Presidential candidate John Edwards, who has run on a platform of crusading against poverty, when not working for a Hedge Fund between elections, a fund which caters to the very wealthy, was paid $55,000 to speak to a crowd at the University of California, a taxpayer funded school, on January 9, 2006.

Edwards recently proposed an education policy that urged “every financial barrier” be removed from American kids who want to go to college. This taxpayer funded University could have used that money to help offset a 7 percent tuition increase that harms the very people Edwards purports to help.

If Edwards is serious about kids being able to afford going to college, then why didn’t he speak at the public school pro bono because he believes in his message, rather than for 50K. This guy is shameless in so many ways (see my blog of April 26, 2007) that this even sounds insignificant against a long list of inconsistencies and contradictions this fake trails for us all to trip over.

Amazing how this stuff is so thinly reported. But if you rely on the likes of Gibson, Couric, Williams and Blitzer, not to mention your local petty-sensationalism-for-news TV channels 4, 7, and 2 for your information, then you can expect nothing more. Edwards, the esteemed and shameless trial lawyer from North Carolina, commanded $285,000 in speaking fees from universities alone in 2006.

Enter fringe presidential candidate nut Ron Paul.
The leader of the conspiracy theory group Student Scholars for 9/11Truth, snuck into a candidate house party and enjoyed the following exchange with Republican presidential candidate, Congressman Paul:

CONSPIRACY NUT: “We’ve heard that you have questioned the government’s official account (of 9/11).”
REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE NUT: “Well, I never automatically trust anything the government does when they do an investigation because too often I think there’s an area that the government covered up, whether it’s the Kennedy assassination or whatever.”

Ron Paul appears to be “Pandering in the 9/11 conspiracy swamp,” as Michelle Malkin puts it. He’s clearly swerving into Rosie O’Donnell territory.

Many Republicans in Congress continue to commit political suicide by endorsing the Immigration Bill that is being shoved down our throats by the Democrat majority. The Democrats want a vote on the Bill before…that’s BEFORE… the bill is written in its entirety. This is another amnesty bill that goes much, much further than the bill that was passed in 1986 that granted amnesty to approximately three million illegal immigrants. Here go your taxes again. Among the illegals who will be granted visas and will be impossible to deport under this bill, are over 30,000 international gang members. One more time…30,000 international gang members!

Immigration, particularly illegal immigration is a very complicated subject that deserves much consideration and debate. There is absolutely a critical niche in our economy for immigrants, illegal and otherwise. That said, we have no capacity to absorb and give benefits to between 12 and 20 million illegal immigrants. The operative descriptive here is ILLIEGAL! Hell, this a subject we can take up some other time.

I promise, this is the last of Jimmy Carter for a while…or at least until he opens his mouth to trash his own country on foreign soil again! He has retreated somewhat from the remarks he made to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette where he told a reporter “as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history.” Now he says his remarks were “careless or misinterpreted” and that he was only comparing the Bush Administration’s foreign policy to that of Richard Nixon. He said he did not mean to call it the worst in history. And then, he tried to blame it on the reporter for misrepresenting his statement! But surprise!...The reporter had the tape to back it up! So the twit lies too. Apology accepted, Jimmy! Separately, I don’t take back anything I said about Carter…I meant every word of it!

Go see “Shrek The Third!”
