And, After All, What Is A Lie?

"And, after all, what is a lie?
'Tis but the truth in a masquerade."
- Alexander Pope

A question was presented on Fox News about Edwards’s affair somehow affecting Osama’s chances to the White House.

Why would the Edwards scandal rub off on Obama and hurt his chances for the White House? Why would it affect Obama, if Obama IS, and has ALWAYS been faithful to his wife, Michelle?!

I wonder how many politicians, and news media members, who are showing so much scorn and outrage at Edwards’s extra marital affair, aren’t in a sleazy little affair themselves, who haven’t been found out YET? Hah! I’m starting to see that it isn't as if Edwards is the first to have an affair while married to a wonderful faithful wife!

I can't help but remember when Senator Larry Craig was so outrage by Clinton's and Monica’s little shenanigans under his desk.

Craig: “Well, I don’t know where the Senate’s going to be on that issue of an up or down vote on impeachment, but I will tell you that the Senate certainly can bring about a censure resolution and it’s a slap on the wrist. It’s a, bad boy, Bill Clinton. You’re a naughty boy. The American people already know that Bill Clinton is a bad boy, a naughty boy.

I’m going to speak out for the citizens of my state, who in the majority think that Bill Clinton is probably even a nasty, bad, naughty boy.”

I’ll eventually post the continuation of my prior post; for now let me continue barfing at all the unfaithfulness that seems to be going around by so many married couples these days!

And here I thought LOVE had always been in the air among married couples, when all along, it was a bunch of NUTS and SCREWS!!

The only way that Edwards illicit affairs would hurt Obama would be if people associated the two becaus they are both MEN. Other than being in the Democrat party thats about it.

I cannot see how one would affect the other. Edwards is just a scumbag, for doing that to his wife. She is a beautiful women who deserves better than what she has. She needs to divorce his ass and take him for every penny he has and kick him out that Castle he built. HE really is a piece of trash.

I don't either, but leave it to the Republican's try and twist things around so Obama looks bad.

I've watched Edwards on TV, and can see the pain in his face for being untrue to his wife. He confessed it to her way before he started running for president, and she forgave him. She's such a wonderful woman, but if I had been in her shoes, I'd have turned my back and walked away forever.

Edwards isn't the only one, there are so many roaches that have come out of the woodwork. I recently came across this quote, which oddly enough now reminds me of cheating husbands:

“Love is like a booger. You keep picking at it until you get it, then wonder what to do with it.”

I really don't see how anyones sex life affects their job (Ie..FDR, JFK, LBJ, and every other powerful male in history)...Americans are so stupid in this regard If everyone else had to live by this standard we'd all be unemployed (Sorry, you can't flip burgers, you've had sex outside of marriage)..People have sex, deal with it..I bet Obama probably has a special party house where his bitches and baby mamas live...I'd still vote for him if he did..

Edwards lied
Please don't tell anyone I am from Craig home state. I really didn't care if he is gay or not, just the fact that he lied and then tried to cover it up, that really pisses me off.

He was never a friend of mine.

Edwards lied many times over this incident. How would the democrats enjoy having him as their man about now?

Edwards as many others did before him let his giant ego lead him by the tiny penis, making him think he was bigger than he was. How far the mighty shall fall. Happens every day. Maybe we need all people in power to start reading certain parts of the bible, so that they will see where they may end up.

Re: Edwards lied
Aha! So Craig’s from your home state! Psst, don’t worry and read my lips, my lips are sealed!

I know what you mean; Craig being gay has nothing to do with it. I have quite a few gay friends that I love dearly! What angers me about the man is, that he spoke as if he never broke a plate, in reference to Clinton, while all the while, the sneaky, sly, snake in the grass, was the epitome of perversion in public bathroom stalls!

As for Edwards, it breaks my heart that he broke that wonderful woman’s heart as he did.

I don’t believe we need a Bible thumper in power, either. Look as the Bible thumpers of the past. What we need is a man like Obama, who has eyes ONLY for his beautiful wife!!

So you're pissed off the McCain called his wife a cunt, but could give two shits that Edwards fucked another woman, paid her off, and had a kid with her.

What planet are you on?

If only McCain was fucking interns. THEN he'd be ok with you.

You need to learn to read. PG is clearly not happy with Edwards cheating on his wife.

Marriage... what is it really?
I remember reading an article that discussed how a male's gamete has certain traits that allow it to compete aggressively against another male's gamete.

Now, why would nature develope such qualities?

It is of course because women tend to have multiple partners. And, of course, men do as well.

Marriage does appear to be nothing more than an ideology of men created in order to enforce certain legal implications or terms -- most likely brought about in order to create legal ties for the passage of titles from one generation to the next, e.g. land ownership. Or better yet, in order for courts to distinguish who is the rightful heir to a throne or other position of rulership.

