John Edwards calling former staffers asking for forgiveness

 Well what do you know, another boy on the hill caught cheating, well blow me down…..flagranny2

DENVER – John Edwards is burning up the phone lines, begging former aides and backers to forgive him for lying about his affair – but hearing their rage instead.

In my opinion what John Edwards did was wrong in every way but I don’t get it when a Senator or Congressman is caught cheating they chastise that person and treat them like they are the first Senator or Congressman to have had an affair and I would bet my last dollar there isn’t one on “The Hill” who hasn’t cheated yet they are the first to point fingers. 

Edwards was suppose to speak at the Democratic National Convention but was taken off the list of speakers because of his actions.  Then there is Senator Kennedy who can do anything and everyone thinks he is God.  If you or me had done what he did while at Chappaquiddick we would be spending the rest of our life in prison.  Then in the Anita Hill case Kennedy served on the panel in judgement of Clarence Thomas. what a joke that was.  The men and women on “The Hill” choose when to be oblivious of one situation but are out to get another………flagranny2 (FYI I’m neither Democrate nor Republican)
