JOHN EDWARDS WANTED HIS WIFE TO DIE CONSTANTLY: The New York Times obliterated John Edwards this weekend, with its report about how he’s preparing to FINALLY be like, “yeah that’s mah baby.” Most terrifying part: “In the [book] proposal, which The New York Times examined, [former aide Andrew] Young says that he assisted the affair by setting up private meetings between Mr. Edwards and Ms. Hunter. He wrote that Mr. Edwards once calmed an anxious Ms. Hunter by promising her that after his wife died, he would marry her in a rooftop ceremony in New York with an appearance by the Dave Matthews Band.” Ace job, bro!

  1. Wow. Johnny may just want to head to Argentina or the Appalachian Trail for the long term. Then again, his house is so fucking huge he & Elizabeth can live together yet not see each other for days at a time. Or ever, as he is probably wishing right about now.

    Still not quite up to Neut’s standard of delivering divorce papers to cancer-stricken wife laying in hospital bed.

  2. “Ah am the son of a mill worker, and mah baby son is a bastard. But as soon as mah wife dies I’ll make an honest woman of his mother.”
    A slight derivation on the Strom Thurmond, “As soon as ah die my bastard child will be acknowledged,” tactic.

  3. Way to go John, rocking out with your cock out.

    On a side note, I always thought I was too old to have a crush, but Elizabeth Edwards damn that it is an awesome woman. John don’t want you I do.

  4. Yeah, can marry her as soon as the old ball and chain kicks the bucket… or you could have, you know, wrapped it, inspiring the young’uns to pursue safer sex rather than being the Democratic Levi Johnston with the pretty hair.

  5. [Andrew Young] said Mr. Edwards pleaded with him to accept responsibility falsely, saying that would reduce the story to one of an aide’s infidelity.

    That’s the “other duties, as assigned” part of your job description, Andrew.

  6. [re=415212]JoeMac[/re]: Someone won the Wonkette Win Post of the Afternoon (approximately) a few weeks back with a great comment to the effect of: That baby is the grandson of a mill worker.

    It still makes me smile.

  7. “marry her in a rooftop ceremony in New York with an appearance by the Dave Matthews Band”

    Yeah, that’s a line I use often. Except I use my best Barry White voice and claim I will fly in naked on one of the Jonas Brothers.

  8. Can someone please tell me how to pronounce that woman’s name? Rielle? Is that pronounced Wry-lee, or Ree-elle? I have no idea.

    But, seriously, Dave Matthews? That’s very 1997 of you, John. I think Jack Johnson would be the modern equivalent.

  9. Just imagine how beautiful that ceremony would have been: flowers, sunset over the Manhattan skyline, the sweet strains of “Crash into Me” as a few hundred frat boys get in touch with their sensitive sides by drunkenly weeping while thinking about the good times they’ve had with cheap beer and roofies… I’m sorry, was I talking?

    I guess all I meant to say was that I would totally have that man’s bastard.

  10. [re=415221]WadISay[/re]: Andrew Young is a rat bastard too, when you think about it. “Oh John, I love ya, I’ll work for ya, only you can save Amurrica….what, campaign over? Okay, it’s tell-all ka-ching time!”

    [re=415212]JoeMac[/re]: Agreed that EE is charming and intelligent. But her “don’t-mention-Lisa-Druck-in-my-presence” book tour (and the media’s acquiescence in it) dampened my ardor.

    However, Edwards himself is way worse.

  11. Aw John. New York rooftop wedding with Dave Matthews? That’s no way for a southern boy to act. Give that lady a proper church wedding. Emceed by Larry the Cable Guy.

    Git ‘er done!!

  12. [re=415204]Serolf Divad[/re]: I like to think Springsteen would have baulked at something with this thin coat of sleaze all over it. But obviously, I have no idea. But I like to think he would turn it down. Also, perhaps Ms. Hunter is a big fan of the Dave Matthews Band.

