John and Elizabeth Edwards = Bonnie and Clyde of the Democratic Party

Good day fellow readers, bloggers and lurkers! By now I am sure that most of you have heard about the revelation of Senator John Edwards affair and possible baby-daddy status for the bastard child he may have sired with Rielle Hunter aka Living-under-assumed-names-and-in expensive-condos-and-houses-with-PAC money. Now before I delve into my take on this situation, I have to give my knee-jerk caveat; some white folks are just goddamned nasty!

For many of you who perceive yourselves to be the moral conscience, compass, and plum line of our country, ya'll really do some fucked up shit! I mean, I know black people are messed up, but most of that is related to de-compensation for a lot of the shit we had to endure in our dealings with you.

On to my... .02 about the Edwards, the bastard, and the skeeza...

So what would you moral pundits say about two people who attempt to deceive the American public by flat out lying to it? Would you trust them to be President and First Lady? Lets add some more dimension to this because it gets even better. Both people are trained lawyers, realize the importance of upholding the truth, and also realize the dangers of perjury and how lying undermines the system of justice they both swore to uphold.

So, reports have been coming out with even more information regarding John Edwards' affair and the timing of when he revealed his affair to his wife. According to several news outlets and even the Edwards themselves, the affair happened between 2005 and 2006. Both John and Elizabeth have reported that John-Boy admitted the affair shortly after it happened.

So, poor, cancer stricken, Elizabeth knew about her husband's cheating ways and also denied the accusations on her husband's behalf. Stand by your man or First lady opportunist?

My problem with this is that these two individuals are LIARS. Period. Having a metastatisized form of breast cancer doesn't abrogate you from being honest. What Johns did was wrong... dead wrong and I hope he gets exactly what he deserves for lying to America, but more importantly, lying to and cheating on his wife. However, Elizabeth was complicit in her husband's lie while she defended him against the affair allegation even though she knew about it.

Is the allure of the presidency so strong that it compels people to do anything to get it? Probably so. Lord knows the OG Bonnie and Clyde of the Democratic Party, Billary, would have auctioned Chelsea off to some Indonesian sweatshop for the opportunity to live at 1600 PENN again.

I'll admit... I was upset with John when the revelation came out. I completely bestowed victimhood on Elizabeth because I felt sorry for her because she has cancer. Then I started thinking, what if she knew and lied with and for John? Of course my suspicions were confirmed.

Yes, Elizabeth is a victim in this horrible series of events, but she's also a liar. Her husband is a piece of scum and so is the woman who bore him the bastard child he denies fathering. In this instance they all deserve each other because they behaved like common trash, especially the Rille and Jon-Boy.

The only true victim in all of this is the baby who will probably never know who her father is because John Boy and his baby's momma don't want to go before Maury Povich to do the paternity test - and the two children he fathered with Elizabeth.

I have done some slimy and shady shit in my life and of course I am not too proud of. But none of it should be of concern to anyone else except for who my partner was. If I was asked about it by my job or some stranger, I would lie to hell and back to avoid being embarressed by people who should be minding their own business. It's human nature. John and Elizabeth Edwards are no different. The real scum are the outlets that keep pushing for scurrilous and salacious tid bits that increase their readership in order to line their own pockets with the private affairs of others.

I meant to type that I agree with the PREMISE of the post, however I am not a fan of referring to out-of-wedlock babies as bastards.

When they decided to embark on a calculated plan to deceive their donors, supporters, and the electorate, they relinquished their right to privacy. In fact any person who wants to be a public figure should not be so naive to expect privacy in these types of matters.

The biggest thing for me is that they both LIED. I can't hold Liars who want to president in esteem. I never have and I won't start doing it now.

The more John talks the deeper he digs himself into a hole.

The only victims in this are the children... they have no control over their parents' wanton ambitions.

I know, I know... it's not the child's fault... I use the term loosely to make a point. Glad that you liked the post though.
