John Edwards just released a video of him talking about how “they” want to shut him up. He doesn’t explain who “they” are, but he plans on beating them and keep talking. He does say that “they” make over a $100 million a year, and compares them to the swift boaters. According to Edwards, “You know, I’m out there speaking up for universal healthcare, ending this war in Iraq, speaking up for the poor. They want to shut me up. That’s what this is about. Let’s distract from people who don’t have health care coverage. Let’s distract from people who can’t feed their children…. Let’s talk about this silly frivolous nothing stuff so that America won’t pay attention.” I am sure the silly frivolous stuff is the $400 haircuts, and the fact he lives in a big mansion. It is true that “they” didn’t have near as much to say about Mitt Romney’s huge make up costs. I wonder if he ever thought that “they” might be some of his own Democratic rivals, and not the evil conservative media. Who ever it is Edwards plans on fighting them. Edwards said, “If we don’t stand up to these people, if we don’t fight em, if we don’t beat them, they’re going to continue to control this country. They’re going to control the media. They’re going to control what’s being said.” That’s just funny. The right wingers claim the left wingers control the media, while the left wingers claim the right wingers control the media. And now with bloggers it is all out of control! I am just wondering how he plans on beating them. Is Edwards advocating some sort of censorship?
