You GO Girl!

So yesterday I saw this headline:

John Edwards to finally admit baby is his

And I had two immediate thoughts:

1. You are a scumbag, John Edwards
2. Was ANYBODY surprised by this announcement? Anybody? Anybody?

We won't get into how stupid politicians (and Tiger Woods) are by thinking that they won't get caught. News flash: YOU WILL GET CAUGHT. But, we talked about that earlier.

Instead, I want to focus on this headline:

Elizabeth Edwards finally leaves cheating husband, John

Way to go, Elizabeth! You deserve better than a husband who cheats on you while you are going through cancer treatments! Good for you for standing up and refusing to take this crap any longer!* The same kudos go out to Jenny Sanford for leaving her husband!

Maybe if more women stand up to these rediculous politicians who think their wives won't leave them because of their status, more men will THINK before they start sleeping around!

I think we can safely say John Edward's political career is over.**

*Some couples can work through an affair and come out stronger. When that is the case, that is obivously the best case scenario for a horrible situation- especially for the kids, who are the real losers in all of this. But, in these political situations it seems to be too public to really be worked out, and the wife seems to stay just for political reasons, which to me is sad. Unless they can work it out. But often they can't.

**Hillary stayed with Bill and maybe that allowed for them both to continue with their political lives. I think that while they have mutual respect for each other, the only reason they are still together is for political reasons and somehow that works for them. By these women leaving, they probably are ruining their husbands political ambitions, and some may aruge they should therefore stay with their husbands. To which I would respond: if he was so worried about his political career, he SHOULD NOT HAVE CHEATED IN THE FIRST PLACE! It is his fault she left, not hers!

FINALLY! I can't believe she stayed with him as long as she did. Nothing sends my blood to boiling point faster than seeing a scumbag politician publically apologizing to his wife and family with his "supportive" yet zombie like stoic wife standing at his side. I have to completely agree! Go Elizabeth and Jenny and all the others! (Did you see the Haggerty preacher on Oprah, I don't know about those two either)...

If a politician wants his wife by his side for his career, then he should stay by his wife's side for his career.
