Baby babyface?

Does it really come as a surprise to anyone to learn that former presidential hopeful John Edwards is a liar and a cheat? Has it not always been startlingly obvious? His wife is also a liar and a cheat. Witness her slimy words: “Admitting one’s mistakes is a hard thing for anyone to do, and I am proud of the courage John showed by his honesty in the face of shame. The toll on our family of news helicopters over our house and reporters in our driveway is yet unknown. But now the truth is out, and the repair work that began in 2006 will continue. I ask that the public, who expressed concern about the harm John’s conduct has done to us, think also about the real harm that the present voyeurism does and give me and my family the privacy we need at this time.”

The privacy they need to concoct their next pack of lies to feed to the gullible and the young. Tests are not necessary to determine if Edwards is indeed the father of the baby in question, as, if he is, it will start to look and behave like a weasel well by the age of two.
