Model Citizen in Every Way
So are we supposed to be surprised that it turns out John Edwards had an affair and quite possibly may have fathered a "love" child? Oh the horror, oh the shame....come on, this is really just par for the course. You think politicians and celebrities alike would learn or actually unlearn everything possible that supposedly comes along with being held under the pubic microscope (Yes, I did write pubic). Since when did being a public servant mean "servicing" as many women/men as possible......Roman orgies anyone? This is nothing new, the hookers (oh I'm sorry, the escorts....silly me) in Washington D.C. make Ashley Dupree look like Hannah Montana going out for ice cream with the cast of High School Musical. The news media goes bananas, Edwards has to come out & fess up and the National Enquirer get the credit for breaking the story....kinda makes you rethink the whole "everything they report is bulls**t" stuff the celebrities come out with whenever they get caught with their hand in the nookie jar. Edwards came off as pompous and arrogant as you would expect from someone that obviously considers Bill Clinton the closest thing to Hugh Hefner barely walking on 2 legs (maybe that's why he uses the 3rd one so much). He stated that the affair was during a period that his wife was in remission from her now terminal cancer.....Gold Star Johnnie Boy, you just won Humanitarian of the Year!!!!! The news media argues if whether this will somehow effect the outcome of the upcoming election, hurt the democrats chances to retake the Oral Office.....please, the majority (although some would still argue this point) of American citizens just got done voting for a mentally deficient, prior & possibly current deviant to "lead" this country for the last 8 years.....how has that turned out for ya? This will blow over as fast as an E. coli breakout at Taco Bell. Edwards political career in Washington may be over but how long before he's back out on the road stumping for his party, turning it into some kind of documentary filmed by his mistress that wins the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 2009. Right now I can see politicians across the country erasing their Blackberries, destroying videotapes, paying hush money.....the kind of closets you need to hold all these skeletons don't come with a real working man's/woman's paycheck. Politicians and celebrities suffer from the Sally Field Syndrome....."You like me, you really like me". Being showered with adoration, praise & acclaim seems to be the perfect bitches brew to make someone lose all ability to make coherent, mature decisions. This is how I envision it going down a few short years ago......"I did not have sexual relations with that woman"......um excuse me Mr. President they just found your DNA on that blue dress....." Oh, O.K., I did have sexual relations with that woman but I did it with a cigar". Come on, can't anyone ever just fess up & say "Yes I did it, I loved doing it & I'm about to do it again!!!". I would love just once if a politician would schedule a press conference, bring his Real Doll out with him, some of his bondage equipment, light up a huge joint, sniff some coke off the Press Secretary's arm and shout like some RuPaul/Ellen Degenerate tranny experiment "Hello world, this is me, this is who I am, love it or leave it, bitches!!!!" There are so many underlying reasons as to why we as a society look up to and put our collective fortunes in the hands of those that have "power" and their faces plastered on the covers of all the rags that are so conveniently placed on every corner of every city but no one REALLY wants to address them. "Change" is word being thrown about quite often lately but as we all know, the more things change the more they stay utterly ridiculous. Maybe it's something I'll go into more in the future but for now, bring on Britney at the VMA's and look for John Edwards, sitting front row center between Tila Tequila and a blue dress that can stand on it's own.
