John Edwards once again does not know whether he is going by foot or on horseback. We would have been screwed if he had been the guy in charge of "one if by land, two if by sea."
John Edwards, who yesterday demanded Democratic candidates return any campaign donations from Rupert Murdoch and News Corp., himself earned at least $800,000 for a book published by one of the media mogul's companies....
The campaign didn't respond to a question from The Post about whether it was hypocritical for Edwards to take money from News Corp. while calling for other candidates not to.
The campaign did not respond, I am sure, because it regarded the question as rhetorical. And who wouldn't?
His accomplishments as a politician notwithstanding, Edwards continues to wax sanctimonious from a position of moral and actual inconsistency. Trial lawyers do this all the time, because their pronouncements are understood as nothing more than the required zealous representation of their client, and in any case are isolated from prior inconsistency by the rules of evidence. Edwards does not seem to understand that Americans want their sanctimony confined to the courtroom and the church sanctuary, and only in the first case will they accept it from an overt hypocrite.

A short recon of what’s out there that might draw your attention, updated throughout the day...so check back often.
Looks like the shallow ambulance-chasing pretty boy is starting to hemorrhage pretty badly in the polls. Even Iowa, where he's lived for the past year, and his natal state of South Carolina, now look like they're going for Chillary or B. Hussein Obama.
It's all about Johnny Hairdo.
They live down the street, their kids attend my daughter's school, and they're said to be planning to homeschool the pair because they'll be on the campaign trail. Damn the treatments the wife might need ... this is an all expense paid exercise in narcissism.
