Desperation Time for Edwards

John Edwards’ campaign is obviously in free fall and it’s really no surprise he is grasping at straws, this time aligning himself with those pathetic anti-free speech poo-bahs over at Moveon.org who are out to suppress Fox News. Edwards is apparently too busy to show up at the Fox-moderated Democratic presidential candidate debate in Nevada on August 14. (Yes, you read that right, August 14). I guess he’s been outflanked by Obama on the left and is already is desperation mode. It’s almost comical, really, a guy trying to build his left-wing cred at the same time as 28,000 square foot house. Make up your mind, fella. My guess is the Edwards campaign has been having serious fund-raising difficulties and he had to do something. Hey, he could always sell that house. (I know – the spec market’s a little down now.)