Throughout history men and women have been married off by their fathers or by state officials (e.g. kings arranging marriages for dukes) in order to secure certain positions for state matters. Love being the reason for marriage is arguably a modern ideology. So, is it really any suprise that men sleep around with other women, and women sleep around with other men?

Marriage imposes certain duties upon men and certain duties upon women, but why does monogamy have to be one of them?

Re: Marriage... what is it really?
Dave, I don’t think that love, true love between a man and a woman should be so damn complicated with gametes and hamlets!

This is the way it’s supposed to be. Boy meets girl, girl meets boy. Boy falls in love with girl; girl falls in love with boy. Boy and girl marry, make mad passionate love everyday with one another ONLY and FOREVER, have children, and live happily ever after.

I think these words from Robert Browning are the most beautiful words in the world:
“Come grow old with me, the best is yet to be.”

That’s the way marriage is suppose to be, Dave!

Can't resist pointing that out. :)

Re: Typo!
Oh, how funny!! Could it have been a Freudian slip on my part?! Just kidding, but I’ll just leave it as is, because it has to be the most outrageous of all my Savanahisms yet!

I would have never caught it, had you not brought it to my attention. Thanks! :o)

Actually the McCain camp won't say much if anything. This can hurt Mccain more than Obama because if the media starts to focus on Edwards affair then they'll eventually start talking about McCain's past.

Obama got lucky and didn't pick Edwaerds as his veep and Edwards is staying hom,e from convention. So any Edwards talk will bring focus back on politicians who cheat or have cheated on their wives.

The McCain campaign may not, but Fox sure is, especially that disgusting pig, Hannity. How I loathe the man.

It might affect the Obama campaign because such a huge stink was made over Edwards endorsing Obama (which happened 30 miles from my house in Grand Rapids, MI). There was talk of him having some sort of position in an Obama-led Presidency - perhaps a cabinet position or even Secretary of State. It will definitely have an affect if it comes to light that anyone in the Obama campaign had knowledge of it; even if Obama himself didn't know, it will be cause for scandal. Why? Not because it is right, but because that's how the game of politics is played: with cheap theatrics and fingerpointing.

I was extremely disappointed that Edwards turned out to be this sleazy; as a man who has fought for human rights and stood up for the down and out, and who seemed so clean-cut, to have an affair on his wife - who is fighting for her life against CANCER - is even worse than McCain, Clinton, Craig, or any others. Elizabeth Edwards is a real trooper, and I have a lot of respect for her. I think of all involved, she's the one people should be concerned about here, not that SOB.

I disagree. An endorsement was a big thing from the terms of Edward fans, but it doesn't effectively link him to Obama. Talks about an important position came mostly from pundits and the media. He was never even so much as as surrogate, the talk was about how he kept mum on endorsing anyone till long after his endorsment was truly relevant and this is a blessing in disguise. Just as his endorsement was too little too late in terms of the primaries it also helps Obama now to show how little inviolvement Edwards has had in Obama's campaign at this point.

I also strongly suspect that Obama's team didn't know about this. Edwards interest in the VP job was lukewarm and there was NO mention of him even being vetted by the campaign for the job. He wasn't even on that oft mentioned shortlist.

None of this will stick to Obama, but it opens up McCain's past to the media if they make an issue of marital fidelity or sex scandals in politics. So it's a wait and see , but I have a feeling that if the media does a dump during the Olympics this might not hurt Mccain too much if at all.

There is too much scandal in politics...
Aug. 12th, 2008 06:31 am (UTC)
And so dirty!
Aug. 11th, 2008 02:40 am (UTC)
Sweetie, you need to calm down. This is what we call a "slow news cycle". These 24-hour news networks need to talk about something; Edwards is currently that something, and they're going to milk it for everything it's worth.

Although... really, I'd much rather they cover the situation at the House of Representatives with the Republicans demanding a return for a vote on drilling. This Edwards thing is diverting attention from a far more important issue.
Aug. 12th, 2008 06:41 am (UTC)
It's been some time since I switched from Fox to MSNBC, but just out of curiousity, I've been watching Fox, especially Hannity, and they have been milking the scandal as you said. They've gone so far as to lead viewers down the hall of some hotel. They even have the exact time Edwards entered the room of that horrible woman, and the exact time he left. Fox is unbelievable. They are as close to beasts as can be. They are evil, cruel and filthy.

When Hannity brought up Clinton, Colmes brought up McCain's affair. Funny, but Hannity didn't let him continue.

I can't calm down. I never knew grown men and women could be so evil, and I'm really surprised that politics IS dirty.

Re: The only rub off on Obama
Yes, that was pretty low of Edwards; just as low as Mccain having an affair with that woman, when his wife was disfigured by that horrible accident.

Although, I'm not military anymore, my job has to do with the military, and military terminology.
