Typical Limo Liberal

Politico has more nasty details about John Edwards affair. This article focuses on Andrew Young, the former John Edwards aide, who at first claimed to be the father of the baby of Edward's mistress. As far as sex scandals go, this one is pretty juicy, but the part I found the most revealing was this:

“What we always said about Andrew was that there would always be a place for him as long as John and Elizabeth didn’t want to get their hands dirty and deal with the painters and yard people and get their own groceries,” said a former Edwards aide..."

This is just so typical of limo liberals. They love to talk about how they want to help "the people," they just don't want to actually have to be around them. Al Gore wants to save the earth, but heaven forbid he give up his private jet rides and large mansion and many cars. Ted Kennedy cared about the environment, but not if it meant the windmills might obsure the ocean view from his compound.

Ewards was all about the "two Americas." He was in one, and he clearly didn't want to be associated with the other, except for them to elect him.

They all talk the talk, but never walk the walk.
