What a tangle web they weave...


Presidential candidate John Edwards and his family recently moved into what county tax officials say is the most valuable home in Orange County, North Carolina. The house, which includes a recreational building attached to the main living quarters, also is probably the largest in the county. The tax value will exceed $6 million when the facility is completed.

No word yet from the Edward's campaign on how many homeless New Orleans residents will be living there.

  • San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's re-election campaign manager resigned Wednesday after confronting the mayor about an affair Newsom had with his wife while she worked in the mayor's office, City Hall sources said.

  • Rep. Loretta Sanchez Accuses Democrat of Calling Her a 'Whore,' Resigns from Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

    wait. what? your chastizing someone for having a lot of money and buying a huge fancy house with it? why does their political affiliation matter? what about arnold schwarzenegger? he's a wealthy republican that probably owns a dozen homes and pays in excess of $16 million in taxes a year.

    John Edwards launched his campaign in New Orleans and talking about the desparities between rich and poor. Talking about global poverty and global warming. Does this house looks like its addressing the issue of poverty and the environment? Those are clear-cut trees Edwards done to make room for house.

    Usually people who do build these houses don't run against the things they are doing. This is just more of "don't do what we do, do what we say".

    Ah, ok. But... Democratic or republican, liberal or conservative, christian or atheist, hypocrisy is a fact of life. I see what you're saying, but it's really not that shocking. I get what you're trying to say, though...

    This isn't about having a big house. It's about being a hypocrite who cries about "Two Americas" and then makes sure he's got the biggest house in one of them.

    But, hey, maybe he cleared out that area for homeless people to encamp.

    He should enjoy his big house that he earned by the sweat of his brow. Oh, wait, he got it by suing people. Man, that's what the poor in America need to do...become ambulance chasers!
