The Thinking 

A Beautiful Boy

May 6, 2009


Americans apparently still care when national figures show contempt for traditional morality. The widespread interest in the hypocrisy, lies, and adulterous affair of John Edwards is a sign of life.

Edwards is the Dorian Gray of American politics.  No painter, however, could truly capture his self-conceived beauty. The canvas itself would rebel. Elizabeth Edwards is right to let the country know the full extent of his lies and she is right to decline to leave him. He made himself a poster boy for famly values. Now let him be a poster boy for deceit.
