John Edwards

I never trusted John Edwards.

There was something smarmy about the way he looked.

When he denied the reports from, say it, the National Enqirer . . I wanted to believe him. But I didn't.

There was something about the way he looked. The way his eyebrows raised and his eyes slanted. His hair. Way too perfect.

So I believed the tabloid reports, in spite of Edwards' angry denials.

And today, it came true.

Now Edwards says the baby isn't his. He says he didn't pay the woman off.

But those denials are coming in the wake of his other denials. And there are already reports coming out that seem to deny the truth in both of them.

John Edwards. Just another in a long line of sleazy politicians who think . . as he himself said . . that they are "special", and above it all.

When will they learn?

When will we learn?

What the heck is it about sleazy politicians? They seem to become corrupted so easily... or maybe they were that way inclined, & therefore that is how they end up in politics?
It seems that in the end, power is very closely aligned to sex. Or sex is ...well, I guess you know what I mean.

Power and sex do tend to go together.

The problem is that power is sexy. As for John Edwards, consider that he was a very rich trial lawyer who got there with class action law suits, where the guy who wins is the lawyer. Nothing pretty there.

Correct, GJ.
