And the Silky Pony Surrenders

So, there is this story that has been pushed around the blogosphere for QUITE some time now about John Edwards having an affair and getting his mistress pregnant during his campaign; the same campaign during which he used his cancer sick wife as a tool by the way; it’s been huge on the right side of the sphere. However other than Fox News doing a small thirty second bit on it, the Media has largely ignored it. In fact, they have gone so far as to edit stories out that commented on his affair, and to cover it up for him to the best that they could. Wikipedia went so far as to forcibly remove all mention of the affair from his entry and ban people from reinserting the proven facts about it. I know they banned people, I was one of them who got banned.

Well, their colors were shown today when he stepped forward and said that yes the National Enquirer was right. Here is the guy who was the white Barak Obama, talentless, inexperienced, and mostly campaigning on faux charisma and looks, and while those looks and charisma may have gotten his ashes hauled, they didn’t get him elected. He said that yes, he slept with that woman, but he did not get her pregnant. Of course, his staffer buddy who has been paying her $15,000 a month is the guy who got her pregnant, not Edwards.

So, either Edwards is a cuckolded cuckold, or yet again, he’s lying through his teeth trying to save some kind of face. It doesn’t matter what he says now however, the story has been proven true. He did sleep with her, he probably did get her pregnant, and his wife is pissed. He hasn’t taken a paternity test; supposedly because it’s not his kid, which a paternity test would prove, but in reality he won’t take it because it would make him liable for child support to the tune of millions of dollars. He said that a paternity test would clear it all up, and he hopes for one soon. However given the fact that he’s an ambulance chasing lawyer, he probably knows some shady doctors and hospitals, and unless his biological sample is cared for with more security than fort knox, the odds on honest reporting in either the news, or in a press release, are far from likely. He’s screwed himself, the MSM has screwed themselves, and the editors of wikipedia have shown themselves to be members of the same flock.

Now, Edwards SAYS that when he was caught, coming out of her hotel room at 3 or 4 in the morning, he had just been there to talk with her at the request of a friend. That he had been there for just a few minutes before leaving and being caught red… err… handed by the National Enquirer. He doesn’t explain why he was there for hours, why moans and thumping came from the hotel room, or why he went there to talk to her at 3 in the fucking morning. To me, it sounds like he went there to have sex with her, then leave having done his business, and damn the proles from catching him having just done his dirty work.

Oh, and he more than likely won’t get the vice presidential nod now because of it. I do wonder however if Rielle Hunter will still get her $15,000 check this month.

One funny thing about this situation however. He said that the timing of the affair makes it impossible for him to be the father of the 5 month old child. However various reports, including the egg-on-the-face CNN state that his own wife has known about the affair since 2006. Given that these allegations broke in October of last year, and that there is pictoral proof of his meeting her in hotel rooms and the like, I find it highly likely that he IS in fact the father.

Now, he denied the allegations about the affair for almost a year yet had admitted to his family about it in 2006. He bold faced lied to reporters, questioners, staffers, and the american public when he said the affair wasn’t real. He lied as plain as day, and now thinks that because some small parts of the questions weren’t true made the whole story a lie and thusly something he could deny. According to him, he was telling 99% truth and just 1% lie. Of course, that 1% is closer to 100% in this case, but he’s a lawyer and a former politician, numbers confuse them until it’s time they get paid. Given his lies about this situation thus far, I do hope that people continue to finally call him on his lies about this situation. He coerced his staffer to declare paternity, and is lying about not giving Rielle Hunter money.

Considering the fact that John McCain was tarred by implication by the New York times about alleged impropriety, the fact that now, almost a YEAR after this was first reported, it is finally getting main stream coverage is asinine. Perhaps the Media would like to apologise to the American people for lying to them and misleading them on this subject.

They could even use John Edwards example from his press release. 1% truth, 99% lies.

    Hmm, well, I Googled Rielle Hunter and I gotta say while he probably could’ve done better, he could’ve done a whole lot worse too. Definitely higher quality whan Bill’s trim, but nowhere near a Kennedy-level mistress.
