This isn't the clip you're thinking of; not the one FOX "News" sometimes plays on an endless loop. Yes, John Edwards has purty hair, and yes he paid too much for a haircut or hairdresser, or whatever. I still say big deal.
Anyway, tonight, contributor and friend Lesto was saying he's sick of namby-pamby politicians who can't just speak honestly and forthrightly. Everything is focus-grouped, triangulated, and structured to gain supporters and not irk "the base."
What John Edwards should have done is probably get in front of a microphone, and say plainly and clearly that this non-issue is stupid, and not worthy of hours of cable news "debate." Instead, he did this, which was pretty close. I like it.
