Least Shocking Bloggity Ever: John Edwards, You ARE The Baby’s Father
I know. Totally shocking, huh? And by totally shocking, I mean so obvious that even Perez Hilton could have figured it out. From Hot Air (they also have video, if you need to purge):
Former presidential candidate John Edwards abandoned his long denial that he had fathered a child during an affair with a campaign aide and admitted today that he is the father of the almost 2-year-old girl.
“I am Quinn’s father,” Edwards said in the bombshell statement this morning. “I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves.
The former senator and presidential hopeful had an affair with campaign cinematographer, Rielle Hunter, 42, and she later give birth to Frances Quinn.
“I have been able to spend time with her during the past year and trust that future efforts to show her the love and affection she deserves can be done privately and in peace,” Edwards statement said, referring to the little girl.
“It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me,” the statement said.
“To all those I have disappointed and hurt, these words will never be enough, but I am truly sorry,” he said.
ABC News had the cojones to call this a “bombshell admission.” Yes, that is how stupid they believe the general public to be.
So glad you are going to show her “love and affection” NOW, John. After insanely denying paternity, when everyone knew you were the father, and allegedly committing fraud to cover it up. If only the press had done its job years ago, we would have been spared your primpy mug and feathered hair endlessly, along with your tiresome Two Americas spiel. At least now you are admitting that you not only want Two Americas so that you can admire yourself twice, but that you also need Two Americas for Two Baby Mamma.
