From the front page of MSN.com today:
I’m no fan nor despiser of John Edwards but… A politician had an affair? Oh no! That’s going to mean whatever foreign policy plan he makes is going to cause global thermonuclear war! The world is going to come crashing to a halt! 8/8/08, it must be a sign! It’s the end! THE END!!!
Run to the grocery store, stock up on food and water, and most importantly… DUCK AND COVER!
When a normal man has an affair, it’s a private matter. When a public figure has an affiar, not only to the supermarket tabloids but also to the mainstream media, this is a “developing story”. I didn’t bother to click.
