Rielle Hunter sort of spills the beans on John Edwards

Quote of the day, from Jeff Taylor at The Meck Deck:

Voters of North Carolina need to look at themselves in the mirror and ask how it is that they completely fell for a man — electing him a United States senator — so flawed as John Edwards, a man who would so completely fall for a shambles like Rielle Hunter.

And that goes double for the boys and girls at McClatchy who allowed themselves to get swept up in John Edwards fever simply because he punched all their liberal do-gooder buttons.

He’s talking about the story of the day, which is not healthcare “reform” (that ranks a close second) but instead His Royal Phoniness’ (ex-?) mistress’ “exclusive” interview with GQ, an interview in which she not only said some pretty strange things, but also posed for a couple of – as Jeff accurately describes them – bizarre photos.

It would be so nice if this issue would sort of, like, go away, but I know that’s not going to happen – especially since everyone is cashing in by telling varying versions about the fall of John Edwards, from Andrew Young, to Elizabeth Edwards, to Rielle Hunter. This only means one thing: Expect a response from Edwards soon, probably in the form of a book titled something like “John Edwards: My Side of the Story”. In fact, knowing Mr. Vanity himself, it’ll be a multi-volume series devoted to trying to explain/spin his way out of everything, with a little fake self-deprecation and “aw shucks” Southern boy charm thrown in for good measure.

I hope I’m wrong.

    If you’re interested, read, or listen to (as I did) the new book, Game Change. It was quite entertaining to hear the story of John Edwards and his naivety as he brought Rielle along on his campaign trail. Very exciting once his wife met her. Everyone seemed to know what was going on except his wife, of course, who had slowed down on the trail due to her fight with cancer. They don’t paint a nice picture of her, but when she sees Rielle for the first time at a function, running around meeting people as if she were John’s wife, she flips, and sees right through it all. Rielle was “hired” to shoot web videos. Watch some and you’ll see the man’s charm.

    And now she is saying she cried for hours after seeing those disturbing photos–I mean, pose with your hiney showing in a big pile of her baby’s stuffed animals? And when you take your pants off in front of a camera and give the man a look-see, you are shocked when those are the photos he uses? Give me a break. She should be given a letter A to wear and he should have his pride and joy, his ‘crowning beauty.’, ‘Breck Girl’ hair shaved off. Then, along with the Big Zer-O, Pelosi and Reid, he should be ridden out of town on a rail tarred and feathered.

    He thought, right until the end, that he could get into Clinton’s or Obama’s close ranks and even while word was getting out about his baby with Rielle, he still thought he could help sway the Dem election. I wonder what he’ll do now, or is that already set?
