John Edward’s Multiple Spiritual Guides?
Oh, the irony!
Even today, Republicans still have a strong urge to continue to ream out John Edwards because he cheated on his late wife while she was having major medical issues, they hope to continue to get the maximum political milage out of this somewhat passe issue while the public can remember who John What’sHisNameWithThe GreatHair was.
Sadly, they will have to put the brakes on that plan, lest someone point out to those few among them who are readers of mainstream media that Mr. Edwards was only following the game plan that Newt “Open Marriage” Gingrich and John McCain had mastered, Newt being the worldwide Past Grand Master of dumping old or dying wives while starting to play house with the next one. Rumor has it that Callista fears clearing her throat out loud lest Newt start getting her ready for a trip to the curb.
This is a photo of a young (wow, what a concept) John McCain with his first wife Carol. She waited for him while he was a prisoner of war, and a while after his return from Viet Nam she was injured in a car accident. While she was recovering (and still his wife), John hooked up with his younger and richer present wife and poof, the past is prologue.
This plan is more or less the same as the one that Newt Gingrich used with his older first and subsequent wives , so the procedure is one that’s been long established in the GOP.
In 1962, Gingrich married Jackie Battley, his former high school geometry teacher. Newt was 19 years old; she was seven years his senior at 26 years old, and they had two daughters together. Gingrich divorced Jackie Battley in 1980. Battley has charged that Gingrich discussed the terms of their divorce settlement while she was still in the hospital recovery room and heavily medicated after cancer surgery. According to L.H. Carter, his campaign treasurer, Newt said of Battley: “She’s not young enough or pretty enough to be the wife of the President. And besides, she has cancer.” He refused to pay alimony or child support. So to close this thought, If he had them ( including Calista) all at the same time, Newt might have had enough wives to qualify as a Mormon and scoop some of those votes from Mitt Romney.
All that being said, I actually do have a few objections to Edwards’ indiscretion, such as;
1. As there seems to be an offspring from the hook-up, the chances that Mr. Edwards was taking precautions of the condom flavor are, eh… small. For a guy that had so much to lose, this is a serious lack of planning for the future. Well, more likely it’s denying that there will be a future. A self fulfilling prophecy as it turned out to be.
2. Take a close look at the woman on the right in the photo below. Other than looking a bit like an early precursor to Michele Bachmann but with an actual smile instead of a grimace, she’s not too bad. But Mr. Edwards, for a guy with all that money and that great hair, it’s strange that you opted to pick the low hanging fruit, so to speak. I pose the same question for you that Jay Leno asked of actor Hugh Grant, “What the hell were you thinking?” and suggest that next time you try thinking with your upper brain.
By the way John, whenever there’s a camera in the room don’t do that vagina chin thing.
