A Note to the Mainstream Media: Drop the Edwards Affair

Enough is enough, it is time for the mainstream media to let go of the John Edwards affair and get back to real journalism.
Enough.

Let it go.

What is this accomplishing?

Today the New York Times continues to hammer the Edwards affair as if it were vital to the future of this nation.

"But what if?", you might say. "What if he had gotten the nomination?"

If he'd been the nominee, we'd be utterly screwed right now. But he isn't, and to the extent that we are screwed at all because of this, it's because of the double standard in the media in handling Democrats' peccadilloes as opposed to those of Republicans.
