The Sanctity of Marriage

McCain Obtained Marriage License with Cindy While Still Married to First Wife

While the news about Edwards’ affair has become front-page news, little attention has been paid to a recent report in the Los Angeles Times that exposed new details about how John McCain’s first marriage ended after he started an affair with his current wife. The paper revealed that McCain obtained an Arizona marriage license on March 6, 1980 to marry Cindy Hensley, even though at the time he was still legally married to his first wife, Carol.

I stole this from Dcup and Democracy Now

Here is another example of man at his worst, and the general hypocrisy.

Thank you for the link.

Would you believe that I just had an idiot anonymous commenter at my place try to say that McCain's thing was not big deal, but Edwards committed adultery and ruined what's left of Elizabeth's life?

He/she also threw in a Clinton rape list for good measure.

Fucking anonymous commenters. I hate 'em.

I've had an anonymous commenter on my novel--very complimentary. I love my anonymous commenter, unhelpful as praise is. Vig told me I'm sloppy with possessive and contractions. It's going to hell. And I'm its transport.

I'd link with you everyday, but I can't keep up with you. Poor mathman, trying to compete for your time when you're so generous with it elsewhere. We do need to talk again sometime. I could use help and I don't know how to pay you.

Now that was Mavericky. Go, Johnny, Go!

Sloppy possessives and contractions are easily remedied, so saying it's going to hell is a bit of a stretch. You might be seeing Virgil in the corner of your eye, but it's a long ass way to the ninth circle.

As I've said before, I'm less interested in where other people dangle their naughty bits, but am rather more concerned about getting screwed in other ways.

Here's a little background about how McCain't just loves him his lobbyist money.

And by "man" you meant (hu)man, yes?

You know of my recently deceased friend and her "marriages" and those of many of her friends ... in the service of a goal and all its Sunny details.

If I have one complaint about your 'writing', and this goes back to Barbie and her trump cards, it's that you can pull back the curtain with incredible insight but often spoil the view with an unnecessary follow-up bitch slap (bringing the attention back to you).

If it looks like dog shit and smells like dog shit, leave it alone.

Honey, I'm home!

Utah Savage said...

Welcome back! And now I'm really scared.

Phillip, did I ever tell you your avatar makes you look like a handsome and very young vengeful god looking down on me with disapproval?

Go Cindy, and to think my impression of her was of a drug induced dazed Stepford wife.

Even before the JRE betrayal broke, I never thought the Carol McCain argument was any different than an embrassment to the Progressive cause. Because it was trivial and superficial.

The "mortal sin" if we can call it that, is comparable. Elizabeth Edwards and Carol McCain were medically disadvantaged when they were two-timed. You can argue about that. Since I am a morally compromised mortal myself, I'm not taking either side up. I don't care a rat's ass. I just say, "So what?"

The political sin of McCain on his marital issue decades ago is infinitesimal compared to Edwards'. Republicans knew all about it when they nominated him. Voters knew all about it when they voted for him. It's part of McCain's persona, albeit negative.

But Edwards' faithfulness and family loyalty was part of his public and political persona. Voters bought it hook line and sinker. The were voting for Edwards drive for One America and his standing by Elizabeth. A whole 'nother kettle of fish. When he turns up a cropper, it's a stinking kettle of fish.

McCain is an asshole for his political loyalities and policies. Edwards is an asshole for his total lack of political loyalities. A self-diagnosed narcissist. A Royal Politically Disloyal Asshole.
