Edwardses Shamelessness Week

In today’s The Note, Elizabeth Edwards’s response to Lynne Cheney’s natural reponse to Kerry using the Cheneys daughter last night: (Mrs. Cheney: “The only thing I could conclude is that this is not a good man. This is not a good man. And, of course, I’m speaking as a mom. And a pretty indignant one. This is not a good man. What a cheap and tawdry political trick.”):

Elizabeth Edwards, during an interview with ABC News Radio this morning had the following response:

“It makes me really sad that that’s Lynne’s response. I think that it indicates a certain degree of shame with respect to her daughter’s sexual preferences that I’m certain makes her daughter uncomfortable. That makes me very sad on a personal level.”

She called Kerry’s response “very thoughtful” and “extremely sensitive.” She also said Lynne Cheney has been a “wonderful advocate for her daughter,” but feels “she has over-reacted to this” and “that’s a very sad state of affairs.”

And, on Fox, Kerry spokesperson Debra DeShong had the nerve to say, “If Lynne Cheney has a problem, it’s something that she needs to work with her family.”

Well, we seem to have hit a brick wall. All four of the people named by Kavanaugh's accuser have now given their accounts to the Senate. And all four of them have said either that Kavanaugh is innocent of all charges, or that they have no recollection of his doing anything -- anything -- wrong. Put as simply as ... Read More
