BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD
OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
AN OPEN LETTER TO JOHN EDWARDS 
8th-Aug-2008 04:17 pm
Uh Uh sez Snoop
Dear Mr. Edwards,
I have generally found you likable and reasonably well put together. Had you been chosen as the Democratic nominee for the Presidency, I'd have most certainly voted for you. There's just one problem.

You're an arrogant, lying motherfucker. You thought that you would be able to keep your little affair under the radar and that you were 10' tall & bulletproof enough that had you secured the nomination, this wouldn't have come to pass. This shit always comes out, Johhnny boy - you're no different. Given the way the GOP revells in the notion that they are the party of morals and values (what the fuck ever) they would have sniffed this one out like a fart in a car had you gotten more than a toe in the door. You would have handed us all McCain on a silver platter and consigned us to 4 MORE years of abject failure in the wake of the scandal, and the thought that you could have gotten away with it makes it bad. What makes it worse if not wholly unbearable is the fact that you cared more about your political power and aspiration than you did about the American people.

I don't give two shits that you fucked around on your wife, that's between you and her. There are all kinds of relationships, John - you could have discussed your needs with your wife long before you made the choices you made and who knows, maybe she would have sanctioned it. It's not my relationship, I don't care. I know we all make mistakes and all that rot, that's not what pisses me off. What pisses me off is that you somehow decided you were too cool for school and that you'd get away with such an enormous gamble.

Lastly, your opposition to same sex marriage - even though your wife and eldest child have campaigned for equal rights in this area. You would deny me the opportunity to legally wed the love of my life and allow us the same legal rights as you enjoy and take for granted. I deserve to be married to the love of my life while you shit all over yours and publically humiliate your entire family and those who believed in you.

Yes, we all make mistakes. Yes, you're human. All that having been said, motherfuck you John Edwards.

I hope that beautiful wife of yours kicks you right in the fleshy patch where your goddamned balls used to be.

NO love no more,
jesus_h_biscuit

Beautiful...if only the object of the affair was a TV...WE COULD MAKE EDDIE MURPHY COMPARISONS.

Amen to that!

Well, at least he stepped aside before he got too far into the primary process. Hell, I thought back then he just wanted to wait for a cabinet appointment instead - we've seen that an attorney general can basically get away with doing ANYTHING.

Quite disappointing....

Okay, now I don't really give a flying foxtrot uniform charlie kilo about John Edwards. But ABCNNBBCBS is running this all over the place like it is the hot story of the year.

Folks, you are being CONDITIZED!

Back in early 2001, when the US Government was already informing other governments of plans to invade Afghanistan in October 2001, the corporate media had turned the sordid tale of Gary Condit and Chandra Levy into the one and only story for the TV sets of America. There were very few reports of the war being planned for Afghanistan, so when the invasion actually happened, right after the convenient events of 9-11 angered America into a war-fever, it was a surprise to nobody but the American people.

Well, here we are again. The TV sets are tossing John Edwards' love-child right into our faces non-stop, with only the briefest of pauses to shout "RUSSIA INVADES!" so it doesn't look like they are hiding anything from you.

But think. The fact that John Edwards knocked up his mistress is not something that actually affects your life in any material way. It's tabloid scandal at best, yet to ABCNNBBCBS, this is the important news to shove at you. But the outbreak of war gets barely an insert and a screen crawl, and those are actually lies! Russia did NOT invade. The initiating event was the shelling of a Russian installation, presumably by the Georgians, but in fact we really do not know.

But a real war with Russia does affect your life in very material ways. The US is already at economic death's door from the existing wars. Once again we see Israel working to kick off a war they will expect our sons and daughters to clean up.

And the other side actually has nuclear and biological weapons of mass destruction, and faces an enemy they already know has the willingness to use such weapons unless preemptively attacked.

Yeah, and they'll probably get their asses handed to them like they did by the Chechnyans.

Georgia was interested in joining NATO, but didn't get around to it.. that didn't stop the US from shipping lots of weapons and uniforms over though.. and they got plenty of on the job training in Iraq.

It's been a cold war ever since the mid 2000's. Big whoop.

