Bottom line, I don’t care. I care so little, I’m not going to click twice to link to the story.

Yes, it’s very, very shitty. Cheating on your wife is one thing, cheating on her when she has cancer is even worse. And Edwards deserves an amount of scorn for it. But other than that, there’s no reason to waste internet space on the story. John Edwards isn’t the Democratic nominee for President, he doesn’t, as of yet, have any role in the convention, he’s not going to be the VP nominee, and for the most part his political career was effectively over already. There’s no place to bounce back from losing 2 Presidential primary campaigns and being the VP nominee on a losing ticket. So there’s no sense in making a major political story out of this, except for the fact that people will read it and the media likes sex scandals.
