Blind Item #14

This southern seems like a long time ago but really wasn't that long ago Presidential candidate who crashed and burned into tabloid flames got a 19 year old waitress pregnant. He just loves getting women pregnant who are not his significant others.

Have no idea.

Ew, is that some sort of expensive, creepy fetish? Significant other(S)? How many kids does this loser want? He really thinks he can run for Prez and not have this be discovered and come out?

I feel sorry for the kids.

Ophelia said...

southern made me think of the zodiac killer one from recently but Edwards is a better guess.

significant otherS?! how many are there?

LooksLikeCRicci said...

John Edwards. Damn, dude. Keep it in your pants!

Ophelia said...

hahah Bliss you and are are asking the same questions apparently

MontanaMarriott said...

Wasn't he the scumbucket who cheated on his wife while she lay dying of cancer?!?!

VDOVault said...

If it is Edwards, here we go again. Cue the massive eye rolls from everyone. it is not like he could even run for dogcatcher anymore so this has to be a desperate plea for media attention.

Neal M said...

+1 for Edwards.

Edwards had it all too. Wealth, fame, power, articulate, bright political future. (I voted for him in the primary before all of this broke on him...)

I actually saw an article about the woman (main one at least) that he knocked up. I actually felt a certain measure of sympathy for her. She seemed like she truly loved him, and still does. A sort of lost soul type. for certain women lacking in social connections and brains, beauty can be a real curse at it attracts the predators.

BlissBoo said...

@Ophelia, hee hee! You go girl.

Totally John Edwards. I forgot about him.

He needs the snip STAT! Bunch of sociopaths running for office.

LooksLikeCRicci said...

Montana-- yes. I was actually a John Edwards fan until that little nugget came tumbling out.

John the peon said...

Montana Marriott I do believe that you are thinking about Newt Gingrich

LooksLikeCRicci said...

It was Edwards, too:

BlissBoo said...

@John the Peon, no, it was John Edwards. POS. Poor Elizabeth. I hope she cursed him to the ground before she left.

MDAnderson said...

Elizabeth Edwards had stage 4 cancer when he knocked up that videographer

tinydancer61 said...

Ewww...how'd Edwards schmooze a 19-year old to sleep with him?? He's OLD!

BlissBoo said...

@John the Peon, I didn't know that Newt left his wife when she was diagnosed with MS. I knew he was a POS, but didn't know that he was a SUPER POS like Edwards. Thanks for the heads-up.

For this blind though its Edwards.

Clinton, too, if "Primary Colors" is to be believed.
Both quite sleazy but I thought Edwards was such an obvious faux and was surprised that he got as far as he did that year. Gore was totally creeped out by him after they got close on the campaign trail.

Sd Auntie said...

Edward's is too damn old to be having kids. My friends voted for him because they liked Elizabeth. I told them that is the dumbest reason to vote for a candidate. Baby mom was MEH on top of that. Last I heard about him was that he was engaged to another 40 something lady. Lol

HeatherBee said...

I think he’s misunderstanding taking a lady to a Jeffersonian dinner.

DDonna Tarttty said...

I was a big John Edwards supporter. He fooled me. Loved his "Two Americas" speech, it was so true. I liked Gary Hart, too.

SarahElizabeth said...

A politician is disgusting? Color me surprised. For real though, any 19 year old who would sleep with John Edwards is either a genius or disturbed. I'm thinking a combination of both.

Cuddlebutt said...

@Neal, sympathy for Rielle?! That whore knew EXACTLY what she was doing. That's not even her real name. A stupid made up one she gave herself, like Hilaria (who seems to be a Duggar-its a vagina, not a clown car!).

Simon said...

And was doing this while his wife was dying of cancer...nice..

Sal Salington said...

Notice that even though this is a political blind we didn't get the usual "Call out the right too!" and "alt-right! alt-right! Naaaazzzzziiiiiiiis!" in here?

It's because it isn't a pedo blind.

Fascinating, isn't it?

plot said...

John Edwards is one of the reasons I wish no one in this country cared about candidate's personal lives. Then again, Edwards set himself up, used every aspect of his family to score political points, so can't have it both ways.

