Forget The Edwards/Hunter Love Child, Because Here Comes The Actual Love, Folks

by Philip Baruth

Heads up, people: apparently there’s an Edwards sex tape floating around, to which we may all be subjected at any moment, without warning. Not the most appetizing prospect, but it does clear up one mystery. When Edwards was asked recently by the Washington Post whether it was a mistake to run for President when he was also cheating semi-publicly on his terminally ill wife, he sagely replied, “Time will tell.” Now we know what he meant: let’s wait until the sex tape drops, and then we’ll see where we are. Can’t even look at a picture of this guy now without thinking: you are one dumb, self-destructive son of a mill worker.
