Which Bit To Excerpt From That Book About John Edwards...
Have you read theWall Street Journal's review of Andrew Young's book THE POLITICIAN about John Edwards yet?? It's not really a review so much as a "check out all of these fucked up things John Edwards did while running for president" laundry list. +1, Wall Street Journal.
This should suffice:
Hunter’s pregnancy: According to Young, Hunter called him in May 2007 to say she was pregnant. Young says that when he informed Edwards, the senator told him to “handle it,” to which he replied: “I can’t handle this one.” Young writes that Edward unloaded on Hunter as a “crazy slut,” said they had an “open relationship,” and put his paternity chances at “one in three.” Young says that Edwards asked him for help persuading Hunter to have an abortion. Young writes that Hunter believed the baby to be “some kind of golden child, the reincarnated spirit of a Buddhist monk who was going to help save the world.”
But that last part has yet to be disproved! So until we see whether little Quinn turns out to be (a) a monstrously depressed poop-eating gonorrhea crack baby on welfare and stuff or (b) "some kind of golden child, the reincarnated spirit of a Buddhist monk who was going to help save the world," we will withhold our verdict on whether Edwards was right to donate his seed to the lady Rielle Hunter.
(PSST: (a) IS CORRECT.)
