The irritating, honey-throated trial lawyer, son-of-a-mill-worker, and reigning Father of the Year has admitted what only the National Enquirer, Mickey Kaus, and about 75,000 blogs were heretofore brave enough to discuss ? he has been cheating on his cancer-stricken wife with a gal named Rielle Hunter. But just like Michael Jackson, Edwards swears the kid is not his son daughter. Finally, a political sex scandal involving sex!
Just desserts? Tabloid irrelevance? Tawdry-but-thrilling entertainment? Consider this your open thread.
Bonus Edwards quote, about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky: "I think this President has shown a remarkable disrespect for his office, for the moral dimensions of leadership, for his friends, for his wife, for his precious daughter. It is breathtaking to me the level to which that disrespect has risen."
