The Blogging Tories' Dr. Roy has all kinds of wisdom he'd like to share with John Edwards:
I am somewhat dismayed by Senator Edwards decision. His 57 year old wife has breast cancer metastatic to the bone. Her chance of survival for 5 years is about 20 %. It is probably less than that because of her age. She is likely to have fairly debilatating chemo soon.The couple has young children. They should have as much family time as possible now. Running for the presidency is not a good idea for this family right now.
The good doctor has a point. When your wife has cancer, it's not proper to continue in a grueling run for the presidency. The proper thing to do, of course, is wait until your wife has been hospitalized from that cancer, then serve her with divorce papers. After which you naturally try to cut off life insurance coverage for the children, get married again, then tell that wife that you want a divorce by phone because you've been boinking a much younger congressional aide during that time, all the while moralizing piously about a president who got caught getting a blowjob from an intern.
I'm not sure what could be funnier and more hypocritical than getting family advice from a hard right conservative, unless it's something like putting a serial teen predator in charge of protecting missing and exploited children.
Oh ... wait ...
