I was listening to some report on the radio, which was discussing at length John Edwards, Presidential hopeful. I realized that Edwards had, in fact, made a significant breakthrough in our political system — he has made it OK to talk about the hairstyle, clothing, and general deportment of male politicians the way that is commonly done about female politicians. Maybe he really is more womanly.

“Presidential hopeful” is exactly correct, which I suppose is no surprise, considering the subject of your Ph.D. Edwards is perpetually hopeful, but he’s not an actual Presidential contender. Even Romney has a better shot.

At least being on the campaign trail keeps Edwards off the streets, where he might go back to driving up medical costs for that “second America” that he pretends to know and care about.

And now we have the Hillary Clinton cleavage controversy as an illustration of what I was referring with regard to female politicians. Every time I think Old Media can’t get any more vapid and stupid, they bring out more game.
