Morning, y’all, Jebediah Murphy here on another gorgeous White Trash Wednesday. I reckon I’ll admit I am a bit pressed for time, ye olde server needed a swift kick in the reboot, apparently. But, I have noticed a curious coincidence. Starting with John Edwards (D-Breck). The National Enquirer dropped a story that My Little Silke Pony had a love child (taking the text from Outside the Beltway, as the NE has pulled the story. See more at Memeorandum)
The woman linked to Presidential candidate John Edwards in a cheating scandal is more than six months pregnant and telling a close confidante that Edwards is the father of her unborn child, The NATIONAL ENQUIRER has learned exclusively.
The NATIONAL ENQUIRER’s political bombshell comes just weeks after Edwards emphatically denied having an affair with Rielle Hunter, who formerly worked on his campaign.
But The ENQUIRER has now confirmed not only that Rielle is pregnant, but she is also living in Chapel Hill, N.C. in a gated community, just a few streets away from Andrew Young, who has been a key official in Edwards’ campaign.
Interestingly, we are also finding out in this front page, high value story of importance at CNN
Jamie Lynn Spears, the 16-year-old “Zoey 101″ star and sister of Britney, told OK! magazine that she’s pregnant and that the father is her boyfriend, Casey Aldridge.
“It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected,” she said. “I was in complete and total shock and so was he.”
Spears is 12 weeks along and initially kept the news to herself when she learned of the pregnancy from an at-home test and subsequent doctor visit, she told the celebrity magazine, which hits stands in New York on Wednesday and the rest of the country by Friday.
Coincidence? Serendipidy? A curious link more likely, otherwise known as “white trash.”
I do love that it was a “complete and total shock.” If you are spreading your legs for casual sex without protection, it really shouldn’t be. She has all the makings of a good liberal, ‘cept she is pretty.
But, hey, I reckon if the first story is true a) Edwards will win the Dem nomination, cause that’s the kind of people they are, and b) it won’t matter, cause Liz Edwards will kill him.
Teach adds: last time I looked, JLS lived in Louisiana, where the age of consent was 17. Wouldn’t that mean that Aldridge could be charged with Felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile? If Mississippi, the laws would apply, too.
Update from Jeb: TMZ is reporting that little sister Spears is a bit farther on with her pregnancy then first reported, so expect a spring child. That Silke Pony link is looking stronger, eh?
Random Thought: how soon till the MSM is dragged kicking and screaming into covering the Edwards story, especially if it is true?
Final missive: late afternoon on the 19th, all the media started wondering “hmmm, could Casey be prosecuted? Should he be prosecuted?” Stories such as this. They really need to speed up their thought processes. I had that figured out in the morning.
