Today, hapless democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, derisively known as the Breck Girl to us conservatives, fended off tabloid allegations that he had an exrtamarital affair with a campaign staffer.
My question is, why? If you are the butt of jokes about your feminine obsession with your hair, your nick-name is Breck Girl or Silky Pony, a 4 minute video of you preening like a 15 year old cheerleader on prom night is a huge YouTube hit, and Ann Coulter outright called you gay, wouldn't you welcome a rumor that you were a misogynistic, skirt-chasing player? I mean from strictly a PR standpoint? Democrats, especially the critical soccer-mom voters, love a President who sleeps around on his wife and sexually mistreats women. This might be the key to the White House for him, or at least the Veep slot.
It wouldn't surprise me one bit to find out in a year that the rumor came from his campaign.
