"Hmmm...Can't decide if I want to watch "Four Houses" or give myself an Icy Hot pee hole enema..." - Blake Shelton
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
i say edwards beats this
whose willing to bet?
the couple who made the loan have testified that it was a loan
$ were NOT run thru campaign fund ... which causes me to wonder why o'donnell, ensign and palin are not being prosecuted for personally spending their donated campaign funds for personal purposes. but i digress
will never be able to prove my belief that this is a political hit ...
leave cheney, rumsfeld, junior, and the above named rogues alone, despite the massive evidence available to prosecute each of them
and go after edwards, who accepted a loan to keep his girlfriend a secret from his spouse
yep it's political
but i am glad that this case is being brought
because a light needs to be brightly cast upon our campaign finance system, so that its abuses will become known
as will happen during this case
take no prisoners, john
I cannot stand populist pettifogger Edwards but to me prison should be reserved for those whose freedom poses a danger for other citizens. Its a waste of tax dollars to put the slimebag in prison. Fine him and ridicule him for the slug he is
I will say the same thing I say every time a politician gets into legal trouble: prosecute him, convict him if he is guilty, and nail him with the full penalty of law. If there is one thing I expect from politicians it is respect for the law.
Edwards trotted out his wife, in front of all the cameras, to announce both the cancer, and that they were going to persevere through it.
Then he went back to doinking his blonde bimbo.
Here's a video for you:
John Edwards. "I feel pretty".
