Breakfast Scramble: Lying Lizzie Edwards, Dead But Still Deadly

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Revenge from beyond the grave, Lying Lizzis strikes out at her  ex, from Mail [1](UK):

In a final act of revenge, Elizabeth Edwards secretly recorded a testimony in her dying days that helped prosecutors indict husband John last week, it was claimed today.

John Edwards is due to stand trial on charges that could lead to a 30-year jail sentence after he pleaded not guilty on Friday to using $925,000 in campaign funds to cover up an affair and love child.
The estranged wife of the former presidential candidate is alleged to have filmed a damning testimony that was central to the prosecution’s case for charges.

Friends said the cancer victim, who died in December, wanted to ‘haunt’ her estranged husband and his mistress Rielle Hunter, with whom he fathered a child and made a sex tape.

Climate change strikes Gingrich campaign, Newt Gingrich’s campaign staff melts down and dissolves,  from Allah Pundit, Hot Air [2]:

Breaking so hard that I don’t even have a link for you yet, but Carl Cameron is reporting on Fox News as I write this that the entire senior circle — everyone, basically — is jumping ship based on “a difference of opinion” with Gingrich on the direction of the campaign. Presumably that’s not a reference to his criticism of Ryan’s Medicare plan; if it was, they would have dumped him already. It might be a reference to their exasperation at Newt taking off for a little vacation right as the campaign’s heating up.

Color me less than heart broken.

More Fred Barnes, Weekly Standard [3]:

The problem was the wife. Aides to Newt Gingrich have resigned from his presidential campaign in protest of what they felt was a takeover by Callista Gingrich, the candidate’s wife since 2000.

[..]

While Gingrich was away, his aides talked among themselves about the course of the campaign. They wanted him to commit to seeking the Republican nomination on a full-time basis, including time spent in personal fundraising by Gingrich himself. Gingrich balked at this. His wife wanted him to pursue the presidency at less strenuous clip.

“The professional team came to the realization that the direction of the campaign they sought and Newt’s vision for the campaign were incompatible,” strategist David Carney told Jonathan Martin of Politico. The advisers believed Gingrich could not win the nomination without campaigning full-tilt.

We have seen over the last two plus years the price the nation has to pay for lazy president.  Thank  Mrs. G.

How is that racial  taboo working? We have a race problem in this country and we will not talk about it.    You can not solve social problems by not talking about them, from John Kass, Chicago Tribune. [4]

No Shat Sherlock, from Steve McCann, American Thinker [5]:

President Obama is in deep water, well over his head, in the misbegotten Libya adventure into which he dragged America. His public statements reveal the degree of the debacle.

Well Dubya may have been a cowboy, but unlike Dumbo, b/k/a Barack Obama, Forty Three was not stupid.

More Weiner Gate, from Nice Deb [6]:

Nice Deb is sometimes too timid to say what she really thinks. Especially in a situation as delicate as this one.

But Andrew Breitbart has paved the way for other doubting Thomases by saying (in his opinion), the news of Huma’s pregnancy is *probably* a PR attempt and a ploy to make people not want to report on the Weinergate scandal

Nice Deb can afford to be discrete, for her readers are not so discrete, nor dumb as the lame stream media.

There are wives and their are political wives.   Wives put their marriage first.  Political wives put their political career first.   Is the Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin  a real wife or lust a politician using a faux marriage for political cover?    Can’t say, just yet.

However Abedin is a close political aide to one Mrs. B.J. Clinton, who is very much a political wife.    When the Gennifer Flowers scandal was threatening B.J.’s presidential campaign, Mrs. Clinton went on Sixty Minutes to deny the entire affair.

When allegations of the Monica Lewinsky affair again threatened  B.J’s political career, Mrs. Clinton called the allegations a product of a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, and have my membership card etched into my memory.    Despite the appearance of the now infamous blue dress, Mrs. Clinton has issued neither an apology or retraction.

Mrs. Clinton clearly cares more about her political career than the continuing sexualYmisadventures of her cad husband.    Is Huma Abedin cut from the same bolt of cloth?

Stacy asks;

When Will Weiner Quit?

My hunch says today but, rationally, politicians always prefer to save bad news for after 7 p.m. on a Friday

The little guy is useful for sport and is poison to the liberals   Go Tony, go.
