It’s Not Pretty When Mo Dowd Refers To Edwards As Breck Girl

When Maureen Dowd decides to diss a Democrat, one who has had presidential asspirations and was, in fact, very popular in the Nutroots prior to Barry’s Messianic ascendancy, well, you know it just can’t be good. The substance of her column is

The stunning admission Edwards made to ABC’s Bob Woodruff, and in a written statement from Chapel Hill on Friday afternoon, was that he’s a narcissist.

Even in confessing to preening, Edwards was preening. His diagnosis of narcissism was weirdly narcissistic, or was it self-narcissistic? Given his diagnosis, I’m sure his H.M.O. would pay.

The creepiest part of his creepy confession was when he stressed to Woodruff that he cheated on Elizabeth in 2006 when her cancer was in remission. His infidelity was oncologically correct.

Now, some on the Left get why Edwards admitting he was lying about cheating on his wife while she still had cancer while running for President, not to mention that he was having an affair while essentially running for office, some don’t. Maybe they will believe Mo

He has an affair with Hunter, while he’s honing his speech on the imperative to “live in a moral, honest, just America.” A married former aide says he’s the father when she gets pregnant, even though she’s telling people Edwards is the dad. And one of his campaign donors pays off Hunter to get her resettled with the baby out of North Carolina.

But the Breck Girl wants a gold star for the fact that he sent his marriage into remission when his wife was in remission. That’s special.

And there it is: the Breck Girl citation and the point. Edwards was telling people about honesty, morality, and being just, yet, he is being anything but.

In our hearts, we hope that politicians are honest, decent people. In our brains, we know that they are politicians, and we shouldn’t expect much. But, the last thing we want is some vainglorious narcissist yapping about 2 America’s and America being better, when he himself is anything but, and lies about it.

We’ll take the “Edwards got paid $55K to give a speech on poverty” as written.
