Open mouth insert foot (AGAIN)

This isn't a political blog, but I just have to get this off my chest.

As if a series of $400 haircuts and other campaign gaffes haven't cut Democrat John Edwards off at the knees...... Did he learn nothing from schleping qround with John Kerry?

Edwards the ernstwile poverty crusader and slick-talking shill for the American trial lawyers association has once again stepped in a knee deep pile of political pandering. Catering to the far left-wing of the Democratic party, Edwards recently decried candidates taking any money from Rupert Murdoch's FOX Corp. as it is too partisan for his tastes.

Lo and behold that Edwards had received over $800,000 from one of Murdoch's publishing companies for a self-serving puff piece book he wrote. When his campaign was informed of this hypocrisy, we got the ubiquitous "no comment" and furious spin control.

We do not need people like this in politics!

BTW "nice hair", John.
Back to medcine next week (I promise).
