Oh, and, John?

My biggest problem with politicians isn't that they lie. My problem is that they throw bullshit out now without even considering for a minute how stupid the constituency would have to be to take them at their word.

This from Fox News..."Market Research

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards — the multimillionaire who has made fighting for poor people a key campaign issue — says he worked for a hedge fund to learn how financial markets relate to poverty. "It was primarily to learn," Edwards said, "but making money was a good thing, too."

Edwards won't say how much he earned as a paid consultant to Fortress Investment Group. But Fortress was the single biggest employer of Edwards' donors during the first three months of this year — with more than $67,000 in contributions.

Hedge funds are group investments that are not as tightly regulated as traditional mutual funds. Edwards says his job with fortress was a complement to his position as the head of a poverty center at the University of North Carolina.

John: Please don't say things like that any more, ok?


  1. I agree with you. I desperately want to like John, but he's not the open and honest candidate every voter hopes for. He's trading southern charm for political snake oil.

  2. John Edwards is a fraud. Afterall, he made his millions as a trial lawyer--frivolous medical lawsuits. He's also been linked to far left groups, such as (who are trying to control his every move). And this guy is running for president (again)? S-C-A-R-Y.

  3. .

    Heh heh heh.

    John Edwards cracks me up.


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
