The audacity of John Edwards

May 03, 2012

It's amazing that Sen. John Edwardshad the audacity to divert campaign funds for personal use. It's also unfathomable that he basically turned his back of his supportive wife, who was suffering from terminal cancer.

Even more mind-boggling is that Senator Edwards took some of that campaign money to cover up his relationship with his mistress, who bore his illegitimate child. He somehow thought he could wriggle through this morass of missteps and become President of the United States. Who needs the escapism of fiction when we have story lines such as this?

But most importantly, what I found to be the most astounding aspect throughout his forays was that the man's hair remains perfectly coiffed.
