Well, it is safe to say the American political scene is back to normal. Instead of talking about serious issues like the economy and so on, people are concerned about important items such as affairs of former presidential candidates like John Edwards.
Holy cow!!! I'll bet the Democrats are glad they didn't nominate him.
But you know, people were going after John McCain over his personal life, too. I'm kind of sick and tired of this nonsense in presidential politics. This has been going on ever since Gary Hart self-immolated over the very same topic. People are concerned about which candidate is sleeping with who, and it lowers the level of political debate.
Unfortunately, the climate in America is such that candidates don't feel they can come clean on matters like this. If they admit an affair, they're screwed. If they don't they're also screwed! So why not try and hide the truth? No wonder John Edwards lied to the press about it.
In other strange American political news Kwame Kilpatrick, mayor of Detroit, was thrown in jail the other day. What a farce in the Motor City right now.
