The Skew - The One Where We Hang John Edwards

Welcome to The Skew!

*insert audience applause and catchy theme music...and maybe even some awkward white girl dancing*

Each week we will introduce a topic. If you would like to sit on our panel and weigh in (no scales though...I swear!), please post your opinion and link up. All opinions are welcomed...even yours. *wink*


 



John Edwards....

*shakes head with disapproving look*

He strutted his family around and put them up on the stage for all his dog and pony shows trying to prove to everyone that they were the all American family. 

His kids in their pretty little dresses and John John's with knee socks and pea coats...

His supportive wife with her matronly dresses and pearls... 

His pearly white smile and his hair swooped to the side... 

He actually tried to win over the area I was raised in by saying he was "from" my town...when in actuality, he lived there with his grandparents when he was a baby for a few months. 

Ummmm....sorry Mr. Edwards. I don't think that really counts. 

I spent a lot of time at my grandmother's in Georgia and my other grandmother's in North Carolina.....but I think that hardly counts me as a resident! 

So I've known he was a poser from the start. But now I'm just plain disgusted. Why? Cuz he's just another morally void politician. He lied repeatedly to his wife even though he was publicly busted. 

Come on man (term used loosely).....even in her denial stage she's smarter than that! You care so much more about trying to save your own face that you are wiling to make your wife look like a fool in public. 

If you were a real man, you would suck it up and take your lumps. 

And the thing that makes it even worse? You denied your child even though you knew there was a good chance she was yours. WHY didn't you get a paternity test before now? That is the sleaziest of all your moves. She will know what you did. BECAUSE IT IS ALL PUBLIC RECORD!! 

Poor Dan Quayle was lambasted and ruined over reading an index card with the word "potato" misspelled. 

But for some reason, cheating politicians are becoming more widely accepted. SINCE YOU ARE ALL DOING IT THESE DAYS! You have been busted....time after time. Now do us all a favor and just go away. 

Nobody wants to see your sex tape with you and Tiger's hookers.....oh, excuse me...."escorts." *rolls eyes*

You, John Edwards, are a tool. But not the useful kind...

That, folks, is how I feel about John Edwards. I am a little disturbed that it appears I am the stuffy old hag Barbara Walters of our group. I wanted to be Sherri Shephard. *insert frowny face* Go see the other ladies on the panel and guess who they all are. 

Disclaimer: This post is neither an endorsement of Republicans or Democrats. It is, however, in support of scorned and publicly humiliated spouses no matter their political affiliation.

Kmama said...

that was well written and I agree whole-heartedly with everything you said. What is it today? With affairs being looked down upon so heinously by the public (or so we're led to believe), then why does it seem more and more people are doing it??

CountessLaurie said...

And people wonder why the country is in the toilet... I would say it's because our "leaders" morals are in the toilet!

If you lie and cheat on your wife, what are you going to do to your country, who you probably love a little less?

Hmmm. I feel a post coming on :-)

Ed Adams said...

He's a Democrat.

Infidelity is like a party prerequisite.

Chief said...

I have to know..

what was the question about my butt be sore?


Ive sat her for 20 minutes trying to figure it out

Shana said...

He is a loser and I find it really sad that it is "ok" for politicians to act this way.

Cassie said...

I heard that it is worse and the real reason she left is in the midst of an argument about his philandering, he punched her. And you thought he couldn't be more of a scumbag.

Tina said...

A freakin men. Sad and lowly is all I have for him.

Shell said...

Love your disclaimer.

Tracie said...

No wonder Bill Clinton didn't pick him as a running mate. Too much competition for the ladies' (using that term very loosely) affection.

*Insert your own 'loosely' joke.*

Meeko Fabulous said...

Oh I know! I've always thought about these fool politicians and how everything they do is under the scrutiny of the media. It will all eventually end up on YouTube for their kids to find in the future. LoL

Margaret said...

I agree with you. He is a total jackass!

Homesick Cajun said...

John Edwards is a (in the words of the famous Meeko) a douchecanoe!! I can't believe his wife stayed as long as she did! Tisk tisk!

Daffy said...

Lawd have mercy! There is a whole comedy routine behind this one...however I do believe in the intrest of time (as in I totally have to go bed) I think I'll just give this big ole douchcanoe a free launch over Nigra Falls

Heather @ Two Little Monkeys said...

Great post!

Erin said...

LOL! I'm with Daffy on this one. I hate this asshat and honestly he makes me want to barf.

carissajaded said...

Amen. I hate this dude. His smile makes me want to vomit. And so do his actions.

Captain Dumbass said...

Sadly, it's like we expect it now.

WhisperingWriter said...

John Edwards. Yuck. He's right up there with Jon Gosselin. Maybe even worse since he cheated on his cancer striken wife.

The Manic Mommy said...

Yep - I have NO Idea who this cat is! But he's obviously a total D-Bag!! I dont follow politics! If it wasn't for his face on every car butt I wouldnt know who the president was (Just kidding!!). This guy sounds like trash and a true politician! Great write gal!
