John Edwards' Love Child?

While, obviously, we can't take everything we read in supermarket tabloids at face value, this report from the National Enquirer seems to be pretty thoroughly done.

When ENQUIRER reporters contacted Young in person at his home on Dec. 12, he became furious — and denied he was Andrew Young.

He also denied knowing "any Rielle Hunter," yelling at the top of his voice: "You don't even know who I am!" But when his wife called him "Andrew," he shot her a dirty look.

An enraged Young called police, demanding our reporters be arrested for trespassing. Officers from the Chatham County (N.C.) Sheriff's Department responded, questioned everyone and made no arrests.

Since we're dishing gossip, *I* heard that Edwards also is the father of Jamie Lynn Spears baby! Ooooooo, Johnny!!!!

Him, or Billy Blythe.

Those demo-rats just can't keep in in their pants can they?

John Edwards is irrelevant anyway ... who cares ... the value is that it makes the dems look like the scum bags that they are.

Hillary is now widely known as the miserable, nasty elitist bitch she is and Obama is busy trying to play down the Muslim and drug allegations.

Meanwhile the GOP candidates are arguing over who loves Jesus the most. Quite a contrast.

All nuts.

Edwards would never do such a thing.

Anyone who believes he could have done this six months ago is very gullible.

The Enquirer is owned by FOBs - friends of Bill Clinton. Its lawyer defended Bill during the impeachment trial.

I wonder who planted this scoop in their paper? :)

Before anyone goes and calls The National Enquirer a liar, remember that *they* called Jamie Lynn Spears out on being pregnant. Less than 5 months later, she admits it. I hope this brings "Pretty Boy" Edwards down and ends his $240 haircuts. ;-) Perhaps we DO need change and someone fresh... like Barack Obama.

I was sort of hoping that Edwards would be the democratic nominee. I think he would have been the easiest democrat to beat in November.

See? Ann Coulter was wrong!

Edwards is NOT gay - just a girlieman. :)

"Before anyone goes and calls The National Enquirer a liar, remember that *they* called Jamie Lynn Spears out on being pregnant. Less than 5 months later, she admits it."

Less than 5 months later? She is 12 weeks pregnant. So if the Enquirer said she was pregnant 5 months ago, they lied. As one would expect.

Oh, no. A newspaper owned by friends of Bill Clinton may have lied? The man who said:

"I never had sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky."

And the man who under oath said:

"It depends on what the meaning of "is" is."

The Hunter produced videos are partially found on YouTube under: Missing Edwards Webisode

There are 4 videos, about 20 minutes total.

After watching them, Edwards seems very smitten with Hunter. But maybe he is smitten with lots of people, so we should conclude anything from that.

The fact that you think the Enquirer counts as a "newspaper" says a lot about you.

And, for the record, when Bill said "It depends on what the meaning of "is" is," he was telling the truth. It *did* depend on what the meaning of "is" is. the next couple of sentences of his answer explained that, but don't bother too look it up, obc. You clearly wouldn't understand the subtleties of the English language. Besides, it's more fun for you to pretend he lied.

One Leftoid defending another. No surprise here.

And Bubba was DISBARRED for lying under oath - and fined over $90,000.

Well, Fact Check, the National Inquirer DID break the news that the late Liberace was dying of AIDS.

You know, back when everyone had no doubt AIDS was a 'gay' disease and Liberace has so famously ruined a man through litigation in England back in the '50s for suggesting Liberace was a homosexual?

Liberace was the first really big celebrity who died of AIDS, followed by Rock Hudson, and Freddie Mercury.

Liberace? Gay? Say it aint so.

The Enquirer has broken countless stories before anyone else, but they've also printed countless stories that turned out to be false. Who knows about this one?

If it's true I hope they hang him for it. Fooling around is bad enough, but when your wife is critically ill, it's unforgivable.

"they've also printed countless stories that turned out to be false"

Don't tell me that woman in Arkansas did NOT give birth to an alien!

When Bubba was running for Arkansas governor, Hillary was asked:

"How will you deal with his opponent?"

Her reply:

"Humiliate & Destroy."

Thus was born "The Politics of Personal Destruction."

She learned well from Stalin, who destroyed his opposition too.
