Trial-Lawyer-Turned-Politician Revealed To Be Lying, Hypocritical Douchebag; Blogger Not Surprised At All

Chalk another one up for the National Enquirer. John Edwards has been forced to 'fess up that there are two Americas: one for his wife and one for his mistress. He's denying paternity of the other woman's child though. Err, if that is so, then why visit her in a hotel room in the wee hours of the morning, John? Just happened to be in the neighborhood at 2 a.m.?

Adultery is essentially a private matter but when the politician in question has gone around making his family and his marriage a major reason to vote for him, you gotta believe he deserves all of the humiliation coming his way. Especially when you can dig up Lewinsky-era quotes like this:
"I think this President has shown a remarkable disrespect for his office, for the moral dimensions of leadership, for his friends, for his wife, for his precious daughter. It is breathtaking to me the level to which that disrespect has risen."
