The Dynamic Duo

The madness continues.

No, not March Madness. If you’re interested in seeing just how much productivity goes down the drain this week as your office mates huddle over their brackets, click here.

I’m talking about Rielle Hunter. Who’s she? If you don’t know her, you might know her boyfriend. His name is John Edwards. Actually she says she called him “Johnny.” He wanted to be president. A lot of people thought that was a good idea. He was actually the Democratic nominee for vice president, running with John Kerry in 2004.

These days Edwards is known more for his dalliance with Hunter, with whom he fathered a child, which he denied until he was literally caught with his pants down by the National Enquirer. This while his wife, Elizabeth, was battling cancer.


Hunter is in the news this week. She gave an interview to Esquire magazine about her relationship with the would-be president.

It includes the obligatory photo spread, including a shot of her in just what appears to be a man’s shirt – and not much else – while surrounded by kids’ toys.


I skimmed the interview. She appears every bit as kooky as I first thought.

And I am left only with this, wondering why exactly it is that we shower such publicity on people.

Rielle Hunter and John Edwards deserve each other.
