Edwards


Here are some good words to live by. Sir Walter Scott , in Canto VI, Stanza 17 of "Marmion" (1808) an epic poem about the Battle of Flodden Field in 1513 wrote, "''Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive." Simply put, you are better off telling the truth regardless of the consequences and not ever lying.

I always like John Edwards and thought that he was a stand up guy. He is very smart and articulate and in the field of idiots we had to choose from he was heads above most. And then he crumbled to the point where he has now admitted to fathering a child with his girlfriend a couple of years ago.

Must have something to do with the Carolinas.

Republican Mark Sanford in South Carolina and now Democrat John Edwards in North Carolina.

The spin doctors who do damage control professionally will tell their clients that when you get caught with your pants down in the wrong place with the wrong woman, admit the sin and move on with your life. Never, ever spin a tale that you cannot get out of later.

This actually started with the Tylenol scare many years ago. Tylenol was told to come clean immediately, which they did, and then life goes on.

The same day we saw pictures of Tiger Woods allegedly walking around the grounds of a sex rehabilitation center in Mississippi wearing a hoodie and looking like he was hiding. And people wonder why he would not talk to the police. He knew that he had two choices. To tell the truth or lie. He decided to do neither.
