My Sentiments, Exactly, About the Phony Silk Pony

The Wall Street Journal captures the unique essence of John Edwards:

"Brad Warthen, editorial page editor of the State, a newspaper in Columbia, S.C., has a telling story about John Edwards, who visited the State's editorial board in January 2004, hoping to win a primary endorsement. A week later Howard Dean came by:

"Isn't [Dean] a nice man?" said our copy editor (the fan). I agreed. Then came the revelation: "Unlike John Edwards," observed the administrative assistant. What's that? It seems that when she alone had met then-Sen. Edwards at the reception desk, she had been struck by the way he utterly ignored the folks in our customer service department and others who had hoped for a handshake or a word from the Great Man. He had saved all his amiability, all his professionally entertaining energy and talent, for the folks upstairs who would have a say in the paper's endorsement.

It's another bit of evidence that Edwards's populist persona is utterly phony. Blogger Roger Simon explains why this matters:

People like Edwards are more than just fakes--they are actually dangerous. By parading around like a popinjay for the poor, he actually hurts them, making a mockery of genuine of [sic] problems. Everything is about Edwards and his glory. It's not about anything else.

Meanwhile, Edwards's wife, Elizabeth, tells CIO Insight why her lesser half is at a disadvantage against Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama: "We can't make John black, we can't make him a woman. Those things get you a lot of press, worth a certain amount of fundraising dollars."

Well, OK, they can't make John a woman, but that doesn't mean they can't try!"

He is definitely a she-male in transition, Lord knows which direction!

Gosh, the trail of Harry Reynolds, intrepid smear artist, leads back through MoveOn dot orgy to John Boy Edwards. Who wouldda thunkkit?

Pretty lil Silk Pony has one of his trial lawyer pals start a racist-goat-sex porn site linked to Fred Thompson.

Wonder what Melissa Marcotte over at Shakespeare's siblings would say about her boy-toy ninny's latest mis-step?
