    Handsome sleazeball and soon-to-be felon John Edwards accuses mistress of being ‘crazy slut’! Wow!

    The tape was supposedly destroyed after Andrew Young was forced by a court order to turn it in.

    I’m following this story b/c when I was living in NC, John Edwards was considered to be a pretty hot ticket who at one time had a legitimate shot at possibly becoming the Democratic candidate for president.

    Before he crashed and burned of course.

    Andrew Young’s expose’ of the whole fiasco was EXTREMELY interesting and insightful into the whole political BULLSHIT process.

    And ya don’t believe we’re on the Eve of Destruction?

    That $400 haircut was the beginning of the end for Handsome Johnny.

    Classic story of hubris and the Achilles heel.

    Love it!!!
