and if you are wondering why, I will tell you after the comic.
Isaiah also does comics for all the community newsletters. Tuesdays is Hilda's Mix. But to have it ready to go, it has to be turned in no later than Monday evening. Which means Isaiah caught Barack Obama and John Boehner on TV last night after he had already done his comic for Hilda's Mix so he went ahead and did this one.
So the cesspool of John Edwards. For any waking up late, Mr. Edwards was once a U.S. Senator. He gave up a run for re-election to be John Kerry's running mate in 2004. John Kerry was the Democratic Party's presidential nominee and Mr. Edwards was the vice presidential nominee.
Mr. Edwards just knew that 2008 would be his time. And he assembled a staff and started early.
He used his wife's cancer to block off a great deal of criticism (she did the same).
Mr. Edwards' affairs go back to at least 2002. But he did something really stupid and offensive. He took up with Rielle Hunter (I am not insulting Ms. Hunter, I am sure she is a fine person) and they had a child together.
But he did not tell the public. And the skelteon in the closet was just waiting to emerge should Mr. Edwards be the presidential or vice presidential nominee in 2008. Mr. Edwards case is now set for October to determine whether he misused campaign contributions to cover up his mistress or to provide for her care. However, the judge has declared that he will push back the start date if there are any problems. If he pushes the start date back, you are looking at January.
As I pointed out some time ago, the White House has conveyed to John Edwards that they would prefer his matters be taken care of before 2012 due to it being an election year.
With the Anthony Weiner scandal and now the Oregon Democrat, the last thing the party needs is more sleeze from Mr. Edwards.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot" for Tuesday:
