Wiener of the Week

This week the Wiener of the Week is John Edwards, professional candidate for president. This week he finally acknowledged the obvious and stepped down as a candidate for president.

You may have noticed that I haven't paid much attention to the Democrat side of the presidential election. That's because I consider Hillary Clinton to be the de facto candidate for Team Donkey. I think of it more as a coronation than an election this go around with the donkeys.

But you gotta hand it to the Breck girl - he gave it his best shot. He knew his only chance to win would be to run to the left of both Obama and Hillary - which means running just to the right of Vladimir Lenin, I suppose.

So why is John Edwards my Wiener of the Week? It's not like he committed some major act of asshattery. Let's just say it's because the first thing I think of when I look at John Edwards is "what a wiener!" And he was in the news. And it was a slow news week.

No one ever said this award would make sense or be consistent. What do you want? You get what you pay for...
