Is Edwards Drunk?

In my glorious cameo return to the 100 Hour Board I promised a discussion of why I think Mitt Romney CAN win the Republican Nomination.

For now, that promise will have to stand. I mean, it is 11:40 PM and I just returned from the office, so I'm not in any mental state to opine.

But, I did see this today...

People are reporting that Edwards contradicted himself in this piece. But, I have a more important question:

Is this man inebriated? Seriously... he seems like he just woke up from a nap. Do we really want someone like this leading our country?

That is on top of an interesting article in Time Magazine today about John Kerry picking Edwards as his running mate. It is a very interesting read, and an interesting perspective on the man who fake-smiles so much I think he's missing a central nervous system.

Regardless, when Kerry offered the job to him, Edwards shared a memory that "he'd never shared... with anyone else." It was a rather disturbing story about John cuddling with his dead son on the embalming slab. Odd. But, the interesting thing was this quote: "Kerry was stunned, not moved, because, as he told me later, Edwards had recounted the same exact story to him, almost in the exact same words, a year or two before—and with the same preface, that he'd never shared the memory with anyone else."

How many times can you share a disturbing memory that you have never shared with anyone else before you happen to come around and share it with someone you barely knew before he chose you as a VP candidate? I mean, I ALWAYS have that problem.

I once thought of John Edwards as a semi-respectable guy. Now... ugh... just get away from me.

Go get a $400 haircut... and make your campaign pay for it.

That is all.
