Jesse James faces the Nation on Nightline for his requisite ‘What were you THINKING?’ interview. Will he match the refreshing honesty of his Public Apology, in which he said, “I deserve every bad thing that’s coming my way.” Stay tuned for James Watch updates.
Meanwhile, even I (whose own modest campaign contribution may have been ‘misused’) felt Sympathy for the Devil in reading that (according to the Enquirer, our nation’s Paper of Record on this particular trainwreck), John Edwards is understandably ‘terrified of jail’ and is desperately plea-bargaining with prosecutors who are applying ‘the screws.’ Edwards, the intrepid Enquirer assures us, will at least, at last, admit ‘some guilt.’
While I’m not hoping to see the thoroughly disgraced Edwards led away in chains, I’m not rooting for a Happy Ending for the equally disgraced but less accomplished Mark Sanford and his Argentinian paramour. Sanford– in his usual TMI style– confirms that he and his erstwhile lover attempted to ‘reunite’ in Florida. Here’s hoping the lady’s poolside reading was Jenny Sanford‘s Mark-bashing bestseller.
Another cad on the Comeback Trail is former NY governor Eliot Spitzer, who has made a second career as a TV Talking Head, scoring gigs on CNN, MSNBC and Colbert. The smooth-talking Spitzer is allegedly under consideration to replace CNN’s Campbell Brown– who followed the Jesse James school of refreshing candor in her own Public Statement. Brown straightforwardly acknowledged that she wasn’t leaving her show to ‘spend more time’ with her family.
Campbell, in my book, deserves a Comeback more than any of these cads. WDYT? (And hey, how will Jesse do?)
PS: THANKS to JOHNNYCAKES for sending in this shocking link showing CNN at its worst…
