But we keep seeing what happens when the rug is pulled up and the cockroaches scurry out from underneath. The Clintons had their Charlie Trie and Johnny Chung slipping them Chinese cash. Obama took donations from credit cards which were disabled to prevent knowing where the money was coming from. Now John Edward’s aid lifts up the rug a little more (from The Daily Beast):
“Thanks to a long list of wealthy donors, including Bunny Mellon, Edwards was able to spend massive amounts of money to keep the affair a secret. “I know of at least a million dollars. And there was much, much more,” said Young. “We were living in mansions, flying around in jets. … Money was no object.” At one point Young reports receiving “an envelope full of cash, hundred-dollar bills, was wrapped in Fred Baron’s [a major Edwards benefactor] stationery.” The package came with a note that said, “’Old Chinese saying, use cash, they can’t trace it.” (ABC News)
Oh, my, but we can’t have corporations spending money. And even though Johnny Edwards broke campaign finance laws, let’s crucify the kids who had the temerity to enter Senator Louisana Purchase’s office to find out why her phones were always jammed. Life as a liberal must really really suck.
From the National Review, Obama to a Republican congressman: “When you say that suddenly, I’ve got a monthly . . . deficit that’s higher than the annual deficit left by the Republicans . . . that’s factually just not true. And you know it’s not true.”
….”That means that over twelve years of Republican rule, there was an average annual budget deficit of about $104 billion. Compare that with an average annual deficit since 2008 of $1.074 trillion — or about $90 billion per month.”
That’s pretty damn close to being “factually true”–too close for comfort.
Don't tell Keith's little secret!
“Here’s a little secret, gathered, sadly, from witnessing it my whole life, even from some in my own family,” Olbermann said. “When pedophiles get together and they don’t want to be caught using any of the popular epithets in use every day in this country about kids – and there’s a chance one of them, or worse still a straight guy who doesn’t get it, might wander in and hear the conversation, when there’s a risk even in saying “kingpass” or “child modeling” the pedophile guys revert to euphemisms and code words.”
And to keep people from attacking pedophiles, they call straight people names such as “worst person in the world” and “raaaaacist” and “teabagger.” Ooops. See, Olby, two can play at this game of making up shit and spreading slanderous accusations with their “code words.” Come sue me. But remember, truth is an absolute defense to defamation.

John Edwards is a phony. He recently showed up in Haiti, but that’s not the news. The news is what somebody in The Gawker wrote about his trip:
“Edwards is still convinced people will believe him if he continues pretending to give a shit about poverty. Not only do people not care about poverty in general, but they also have trouble believing in the sincerity of a ridiculous phony egomaniac who constantly lies about everything. He seriously told the White House that he wanted them to, who knows, announce his Haiti visit, or endorse it, or something. According to Marc Ambinder, “this declaration was met with silence. John Edwards is a hilarious narcissism monster.”
Finally, after denying it for years. After enabling him, and believing his bullshit, and supporting his lying life style. I wonder if he had a thousand dollar hair cut before he flew into Haiti? Did he fly his own private jet? Is he going to channel some of those dead people?
When Hot Air links you, you arrived big time. For his excellant article in the Times Dispatch:
“This is a complex issue, and the longer it was debated, the more skeptical people became. I take my share of the blame for not explaining it more clearly to the American people.”
