KOmmies Promoting John Edwards For Veep
This just in from the "reality based community of KOmmieland: the KOmmies are promoting John Edwards to be nominated as Barack Obama's veep pick. I kid you not. And you know what, I PRAY that Obama pick John Edwards for the veep slot. This is just too FUnnie. Of course, the MSM still remains completely mum on the alleged John Edwards scandal. I wonder if they will be able to maintain their silence later this week when the Edwards love child scandal along with pics hits the National Enquirer. Oh, and Wikipedia is doing their best to keep this scandal from sullying their John Edwards entry as you can see in this absolutely brilliant NewsBusters ARTICLE. Both yesterday and today, I heard two different radio hosts reference this very same article and laughing about how Wikipedia has twisted itself into knots to justify their exclusion of the alleged scandal from their pages. Meanwhile the KOmmies continue to plug Edwards for veep as you can see in this THREAD titled, "why the Edwards 'scandal' has resurfaced." So let us now watch the KOmmies plug the Breck Girl for veep in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who has also joined the John Edwards for veep bandwagon, is in the [barackets]:
why the Edwards 'scandal' has resurfaced
[Hilarious conspiracy theories follow...]
No need for qualifiers here folks, I have been a pit bull for Edwards from the start of my blogging on KOS. But after reading this tripe on Huffpo, and hearing all the rumors of VP choices who are, at best,conservative democrats, and at worst a registered Republican, I no longer can stay silent. I owe my activism in almost every way to John Edwards - from my support of him in 1998, to my move to Colorado in 2000 to fight Tancredo (when Gore could have picked Edwards, but instead, went with Lieberman - what might have been?) to my work on Kerry-Edwards and this past year.
[Is that you, Rielle Hunter?]
Now, I have been working dutifully for someone whom I truly believe in, Barack Obama, since Edwards dropped out and am working daily 6 and 7 days a week for him. But I must defend someone who inspired me first, Senator John Edwards. Now ask yourself, Why do they attack a non-candidate? read on to find out the reason...
[Because we're jealous of his fluffy hair? Actually not. This KOmmie just posts some "facts" about how John Edwards is their best choice for veep.]
Indeed, with Obama pulling in 95% of the Black vote in the south, and Edwards adding the white working class Reagan democrats, we could bring back into the fold the south, whom Lyndon Johnson knew the Democrats would lose for a generation with the voting rights act. Well that generation has come today.
[Obama-Edwards 2008. Now there's a winning ticket! The rest of the KOmmies weigh in on John Edwards...]
For what it's worth, the MSM hasn't really picked the Edwards "scandal" up, so I'm not sure it will grow legs, even if he does become Obama's running mate.
[We're depending on the MSM to continue burying their heads in the sand like liberal ostriches.]
I wrote much the same thing the other day, the repubs fear Edwards and wish to take him off the ticket.
[No. No. I say put Edwards on the ticket. He's an even better choice for veep than Tom Eagleton.]
I'm glad someone finally has his back
[He sure had Rielle Hunter's back...and front.]
Is the general thinking "he wasn't even there -- the Enquirer is making stuff up" or "he was there, but there's a totally innocent explanation" that isn't worth giving b/c it dignifies the story.
[There is a totally innocent explanation of why Edwards was at a certain room in the Beverly Hilton hotel all night until the early AM and then had a Yakety Sax Benny Hill chase in the basement involving reporters which ended up as a tug of war on a bathroom door.]
I have a hard time believing he wasn't there at all. If he was somewhere else, they'd have leaked that by now, right?
[John Edwards was on a poverty tour of the Beverly Hilton in the early AM.]
To date, the NE has not produced any proof whatsoever that this occured. There is no way that a group of reporters did not manage to capture even a single photo but the NE has not published any photos or video.
[I am predicting a HUGE sale of National Enquirers chock full of photos in the very near future. I might even break tradition by buying a copy rather than just read it in the supermarket checkout line.]