    My great grandmother had her three children with a married man, and married him after his wife died. Although there’s no record of how horrible he was about his wife behind her back, so far as I know. Plus, he wasn’t a politician anyway, he ran a shop, so few people would have cared. With all the publicity these things get, and how much easier it is to acquire information about scandals, you’d think a politician might think before attempting an illicit affair. No matter what the romance novels say, one is actually able to control these things, unless one has a psychiatric disorder.

    How does one die constantly?
    Attend a Celeste Dione concert, which is followed by endless encores? Just asking.

  15. [re=415235]V572625694[/re]: I sort of assume that the dedication page of Young’s book will be something like, Here’s to me, never applying for the position of “trusted aide” again.

  16. I woulda thought he was more a Hootie and the Blowfish man. But Rielle, yup, Dave Mathews all the way, I bet she still has the flame dancer bumper sticker on her Saab.

  17. [re=415261]Way Cool Larry[/re]: He thinks he’s “or what.” But he’s as gay as gay can be. Speaking of which, wouldn’t a tape of Carrie Prejean engaging in non-opposite sex with, say, Megan Fox be unbelievably hot?

  18. This guy is an incredible douchebag. I love this country though, how is not paying hush money through a third party supporter of yours to your mistress not be anything but a federally prosecutable crime?

  19. Rielle Hunter, in that much-publicized picture of her in hideous silk blouse and beads, looks like Patricia Cornwell but less attractive. I had no idea her real name was Lisa Jo Druck. She’s a videographer not a movie star. And she has been involved in horse murders!!! Having an affair with a married man, I can forgive. Murdering racehorses for insurance money…that I will not abide.

  20. [re=415261]Way Cool Larry[/re]: I saw that and had the same reaction. I love that his shirt says “any questions?” Yeah, pal, here’s one – Lafayette wants to know when you want to smoke his beef.

  21. [re=415270]I-man[/re]: No, no, I must advise you, you are free in this great country of ours to pay people to say things that are not true, for the purpose of creating a false impression about you. Or your product, in which case its called advertising. If it were illegal, he would not have done it, in which case we would not be able to enjoy this creamy smooth, oozing, luscious scandal.

  22. And to save money on Elizabeth’s funeral, he could have dumped her body in the Hudson on the way to his baby mamma’s wedding.

    Way to stay classy, Johnny.

  23. Rush Limbaug: “…and this socialist half-breed muslin is going to-”

    Kanye West: “I like where you’re going, and I’m gonna let you finish, but John Edwards is the biggest douche of all time. Of all time!

  24. [re=415355]DemmeFatale[/re]: Yeah, it’s like you’re on a train and you look out the window to the left and see a parallel track with two trains colliding head-on. There but for the grace of the switch-man…

  25. For the son of a mill worker, JohnBoy’s sure laid a lot of pipe. Mix up @ vocational school?

    I thought he was a lawyer…. turns out he’s just a lay-er. Common mistake…. either way, somebody always gets fucked.

  26. Everyone involved in this is story is an equal-opportunity douche. Rielle Druck for being a whore to begin with and a whore to end with (the article mentions that she noticeably tilted the kid’s head toward the cameras on a recent trip to the courthouse); Young for going along with it and then cashing in when the gravy train ran dry; John for, well, EVERYTHING; and, sadly, Elizabeth for not growing a set of balls and kicking that POS to the curb on the national teevee. Stand by your man, my ass.

  27. I can see the appeal of Chris Matthews. From his interview on CNN:

    Matthews: “I want to figure out a way to not be stupid with money, then make a whole bunch of it, then I want to move to Outer Mongolia. I want to milk a yak. Maybe I’ll just settle for a cow. Can you milk a bison? I have fantasies about being a farmer. I always wanted to be a fireman, but who didn’t want to be a fireman? I just wouldn’t tell anyone. I’d just go “poof!” Sometimes I like that idea.”
