65. Liz, take the pledge at the Edwards site. You will feel better.
"Take the Pledge to Conserve Energy*
Government action and technological innovation alone will not solve our energy crisis or stop global warming. Americans must be willing to take action to change the way we use energy. Sign the pledge below to do all you can to conserve your energy usage and then ask others to join you in taking responsibility for America's future."

Just say these words, and you will be magically teleported to the world of double standard.

You see, no matter how many times you say it, it is not understood.

It's not that he is a poverty advocate. It's not that we hate wealth. It's not that we want to micromanage what you live in. (Special note to Californians with aggressive HOA's not included), and it's not that we do not like Edwards personally.

He is wealthy, running for President, and built a house. He built an enourmous McMansion. He has a history by running as VP to AL GORE the current leading advocate and voice for the environment in our party. Could he have made better choices in building his mega-home?

Yes. Just plain fucking yes.