Still, he was a true progressive.

Neal M said...

I would tell you whose political machine dug that up and threw it out like red meat, when she thought Edwards was the one standing between her and her destiny, and not the young black guy with little Experience from Chicago. But I am afraid your head would explode.

This Edwards story reminds me of how far I went to defend him when it broke, trying to shrug it off as a smear job. I really thought he would have been a great President (wrongly, obviously).

hhstarr said...

Shows how old I am (and today is my 46th bday) that I, at first, thought Ross Perot. But I dont even think he is still alive. Or maybe he is.

HeatherBee said...

Happy birthday!

Neal M said...

Yeah, happy B'day youngster!

Perot was freaky like that? And had willing partners? Never know that.


My first guess is often wrong, so I usually wait for Tricia or MA Andy to throw theirs out - for this the first name popped in my head was Gary Hart, even though he isn't southern nor did he get what's her name pregnant.

He is another one that would have been a good president.

deadzo said...

Jeb!

plot said...

@Neal

"I really thought he would have been a great President (wrongly, obviously)."

No, I think you were right, actually. Edwards would have been a great president, it's that the press and the citizens can't see beyond the personal lives of Democratic candidates (Republicans are always excused. Jesus makes everything alright.)

I wish candidates would quit using their families for campaigning, US citizens quit responding to their family propaganda, and that no one cared about anyone's personal life. Hell, have 5 mistresses, be gay, who cares. Just run this country like an expert who knows their shit rather than a criminal or an incompetent (or both!).

Elizabeth Edwards met the baby he had with the New Age yahoo who changed her boring name to something she thought was exotic, Brielle. Elizabeth bought the baby a beautiful bassinet. She acted with love and generosity.

luckythewondercat said...

Guess John Edwards cannot afford those $400 hair cuts now. He would run for office again if he thought he had a chance. Anthony Weiner and Elliott Spitzer tried. I remember reading how he hated holding babies and shaking hands.

Getting votes from the unwashed masses is one thing. Mingling with them not so much.

Dannette said...

John Edwards is a lawyer...rollin in the dough. He is a true American progressive, in other words a shitstain.

PapayaSF said...

John Edwards is a scumbag who got rich using junk science to sue doctors. As a result, a lot of unneeded Caesarian sections were done, health care costs went up, and lots of rural areas no longer have obstetricians. So like plot says, he was true progressive: preening and getting rich while making things worse and more expensive for the rest of us.

FlirtyChick74 said...

I would. Edwards of course.

Actually he can. You jelly?

You jelly, too?

@Papaya

Read your little reactionary article there. So much defense of our corrupt systems that only seek to increase their wealth at our expense and our health. If the only way we have to fight that is in the courts, that's what we have to do.

Hey, you know what is going on now? Our lovely GOP Congress is seeking an end to our abilities to sue any doctor for malpractice or corporations for harming us or our environment. Expect many more Flints in future and many more botched surgeries and treatments through new streamlined factory style hospital experiences. Not only that, but the days of being able to sue your employers for mistreatment of any kind are ending! Woo-hoo! Bet you imagine yourself the rich employer in THAT scenario donja! Well, you ain't. You're just a schmuck who drinks the Kool-aid and not a very special schmuck at that.

Look up the new rules on arbitration. Who do those benefit, schmuck? Not you. Not me. Not anyone you will ever know.



MissHanigan said...

Yes it is. Edwards is the scum stuck to the bottom of a scumbucket.

Thorne said...

Damn politicians breeding, infesting America with their spawn

Jon Feltman said...

Plot, you are the biggest loser here, and the board pariah. Nobody gives a shit what you think about anything.

plot said...

@Jon

Yet you respond, which seems to indicate you DO give a shit.

Hortensia said...

Jon Feltman YOU'RE the one nobody cares to see what you write.

Plot has plenty to say that's worth reading.

So buzz off Feltman.

Jennacheryl said...

Lmao Bill?

chillip said...

defending JE is not the hill you want to die on.

sleazy dude. oozes it. exactly the kind of person who should not be in politics.
