    John Edwards must being thinking WTH

    With his popularity at 3%, Edwards must be thinking WTH. Two bastions of the left who had their own extramarital affairs walked away relatively unscathed. Clinton with his cigar in WH and Teddy K, that led to the death of a woman at Chappaquidick.

    Will the left eventually welcome Edwards back and support him, should he decide to run for political office again?

    He's probably downright stunned by Newt Ginrich's being able to run for office.

    While both of those examples are legit to mention, I don't think they rise to the level of how Clinton disrespected the WH with an INTERN and leaving a woman to die to save his own arse like Teddy.

    Oh you mean like Warren G Harding (R) having sex in his Senatorial Office and the White House with several woman? And fathering children out of wedlock...

    We could trade posts on this all day along.....but here is a decade of sex scandels from 2000-2009 for you from both parties:

    After Billy Clinton, I've never thought of a cigar in the same way that I once did.

    3%! That's impresssive! I wonder if Hitler might not poll a point or two higher than that?

    I think that low number in comparison to other philanderers of the left and right is probably due to the fact that he was hirinng and bonking a floozy while his generally liked spouse was still dealing with terminal cancer. This was more than walking the proverbial Appalachian Trail.
    Moving on...

    On the radio this morning a reporter covering the trial said that Edwards is so slimy he feels like he needs a hazmat suit to enter the courtroom.

    Hey, I actually once liked the guy and supported him... but I liked his late wife even more... I am pretty sure a lot of his more hard core supporters feel the same way...

    Everyone probably runs out of the court room to take a shower when it isn't in session.

    Always wondered why Sanford wasn't charged with dereliction of duty or abandoning office.

    Probably not a crime, but seems like there should have been something there.
