I'm a narcissistic scum bag (or is it scumbag)

I rarely use my blog to talk about people in the news, but this story has me hopping mad, yep that's right, I've spent the last hour hopping around my house. Well, not really, but boy, am I pissed.

And why I'm surprised, even I don't know.

John Edwards is an effing scum bag. The lowest of the low.

His wife is diagnosed with cancer, undergoing chemo, devotes herself to his career and his little children are dragged around the country. He repeatedly lies to media and everyone around him...

But sure enough, he CHEATED on his wife.

Oh big many others have done the same. FDR, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Clinton.

But this one seems particularly repulsive.

C'mon John...your wife is dying of cancer. She has suffered the death of her son. She has devoted herself to you and your career.

C'mon, I mean, really? Seriously?

All I can say is blech, argh, yuck.

What a get! I remember reading articles and interviews with his wife - she seems like an amazing woman. He's a scumbag!

Yes, it's very disappointing to hear this news about him.

No wonder people are disillusioned with politics!

What a jackass. Seriously, if you're going to cheat on your wife, make sure she's healthy first.

Claire: yep I agree

Jaime: it was more than disappointing for me, I guess disheartening is the word.

ilanadavita: welcome!...and yes, this doesn't help does it?

Joe: now that's a "joe" comment...nuff said ;)

yes Randi, you're right. Though it's not our business to ask why or pass judgment on why he did what he did - that's really between him and his wife and family, but as leader that the people are putting their trust into which does include character, values, and so forth, what a friggin idiot to do that. Temptation is one thing, even being vulnerable and worn down because of trying to stand strong for his wife and family which isn't an excuse but maybe one can possibly understand how it could happen, but PLEASE, you can't be that emotionally depleted and blind to be that stupid if you are a politician trying to win office. What an idiot.
