I don't see those two ever divorcing, even if they were the unhappiest people on the planet. I also don't care one bit about what they do in their private lives.

Yes. When you consider how many "highbrow" news sources have gone tabloid, how fair is it really to pooh pooh the National Enquirer?

Actually, his love-child IS an alien.

^Gee what a shock that Ann chimed in

http://www.nationalenquirer.com/john...elebrity/65226

A NATIONAL ENQUIRER investigation has uncovered John Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter – the mother of his “love child” – has been secretly receiving $15,000 a month as part of an elaborate cover-up orchestrated by the former presidential contender.

The money is being funneled to Hunter by a wealthy colleague who was closely tied to the Edwards’ campaign. This same man is also shoveling cash to Edwards’ pal and former aide Andrew Young – who tried to take the heat off the ex-Senator by claiming he is the father of Rielle’s baby.

And The ENQUIRER is also exclusively revealing that Rielle’s baby is a girl named Frances Quinn Hunter and was born at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

“A super-rich pal – who was closely involved with the campaign finances – is helping John. It’s likely this man doesn’t know all the dirty details of John’s extramarital affair, but is acting out of loyalty and is not asking a lot of questions – only writing the checks,” revealed a source very close to the situation.

As a former, and very vocal, Edwards supporter, I am sick over this. The Enquirer is all lawyered up and articles that have been denied in the past often turn out to be true.

Cheating on your wife when she's terminally ill. That is so very very wrong. Especially when that wife is one of THE greatest women on the planet...

It appears the people who thought Edwards was a slick phony were right, and I was wrong.

I don't know why you or anyone else is sick over this or anything else.

the only thing here that has failed?
, is expectations.


I have no idea what happened between John Edwards and this woman.

I do not believe he loves his dying wife one ioda less for any thing he may have done. How many of you have watched a loved one waste away?

I have.

If Edwards is guilty of anything, he is guilty of being human.

If you curse him, condemn him
you curse yourself, condemn yourself.


Contrary to what many people seem to believe
these peoples' behavior have nothing to do with us or our relationships,
(yes, that is amazing, isn't it)
because this may have happened - has no consequence on whether your partner will be faithful to you or if we should expect our partners to be faithful to us.

We should be faithful. And we should behave in a way that our partners have every opportunity and desire to be faithful to us.

Should any of us end up being human, and doing a "human thing" I hope that thing is less significant than our relationship.

If that "human thing" is more important than your relationship,
than we know how much value you give your relationship
and how much value you give a fuck.

I guess the goddamned batman isn't human then. Cause the goddamned batman wouldn't cheat on his terminally ill wife. He would grapple hook the hell out of that illness.

He might not love his dying wife one iota less- but it could appear that he loves his appendage, and himself, more. Sure he's human, but so was Newt Gingrich when he served divorce papers on his wife when she lay dying of cancer.. I guess.

Some people value fidelity, doesn't make them wrong for doing so. Especially fidelity when your spouse is terminally ill. Somehow that just doesn't seem like it's just "a fuck". Especially when you father a child-if indeed he has.

I'm not sick over it but that doesn't mean I can't be disappointed in some way either. I'm disappointed but at the same time I'm not-and not surprised. Keep expectations low and you're never surprised. But at the same time I don't think it's too high of an expectation to expect a husband of a dying woman to keep it in his pants (or the wife of a dying man).

How fucked up are you people if you are questioning whether or not it is appropriate to 'be disappointed' with a man that (allegedly) had an affair and fathered a child while his wife struggled with a terminal illness?

"You people"? As far as I can tell the only one questioning that is deep

I said I keep expectations low and don't idealize/deify people, let alone politicians.. that's all-a survival technique I learned a long time ago. But for me personally, absolutely not-you should not have an affair on your terminally ill wife/husband.

I love that this story was ignored by the "right wing media" with such conservative outposts like the LA Times instructing its bloggers not to mention it.

It's a fair point - witness the way some leftie FYM'rs prefer to set aside or ignore allegations regarding Clinton's cheating and philandering, while allegations regarding Clarence Thomas's similar misdeameours are used as a stick to bash him with 15 years later.

BUT having said that it could be argued that right wingers who disgrace themselves in private family matters are hypocritical, liberals less so as they don't make such a big deal of 'family values', so the media may be correct in focussing more on the misdeeds of right wingers, as the public has a right to know if, for example, some Republican who builds a political career out of attacking gays is himself a promiscuous homosexual.

Please....less of the nuance.

Judgemental condemnations are the FYM way.

Interesting, I'm not sure if I've ever seen anyone bash Thomas in here, I'll have to look out for it...
