Hate To Say I Told You So...

..unless we're talking about an insufferable, self-important walking haircut like John Edwards.

In October, I got a lot of flak for talking about the National Enquirer story revealing John Edwards relationship with another woman (other than his wife and himself, I mean) and their love child. I pointed out that this is exactly the kind of selfish, self-serving behavior to expect from an ambulance-chasing politician who insisted on dragging his cancer-stricken wife on the campaign trail.

Well, now the whole story is out, and it isn't pretty:

Edwards went out of the hotel briefly with Rielle, they were observed by the NATIONAL ENQUIRER and then went back to her room, where he stayed until attempting to sneak out of the hotel unseen at 2:40 a.m. (PST). But when he emerged alone from an elevator into the hotel basement he was greeted by several reporters from the NATIONAL ENQUIRER.

Senior NATIONAL ENQUIRER Reporter Alexander Hitchen asked Edwards why he was visiting Rielle and whether he was ready to confirm that he was the father of her baby.

Shocked to see a reporter, and without saying anything, Edwards ran up the stairs leading from the hotel basement to the lobby. But, spotting a photographer, he doubled back into the basement. As he emerged from the stairwell, reporter Butterfield questioned him about his hookup with Rielle.

Edwards did not answer and then ran into a nearby restroom...

I almost feel sorry for this fool. ALMOST.

Oh, and where is the mainstream media coverage of this story?

Don't hold your breath. John Edwards may not be able to carry his home state for the national ticket...but he's still a liberal Democrat.
