A White House/gay boycott and the abolition of marriage: Will Jill Biden go out with me?
(Page 4 of 6)
Let’s be candid here, shall we? Brutally candid.
At this very moment, what is one of the most dramatic trials in all of America? Yes indeed, the trial of former North Carolina Senator John Edwards. Edwards twice a very serious presidential candidate (2004 and 2008) and, in 2004, coming within 100,000 votes in Ohio of being Vice President John Edwards under a President John Kerry.
Forget all the legal hoopla over whether Edwards broke campaign finance laws. Maybe he did, maybe he didn’t. In this space we have no idea and will await the jury’s decision.
The real question is something entirely different. When one adds the views of Obama, Biden, and Turley to the leading liberal cultural indicators that are HBO’s Big Love and the gay Ellen DeGeneres happily embracing the polygamous Kody Brown and wives on her popular TV show — one has to ask:
Why is there so much fuss over John Edwards and his relationship with Rielle Hunter? Why was his late wife — very much advertised as a tolerant left-leaning feminist — so furious with her husband for having hot sex and a baby with another woman, Ms. Hunter? What was Elizabeth Edwards’ problem? Didn’t she understand Rielle Hunter was her “Sister Wife”?
And why in the world did Maria Shriver demand a divorce from husband and ex-California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger? Just because he had a baby with the housekeeper? Can’t housekeepers be Sister Wives too?
And now that we’re into this subject, remember when all the Liberals said that Bill Clinton’s repeated womanizing problems were “just about sex”? Why in the world was Hillary so upset with the poor guy? What was it with Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky, Kathleen Willey and all the rest that kept Hillary from understanding that in reality, while she may have been First Lady, she was in fact Wife Number One in Bill’s one, big happy polygamous family of Sister Wives?
The only possible explanation for the fury of Mrs. Edwards, Mrs. Schwarzenegger and Mrs. Clinton was that they each quite separately and vividly felt their husband’s marital adventures had not a damn thing to do with any “Sister Wives.” Rather, each of these out-front liberal women saw what their husbands were doing — what Kody Brown is doing — as a full-on assault on their own marriages. And they raised hell because of it.
Here is a news account of the testimony of an Edwards aide, Cristina Reynolds, who was present when Mrs. Edwards learned about the National Enquirer story saying her husband was having an affair with her Sister Wife Rielle Hunter:
Reynolds recounted what happened after John and Elizabeth Edwards arrived at Raleigh-Durham International Airport on that day in October 2007 when the National Enquirer broke news of his affair.
By that time, they were in separate cars, and “Mrs. Edwards was very upset.”
“She stormed off and collapsed into sort of a ball in the parking lot,” Reynolds said.
Reynolds and another aide took her into a bathroom, so she could compose herself. But Elizabeth stormed out and said “something to the effect of, ‘You don’t see me anymore,’” Reynolds recalled.
She then ripped off her shirt and bra.
