The news today is all over John Edwards, who apparently has a mistress and a "love" child.
In one sense, that's not unusual. Tons of men, in particular athletes, have kids out of wedlock because they can't be bothered to wear a condom and think it's the women's role to "protect" herself against getting pregnant, and some women who have sex with wealthy men frankly want to get pregnant so they can make money out of the guy.
But politicians are supposed to be smart, aren't they? Politicians must realize - at least since Bill Clinton - that they are under scrutiny by the press and no quarter will be given (although Democrats seem to get away with things more often than Republicans, when it comes to press coverage.)
Yet politician John Edwards not only had a mistress, he also got her pregnant!
Jesus Christ, male politicians! If you're going to have affairs, don't trust condoms, don't trust the woman and her promises that she uses birth control. Get a vasectomy for God's sake!
Otherwise, you too, eventually, will end up like John Edwards.
