Al Franken’s Completely Radioactive

    The latest polling from Minnesota shows Al Franken falling far behind in his bid to upset Norm Coleman. It seems that his salacious writings, his record of lawbreaking and hypocrisy, and his negative tone is taking its toll. With that in mind, Franken has gotten his wife — whose struggle with alcohol make her a deeply sympathetic figure — to reintroduce him and testify to | Read More »

    Edwards Coverage versus Palin Coverage

    As I was watching Governor Palin’s family parade onto the stage after her speech at the convention, it came to mind that the coverage of Palin and her daughter seem to be completely different than that of the coverage of Edwards.

    John Edwards comes out of hiding…

    Where’s the outrage!? Let’s put a stop to this.

    Edwards Redefines the Term “Hyprocisy”

    “I think this president has shown a remarkable disrespect for his office, for the moral dimensions of leadership, for his friends, for his wife, for his precious daughter. It is breathtaking to me the level to which that disrespect has risen.” John Edwards in 1999 on Bill Clinton

    The rise of an unknown and the lesson for the Presidential campaign

    The biggest lesson of the John Edwards its only sex story comes from Edwards own mouth “I went from being a senator, a young senator, to being considered for vice president, running for president, being a vice presidential candidate and becoming a national public figure,” he told ABC’s “Nightline” on Friday. “All of which fed a self-focus, egotism, a narcissism that leads you to believe | Read More »

    What John Edwards did wasn’t so bad

    Let’s put things in perspective: Were John Edwards’ actions really so bad? First, the woman never accused him of sexual harrassment or unwanted advances. He was not old enough to be her father, and he was not in any supervisory capacity over her. The affair didn’t occur until after his wife’s cancer had gone into remission, and furthermore, he’s probably not even the father of | Read More »
