You know some in the liberal media have simply lost touch with reality when the headline reads "John Edwards Cheats on Wife With Cancer" and they ask with great detachment whether he'll be able to run for office again soon.:eek:
Their morality is so bizarre that they showed more outrage at John McCain featuring a picture of Paris Hilton in a commercial for two eye-blinks than for Edwards catting around on a dying spouse.
For months (and more hotly in the last two weeks), the National Enquirer has been trickling out the goods they collected on John Edwards having an affair and possibly a love child with campaign aide Rielle Hunter, staking out Edwards in a California hotel — and how he hid in the bathroom to avoid them.
There's a quick campaign ad on the two parties in a nutshell. Republican George Bush took on Osama bin Laden and took out Saddam Hussein. Democrat John Edwards hides in a bathroom from the tabloids.
Throughout this time, the very same media that almost immediately spread unproven trash on McCain's alleged "romantic" relationship with lobbyist Vicki Iseman because the source was the allegedly professional New York Times now remained as quiet as a cabin full of Carthusian monks.
Only when everyone was familiar with the story, thanks to the New Media, and when Edwards was forced to confess did the networks break their obedient silence.
Anyone watching the TV stories found a tone of sadness in the outraged disappointment of Edwards supporters like campaign manager David Bonior. That's acceptable.

My marriage ended because John McCain didn't want to be 40, he wanted to be 25," Carol McCain told England's Daily Mail. "You know that happens... it just does."
John and Carol, then a swimwear model, wed in 1965.
"I thought, of course, we would live happily ever after," said Carol, who now lives in Virginia Beach.
While John was held captive in Vietnam, Carol was disfigured due to multiple injuries from a car accident. He returned in 1973 and they split seven years later.
"My accident is well recorded," Carol recounted. "I had 23 operations, I am five inches shorter than I used to be and I was in the hospital for six months. It was just awful, but it wasn't the reason for my divorce."
Although John married his current wife – 17 years his junior – just a month after the split, Carol insists, "I have no bitterness."
It's interesting that no matter what real women actually say, the media spins it. Most wives of men who have been tortured or imprisoned for long time periods leave their mates. The men have become completely different people from the former courting personality. The same is true when women are in these circumstances.
It's a human issue - not a dating issue.

McCain made his choices and from what I gather he, his ex wife and current wife Cindy have put their differences aside and I think that's a great thing.
That being said, I still don't know if I can vote another RINO into office in November. Bob Barr 08. All I'm sayin."Don't vote. It only encourages the bastards." -PJ O'Roarke

Despite the divorce, Carol McCain has remained on good terms with John McCain and has supported him in all his subsequent political campaigns. She refused to discuss her marriage with an election opponent of McCain's in 1982 who was seeking negative information about him, telling the opponent that "a gentleman never would have called." She supports her ex-husband's 2008 presidential campaign, and told The Mail on Sunday in June 2008 that she was not bitter and that, "He’s a good guy. We are still good friends. He is the best man for president."

Even a big socialist/commie columnist chastises Edwards
I was shocked to see this column from her.
