Commenting, lammenting, punditizing the events that affect folks in Southern Iowa.

What a delusional pandering little twerp.You're right though. That's some mighty fine hair he has. I mean some mighty fine hair. I mean I'm no poofter when it comes to hair but it's just some kind of nice. You know what would be cool? Edwards and Romney having a no-holds barred fight for their hair in a steel cage. The winner shaves the other's head. I'm not a fan but I think Romney with the help of his enchanted underwear could take Edwards. I dunno though. Edwards is a lawyer so you know he'd fight dirty especially if his hair is at stake.
If I remember correctly, you supported Ed Fallon in the Democratic Primary. Many of the same things Fallon campaigned for, Edwards is pushing. Why do you loathe John Edwards, yet were positive towards Fallon? If Edwards was bald, would you like him more?
Ah, the difference between Fallon and Edwards is this:1) Fallon is an honest dealer. I don't think Edwards is.2) Fallon didn't take PAC money, indicating a higher level of integrity. Edwards doesn't have that level.3) Fallon was running for governor, Edwards for President. A big difference in positions.
I should clarify a bit more - Fallon actually came down to The South of Iowa and bagged groceries at the local grocery store. He has been involved in a CSA in his neighborhood. He's walked the walk that he talked about. In a politician, that's honesty and credibility. Building a $29 million home, receiving $500K from a hedge fund to "learn" about poverty, and (yes, I'll say it) getting $400 haircuts does not show any credibility on Edwards part. He can say the things he does, but to me, they are not realistic - you might as well have Dick Cheney lecture you on gun safety, it's the same effect. A big fat (or as they say near Drake, phat) phoney.Plus, Fallon rocks on the accordion.
Edwards doesn't accept PAC money or money from Lobbyists.Edwards set up a college fund in a poor area of North Carolina where someone who is qualified for college can work a certain number of hours a week and get tuition paid for. He also set up a Poverty Center at UNC to study policy and come up with ways to help people get out of poverty.Edwards is running a carbon neutral campaign and he used green building techniques when building his house.The main difference between Fallon and Edwards is that Edwards is wealthy. Just because you are wealthy and live a wealthy lifestyle, doesn't mean you don't care about people living in poverty.
