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.
