The Bush-drones have been sharing some information (some might call it misinformation or propaganda or lies, if they were being unkind) about John Edwards as a trial lawyer, repeating amongst each other that all his lawsuits have been frivolous, that these kinds of lawsuits are causing prices to go up, and they are providing little, demonstrably untrue statements such as "there are only nine gynecologists in Florida because of people like John Edwards."
Wow! Those mean Democrats! Everybody knows that big corporations always act in the best interests of the public, and on the rare occasion when they make a mistake, they immediately and cheerfully provide full and fair restitution. And so the noble Republicans must pass laws that restrict the publics right to sue, because the Republicans are trying to remove the restraints on aggressive capitalism caused by those terrible freedom-hating people who expect corporations to be responsible for things like food poisoning, air pollution, chemical spills, medical incompetence, faulty and fatal automobile design, ruinous business investments, plundering natural resources, supporting dictatorships and so on and so on.
For anyone who is interested in being fair and balanced on the subject of John Edwards, I've provided a link to an analytical article in The Washington Monthly.
Kerry and Edwards rock!
