People like that aren't worth thinking about. I'm not a big fan of Kerry-Edwards politics, but I have two aunts who've both had breast cancer (one before she was 30) and I would NEVER wish that on someone or make some joke about it.

I know that she will get fast treatment, because after all, her husband has spent the last 20 years suing doctors, so he probably has all their phone numbers on speed-dial. But then again, he had to just to put food on the table for his kids, he doesn't have much money at all, I heard him say once or twice or five-hundred times that his father works at a mill, I guess if he says it enough, he thinks we'll forget that he milked $ 70 million out of the healthcare sector

When you're overweight, your chances of breast cancer increase, and she is very overweight, the news isn't too surprising.

I just wonder what doctor will even operate on her, the risk of Johnny suing them seems to be too much, especially now that he has all this free time on his hands

GOP Catholic, it is true that being overweight increases a woman's chances of breast cancer. But the indelicate way you have pointed this out, and the rest of your post, is highly insensitive and downright meanspirited.

You are on my Ignore List for life.

Just in case there's some small chance that you actually thought this was acceptable, GOPCatholic, I've come back (briefly!) from my wee vacation to tell you that it's not.

You can apologize, lay low, and contribute your thoughts in some productive and diginified manner, or you can be asked to leave.

Up to you.

In addition to what pax said, I would like to remind the rest of you...

...that comments like this are not appropriate, regardless of what another person had said. Just because one says something incredibly inappropriate does not give cause for the FAQ rules to not be in effect. Two wrongs don't make a right.

please... you are not helping. you are simply making those of us who are republicans, catholics, and voted for bush look bad by some of your rants. there are plenty of legit reasons to take a swing at john edwards. his wife getting cancer is NOT one of them, and you should be ashamed of yourself.

I don't apologize for stating facts.

Fact : He has spent decades suing doctors, while pocketing $ tens of millions.

Fact : Overweight people have a higher risk of breast cancer.

Fact : Many doctors are apprehensive about treating certain patients, especially the wife of the new posterboy for millionaire trial lawyers.

My only sympathy goes to the cancer patients who have to travel farther to see doctors now, since so many doctors have gone out of practice as they can no longer afford the malpractice insurance, it's hard for doctors to afford the insurance when the insurance company is busy cutting million-dollar checks for Edwards. Tort reform is coming, Edwards's days of taking doctors to the cleaners will soon be over with. I know the Kerry sheep won't like that, but the Kerry'ites learned on Tuesday - they're in the minority.

Go back and read Pax's advice.


Remember, you must think through the tone and message conveyed in your posts in addition to the actually words you use.
