But his daddy worked in a meeel!

Yet one more reason why John Edwards is one of the biggest slimebags ever to come out of North Carolina:  caught visiting his mistress and babymama while his wife has terminal cancer.

I guess there really are “two Americas,” Silky Pony.  There’s the one where I stay faithful to my wife and don’t know how the hell I’m going to have enough money to make it to the next paycheck…and the one where John Edwards lectures us, then goes back to his fifteen thousand square foot mansion over in Chapel Hill, and gets a woman pregnant while his wife’s recovering from a double mastectomy.

Looks like you’ll have a lot more time to enjoy that palatial estate of yours, Breck Girl.  You just got blown off the list for Obama’s VP nominee…by your own libido and the National Enquirer.  Awesome.

Supposedly the Enquirer has pictures which will be coming out over the next couple of days.  And before anybody screams “tabloid journalism,” this story has been bubbling under the radar for months, especially in NC political circles.  It’s no less tabloid–and probably better-sourced–than a fair number of stories run by the “legitimate” media.

    What exactly has John Edwards lectured us about? Or is that just a generalized statement? I’m not trying to instigate anything. I really am curious.

    One of Edwards’ catchphrases in the 2004 campaign was “two Americas.” Wikiquote has him saying this in an undated 2004 stump speech:

    “Today, under George W. Bush, there are two Americas, not one: One America that does the work, another that reaps the reward. One America that pays the taxes, another America that gets the tax breaks. One America – middle-class America – whose needs Washington has long forgotten, another America – narrow-interest America – whose every wish is Washington’s command. One America that is struggling to get by, another America that can buy anything it wants, even a Congress and a president.”

    Now, that’s pretty typical political boilerplate. Nothing odd there. But where things get interesting is when you realize that Edwards made his bank largely on lawsuits against gynecologists, the massive awards from which have skyrocketed malpractice insurance and left many parts of the country–including here in North Carolina, Edwards’ adopted home–with a severe shortage of OB/GYNs. Think that might hurt the people in his “other America”?

    Add on to that the fact that Edwards has built, out near Chapel Hill not far from where I sit now, a mansion of over 15,000 square feet. And that’s just the main house. The grounds contain a guest house and a “recreation building” with pool, basketball court, squash court, etc. It’s the largest residential dwelling in Orange County as confirmed by public tax records.

    This guy’s a flaming hypocrite of the first order, and word here in NC is that Kerry’s VP offer in 2004 came along at just the right time because he wasn’t going to get re-elected–the state had gotten very tired of his act.

    I don’t ask him to live in some housing project in crack-ridden downtown Durham. He can do what he wants with his money. But when he’s got tens of millions of dollars under his mattress, don’t come grabbing at MY wallet and tell me I’m not paying enough taxes.
