    John McCain. Then Newt Gingrich. And now John Edwards.

    ...

    Edwards' betrayal of his wife at her most vulnerable moment -- as a cancer patient -- is more common than conventional wisdom suggests, according to infidelity experts.

    A mistress of former House Speaker Gingrich told Vanity Fair they had their tryst as his first wife recovered from uterine cancer surgery in the 1980s.

    While McCain was married to his first wife, who was disabled from a car accident, he was "aggressively courting a 25-year-old woman who was as beautiful as she was rich," according to a New York Times colunmist's account of the 1970s incident that predated McCain's election to the Senate.

    Both McCain and Gingrich have admitted to the affairs.

    They are all a bunch of sick f...cks and should be voted out of office or just get out of politics... they have no place in leadership.

    We all agree on that, scumsuckers of the worst kind, when my kids were young and we went out for a walk the Politicians in Cambridge used stand on street corners handing out their sh!tty little "vote for me cards" I used to tell my wife to cross the street I didn't want my kids to get anywhere near the Vermin Bastards..........

    The first thing I thought of when I heard about Edwards was his wife who has cancer,and had it at the time John "The Weasel" Edwards cheated. He's all done politically and can never live this down.

    Believe it or not Patters I agree, I wouldn't let Cheney pat my dog, Chenet's face is a poster boy for the "Scummy Typical Politician Of The Year".

    Gingrich is a dirtbag like Edwards, the part about MCCain is very misleading verging on a lie. McCain wife was in the car accident while he was in the Hanoi Hilton, they were separated before he met his current wife. He was cheating on his wife after his return from the POW camp which led to the separation.

    McPain's situation is very different than Edwards or Gingrich.

    BTW is Newt running for anything??

    Newt is just another scumbag, lowlife.. used to get bj's from interns in the parking lot.. criteria for a leader these days.

    As far as McSame goes, a different take, no matter how you cut it it is not defensible... he is just like the rest, low life scumbag...

    The link shows an undocumented blog posting with no references, when you click on the authors name the link is dead???
    Thsi doesn't seem very credible.


    The story was reported differently by the AZ Republic back in 1999:

    I think it's amazing that we have this discussion with no mention of Billy "Curved-Stick" Clinton.

    http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-na-divorce11-2008jul11,0,4595785,full.story

    In his 2002 memoir, "Worth the Fighting For," McCain wrote that he had separated from Carol before he began dating Hensley.

    "I spent as much time with Cindy in Washington and Arizona as our jobs would allow," McCain wrote. "I was separated from Carol, but our divorce would not become final until February of 1980."

    An examination of court documents tells a different story. McCain did not sue his wife for divorce until Feb. 19, 1980, and he wrote in his court petition that he and his wife had "cohabited" until Jan. 7 of that year -- or for the first nine months of his relationship with Hensley.

    Although McCain suggested in his autobiography that months passed between his divorce and remarriage, the divorce was granted April 2, 1980, and he wed Hensley in a private ceremony five weeks later. McCain obtained an Arizona marriage license on March 6, 1980, while still legally married to his first wife.

    There's been more than 1 study done on the connection of sex and politics ... of course we (the people) are part of that because we are
    always getting screwed.

    "The marriage had been strained by his years of absence, along with McCain's admitted affairs after returning from Vietnam. "

    what's the difference, hair splitter? he's a liar, an adulterer, and a war monger...

    but then, you'll no doubt vote for the zombie anyway...

    You're free to vote for whomever you like ... but to knock a guy for a fractured state of mind after returning from Vietnam?

    Only a "hater" of a liberal would tread those waters.

    Lot's of guys did and do regretfull things after returning from war.
    It's the weak and despicable among us that hate on them for it rather
    than leave that stuff alone and consider it personal to themselves and their families.

    It is still called adultery if you are f..ing around when you are legally married, I also believe that there are other affairs mixed in here. There is no other way to define it.. this also occured after she had a serious car accident.. I know you want this clown to be your messiah, but he has a lot of skeletons in his closet.

    What an embarrassment of a double-standard poster you truly are...

    So now you're making exceptions for violating the "sanctity of marriage" when in fact your candidate of choice has returned from captivity? Noted. ... Yes, his fractured state of mind made him go balls deep with another woman..... LOL.

    And what about that blonde campaign "friend" of "Maverick's" he's shown holding hands with? Clearly, he hasn't recovered, and he should be free to ball any woman who still shows him attention. Afterall, he suffered so that we could "remain free." Nevermind that it was a police action (not a war) in the midst of a civil war, just like Iraq.

    Look ... I think men who cheat on their wives are scum ... but there's always more to every story and I don't think we should judge them based on their marital history. If that's the case then Bush was a great President because there are no stories of him cheating.

    Picking on a person who has returned from war is off limits in my opinion also.

    BTW ... I may pick on Obama but I prefer him over McCain ... I have said that many times ... he is the lesser evil in my opinion.

    If McLame was separated from his wife, but not divorced, then I wouldn't be all that critical of it. Basically that means they both know it's not going anywhere, and they don't need a legal document to tell them that. That'd be a mutual split. Not favorable, but it happens all the time. However, if he was boning some other chic while married, AND his wife thought all was well in the marraige, then he can go fukc himself too. Thankfully, I'm not voting for the guy, so if he indeed is a loser who cheated on his wife, it won't affect me come November. My line of thinking on these things is easy. I don't care what people do sexually in their private lives. I do care if/when they are public servants. I won't vote for a loser like that. The Vitters, Edwards, gov from NY, and McLame's of politics will never get my vote. Ever.

    Do not understand this comment, is this in relation to screwing around or just a generalized statement that all vets get a bye??

    Does it make a difference if she was seriously injured in a car accident and was going for a series of operations that eventually rendered her 5 inches shorter?? I do not get any of this subtlety of cheating and then justifying it.. it is what it is. This will come into play much more so in the upcoming election, it has been said it was not with one woman, but with a series.. and somehow some of this seems to get justified as he was a vet.

    I the accident occured during a 7 yr forced separation that could make a difference. Clearly a couple seperated for 7 years under extreme stress may have a change of heart during that period.

    I must be in a minority here. I'm not convinced that a politician's personal life/sexual infidelities has all that much to do with his/her ability to do the job. There have been many leaders down through the years who had checkered personal lives but were effective (even inspirational) leaders.

    It might not affect their ability to do the job, but it certainly speaks to the volume of their charactor. Do you want Barry Bonds on your team? His being a total POS doesn't affect his performance afterall. How about Terrell Owens? Hey, for some, those types of guys are no-go zones, while for others, they're an instant sign. It's all up to the individual I guess.
