National Enquirer Claim; Now Rielle Hunter Dumps John Edwards?

What, what in the world, O Lord, what could I have ever done to deserve all this?

Ah, we laugh. Because other people's misfortunes are, what's the word, funny.

I'm not proud of that. That's just the way it is.

Don't hate the playa, hate the game.

Now, in this particular case, some of those dark schadenfreude giggles may be justified.

Because John Edwards -- who has been indicted for failing to report in-kind campaign donations in the form of bribes to keep his baby-mama quiet -- has actually attempted to convince said baby-mama to take the rap for him and claim it was all her fault, or something. And go to jail in his place, I guess.

At least so says the National Enquirer.

Desperate to stay out of jail, bad boy politi­cian JOHN EDWARDS begged his mistress and mother of his love child Rielle Hunter to cover up for him, but she flatly refused, sources say.

...

In a web exclusive preview, we can report that a close source said, “Rielle snapped at him, ‘I can’t help you! My only concern is raising our daughter.’

“John felt as if she’d stabbed him in the back.”

There is something wrong with this guy. Really wrong. I don't even mean morally; I take that as a given. I mean a serious emotional disorder that I think might border on the s-word. Sociopathy.

It's not just that he tried to lobby her to take the fall.. That's corrupt and cowardly and evil, sure. But... he thought he could actually make this sale?

Then he got mad at her for not going along with it?

What's wrong with him?

You may remember John Kerry's own memory of Edwards, as recounted, I believe, in Bob Shrum's book.

Apparently Edwards was lobbying VP, and told Kerry a story about his son's death, and gave a teary account of it, and told him that he'd learned so much from it and was ready to be VP, or that kind of thing.

And he concluded: And I have never. Told. Anyone. That story before.

Kerry got a chill when he heard this, but not for the reason you'd think. He'd got the chill because he remembered Edwards telling him this same story, with the same dead son and the same "And I have never -- told -- anyone" conclusion, to convince him on some other virtue of Edwards', years earlier. And he got a sense of the man he was thinking about putting on the ticket.

Put him on the ticket anyway, of course.
