Skip to comments.Chet Edwards: The other Edwards doomed me
Posted on 08/24/2008 5:26:10 PM PDT by melt
In an interview with Todd Gillman, U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards of Waco says the antics of a similarly named, slick-talking, lying philanderer probably helped sink his chances of becoming Barack Obama's running mate. The other guy went on television to confess his pecadillos -- guaranteeing his status as a national laughingstock -- just about the time the Obama campaign was considering floating Chet Edwards' name.

Darnit! It would have been fun to see two Democrat candidates with mistaken identities on the same ticket.
Much as McCain is unlikely to choose a woman with the last name of Whitman.
Too many stupid people out there.
When Rush mentioned Chet Edwards as a possible VP choice, I thought it could be problematic for them because many people would see the names on the ticket and think it was John Edwards running.
Too bad his last name isn’t Kennedy . He would have been a shoe in.
He should consider himself fortunate......
It illustrates the mental powers of the average Democrat voter, doesn't it?
Last thing a person wants to do is get off the John and step in Chet.
And I was so wanting to sell millions of my bumper sticker!
Guess I will have to try and peddle this one:
Chet Edwards, another Democrat showboat. Why does he think it necessary to tell everyone this? So he can tell us all just how important he is.
Yup, I’m in central Texas. Thatis ALL he is, another flaming liberal, Athough he may have helped Obambi, for that reason I’m glad he didn’t get picked
Gary Larsen had something for everybody didn’t he??...LOL
Chet is REALLY STUPID if he thought he had even a slim chance.....and it had NOTHING to do with his last name. Get over yourself, Chetty.
GAWD , every single time I see this asshat who runs around Waco to Bryan-College Station telling us how he shovels pork to Texas A&M and the Waco VA I wanna PUKE!!!
Cause doncha know that the republicans would close the VA in Waco and toss all the vets under the bridges of I-35 and shut down A&M.
Chet Edwards needs to run as VP with Barak Hussein Obamalamadingdong. Then we could get rid of this POS as our rep.
Will some republican with stones run against this clown??? He's just a typical democrat that lies about being conservative but the first vote he cast this session was against Bush and to kill the funding for the Iraq War.... did you hear about it in the local press??? H#ll no! The local radio AM station has a weekly suckfest with Chet all the while claiming to be "conservative".
He's a democrat and needs to lose his seat. It doesn't matter cause he's been in office so long he'll get a big fat pension anyway, but at least he can tinker around Waco or DC and quit helping Nancy Pelosi screw us republicans.
Here he is explaining that his testes have been shrunk down to the size of a pea so that he can fit in with the Pelosi programs and the democrat party.
