A recent article about John Edwards made me think of that movie, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It's about a man who goes through a painful break-up with his girlfriend. Rather than deal with the pain of losing the love of his life, he has a doctor erase all memories of her. I suspect the last 40 years have been so traumatic for John Edwards that he has decided to go to the same doctor.

While we're at it, let's de-criminalize all crimes and wipe all lawlessness, too!
Thanks, Uncle Johnny! More $$$ for the poor? That's a great idea.
You go first!
I believe it was in an issue of Maxim that I read a quote from Bradshaw that goes something like this:
If you take all the rich people's money and give it to the poor, in 5 years the rich will have it back.
Just a fact of life. Poor are poor for a reason.
Come on John. We all know throwing more money at poverty doesn't fix it. Besides, we have to throw that money at education. It's for the kids now.
Was this not the goal of the War on Poverty more than 40 years ago? How'd that work out?Yes, but to be fair. No president has had the coif of Edwards. Or his makeup. Or his girlish good looks. Those things matter, you know. How can you expect to fight poverty if your hair isn't just so?
The error in the article begins when the author assumed John Edwards even has a brain.
We have produced enough food to feed the world for DECADES. The only reason for starvation in the world is left wing despots.
IOW the world needs more "Truth, Justice, and THE AMERICAN WAY" to solve the problems of the world.
The more the wold becomes Americanized the less poverty and injustice in the world.
Dear Just A Nobody,
Day after day, I am stunned by the callousness of George Bush's presidency. Two thousand five hundred American soldiers killed in Iraq is "just a number," according to White House Press Secretary Tony Snow. Thousands of our most vulnerable are stranded in the New Orleans Superdome after Katrina while the Bush administration looks the other way. Millionaires get tax breaks while children and seniors go without health care and other basic human needs. As far as I'm concerned, George Bush is the worst president in my lifetime.
To protect American families from further harm, we must stop the Bush administration's extreme agenda at the next possible opportunity. One of the most important things we can do is elect a Democratic Senate this November.
You can help get our country back on track by supporting the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee today. On June 30th, we face a critical fundraising deadline in our efforts to close the gap between Democrats and Republicans running for Senate. As I write this message, the DSCC is just under $100,000 away from meeting its $1 million goal. Every dollar you contribute before the deadline will be personally matched by a group of Democratic Senators. If you have ever thought about making a contribution, the moment to make a difference is right now. We need your support today to make or break this goal.
Please make a secure online contribution of $50, $75 or more. The DSCC will put your contribution to work immediately in the campaign to stop George Bush's extreme agenda.
We must take immediate action for two main reasons.
First, we must restore our country's moral leadership in the world, especially as it pertains to the war in Iraq. It's no secret that America's credibility and influence have been hobbled by George Bush's actions during the past six years. In too many places around the globe, the idea of American leadership seems like a contradiction. The Bush administration has turned a blind eye, and has done nothing to change its failed policy in Iraq. A Democratic Senate will stand up to this administration and hold it accountable for its mistakes and failed priorities.
Second, under George Bush's callous leadership, our government has done nothing to address the growing gap between rich and poor - the most dangerous threat to our national character as a land of opportunity. Thirty-seven million of our own people are living in poverty and despair - George Bush's response is bloated deals for government contractors in Iraq and giveaways to the oil and gas industry. Just last week, the Republicans in the Senate blocked Senator Kennedy's attempt to raise the minimum wage - which has not been increased in almost ten years. This is not simply wrong. It is downright mean-spirited.
We all pay a price when the American Dream no longer seems American. The Republicans in Washington, D.C. have left a trail of wreckage at home and abroad. The best way to stop them is to elect a Democratic Senate in November. We need your help to meet and exceed the DSCC's $1 million end-of-quarter goal. Please help today.
Please make a secure online contribution of $50, $75 or more. The DSCC will put your contribution to work immediately in the campaign to stop George Bush's extreme agenda. A group of Democratic Senators will match your donation dollar-for-dollar, effectively doubling your contribution. Democrats running for Senate are ahead or tied in five of seven targeted races - even as they challenge better-known and better-financed Republican incumbents.
There is nothing we can't accomplish, as Americans and as Democrats. Please do not stand on the sidelines and wait for someone else to act. The power to stop George Bush's callous presidency is in your hands.
The DSCC is counting on you. Please make a contribution today.
P.S. I know you have friends and family who are as concerned about the future as you are. Please forward this message and ask them to join you in stopping the Bush agenda today with a contribution to the DSCC. Together, we can elect a Democratic Senate.
Edwards is pushing the SAME OLD "meeeeeaaaaan republicans" line.
Same empty words
