SATURDAY UPDATE: Richard Fernandez writes at Pajamas Media on John Edwards the legend formerly runnning for president, verses John Edwards the demythed man, hiding from the press in a bathroom stall in the basement of the Beverly Hilton last weekend.
The MSM and LA Times won't say a word about John Edwards and Rielle Hunter's alleged affair and love child, but the liberal Daily Kos does and will to their great credit. I've never heard male infidelity described as misogyny. Interesting:
"I am astounded that anyone would try to argue that infidelity is not misogynist. I guess I just have to agree to disagree on that one.
"Arguing that an extramarital affair - cheating on your sick wife, just like John McCain - is not inherently misogynistic is exactly the flaw in progressive thinking I was talking about above. Are we so blinded by our hero worship? Edwards' affair reveals him to see women - including is devoted wife of 30 years - as replaceable objects for his amusement. It does reveal volumes about his view of women. The honorable thing would have been to divorce his old wife and then marry the new one, not sneak around Beverly Hills hotels in secret.
"Is there a deep flaw here, in progressive ideology, that makes it blind to morality and family values? Or are we just being played for fools?"
Great rhetorical question. Glad you asked, Kos, though you already know the answer.
