WyoWoman BS: Integrity + Frailty? John Edwards (92* d) RE: BS: Integrity + Frailty? John Edwards 08 Aug 08

What they do on their own time is, I guess, their own business. However,John Edwards, you arrogant bastid, don't hold yourself up as a fine example of morality and then pull this crap. And don't try to gussy it up: You cheated on your partner just like any other mortal in such circumstances. Elizabeth is a classy, smart woman and she deserved better. What makes it such an affront is that you traded on her illness and on your beautiful devotion to a very sick wife. Your relationship, the two of you, inspired millions of people to aspire to that kind of support and closeness.

What hubris.

I agree with Sorcha, however. As long as we keep being attracted to alpha males with the win-at-all-costs instincts it takes to succeed in this warped system, we tend to end up with men with enormous ego needs that often are handily filled by the young, taut and easily impressed.

I work so hard not to be cynical, but sometimes, other folks don't exactly make it easy for me.
