John Edwards Can’t Hide Behind His Wife This Time

Posted by Mike on August 6, 2008

Do you ever get the feeling that John “Polly Prissy Pants” Edwards is Ann Coulter’s favorite target? I don’t if that has anything to do with the fact that the former Democrat Vice Presidential nominee is also one of the easiest targets out there, but she sure does seem to enjoy herself when he is the topic.

Today’s Coulter column is of course about the mainstream media’s silence over the story about John Edwards cheating on his cancer-stricken wife compared to their reactions to conservative scandals. According to Annie C., the media’s burning to desire to cover for the Silkster has caused them to refrain from reporting anything about the possible future Cabinet member. She even goes as far to proclaim:

Do you know what this means? At this precise moment in time, I could call Edwards a name that would send me to rehab, and the media wouldn’t be able to report it!

This woman is a genius. On the one hand, the media can’t report anything about Edwards because that would make him newsworthy again, thereby making it more difficult for them to ignore the obvious. On the other hand, here they have Ann Coulter hurling a politically incorrect insult at one of their favorite politicians. Now there’s a dilemma that won’t send a thrill up Chris Matthews’ leg.

This isn’t the first time Ann Coulter has battled John Edwards, but something tells me John won’t be able to hide behind his wife this time.

    Well, word just came out from Edwards himself that the affair really happened but:

    1. the “love-child” is NOT his
    2. he didn’t love her

    So, should that make his wife feel any better because he didn’t “love” the woman he cheated on her with? Because Elizabeth Edwards was in remission when the affair began, does that make the act somehow OK? Edwards is a truly sleazy person… which could help his image within the Democrat Party!

    I think edwards is sleazy for doing this, but why does no one ever blame the other woman?

    I think she just wanted to get attention and seduced him
    . After all, wasn’t she an aspiring actress/ producer.
    40 years old without a baby, I bet rielle hunter was trying to get pregnant.

    I hope Elizabeth doesn’t stand there by her husband’s side in support like so many cheated-on political wives in the recent past.

    How about some dignity!
