A Post About Someone I Don't Give a Damn About

That would be the recently oh-so-in-the-news John Edwards. 

Funny isn't is:  Here you have a Democrat who hasn't held office for six years, and whose offense was to have an affair and attempt to buy silence from his mistress.

On the other side of the aisle, we have the American Legislative Exchange Council, and the hundreds of Republican legislators around the country which it pays to introduce and support legislation written by corporations. 

Now, isn't that the definition of corruption- to take money to influence their job?  Yet this massive, widespread practice is of absolutely no interest to the mainstream press.  The long-gone Edwards, on the other hand, is fair game for endless press abuse.

And don't tell me that it's because all the American people care about is sex.  If that were the case, we'd still be having nasty articles about David Vitter and that wide stance guy.  But they were Republicans, so it's okay.

This sick game has been going on for decades now.  It brought us Reagan and W.  It brought us disastrous wars and economic collapse.  But no matter what it brings us, it is apparently a fair game to play, as long as the victims are Democrats, or the American people.