Now, if he is asked to be vetted, that is another issue. But right now, he is a civilian who happened to visit some folk at a Beverly Hills Hotel.
[Folks like Rielle Hunter and Love Child.]
He was in Los Angeles that day. Edwards might have legitimate reasons for being at the hotel, or even visiting the chick in question...or perhaps she's a "nut or slut" or both who was obsessed with him...or her "friend" who drove her down from Santa Barbara and allegedly drove Edwards to meet her set the thing up to make a quick buck...or maybe, it's all a bunch of lies. It is a bit hypocritical to ignore this story when many here went batshit over the McCain/Iseman hoo-ha story a few months back.
[Yeah, prominent pols make a habit of visiting obsessed chicks. Come to think of it, why isn't Petra Verkaik similarly obsessed with ME?]
Which is something that has to be vetted by the Obama campaign. They have to find out, in ABSOLUTE PRIVILEGE, whether this is true or not. If it's true, it's a problem that would be distracting and would rule him out. But if it is not true, then I like this selection.
[Yeah I would love to hear the questions in that vetting process: So John, did you actually shtoop that flaky blonde? Oh, and how is your Love Child doing?]
the problem is the hiding in the bathroom. nobody cares about Edwards personal relationships, but when you are perceived to be hiding for no apparent reason, it does not smell right.
[Maybe he just didn't want photos taken of his hemorrhoids?]
The last thing we need now is people crying about his "privacy". Not only did the guy choose to have a public persona, he promoted himself as a devoted husband with his marriage to Elizabeth being a big part of his appeal. The truth about his sincerity and devotion to her is very relevant.
[Please. Pretty please pick John Edwards for veep!]
What concerns me even more is whether it's true that he presented himself as a viable choice for the Democratic Party's nomination, knowing that he could lose the whole thing with one false move. I'm not saying the story is true. But I'm saying that the question that bothers me is not just whether he treated Elizabeth honorably (heck, they might have some kind of agreement, who knows?) but whether he treated us voters honorably. I hope the answer is yes, and that it will be cleared up soon.
[I still say John Edwards is a viable choice for veep. Pick him!!!]
With McCain, the MSM was all over that story until he held a press conference and addressed it. The MSM is pretty much ignoring this. Heard any of the primetime cable shows cover it?
[Nope. It's called Hypocrisy in Motion.]
Edwards would not be so dumb to have an affair, and even if he did, is it not mightily conspicuous to have this 'break' when Obama is having his best press cycle and people are looking for a weakness?
[It's a conspiracy, I tell ya!]
Edwards as no chance in hell of been. Picked as VP. The whole baby daddy thing whether true or not as ruined his chances for good. Edwards is done in politics.
[I'm already picturing Ms Hunter getting half of the Edwards NC palace for child support.]
We owe it to Elizabeth to stand strong for him.
[Elizabeth has his back...while holding a frying pan.]
At this point, I don't see how the "ignore it and wait for it to go away" strategy can work for Edwards. I think he has to address it directly. But I'm no expert. I'm wondering what other people here think.
[Let me consult our DUFU fans.]
He just should have walked out of the hotel like nothing is up, it was him hiding in the bathroom that put this story back out there.
[He was having a Yakety Sax Benny Hill moment.]
If they have photos, I imagine they're holding them until the next print issue of the NE comes out. The editor hinted that they had more material.
Edwards is my top choice for VP
With Obama's surge to the center, he really needs Edwards to bring Progressives home. He needs him to secure the working-class Populist vote, which Obama hasn't exactly set on fire. Our best ticket would have been Edwards/Obama, and the powers that be successfully derailed that. Now they are trying to keep the strongest ticket we still have left from coming about. Judging by everything I have seen, they will succeed at that too, leaving folks like me little to be inspired about once again.
[Don't be shy. Just go ahead and blame it on Karl Rove.]
