DC Trawler

Speaking of doghouses, John Edwards sure is in one

I suppose it’s not sporting to kick a guy when he’s down, but he’s done so much to deserve it. CBS News reports:

With opening arguments in the trial of former U.S. senator and presidential candidate John Edwards set to begin on on Monday, a CBS News/New York Times poll shows that public opinion of him has plummeted since he was a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2007. Now, he is now most known for cheating on his wife.

The CBS/NYT poll reveals that only 3 percent of those polled hold a favorable view of Edwards, who has been charged with misusing campaign funds. That is down from 30 percent in 2007 when he was running for the Democratic nomination, which is also the last time the question was asked among registered voters.

What, has something happened since then?

Remember when the media bent over backwards to tell us Rielle Hunter wasn’t a legitimate news story? All that ink they spilled telling us all to shut up and get over it already? Remember how they acted like they were still the gatekeepers who got to set the agenda?

That dog don’t hunt.
