John Edwards & Current TV? The Joke is Already Stale

Current TV was a bastion of ridicule yesterday as former Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.) was acquitted on charges of campaign finance abuse. What’s his next step, a seat alongside fellow cheating liberal louse Eliot Spitzer? Better yet, how about a talk show trio of Spitzer, Edwards and ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Hotdogville)?

Journalists in the Beltway and beyond couldn’t resist suggesting that Current TV give Edwards a spin.
