Two rich, dishonest and narcissistic adulterers with expensive hair are spotlighted in Greensboro

In case you had any doubt that it helps a lot in modern American politics to be rich — I mean really rich — consider the case of two former candidates for President who have or will stand before banks of TV cameras in Greensboro, North Carolina this week.

One is a rich, dishonest and narcissistic adulterer with expensive hair. The other is…a rich, dishonest and narcissistic adulterer with expensive hair.

Here’s the big difference between the two (other than their politics — a place where one of the two has actually expressed concern for the less fortunate at times during his life): One guy is pretty rich and the other guy is REALLY rich.

Now, guess which one just missed going to jail by the skin of his teeth and which one will be treated like royality while serving as the keynote speaker of the North Carolina Republican Party convention.

See what I mean about the importance of being REALLY rich?

    Very funny!

    I should also add that the NC Democratic party is looking for a Chairman and John Edwards is looking for a job. I think he will be the perfect fit considering his low moral compass.

    Actually, Edwards’ best bet for a comeback would be to follow the lead of countless conservative “Christian” pastors and pols (e.g. Rush Limbaugh, Ralph Reed, Senator David “I love prostitutes” Vitter) and let some conservative church absolve him of all sins. Then he could become a right-wing radio host. The GOP/Koch/theocrats would embrace him within months.

    Rob, don’t forget the great Larry Craig, no conservative cruises men’s restrooms like that guy, or GOP darling Mark Foley soliciting male congressional pages, man I miss those guys.
