This is the year when Democrats -- especially the good ones who are nationally recognized -- should be showing America their best side.
Ummm. Just not today.
Cheating on your wife while she is busy having cancer is clearly not the best moment for John Edwards. I never thought I'd hear myself saying this, but thank God he's not the nominee.
In an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he did have an affair with 44-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.
Edwards also denied he was the father of Hunter's baby girl, Frances Quinn, although the one-time Democratic Presidential candidate said he has not taken a paternity test.
So, he "didn't love her." That's gotta make Elizabeth feel just great about the matter. And his denial about being the father of the baby doesn't exactly carry a lot of weight since he lied previously about the affair.
Message to Obama: Keep your fucking dick in your trousers. This shit makes me nervous.
And it makes me furiously angry that Edwards would not endorse marriage equality while campaigning, and while cheating on his wife. Why? Oh yeah, because us queers are the immoral ones. I keep forgetting.
