I just hate when that happens. When I cheat on my spouse with a lover and we make a sex tape and then, to make sure everyone knows we made a sex tape, my lover files a lawsuit. And then, just as we are about to go forward with our lawsuit on that, the feds come around and perp walk me on criminal charges.
I just hate it when that happens. Hate it.
I do not know if Mr. Edwards could get any trashier.
I suppose he could attempt to postpone a court appearance due to a herpes outbreak.
At any rate, an e-mail from a stranger basically says, "Ruth, why are you writing about these trashy scandals? There are real issues!"
I actually only wrote about Anthony Weiner twice and I did so because I felt he needed a supportive voice out there. As for Mr. Edwards? As I have explained, I will never forgive him for the way he manipulated the Democratic Party primaries, for the way he lied and used his 'authority' to trash Hillary Clinton.
He is getting what he deserves and I do want a front row seat to it.
It is equally true that if you come here, you also get C.I.'s Iraq snapshot for the day. C.I. has covered all the Iraq news in that. So I would ask you, "Did you not read the snapshot?"
This week alone, C.I. has reported on a U.S. commission hearing (Commission on Wartime Contracting), a Senate Veterans Affairs Committee hearing, and a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing. That is original content, C.I. attended those hearings and reported on them. There was a great deal more in the snapshots but I will note those three things and also point out that you did not find that sort of reporting elsewhere. Heck, you can go to left blogs and websites and search in vain for news that 6 U.S. soldiers died in Iraq.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot" for today:
