"Empty Suit" or just "Clueless"?
The Captain has a terrific post this morning referring to John Edwards, a/k/a The Breck Girl, as an "Empty Suit."
Actually, I beg to differ with the Captain a bit on this characterization.
Edwards is no different from the run-of-the-mill Democrats we have know the last say, 40 years or so. He opens his mouth and the words flow out. He fabricates whatever is necessary to please each particular audience. Those words do not have to make sense, nor can they hold up to the slightest bit of dissection (or thought), but they are spewed so easily, so confidently, many people come away thinking that guy sure knew what he was talking about. True, they could not explain it to you, but that guy sure is smart.
Edwards is wholly unqualified for running anything but a law firm, and no doubt he would excel in that. However, we need a President who will tell it like it is, and who has a firm grasp of the big picture.
Wait a minute! We already have a President like that. The scary part is that I see no one in the Democratic ranks I would trust with anything, and the thought of one of the current Democratic candidates being entrusted with the safety and security of my country, is enough to make my blood run cold.
P.S. Cowchild says the John Edwards sprite is the girliest sprite he has ever made.
