Under the Dome

Edwards is in Haiti

The day before John Edwards admitted he fathered his mistress' daughter, he headed to Haiti to help with relief efforts.

Edwards is in Haiti now, working with a team of U.S. doctors who are aiding a Catholic relief group, his wife Elizabeth Edwards told Mandy Locke in an interview.

"Whatever the naysayers say is the truth, John actually cares about poverty issues," Edwards said by phone.

Since Edwards called off his campaign for president, he has been working on poverty issues in countries such as El Salvador and Haiti.

"He's been doing work outside of this country where his errors in judgment don't have any bearing on work," Elizabeth Edwards said.

(Caller): Quick! I’m in Haiti. I’m desperate . Send someone.

(eh): I’ll send John Edwards.

(Caller): Jesus Christ! I need help. Why are you sending John Edwards?

(eh): Oh, you must have dialed a wrong number. This is eharmony.

"Reports have begun to emerge from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti about a sudden boom in childbirths. All of the babies have beautiful hair and and the mothers have named them all John"
OK that was funny.

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

Please, Senator and Mrs. Edwards, stop the press releases. Raise your kids. Heal your family.
But please, John is out of power, he's old news, so just retire with your millions and enjoy yourself, and stop telling us about your personal lives!!!

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

The Edwards family (Mr & Mrs) : What a family! Why don't we ignore their actions. They ain't worthy of the media space you give to them.

Soooo, this is fine, right DOME?

WHO will be the NEXT NC democrackkk to FALL into flames of CORRUPTION?

Soooo, I can just call any group a Nazi Klan member I want, but I can't link to a COSMO article with newly appointed Senator Scott Brown partially nekkid (with his hands over the lil' Fetzer of course.)

WHY?

Is it the children? Are you protecting THE CHILDREN that read DOME from THE REPUBLICANS?

Well, me freaking too, but I protect them by supporting SCHIP, not hiding the next Mark Foley under a fig leaf of DENIAL.

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

Oh yes, I forgot. After going to the White House to help Clinton "recover" from his sins, Jesse Jackson admits that he got his secretary pregnant -- and paid her off with Operation Push (company) money!!!

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

Sign at the Port-Au-Prince Airport:

Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, they sent John Edwards.

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

Wow, what a humanitarian. I sure hope JohnBoy gets Rielle to produce a video of his relief efforts.

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

Will Rob Christensen be imbedded with The Edwards keeping us appraised of all their good deeds?

Reports have begun to emerge from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti about a sudden boom in childbirths. All of the babies have beautiful hair and and the mothers have named them all John.... after their daddy!

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

What a man! He'd make the perfect president or governor of North Carolina. Working in poverty does so much healing for the soul.

Gosh, I wish I were mobile and expendable! ~not

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

Edwards is a really piece of work.

First he waits 3 years to admit he fathered a child everybody under the sun knew he fathered. Then he flees to Salvador when Mary's book came out so he wouldn't have to deal with the press. Now he is claiming the child but he has again fled to another country to avoid dealing with the press on this announcement.

Since he headed to Haiti before the announcement, I have to wonder how he did it? Did he text it on his cell phone like some 13 year old breaking up with a girl for the first time?

Could the man be any more of a coward ???

Re: The naysayers

Elizabeth Edwards is reported to have said:

"Whatever the naysayers say is the truth...."

What a strange choice of words. Seems to me that the "naysayers" were telling the truth all along.....or at least implying that the truth had not yet been revealed.

I got to go with the "naysayers" on this one.

Re: Edwards is in Haiti, maybe they will do us a favor and stay

Good riddance, they have become an embarrassment to this state.

That you and yours just LOVE to comment on. Are you seeing any correlation here to coverage?

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

Yes, "totally scooped by the Enquirer."

Hey, when you sling enough crap at the wall, some is bound to stick? Right?

I bet something's even going on with Chaci right now!

Well, what do you know? Front page.

http://www.nationalenquirer.com/happydays_scott_baio_mocks_michelle_obama_death_threats/celebrity/68015

The FBI is investigating death threats against former "Chaci" Scott Baio for posting an unflattering picture of Michelle Obama online.

The Happy Days and Joanie Loves Chachi star ignited a sh*tstorm of controversy when he posted an unflattering picture of Michelle Obama on Twitter.

Is "sh*tstorm" AP style or Gonzo? I forget.

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

The Edwards’ can't stand not to be in the news, and this is another shot for poor Elizabeth to cry shame on you to those who have exposed them for the liars they are. One would think that given the severity of the statement her husband made today that this woman would be home trying protect her family, not creating more humiliation with these types of quotes.

Not surprising that the old N&Blow can’t help but print a feel good story about their fallen golden boy on the same day they HAVE to print a story that they go totally scooped on by the Enquirer. There’s all a bunch of crooks!

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

Good job John. Why do they bury lawyers 12 feet deep? Deep down, they're good.

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

Shameful!! Eddie!!! Those folks in Haiti have problems enough without you chansing their women around. I have an idea. Why don't you and slick willie get together and go to Saudi Arabia as missionaries to help the poor and down trodden. The spread between the haves and have nots in that country is far worse than anything in this hemisphere. Take some Bibles along and work on converting a few of em.

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

John Edwards has no shame and it looks like his wife is a chronic enabler who allows him to continue such dysfunctional behavior.

Re: Edwards is in Haiti

Why do we care about this Dirtbag, Ambulance chasing Ex-Senator?

On the other had , I wonder how many children he will father while he's there?

Got to love the Corrupt NC Democrat Machine!
