Political Shocker!

Yet another politician has admitted to having an extramarital affair. (I am not sure I would even call John Edwards a politician...he does not hold a political office nor is he running for office, although there has been chatter about him being a vice presidential running mate....maybe I should just call him a lawyer). I ask you this, what is the point of main stream media wasting time for him to explain what happened? (ummm he screwed around on his wife). We can all agree he is an asshole for cheating on his wife and children. But seriously for Nightline to take up air time rehashing an affair that John Edwards wife has known about since 2006!! Speaking of the lovely Elizabeth Edwards.....could the media please not air her family's dirty laundry...she is a little busy fighting freakin' incurable cancer!!!

Between that & Bush going all the way over to China this week & insulting the Chinese people & their country - we're certainly batting 1,000!

Glad you mentioned Bush in China, Alison. WTF is right!!! Even though we have our little girl home, I still cringe every time there is bad press or another problem with China and the rest of the world. It makes me fear so much for all of the other families waiting to bring home their babies. My friend Tracy is going to be traveling soon so I almost passed out when I woke to the news this morning about an American being murdered in Beijing. Again....WTF?!

I agree...it's pathetic. It's graceless and cruel to a woman who has handles herself with a terrific amount of grace. It's the media at its lowest.

I love your new blog, Maryellen!! It's gorgeous and it suits you! I now have it bookmarked!

Thank you - my thoughts exactly on this topic!

Couldn't agree more - I have no interest in reading/hearing about so ego-maniac having (yet again) an affair. The fact that, as you say, his wife is so sick just makes it more awful that the media are intruding upon her life like this.

Lurve your new blog by the way.
