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

[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.

[BINGO!]

Edwards is my top choice for VP

[Mine too!]

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.]

Susie...that is typical of anti-American guttersnipes like Troglaman to make statements like that.

As a retired USAF veteran, I can assure everyone here that if Troglaman and the rest of his guttersnipe clones win the upcoming election and have control of both the Congress and the Presidency, everyone in America will soon find out how the VA Health Care System works because that's what you'll have with the one payer system the Socialist Democrats will impose on us. You will have long waits for service just like the Canadians are dealing with because the costs will skyrocket, forcing rationing for care. Add to that the fact the the shortage of doctors in this country will increase under a federal bureaucracy running the health care system, and you have a disaster worse than anything since the Great Depression.

Hay, DUmmies, if Edwards is a logical choice for VP because of his ability of "adding the white working class Reagan democrats" as some DUmmies claim, then why do they need him to "bring Progressives home" because of Obama's "surge to the center?"

These DUmmies can't even make up their minds about Edwards' political stance (is he a centrist who attracts "Reagan democrats" or a "progressive" who attracts the extreme left? Inquiring minds want to know), how are they every going to agree with Obama's choice for VP?

I don't. I'm not the one bitching about socialized medicine (like the V.A.). You are, dumbass. I think he deserves it despite the fact he's a millionaire. The fact that he takes advantage of it makes him, by definition, a socialist millionaire. That's all.

T-man, did you leave your intelligence with your Internet service provider after logging in?

The VA is hardly "socialized medicine" as you believe simply because VA medical care is RESTRICTED to only those who have served. That excludes about 90 percent of the population in America. Don't believe me? Try getting health care through the VA yourself and see what happens. Did they turn you down? That doesn't surprise me at all as you are ineligible.

So, if about 90 percent of society, like yourself, is excluded from access to your supposed "socialized" medical care through the VA, how that hell can it be considered socialized?

VA medical care is not "socialized" medical care, it is merely government subsidized. There is a difference. And do you know what? The Vets deserve it.

"The fact that he takes advantage of it makes him, by definition, a socialist millionaire."

McCain is a socialist millionaire? Only in your world. The real world doesn't work that way.

T-man, you really have no clue as to how the VA medical care system operates. Eligibility for free health care through VA is determined through the use of a Means Test and you are required by law to list all assets and income EVERY YEAR to the VA. They do this because any medical care that is not COMBAT RELATED is charged to those who can afford it. COMBAT RELATED health care is provided at the cost of the government, as it should be.

If McCain is treated through the VA medical system for injury or illness that is not COMBAT RELATED, and he has the means to pay for that medical care (being a millionaire means that he does), then he has to pay for it, it's not free. So, how can anyone be considered a "socialist millionaire" when he, like just about everyone else, has to pay for his or her non-combat related medical care even if that medical care is provided through the VA medical system?

Dude, what country do you live in? This is America. How the hell can I or anyone else possibly enlist my kids, parents, cousins, in-laws, etc. into military service? I don't own those people and I can't force them into military service, or any other service for that matter. That's called indentured servitude (also known as slavery) and it's illegal! The only ones who can possibly enlist "all your kids, parents, cousins, in-laws, etc.," are those same kids, parents, cousins, in-laws, etc. that you speak of as we have an all-volunteer military.

The VA is socialized medicine. McCain's a millionaire. He deserves the treatment. What are we arguing about for the love of Mike? The term 'socialized medicine'? Instead of "a veteran getting his due," you could call it "God's Fairy Pony Round-up" for all I care and it's still socialized medicine. Face it, the VA is made up of a bunch of communists and McCain's one of 'em.

That reminds me. Didn't J Sidney visit his wife in the hospital or something? She'd been in a car accident and he wanted a...umm...divorce? Given publius' logic, the crippled Mrs. McCain must've given her permission for him to father more children.

"That's some pretty twisted logic"-Ray

Ray, Susie, Elrond, Jerome, et al.,

troglaman chose long ago that logic is not his strong suit. Using fallacious logic however, the man is on fire! He and I have gone back and forth on this subject.

"Do you mean the scandal bravely reported by the National Enquirer?"
-troglaman

This is an example of him using the Appeal to Popularity. He is saying that "Everyone thinks the Enquirer is silly so it is silly". Whether or not it's true, it's still a logical fallacy and weakens his argument.

"Let's see. Does McCain belong to the millionaire's club? Did the V.A. just pay for J Sidney's skin biopsy?"-troglaman

Here he is using the Fallacy of Irrelevant Appeals. He's trying to convince you with information that might be persuasive but is irrelevant to the matter at hand. The line he uses is easily confused with a Red Herring but in this case it's not meant to distract from the argument.

"If you jackasses would've enlisted all your kids, parents, cousins, in-laws, etc., we wouldn't be in this shit. Who's war is this? Hint...yours."-troglaman

Apart from the explicatives, which weaken any argument, troglaman here is using an Appeal to Force. He is saying if you don't accept my argument (if you can call it that) then you are an *explicative*. kayinmaine uses this logical fallacy often.

Whew! I've been out of town for a while but it's good to see that our trolls are still active.

You're right, ray. No snark. ray's right.

The VA is socialist because the people pay for it. I'm not saying it's adequate. It isn't. But health care is free for Congress, the Senate and the Administration. And who gets the better treatment? The Soldiers or the Senate? You know the answer. And that's been done on your watch.

Repeating a logical fallacy doesn't help you when you've already weakened your argument. And as for your baiting me, I'm not arguing with you, I'm simply showing how you're not really arguing either. Not in a logical sense anyway.

"the stupid "logical fallacy" thing...which I totally get *wink*"-troglaman

I doubt this because of the way you phrased the statement. I however have faith that you may someday "totally get" the concept if you apply yourself. If you are in college then I suggest taking Sociology of Law or a class that centers on Rhetorical Analysis.

If you're not in college (pre or post) then try reading a little about the subjects. People could then argue with you in a real sense of the term and you'd look less silly.
