commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Inside the Edwards Trainwreck……the book ‘The Politician’….

I had to post that headline from PoliticalWire…..He, he, he…..

Here’s the piece…..

The Wall Street Journal gets an early copy of Andrew Young’s tell-all  book about working as an aide to John Edwards for nearly a decade.

A few choice highlights from The Politician:

The locals: Edwards is an Atkins-dieter who hated making appearances at state fairs where “fat rednecks try to shove food down my face. I know I’m the people’s senator, but do I have to hang out with them?”

The hair: “Naturally thick and lustrous, his hair was a fixation with him. He insisted on using just one kind of shampoo — HairTec Thick & Strong Shampoo for Fine, Fragile Hair.”

The confrontation: Elizabeth Edwards answered a cell phone call to hear Rielle Hunter who “launched into a romantic monologue.” Elizabeth confronted her husband who “confessed to having had a one-night stand but didn’t say with whom.” He called Hunter in front of his wife to end it, but later called her back to say he didn’t mean it.

The video: Young describes his discovery of a compromising videotape of Edwards and a naked, pregnant lover: “It was like watching a traffic pileup occur in slow motion — it was repelling but also transfixing.”

I was for him for VP with Kerry…But after that things went downward….The guy was just too slick…..
