Rotten to the core

The unwinding of the John Edwards love child story drags on and on, but at this point it doesn't matter. As a vocal one-time supporter of his, it pains me to say it, but I would never vote for him for anything now, or ever again, even if he's suddenly telling the truth, which I doubt. The only thing that would rekindle my interest in that fellow would be if they prosecuted him for committing some sort of crime in connection with his cover-up. If they threw his sorry butt in jail for a little while, I'd feel a lot better. Nasty words like "idiot" and "scum" are used far too often on the internet, but there are rare times when their use is appropriate.

the only difference in him and other politicos is he got caught.
the whole lot are scumbags.

If idiot and scum are too common, how about bamboozler?

He was weak and she was willing and John's wife is forgiving, end of story.
His loose zipper does not alter the facts of his political endeavors, nor his desires for the politicos to regard the citizens as to whom they should be serving instead of being corporate shills.

Emphasizing: This is ONLY SEXUAL rotten faults -- You Don't Know Me: A Citizen's Guide to Republican Family Values, by Win Mccormack.

About this book: Shocking, illuminating, and profoundly disturbing ... details over one hundred cases of sexual misconduct by Republican officials, office holders, and ideological supporters. "Win McCormack reveals the true hypocrisy and depravity of those who love to quote the Bible but act like Caligula," hails Arianna Huffington.

["About the Author -- Win McCormack is publisher and editor-in-chief of Tin House magazine. He has been in the magazine and book publishing business since 1976. He published Oregon Magazine from 1976 to 1988, and has also been involved in publishing Oregon Business, Oregon Home, Travel Oregon, Military History Quarterly, and Art and Auction magazines, and was involved in the start-up of Mother Jones. He is editor of the books Profiles of Oregon, Great Moments in Oregon History, and The Rajneesh Chronicles, and won a William Allen White award for his investigative coverage of the Rajneesh cult from 1982-1986."]

It is true that these are altogether human and understandable and universal traits -- just DNA trying, if you will, to spread itself around. But for someone in Edwards' position -- what if he had been the Democrats' nominee, or Obama's choice for a running mate? -- in this country, with our history of crucifying politicians who commit sins of the flesh, his conduct is just unforgivably reckless.

"His loose zipper does not alter the facts of his political endeavors, nor his desires for the politicos to regard the citizens as to whom they should be serving instead of being corporate shills."

You've got to be kidding me. Like Edwards isn't part off the elite, good 'ol boy network.

Just how is the massive trial lawyers contingent any different from a corporate entity regarding power, corruption and influence?

If elected, Edwards would be one of the worst shills for all kinds of special interests.

Hey, I saw at some news stands, Obama may have a love child. I think it was the same rag that started the Edwards rumor. (I guess I am racist for noting this. Obama is probably a victim anyway it works out.) McCain also was rumored to have had an affair after a New York Times article raising such suspicions. Well such is gossip land. Better to concentrate on this then anything of real substance.

Oh, for that matter, it's time now as well as any, and better late than never, to review the One single case in which paying attention in the first place, 1989, could have arrested the gruesome depravity before the slip and slide coming down to the unspeakable pit of sexual perversity we suffer in today.

The reason that this 1989 case is the watershed moment, is because it included photo and video and audio recordings at mass orgies, which were planned, staged, and used (now on-going 20 years) to blackmail participants to keep silent cover-up of what they knew of others, by what they did themselves, were lured to, and got involved in. Doubtless here, every decent normal person reading this seeks escape into denial, covering eyes, plugging ears, zipping lips, running away immediately to avoid absolute trauma of the brain considering these facts. It is sordid beyond sordid, unspeakably horrifying. ("unforgivably reckless" is an understatement) Yet more horrid is our collective willful ignorance of this horror, still at-large, walking yet among us.

The case remains, and has not disappeared, while our heads are in the sand. Extenuations from it made news recently, (last month). The following citation is neither the most comprehensive nor gives the main material; only, here's enough to start the search engines of those who care to arrive at truth in life. This small dose of the putrid poison might, I hope, vivify the immune system to withstand further exposure (no pun intended) without ill affects. Just to start re-e-e-a-al . . . ge-n-n-t-l-e . . . one word: Guckert.

Consiracy of Silence video, Child sex ring that reached Bush Sr's Whitehouse. Cover up. - by xx, Mar 4th, 2003, (latest Comment activity, Aug 7th, 2008).
“Conspiracy of Silence”, a documentary listed for viewing in TV Guide Magazine was to be aired on the Discovery Channel, on May 3, 1994. This documentary exposed a network of religious leaders and Washington politicians who flew children to Washington D.C. for sex orgies. Many children suffered the indignity of wearing nothing but their underwear and a number displayed on a piece of cardboard hanging from their necks when being auctioned off to foreigners in Las Vegas, Nevada and Toronto, Canada. At the last minute before airing, unknown congressmen threatened the TV Cable industry with restrictive legislation if this documentary was aired. Almost immediately, the rights to the documentary were purchased by unknown persons who had ordered all copies destroyed. A copy of this videotape was furnished anonymously to ....

There are 19 more Washington Times [published] articles text about this case available here. NewsMakingNews.COM/sexandcapitol7,18,01.htm#article4. -- WASHINGTON POST, JULY 24, 1990: "... The Washington Times published reports last summer suggesting that the alleged prostitution ring had been patronized by government officials. ... Craig J. Spence, a Washington lobbyist and party-giver who, the paper said, took friends and prostitutes on late-night tours of the White House. Spence was found dead in a Boston hotel room last fall, and authorities ruled his death a suicide . . . To date, however, investigators have disclosed ...."

And, for any who are positively certain that what is known, by themself or someone, includes enough awareness of 'current affairs' that it is unimaginable, or impossible to have missed knowing a shred of this case, for those self-knowing "who," then answer this: Whatever happened to Boys Town? (in Franklin County, City of Lincoln, the capital of Nebraska). You know, the old, 'he ain't heavy, he's my brother'?

John Edwards ain't heavy, he's my brother. I never intended to vote for him, before, and hereafter I intend to not. Still, he IS my brother and denial statements saying otherwise are hypocrisy that is suffocating, snuffing out America.

I shoulda added: Christian Christmas seals.

At least they were not getting funds from the Chinese!


What business is it yours where Edwards dips his wick? Its between him, his mistress, and his wife.

As for lying to avoid the vicarious media scandal -- who wouldn't?

The slimy scenario has me doubting my sense of trust in all candidates.
Edwards had me with his populist view. Family man appeal. Someone who seemed to care. Yeah, he might be handsome, but seemed happily married to a very sympathetic wife. Sure, he had a big house, but whaddaya do with all that cheddar? I easily forgave his wealth as part product of good fights which needed recompense.

Now we learn that he failed to vet himself out of the race. It would have been so understandable after his wife's diagnosis. But no, he ignored the public trust and took a huge risk. That he might be the nominee.

The consequences include being rendered impotent in the power world he so coveted. Now that's Karma and I still have great trust in that phenomena.

Foibles is foibles, we all have 'em. But this stuff of Edwards', it's nasty. Lies to the wife, fine, his business (though hardly respectable). But lies upon lies upon lies.... Sheesh. It's like he's incapable of being truthful.

Pur Hypocrite,

It became our business "where Edwards dips his wick" when his tax-free "One America" political action committee wrote a $14,000 check to his mistress.

It's also possible that Presidential Election matching funds were used to squire the would be First Mistress around the country. At least he didn't waste any money on sheathing the aspiring First Member.

John Edwards is a bald faced liar.

Please let us not forget the scandal here is misdirection of funds - not a love child, cheating spouse or lying politician.

Sure, the French would laugh at us for a sex scandal, but that's just a distraction.

Richard Nixon was run, not because of a third rate burglary attempt, but because he brought the full weight of the Presidency to bear on a cover-up and obstruction of justice.

Bill Clinton's mess and impeachment was not about getting serviced by an intern, but, again, about bringing the power of his office to bear on obstruction of justice, suborning perjury and lying under oath. His sex life just happened to be the catylyst. When the top lawyer in the country flaunts the justice system, the whole thing teeters.

Jack, as a former supporter, I imagine it chaffs to think that any of your money might have gone to underwrite this business.

I gave him a few bucks in '04. Not this time, thank goodness.

Democrats forget this, but a lot of Americans still value marital faithfulness. I think it does say something about you when you cheat on your spouse.

Hence the reason I'm supporting Obama. He has never cheated on his wife. Unlike McCain, who admitted to cheating on his first wife in one of autobiographies.

Justin, how do you know that Obama "never cheated on his wife"?.

The knuckle-bump is only performed between faithful spouses.

That's how you know Barack's marital fidelilty is still intact.

"but a lot of Americans still value marital faithfulness"

Surveys show that 40% of married american couples have experienced emotional or physical infidelity. Ironically, the non-religious show a lower rate of infidelity than those who label themselves evangelical christians. The most faithful are female same sex couples (married or unmarried).

Johnny got caught (well, gee Girls and Boys, we knew he would) and they laughed at my man Down Neck Rick E of the National enquirer for breaking that 'tabloid trash' piece. Go Ricky Go! You called it. Great seeing you @ Joe-Joe's last month! Keep exposing 'em!
