Nobody's Perfect?


Crazy thought but I think the Batman movie has done as well as it has because people are hungry for a little moral absolutism, not religious per se, but someone who has a code of sorts that they live by. Not a saint either, but someone who doesn't just shout the rhetoric but lives their principles.

I've heard many people say you can't expect politicians to be perfect. Since when did not fucking some other woman while your wife is going through cancer treatment become the standard of perfect? Of course these guys aren't perfect. They are highly ego-driven, cavalier, giant ladder-climbers, greedy, at times morally ambiguous but can't just one of them channel their big swinging dicks into something positive like reforming the healthcare system? It's like an investment really, solve the healthcare crisis, retire and get more free pussy than you ever dreamed of, I might just be first in line to thank him.

I am an independent who tends to vote democrat and definitely will not be voting Republican any time soon and I am so miffed that given the current political climate, John Edwards lusted after the Presidential nomination and surely would have taken it if he could have, knowing that he had this skeleton, already partially discovered, just waiting to jump out of the closet. Good thing it came out before he was potentially a running mate or you know what we would have had another 4-8 years of? Helping big oil get bigger.

I feel for his wife, people say she's probably so embarrassed and I say she has nothing to be ashamed of, this is his mistake and it reflects on him alone.

Also, let me add, how fucking stupid are these guys. They know(on both parties) that people are just waiting and watching for them to screw up in a big way. Someone's going to find out. And yes, the same traits that get you elected get you laid but can't one of the just refrain.

I think to get anyone in office who actually lives by the code they profess we are going to have to either elect a woman or give the guys that medication they give sexual predators to dumb down their libido and render them semi-harmless. Maybe then the mistresses and airport bathroom handjobs will finally taper off.

How fucked up is this? I hope to hell his poor, long suffering wife has an excellent lawyer and leaves this ass-hat on the curb where he belongs. While his wife is fighting CANCER. There'll be a nice, cozy corner in hell waiting just for him.

I am by no means excusing this crappy behaviour, but I think that the same testosterone overdose that drives this 'think with your dick' behaviour also drives the ambition and ruthlessness which makes it possible for them to take on the role of politician at that level.

Sad it may be, but I believe it to be true.

It's a very rare thing to find a politician of any colour, on either side of The Pond, who can do one without the other. Even Mr Meek-and-Mild Nice Guy himself, John Major - and that came as a shock to everyone. At least he had the grace to keep it quiet.

That whole situation is extra yucky since she has uncurable cancer. But I totally agree with your whole post.

I am so sick of the "Heartfelt Resignation Speech While My Supportive Wife Stands by My Side" news clip.

Maybe Mrs. Edwards can stab him in the kidneys while he cries.

I couldn't agree with your post more. The guy is a moron. But worse than that had he become the nominee and this blown up just before the election, the US would be facing another 4-8 years with a Republican government. What a selfish bastard.

Dude, Thank God he didn't get the nomination. Oh, I mean, so seriously, that would have been disastrous.

Yeah, you know, if I were Elizabeth, I would hand him his walking papers. Here she is fighting for her life and he's off screwing someone else? He destroyed any good feelings I had about him.

I don't know why these guys can't keep it zipped. Seriously.

Peace - D

Pretty fucking stupid is the answer to your question. But more than stupid, arrogant. They never think they're going to get caught.
