John Edwards Still Talking About Poverty While Dodging JUICY QUESTIONS About Affair
John Edwards has been mysteriously absent from the news for many months, ever since he announced that he could very well have gotten John McCain elected president had he (Edwards) won the Democratic nomination because he was having sex with some hippie crystal worshipper who gave birth to a child that looked like"John Edwards in a onesie" even though he was not the father.
In other words, John Edwards was nationally humiliated and widely acknowledged to be a vulgar womanizing dirtbag. After that, it was assumed that he would go away and not bother anyone with his mill stories ever again.
Except not, because: speaker fees! As of late he has been speechifying in places, about poverty and the mill, most recently in the former mill town of Providence, Rhode Island.
After his half-hour talk, a Brown student journalist very predictably asked Edwards a question about his TAWDRY AFFAIR, which he was forced to answer because the question was sufficiently vague as to not be completely offensive:
A student who said she organized for Edwards on campus and knocked on doors for him in New Hampshire asked whether politicians should be held to higher moral standards than the rest of the public.
The question sent murmurs through the crowd.
“I don’t think it’s for a candidate to decide what’s appropriate,” Edwards said. “It’s something for every American to decide for themselves.”
He added: “I have my own view, which I’m going to keep to myself tonight.”
Meanwhile the National Enquirer has yet another story about how John Edwards really is the father of Rielle Hunter's baby, and oh Elizabeth Edwards has yet another book coming out about facing adversity.
And before we go, one last bit of weirdness from John Edwards' big night out in Providence:
In his half-hour speech, Edwards noted some of the ways in which he has spent time in the past six months. He talked of how his youngest children, Jack and Emma Claire, had their tonsils out. He described a December trip to a slum in Haiti and how he helped wrap the bodies of dead children.
