Rielle Hunter Shows the Real John Edwards

Out of a couple of thousand (conservative estimate) unemployed film grads loitering around, the only one the John Edwards campaign could find is Rielle Hunter? They met in a bar, which sounds weird, but who knows? She sold him on the idea of webisodes to show the country the “real John Edwards”.

Sam Stein writes about the disappearance of the Hunter-Edwards oeuvre from the web. The Daily Kos readers are very upset with Stein and for good measure, Arianna.

The mini docs. cost the campaign a total of $100,000 and the only one remaining to view has Edwards telling us he’s not a “plastic Ken doll”. Money well spent!

Don’t forget, this is the guy who dumped bloggers Amanda Marcotte and Melissa McEwan when things got too sticky.
