Adultery Is Baaaaaaad-- Unless You're John McCain


Some annoying Republican shill was leaving comments on all the DWT posts last week demanding we discuss the latest Infotainment news about John Edwards' tawdry affair. No one here found anything worth saying that wasn't already part of the unfortunate zeitgeist. But this morning I found a video at DailyKos-- a segment of a GOP propaganda broadcast on Fox that I somehow must have missed-- that is just what they must have wanted us to put up. On it Sean Hannity explains that McCain was beaten everyday for his country and that it's ok that he broke his vows and committed adultery, which, apparently, was a celebration of the Vietnamese not having broken his spirit. You know... extenuating circumstances... A little insight into GOP-think? Hannity also criticizes John Edwards' 28,000 square foot mansion but must have forgotten that John McCain has TEN HOMES (although that may be because McCain may own 11 or 12 or 13 homes. That's a lot of homes, even for as big a celebrity as John McCain.) John Edwards isn't running for office and, at this point, his problems are personal not public. If he broke his vows, that's now between himself and his wife-- unless he runs for office again. John McCain, on the other hand, is running for office and our ability to trust him and believe him when he makes a vow is important. And his adulterous nature didn't just stop when he hooked up with Cindy. John McCain is the most deceitful man in American politics.

Bleh, I try so hard to never watch Hanratty.

He DOES remind me that Rove pretty much proved McCain was a crazy POW back in 2000...

This also reminds me that John and Elizabeth Edwards were BOTH risking this election with their deceit on little johnny's "part". Your first instincts were correct Howie as always, let's ignore this one-it makes us look much more presidential I think.

One more update b4 I go back to ignoring this shameful gossip on a non-presidential candidate.

Off Huffpo: "She looks like John Edwards in a onesie".

"Roxanne goes on to say, "I've seen the pictures of the baby she looks like John Edwards. She's got his eyes and jaw line and lips, but she does have Rielle's nose."

I have concluded that adultery is one of the perks of public office. Wha? Run for office, lust required!

Considering that something like 75% of couples has adultery in the mix this is pretty like ho hum.

My problem always is that if you are going to be a public servant, then consider that a moratorium on adultery for crying out loud.

The irony that Bill and Hill are highlighted speakers at the convention is not lost on me.

It amazes me that no one in the media is willing to put Sean Hannity and Rush Liebaugh in their place. Dividing Americans for advertising dollar profits is Anti-American. Lying to Americans is UnAmerican AND immoral.
Can we even imagine what would have happened during ww2 if these biggoted liars were broadcasting back then?
