Blind, rabid squirrels

Although John Edwards has admitted he had an affair with Rielle Hunter, I still stand by my earlier post on this matter. There was only the flimsiest of evidence supporting the story of an affair and the National Enquirer stories seemed especially shady because there was no video and there were not even still photos, untrustworthy as those may be. Therefore, I think the mainstream media did the right thing in refusing to lend credence to NE’s reports.

It now appears that NE had photographic evidence which it decided to withhold either to keep the story largely for itself or to keep the pot boiling. However much John Edwards may have deserved that particular form of cruelty, his wife did not and neither did any of his children.

The fact that even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while does not mean we should encourage it to dig up the garden. Especially when the squirrel is rabid.
