John Edwards spreads his charm among voters

If John Edwards were really going to be the first woman president, there is no way in hell he would have done this.

Ace captions it: "John Edwards' New Vow: Enact Universal Health Care Or I Will Cause An Epidemic By Wiping My Snot On Every Citizen In America."

The Edwards campaign responds: "Senator Edwards's snot is hypoallergenic. It's only right-wing Republican boogers -- I mean, bloggers -- who attempt to wipe their own insecurities on other people."

My grandmother used to tell a joke about the Yiddish theater. The story goes that during a performance of Othello, Othello (speaking in Yiddish-ized English) demands the handkerchief from Desdemona, getting more and more insistent: "Desdemona, da hanchika! Desdemona, da hanchika! Desdemona, da hanchika!" At this point, someone in the audience yells out, "Wipe it on your sleeve and get on with the show!"
