“If you have had a vasectomy, Andrew, this whole cover-up is no good:" Andrew Young Fillets John Edwards

John Edwards' defense, suggested by his lawyer in opening statement, is that Andrew Young was up to all of these shenanigans for himself, not John Edwards.

John Edwards didn't know anything about a cover-up or secret payments or Andrew Young's sham claim of paternity of Edwards' child, you see. Andrew Young was doing all these things at his own initiative, in order to preserve a relationship with the wealthy Edwards.

Okay. Whatevs.

The Daily Beast digests Young's testimony.

The general thrust is that covering up Edwards' affair -- placating Reille Hunter, etc. -- became the sum and entirety of Young's job. Here are few snippets.

Young described how he was ordered to procure a special cellphone so the lovers could secretly communicate. “We called it the Bat Phone,” Young said. “He worried that Mrs. Edwards was checking his cellphone records.”

Because Edwards needed money to keep Reille quiet, get this -- the multimillionaire Edwards asked the salary-man Andrew Young for a loan.

In a stunning revelation, the witness alleged the multimillionaire Edwards first asked him for a loan knowing that the Youngs had recently come into a windfall of some $400,000 on the sale of their home. Asked for his response to Edwards by the prosecutor, Young replied, “I said, ‘No, sir.’ We needed that money to build our new house.” And, Young added, “We always had trouble getting reimbursed from the office. Giving him two or three hundred dollars once in a while was one thing, but …” His voice trailed off and the point was made. (To hear Young tell it, Edwards rarely dipped into his own pocket—not even the day Young drove the lovers to a clinic to get their shots prior to their alleged trip to Africa.)

Weird thing but I hear that happens -- some rich people just get used to people paying for them, oddly enough.

Kind of a con, I guess. I guess people of lesser means will lavish money on people like Edwards with the expectation they'll get a big windfall from their investment some day.

Young says he and Edwards discussed the idea of asking über-wealthy Texas lawyer Fred Baron for financial help since he had been generous in the past. The senator nixed that idea, said Young, saying Baron was too close to his political rivals—Bill and Hillary Clinton—and, besides, Baron was “too much of a gossip.”

Then, serendipitously, a note from one of Edwards' richest donors arrived offering help. Rachel “Bunny” Melon wanted John to be the next president so he could “rescue America.” Young said she sent a handwritten note suggesting she could funnel checks through her trusted interior decorator as a way “to help our friend (Edwards) without government restrictions.” Edwards called Bunny Mellon after receiving the letter and, according to Young, announced, “She was good to go!”

Eventually Edwards convinced Young to claim he was Hunter's babydaddy. But then some story got out that Young had had a vasectomy.

In perhaps the most damning testimony of the day, Young related a panicked phone call from Edwards in which he nervously asked his staffer if he had undergone such surgery. “If you have had a vasectomy, Andrew, this whole cover-up is no good,” Young quoted him as saying. Young said the truth was that he had never had such a procedure.

Here's a typical biased headline from the MSM: John Edwards Makes Rush Limbaugh Look Like A Feminist.

They just can't let the facts speak about a Democrat without dragging a completely-unrelated Republican into it. And they continue to be stone-cold stupid: Politics have very little to do with one's character.

Al Gore became the Crusading Avenger for Campaign Finance Reform when, exactly? Oh yes: Right after he got caught taking hundreds of thousands of illegal overseas campaign donations from Chinese nuns.

Hath no liberal ever read Shakespeare?

Methinks the lady doth protest too much.

55 From Fox:


On Wednesday, Young testified that while in the Washington hotel
room, he overheard Edwards' half of a phone conversation with Mellon's
interior designer, Bryan Huffman, who was involved in funneling the
money to hide Hunter.
"You're a great American. The
four of us are going to do great things for the country,"
Young said
quoting Edwards, who was apparently referring to himself, the designer,
Baron and Young.







I don't think "great American" means what Edwards thinks it means.

The latest brick in the wall is the predictably named "Moving Ahead For Progress in the 21st Century Act," also known as Senate Bill 1813.
This legislation -- already passed by the Senate and likely to be passed by the House -- will impose a legal requirement that all new cars made beginning with the 2015 models be fitted with so-called Event Data Recorders (EDRs). These are the "black boxes" you may have read about that store data about how you drive -- including whether you wear a seat belt and how fast you drive -- ostensibly for purposes of post-accident investigation.

104 If Reille Hunter had access to free contraception this wouldn't have happened.

OK.......time for a rant. Why the hell is that Democrats and Liberals (BIRM) are always harping about 1) the need for more sex education to avoid unwanted pregancies, STDs, etc and 2) the need for the government to pay for these wonderful things and yet a) never seem to be able to use the damn thing (think Clinton and Lewinsky----if Bill had used a condom, he never would have been caught) or are too cheap to buy them (really, John Edwards could not buy a friggin box of rubbers). Yet these idiotic amoral asshats continue to lecture us about the need for more and free birth controls......because yea, John Edwards needs my money for condoms? Because, yea, I guess Bill Clinton, while harping and harping about the threat of AIDS and the need for safe sex, couldn't take the time to actually use a condom because, somehow, his jollyroger was immune from AIDS?

OK, never mind, I forgot........being a liberal means never having to admit your a hyprocrit.

The origin of that one is due to a famous athlete, which I think to be Andre Agassi, getting some and not tossing the used condom. He later got held up for a LOT of money in a paternity suit.
