The Lure of Crazy Women
Yet another horndog politician has trashed his career and longtime marriage over a crazy broad. The latest victim of the thinking-with-the-little-head syndrome is pretty boy John Edwards who managed to get caught so red-handed by the New Media that no amount of glossing-over by the Mainstream Media could save him.
Edwards’ case is especially sad because he got caught cheating on a woman who suffers from terminal cancer but it’s also especially annoying because he was dipping his wick into the kind of crazy broad who can’t keep her mouth shut – and doesn’t want to. It would seem that Rule #1 in the Philandering Pol Handbook would be “Pick a woman who has as much to lose as you do and has reasons to keep your affair a secret.”
This will not guarantee that the National Enquirer won’t follow you to your trysting place but it does make it less likely that your paramour will have them on speed dial and give them directions. Let’s face it – this is a woman who has publicly stated “I am going to be famous. Rich and famous. I am going to meet a rich, powerful man.” Does this sound like Discreet Mistress material or Future Reality Show Slut?
