Title: rip elizabeth edwards
Post by: Allybee on 08 Dec 2010, 09:44
on a much more serious note than the 4loko thread...

elizabeth edwards passed yesterday. she is one of my heroes and is so worthy of admiration; she was intelligent, strong, kind and beautiful. her farewell:

vis a vis her scumbag husband, she really got a raw deal. she should've been the one to run for president, I think... anyways, best wishes for her young children. this is heartbreaking.

Really? That was part of what made John Edwards' cheating so bad, that his wife was so sick.

I didn't really know who she was, but it's always sad when someone dies. Unless they were really horrible, which apparently she was not at all!

Now it's time for all the Beltway types to pretend they always liked her.

It took me a second to realize who she was when I heard about it on NPR

she was horrible to some people, what with her being smart and having ambitions

Her husband used to be a contender for the presidency. She got cancer, and he cheated on her and had a secret baby.

Man, I missed the part where he cheated on her. What an asshat. I am kind of annoyed that I ever thought he was an alright dude.

He's human. His wife was terminally ill and he was probably highly emotional and under a lot of stress.

Infidelity is more complicated than "Oh man, what a dick."

She WAS a nice lady, and he screwed up bigtime, but I feel kind of sympathetic toward him too.

I mean I guess, but I think cheating under normal circumstances is pretty much one of the dickest and most immature choices you can make. This just seems worse, I guess.

Personally I understand it better under these circumstances, actually.

That child she is holding is a very generic looking child.

Also it should totally be walking at this age or in a stroller so the poor mother doesn't have to look like she's hefting a sack of bowling balls.
