John Edwards' Handsome Booty

John Edwards should work for The Onion. He recently stated that he took a job at a hedge fund to 'learn about poverty' (kinda like O.J. Simpson looking for Nicole's killers on Southern California's golf courses), and we later learned that this hedge fund, Fortress Investment Group, undewrote those horrid subprime loans that good liberals are supposed to loathe.

Now Instapundit tells us that Edwards' investments through Fortress entitles him to a share of sunken treasure!

After this, the $400 haircuts, and that monstrous house of his, can anyone take Edwards seriously as a Man of the People™? Why, yes they can! Because Edwards means well, and mouths the right homilies and liberal bromides. That is all that matters, to some.

P.S. Tigerhawk mentioned the 'Black Swan' wreck some time ago when it was merely an interesting numismatic tale. Who knew the Breck Girl would get in on this one?

Every time this guy leaves home and/or opens his mouth he becomes a political cartoon character.

I have always said, " If you talk the talk, you gotta walk the walk, not buy the sidewalk."

Why do politicians always have to be obscenely wealthy, anyway?

I mean, who the hell gets a share of sunken treasure like that? Even in the wealthier half of America, that is just over-the-top.

John Edwards is a political pimp. All he needs is the big car, a flashy hat.

His sunken treasure, along with his sunken soul, will not deliver any meaningful improvement to the class of people he is out pimping for.

Speaking of sunken treasures and nautical terms, he is the sludge in the bilges of the ship we know as politics.

He was an advisor to the investment company. You have to wonder whether they needed his advice, or his connections to get all the special permissions one needs to do this sort of work.

Maybe not. Maybe I'm assuming what's not there.
