John Edwards Vows To End All Bad Things By 2011
John Edwards Vows To End All Bad Things By 2011
July 16, 2007 | Issue 4329




AMES, IAIn an effort to jump-start a presidential campaign that still has not broken into the top Democratic tier, former Sen. John Edwards made his most ambitious policy announcement yet at a campaign event in Iowa Monday: a promise to eliminate all unpleasant, disagreeable, or otherwise bad things from all aspects of American life by the end of his second year in office.

"Many bad things are not just badthey're terrible," said a beaming Edwards, whose "Only the Good Things" proposal builds upon previous efforts to end poverty, outlaw startlingly loud noises, and offer tax breaks to those who smile frequently. "Other candidates have plans that would reduce some of the bad things, but I want all of them gone completely."

1. I gather y'all didn't think this was funny.
Well, darn! :dunce:

At least I didn't post it in GD, where the Edwards-heads might have flamed me to a cinder! :D

I have nothing against John, I just thought it was funny. :silly:
