If John Edwards gives a damn about our cause . . .

If John Edwards gives a damn about our cause, he will come absolutely positively 100% clean today.
Letting the story come out in dribs and drabs via half truths and misleading statements only keeps the story alive.
We don't need daily or weekly updates and exposes exploring when it really started and ended and who were the lawyers and who paid the lawyers and where did the money come from and how much money was paid.
The longer the story stays alive, the more all Democrats are hurt by it. Because, according to the mass media, the only cheaters in the modern political era are Democrats. Don't believe me? Read this:
"Edwards joins a long, and probably growing, list of politicians and public figures who can't seem to keep their flies zipped. Think Spitzer, Clinton, Hart."
Not Eisenhower, not Reagan, and certainly not McCain.
The only way to end the story and stop hurting our cause is for John Edwards to try a new tactic - - tell the absolute truth once and for all and stop being a self centered egotistical jerk.
PS - Do not - - DO NOT - - expect the leaders of main stream religions or main stream media to point out the sexual peccadillos of conservative cheaters. Apparently, unless a conservative is caught with a boy, like Rep. Foley, there's no sanction. (See Senator Vitter - - he hasn't had to resign in disgrace, has he? no calls for his impeachment, recall, removal or expulsion, right? no weekly update stories about him in the papers, you notice?)