I never knew the chasm of respect that once separated John Edwards and Paris Hilton could shrink so much within a 48 hour period.
8th-Aug-2008 09:17 pm (UTC)
Bravo! Well said, Jude! Thanks for saying it so eloquently, as you always do.
8th-Aug-2008 09:22 pm (UTC)
I love that icon. And I love this post. To itty bits.
8th-Aug-2008 09:30 pm (UTC)
John Edwards can go fuck himself now. See what I wrote.... ;)
8th-Aug-2008 09:30 pm (UTC)
It's hot here. I just got in from being in the summer sun, working the earth, and I'm too pooped to write something about this fuckwad on my own journal. So, I just went to my Friends Page, knowing Li'l Jude would have already been all over this, and had John Edwards' lily white ass on the spit, roasting nicely over an open fire.

Fuck this arrogant prick. I hate HATE being lied to, but honey, that is what politicians DO. They DON'T care about anything but political gain and POWER. They don't care if you and I - and the rest of the country - fell into the hands of the Republicans; they don't care if you and your guy love one another and your love is real. He has taken advantage of his wife, his marriage, the sanctity of it all, while throwing it in your face that two dicks don't belong together, the only sanctioned union is this guy, his wife, and the pussy he gets on the side, for which God will undoubtedly forgive him because he's really sorry. He didn't even LOVE this side order of 'tang. That makes it ok. He is not sorry he lied. He's sorry he got caught. THEY DON'T CARE. How long must we sit here and be bamboozled time and time and time again by these political hacks, liars ALL? You fucked; fess up. They'll find out anyway!

If the Missus stands by his side, arms linked, she looking up at him like he's the head and leader of the household like a frikking overlord, and they'll get over this together, I swear, I'll puke. She's got enough shit to deal with.

Asshole.

OK, so maybe I'm not too hot to rant a bit.

Thanks for the space in which to do so.

"** The interview airs tonight on ABC.

** According to people close to the Edwardses, Elizabeth Edwards has secured a primetime speaking role at the Democratic National Convention; John Edwards, as of this point, does not, and people close to him think he will beg off and not attend the convention so as not to distract Obama. Obama aides would not say whether either Edwards is on the schedule.

** No comment from Edwards's spokespeople."

Since she was one of the two I've always liked (and the main reason I ended up supporting *him*, I hope that's true. She deserves a chance in the spotlight to talk about healthcare, gay rights, or exactly what variety of douchebag it is she married, for as long and in as graphic detail as she damn well pleases.
9th-Aug-2008 12:19 am (UTC) - My new bumper sticker: When Edwards lied, no one died
I'm bummed. I supported Edwards originally, & still vastly prefer his politics to Obama's (or Clinton's). I *adore* Elizabeth Edwards, and am sorry to see her dragged through this.

We don't know if this is actually a surprise to her, & we don't know what their vows to each other included - this could be total betrayal, or maybe they had an arrangement (a la, I'm presuming, the Clintons). But I'm sure that he was never supposed to get exposed (though these rumors have floated around for quite some time).

As far as the marriage equality, I always read Elizabeth & Cate speaking up for equality as, in part, JRE saying, "look, the U.S. isn't ready to elect a president who supports equality, but I'm with you." Which this nation is not - it's moving closer, faster than I ever would have expected, but as an earlier poster said, we'd end up talking about marriage instead of critical issues in foreign policy, for example.

Yeah, I'm not happy. Maybe it's in part because I'd heard the rumors long enough for this to not be a surprise. But I just can't get righteous about it, not when there's so many much more important issues to deal with.

I tend to agree.

... maybe he just didn't want to get dick cancer....


*decorates his Gucci handbasket for the trip to hell*
9th-Aug-2008 03:00 am (UTC) - I am actually hurt and angry about Edwards
Serious!
The big reason why I really felt good about this guy was...
1. His true working class roots.
2. During his campaign the biggest issue he was promoting was helping the poor in America.
Well so much for a Champion Of The Poor in a Democratic Administration.
*sign*
BestRegards,
Pete

It's not a direct reply to your post, but to some of the last ones you've placed on LJ. Sharp mind you have and I like that. I need more time to go back through your LJ a bit more.

HUGS
