Funny you should say that since the story only broke after he lost and it could not hurt him anymore. You may recall his faults were well known way back when... but why report the news when you can sit on it untill it's time to publish a book.does Edwards still hold office because the amount of stories on him is truly amazing?
so if he would have won the story would have gone nowhere?Funny you should say that since the story only broke after he lost and it could not hurt him anymore.

CNN) -- Armed with signs reading "no taxation without deliberation" and "stop bankrupting America," tens of thousands of people spent national tax day at organized "tea party" demonstrations across the country, protesting what some view as excessive government spending and bailouts.
"I think it's only a matter of time before these people quit carrying signs and start doing something else," said Ed McQueen, an Ohio resident who attended the Chicago rally. "What that is, I don't know. Quit paying taxes? Are they going to start carrying sticks and clubs? I don't know."
Bloggers in Seattle, Washington, were the first to bring conservatives together for a rally on February 16 against what they saw as too many government handouts to banks, the auto and mortgage industries. Protests followed in Colorado and Arizona.
The embers turned into a raging fire when later that month, CNBC personality Rick Santelli went off on Obama's policies live on air.
Really? The article concludes with a poll showing most American's support Obama. They did by the way, the poor guy had only been in office 3 months.Liberal tea party critics aren't buying it. They call the protests "Astroturf," saying they aren't real grassroots events, but are organized by old-fashioned Republican Party bosses.
Meet these members of the Coffee Party Movement, an organically grown, freshly brewed push that's marking its official kickoff Saturday. Across the country, even around the globe, they and other Americans in at least several hundred communities are expected to gather in coffeehouses to raise their mugs of java to something new.
They're professionals, musicians and housewives. They're frustrated liberal activists, disheartened conservatives and political newborns. They're young and old, rich and poor, black, white and all shades of other.
Facebook? For reals?Born on Facebook just six weeks ago, the group boasts more than 110,000 fans, as of Friday morning. The Coffee Party is billed by many as an answer to the Tea Party (more than 1,000 fewer fans), a year-old protest movement that's steeped in fiscal conservatism and boiling-hot, anti-tax rhetoric.
Touching story actually. Much hipper than those racist Tea Party people who's racism were bound to find proof of any day now.Hopkins was 5 when she stared at the two water fountains: one marked "colored," the other "white." The New Yorker was somewhere in Virginia at a train stop with her mother and grandmother, and, well, she'd never drunk colored water before and figured white was what she wanted. But her grandmother yanked her away from that water, muttering something about her getting them all killed.
Another great story...really it is. And so much cooler than those racist Tea Party people who's racism we are bound to find proof of... hey it's only been a yearTony Anderson likes to say he was born into an organization. He has a twin brother and learned early on what it meant to work with others. Through church involvement and his family, the Detroit, Michigan, native gleaned more.
His great-grandmother's first cousin was the legendary civil rights activist Rosa Parks, whom he grew up calling "Aunt Rosa."
Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion: Coffee Party ParasitesNothing wrong with either of those things but they might have been worth mentioning in last nights New York Times love letter to this exciting new nonpartisan civic group, might they not? William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection has all the links you need, but before you read his post, re-read the Times puff piece and see if you can find any indication that this group skews left.
Thanks for being on top of all this "objective" media!The New York Times and Washington Post are promoting a group called the "Coffee Party" organized by filmmaker Annabel Park.
The Coffee Party is a political parasite which presents itself as something it is not. As reported in the NY Times [see update below], Park presents herself as not hostile to the Tea Party movement, and in fact, hopes to bring some Tea Partiers into her group:
Were not the opposite of the Tea Party, Ms. Park, 41, said. Were a different model of civic participation, but in the end we may want some of the same things. ....
Ms. Park and chapter organizers said they would invite Tea Party members to join their Coffee counterparts in discussions. We need to roll up our sleeves, put our heads together and work it out, she said. Thats, to me, an American way of doing this.
In fact, a simple internet search (which the NY Times apparently is not capable of doing) reveals that Park organized the Coffee Party for the specific purpose of undermining the Tea Party movement.
Park is a former Strategy Analyst [Park's Linked In page has been taken down, here is a cached link] at the NY Times who was one of organizers and operators of the United for Obama video channel at YouTube:
