Elizabeth Edwards Defends Her Loser Husband

Having never been married in modern America, I assume that fathering a love-child and having a steamy affair would get a man kicked to the curb faster than Chinese leftovers on trash day. But Elizabeth Edwards, opts to "stand by her man" with this Kos diary:

None of these has been easy. But we have stood with one another through them all. Although John believes he should stand alone and take the consequences of his action now, when the door closes behind him, he has his family waiting for him.

She also takes a cop-out by blaming those evil creeps in the media for all of her family's problems:

The toll on our family of news helicopters over our house and reporters in our driveway is yet unknown. But now the truth is out, and the repair work that began in 2006 will continue. I ask that the public, who expressed concern about the harm John’s conduct has done to us, think also about the real harm that the present voyeurism does and give me and my family the privacy we need at this time.

Whatever, lady. It's hard to be sympathetic to politicians and celebrities who have a fit whenever the media says something bad about them, since their job is to have a relation with the public and the media frequently acts as that conduit of information. It'd be the same if people in my profession got all pissed off about having to wear a uniform, or bloggers got upset when someone they didn't know visited their website.

Seeing how the Edwards' have done a pretty rotten job of getting the presidential nomination, perhaps it's time for John to revert back to his career as an ambulance-chasing lawyer.

Lucky for John, He Always Has a Future Extorting Money From Slip and Fall Injuries
