Palin any day.
 
2013-11-07 12:35:01 AM  
I only care about a candidate's  family to the extent that relates to actual policy stances.  Edwards is against gay marriage and pro all the traditional/sanctity of marriage bullshiat.

If he had been pro-gay marriage, then he could fark, marry, and divorce whoever the hell he wants as far as I'm concerned.

But he's not, so he can go die of cancer and burn in his imaginary hell with all the hypocritical GOP bigots whose beliefs he shares.

Read "Game Change" sometime.  Elizabeth Edwards, as we who had contact with her back before the '08 elections knew, was crazy.  Not a Southern Belle, and I wouldn't characterize her as a shrew, but really a monumentally entitled, self-important jerk.
 
2013-11-07 12:38:35 AM  
Come on, subby. Post. Tell us libs how horrible we are and that we still care about this guy. A lot.

Tell us how we're hypocrites and we're just as bad as the Republicans because we do it to.

Especially tell us how we farked up with Obama. I want to hear it all.

Except he doesn't get his own show, which is a dayum shame.

I didn't realize we had a choice.

Normally I'd join in the National Enquirer bashing, but...they have strangely uncanny ability to get things right about John Edwards.

Mostly because he's actually that farking asinine.

Peter von Nostrand: What an asshole he turned out to be


He's a lawyer!  Good lord.  What did you think?  That they are actually people?

Besides, she is rather ugly.  You figure he could get some far cheaper tail that looks far better and gives him the same sort of lies that whore is feeding him.

Does anyone actually think that real emotion is involved with these things?
 
2013-11-07 01:22:24 AM  
So, he's a widower, right?  No one to cheat on?

Kinda funny that the pro gay rights party has folks who get caught in heterosexual sex scandals, while the anti-gay party gets caught in the homosexual sex scandals. It's almost like they're compensating...
 
2013-11-07 01:36:09 AM  
So I guess subby doesn't want to come out and play-ee-ay.

Oh well.

I honestly don't know much about Elizabeth Edwards and don't particularly care to. But, she did have my sympathies at one stage. To be humiliated publicly by the man she trusted and dying at the same time. I cannot imagine how depressing that would have been.

Years ago, I thought John Edwards was kind of a cutie pie (he is a handsome fellow). When those scandals broke, it reminded me not to judge a book by its cover.

Some people truly are ugly on the inside.
