Links: Things I’ve Been Reading

Sunday, October 18th, 2009
Since I’ve been lax on the updates, here’s a list of things I’ve been reading:

The Edwards Shocker

Friday, August 8th, 2008

John Edwards… a hypocrite and liar? Say it ain’t so!

Forgive me for not being surprised that a politician engaged in sleazy acts and then lied about them in an effort to further his ambitions.  But at least we no longer have to listen to his patronizing BS.

I do wonder what took the “respectable” media so long get an answer from Edwards. Quite the day for American journalists when the National Enquirer beats them to a story by over six months.

Update: Matt Welch posts Edwards’ reaction (circa 1999) to Bill Clinton’s cheating ways:

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.
