One down, two to go

Precisely no one is shocked as John Edwards finally admits the affair that the mainstream media couldn’t bring itself to report back when it actually mattered:

Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards on Friday admitted to an extramarital affair while his wife was battling cancer. He denied fathering the woman’s daughter. Edwards told ABC News that he lied repeatedly about the affair with 42-year-old Rielle Hunter but said that he didn’t love her.

Clearly he lied about love, which is no crime. Or, not-love, I suppose. Whatever, won’t people stop harassing this poor man? He’s not an important public figure like Joel Osteen’s wife, Christie Brinkley, or Britney Spears, he gave up being a major Democratic Party candidate for President MONTHS ago! You’d think a man whose wife was dying would get some respect for his privacy.

1. John Edwards admits an affair with Rielle Hunter. CHECK
2. John Edwards confesses to fathering Rielle Hunter’s child.
3. John Edwards changes his name to Jeanette, co-adopts Rielle Hunter’s child with Razor Ramon HG.

Now, what was that about the reliability of the National Enquirer versus the mainstream media again? It seems to me the evidence suggests we may need to rethink our dismissal of all those bizarre reports about bat children and aliens. And I wonder how long after the election it will take for all the true stories about Obama to find their way out to the public… assuming Hillary doesn’t find a way to put them out there first.
