John Edwards apparently didn't think too highly of his mistress.
According to testimony Tuesday from Edwards' former top confidante, the ex-senator didn't give himself great odds when he doubted that he was the father of Rielle Hunter's unborn child.
"He said that she was a crazy slut, and it was a one-in-three chance that it was his child," Young testified.
Whether or not those were the odds, Edwards made a bad bet. After denying for months that he was the father, even after he copped to the affair, Edwards has acknowledged paternity for their daughter who is now 4 years old.

Can’t blame you. It was pretty disgusting.
And then, after Elizabeth died, Rielle demanded that her daughter have a part in the other daughter’s wedding that Elizabeth had planned before her death. Makes you wonder what other bad taste antic Rielle can think up? I’m with the poster who says we should pray for the child. She doesn’t deserve such parents.
It sounds like that play “Mama Mia” (which I refuse to to watch, since it glorifies wanton and meaningless sex).
From what I've read about the guy, he struck me as more of an Edwards groupie than a political ideologue. He put up with a lot more than I believe a typical party operative would have. And the way he described Edwards, and how much he believed in him, bordered on teenage girl/boy band adoration.
Part of the Democrat’s War on Women: The old Nuts and Sluts defense.
Now in this particular instance - I would say that Edwards is infinitely worse than any of his staffers, and anything they may have done. To think that some advocated 8 years ago that he should be 1 heartbeat away from the Presidency is just chilling.
300+ million Americans and 6 sleazy slippery scumbags heading up the opposition party for 16 years. Wake up, America.
That daughter is going to be one total psycho...with fabulous hair.
He deserves to choke on his own vomit.
I remember hearing about that during an ABC News special and thinking "that's one conversation I'll bet was a doozie"...
"Honey, would you mind if we take in my boss' pregnant mistress so I can claim the baby is mine? Thanks, dear. I knew you'd understand..."
Pretty Pony got sloppy seconds???
John Edwards did not consent to making a baby. He though all libs had abortions when pregnancies were unplanned.
Every day with the Democrats seems like that long rumored tape of a 50s children's tv host saying "That ought'a hold the little bastards..."
It was a radio host of a children's show, Uncle Don, at WLS in Chicago in the Thirties. It wasn't rumored, but real. I believe Uncle Don lost his show because of that.
The whole rotten Democrapweasel party has admitted that they don’t have anybody better than Obama-Biden left in their ranks.
Jumped the shark Party.
Such a legacy for this unfortunate little girl....
It sounds like that play Mama Mia (which I refuse to to watch, since it glorifies wanton and meaningless sex).
You didn’t miss much. (Saw it on Broadway with one of my sisters as a favor to her.) Had I known the story line, I would have begged off.
I was truly surprised to read the program notes at this musical, as I was sure that someone else had just pieced together a story around ABBA hits. But, no, the lazy ABBA members just recycled their old “hits”; there was very little new material.
So, although this show offends sufficiently with its obnoxious plot line, it also is an insult artistically.
This sister just loves Broadway, and I love her dearly, but, after that one, I said I would not set foot in NYC again. (We have since gone to the Hippodrome in Baltimore, though. I live in MD, and she lives in PA.)
Note to those considering a political career: A woman who is a crazy slut may not be the best romantic partner to select when cheating on your wife. Alternatively: If the odds are one in three that you will be the father if a girl gets pregnant, you ought to avoid her like an STD plague and make those odds zero in three.
Edwards is the poster psychopath for many in government...
DEPOPULATE socialists/psychopaths from the body politic.
