They still don't know the exact name of the medical condition but the symptoms are uncontrollable cr*pping in the pants for fear of going to jail.

I wonder if he’s taking a page out of his late wife’s book. Get sick, avoid serious questions.

How I pity his children.

Will he sue some medical company for his illness? After all, is that not how he gathered his fortune?

The FUnnie thing is that my stairwell has a mountain of packs of Depends because I recently had to get them via coupons (they were FREE) in order to get the Walgreens Register Rewards to buy a bunch of Axe Shower gel. If John Edwards contacts me I would be happy to send him a bunch of Depends to see him thru his trial and his meeting with cellmate, Big Bubba.

Maybe one of those doctors he sued and screwed over can treat him.

What is kind of funny is that he stayed in the race to screw Hillary and help Obama. Obama then prosecutes him. I feel sorry for his kids. The adults in that clan brought down a lot of bad karma. The kids did not deserve those parents.

Why Sharks Circle You Before Attacking

Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean spied survivors of a sunken ship. “Follow me son” the father shark said to the son shark and they swam to the mass of people.

“First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fins showing.” And they did.

“Well done, son! Now we swim around them a few times with all of our fins showing.” And they did.

“Now we eat everybody.” And they did.

When they were both gorged, the son asked, “Dad, why didn’t we just eat them all at first? Why did we swim around and around them?”

His wise father replied, “Because they taste better without the shit inside!”

There’s always a first time, but this is the first time I’ve heard of a trial being delayed over a severe case of chlamydia.

The Disraeli quote was the BEST. Actually quite HILARIOUS especially since he came up with it on the spur of the moment.

I also like what then Governor Ronald Reagan told Bob Hope: “I am happy to announce that the California Legislature passed a resolution declaring you an outstanding citizen of this state. ...I vetoed it.”

Who wants to bet John Edwards will channel Elizabeth Edwards and have her testify she forgives him...

I believe that the vernacular for what Mr. Edwards is manifesting is “snivelling”.

I hope the Enquirer has some photographers staking out his house. I’m sure the neighbor across the street that Silky Pony and the late missus liked to trash would be glad to let the reporters wait there.

Now he knows how some of the innocent doctors felt that he robbed. The stakes are a bit higher now for Edwards.

Edwards must have really pissed off the wrong people. He is really unpleasant but this diverting campaign funds to Rielle Hunter and paying hush money is pretty small potatoes for a Democrat.

This sniveling POS stayed in the race to nuke Hillary and this is how Obam pays him back? This guy must have really stepped on the wrong toes.

I just got a mental picture of your house. It looks like the “Hoarders” that I see on cable TV, only all the stuff is new and still in the box. What are you going to do with all this stuff, open a shop and sell it?

Try to delay all he wants it won’t be long before he sees the other America. The one where he is a abused girlfriend.

Well, my kitchen does have several dozen neatly lined up bottles of marinade. I did have about 5 months worth of coffee vacuum packs as well but discovered just this morning to my horror that I have suddenly run out of the stuff. Oh, and now that you reminded me. I need to go out to my van to grab several Alka Seltzer Plus cold medicines that I got for FREE today. And if that isn’t enough, I also picked up a bunch of Theraflu cold medicines for just 39 cents each.

LOL! Yep, you need to open a shop! Since you got all this stuff virtually for free, almost every cent will be profit.

I’m surprised he found a doctor that would treat him.

No, he just wants to put the trial in a critical phase of the 2012 election, hoping that political pressure to keep details of Democrat corruption under cover will play in his favor.

The guy was a Democrat VP nominee and Presidential candidate and having him as a poster boy for Democrat corruption and cover up will be a bad message at a critical time for Democrats
