John Edwards Pursues White
House Despite Wife's Cancer

Elizabeth Edwards' cancer has returned. According to her husband, former Senator and Vice Presidential Democrat Candidate John Edwards, her cancer "is no longer curable but completely treatable." In other words, she has been handed a death sentence. This is unfortunate, sad and a prognosis that no one should have to hear. I like Mrs. Edwards. My prayers go out to her. I am not a fan of her grandstanding and posturing husband.

Her husband has chosen to pursue his candidacy for the White House despite the return of his wife's cancer. He is being hailed by his supporters and other Liberal Mouthpieces - especially Liberal Radio Talking Heads - as some sort of hero for his political aspirations. Whoa - good thing this scenario happening to the Edwards isn't happening with Newt Gingrich.

We can only imagine the catcalls and the insensitivity from the Left if it were a Republican candidate choosing to pursue his political career over and above his wife's incurable disease. We've already heard it from the unsympathetic Lefties for the manner that Gingrich handled one of his divorces. (By the way, what about how Ted Kennedy has treated women in the past and his ex-wives and the way Bill Clinton treats women - heck, that's all fine and dandy with the Libs! Newt Gingrich is on his third marriage, cry the Lefties trying to manufacture an issue where none exists. Well, Dennis Kucinich is on his third marriage as well - but I digress.)

We can only imagine the the mean-spiritedness and bricks that would be thrown by the low-life Lefties at any Republican who decided to continue on with his political career while his wife underwent ongoing treatment and chemotherapy.

"The campaign goes on. The campaign goes on strongly," said John Edwards. I can't be the only one who finds his statement and behavior rather macabre.

This is a defining moment for the Lefties. None of us will forget the circumstances surrounding John Edwards proudly proclaiming his race for the White House shall continue despite his wife's cancer.

Time and karma is a funny thing. Stuff happens. There is no doubt that at some point in the future, perhaps many years from now, that something similar will happen to a Conservative or Republican politician. Life, disease and death doesn't discriminate simply because of one's political ideology. When it happens, we'll see just how compassionate and fair the Left is, with their actions and attitudes, their charity and kindness, their mercy and sympathy. Or they will demonstrate a complete lack of all these things.

Don't forget...plenty of Lefties are on record for having said, "Tragedy plus time equals comedy." I guess we'll find out just how funny Mrs. Edwards' cancer is.


I wonder how many of them will go for the "simpathy" vote? I have a feeling they will use this opportunity to tug at the heartstrings of Americans. I just wonder how many of "them" have heartstrings. Perhaps I'm jaded.
Good point Bug. The Edwards' news conference yesterday on her cancer did get Johnny Boy on the front page of all the major liberal newspapers and got him plenty of attention. He is - or was (I haven't checked out any polls today) a distant third compared to Hillary Cuntess (sorry...) and Osama Obama. Maybe Edwards will get a boost from it. I don't think it's being jaded. Democrats will do anything when it comes to their political livelihood and if it includes selling their mother or exploiting the disease of someone in their family, they will do it.

Thanks for visiting and commenting, as always.

Oh, and hey , I meant to tell you you've really been writing some great posts and I can't add that into your comments cuz it looks like you have it members only, which is fine, I'm not complaining about it. I really liked the "Spartans" post very much!
