Edwards' "other woman" revives memories of a gruesome scandal
ESPN ^ | 8/14/08 | By Lester Munson, with William Nack

Posted on 08/15/2008 9:48:17 AM PDT by LittleSpotBlog

On Sunday, as I was sitting in my summer cabin in Vermont, completely absorbed in a New York Times story about John Edwards' affair with Rielle Hunter, I began reading a paragraph whose message shot through me like a sudden bolt of electrical current. The story centered on Ms. Hunter's refusal to take a DNA test to determine the paternity of her 5-month-old daughter, but that was not what startled me. It was this: "Ms. Hunter was born in Fort Lauderdale. Fla., in 1964 as Lisa Druck and moved to New York City in her 20s, becoming part of a Manhattan social scene that included the writer Jay McInerney …"

It’s very easy for me to imagine her doing the nasty in the back of a truck at a horse show...she’s totally the type!

When did “that” start being classified as a sport...

Gruesome is right, gak!

"Rielle's dad electrocuted horses for cash" - the sort of headline one would expect on a paper like, um, er, the National Enquirer. Oh the irony.

Plain girls have to take what they can get.... Here is the 1992 Sports Illustrated article where "The Sandman" describes his connection to James Druck and the killing of horses for insurance money

Edwards is even stupider than anyone could have imagined.

Did no one on his staff think to do a background check on "camera girl?"

Apparently, the way Lisa did it while all coked up, did qualify as a sport. Johnny is certainly going to wish he hadn’t ridden her.

I believe that background check was delegated to a Mr. Johnson.....

Ti, Rush agreed with you. Saying she looks like Camilla Parker Bowels.

“Sitting so close
I cannot disguise
That love so deeply intended
Could cease to live at dawn
I gently gaze
Searching for a sparkle in your eye
Given back to me
the love I once desired
One pleasant afternoon
I gaze upon myself.”

There once was a man named Druck
Who shot horses from the back of his truck
His daughter latched on
To a pony named John
And another dumb beast was thus struck.

The Silky Pony's mistress's father is a horse killer?

Man, there is a Nicole Kidman movie here, with an Academy Award, and maybe enough of a story for Burt Reynolds to win a Oscar as her dad, and another for Nicolas Cage to play Silky Pony. This has huge potential as a 5-star movie. And we can even toss in Bill Clinton, a dead horse, and the National Enquirer.

Indeed, by the time she was hired, Edwards had scrutinized her thoroughly.

There once was a girl name of Lisa,
who was known as a ravenous piece a'
With that girl's shocking past,
Silky Pony sank fast,
"That baby's not mine, it's my niece (uh...)"

My husband just asked me if maybe Lisa Druck snuck in Edward's back door?

(He's a Marine, he is allowed to say off color things.... ;^)

There once was a girl named Druck
Whose daddy was down on his luck
He put down a nice horse
and to salve her remorse
Lisa hauled Silky's ashes (upchuck)

(Your Marine husband thought of another word, eh?)

Reille/Lisa must have been a horsewoman.

She sure took a lot of rides on the Silky Pony.

What with Edward’s claim that the baby isn’t his, because he and Lisa only had ‘unconventional sex’,

maybe Edwards was ‘sneaking’ in Lisa’s back door.

(Semper Fi and a big THANKS to your hubby!)

I gotta give anyone who can attach alligator clips to a horse’s anus some credit though.

We freepers thought her name was "Ree-ell"
But that's incorrect, as I hear tell
It's pronounced "Rye-lee"
Which makes me smile-ee
A rose by any name doth still smell
