Somebody other than John Edwards gets roasted


It looked like it would be a bad week for former senator John Edwards, leading the news cycle with his rejection of a plea bargain on charges of misusing campaign donations.

"Prison Time for the Deal Breaker!" screamed the tabloids.

He needed something to distract the media... but the earthquake and tsunami had hit Japan months before. And NATO air strikes in Libya were no longer news either.

Lindsay Lohan? Who can remember if she's in jail or out? And who cares?

No, Edwards would need something new. Something big. Something really big.

What a Weiner.
