"Mr. Young says that he assisted the affair by setting up private meetings between Mr. Edwards and Ms. Hunter. He wrote that Mr. Edwards once calmed an anxious Ms. Hunter by promising her that after his wife died, he would marry her in a rooftop ceremony in New York with an appearance by the Dave Matthews Band."
-- Mickey Kaus, further informing us about A) what an unsurprising sleaze John Edwards is, B) the content of Edwards's assistant, Andrew Young's new book, and C) Rielle Hunter, and what kind of "ghoulish slapstick" makes a NewAger's heart sing - let's see: just add hefty doses of secrecy, sex, delusional thinking, lying, adultery, cancer, and death, along with the wayward warbling and wanking of Dave Matthews - because NewAgers are sure (once everything they desire is attained) it's all supposed to ultimately result in the rest of us admiring them so much that, once all the mayhem they cause for others is over, we'll gladly give them a clean Slate.
C'mon kids: Put this shit with the ACORN scandal, etc., and a pretty accurate picture of this NewAge Democratic Party should be starting to emerge. It's wonderful these things are being exposed because, by having them revealed in this manner, no one can say anyone forced these folks into doing these things - this is just who they are - finally standing naked before us, for all to see.
Now don't touch the naughty bits.
