Uh oh, it looks like one of the four people in the Presidential race has gotten the attention of the National Enquirer.
In a world exclusive The NATIONAL ENQUIRER names GOP VP Candidate Sxxxx Xxxxn's secret lover! No less than three members of the man’s family including one by sworn affidavit have claimed that Sxxxx Xxxxn engaged in an extramarital affair with husband Todd’s former business partner, Brad Hanson. These sources have named Hanson as Pxxxx’s secret love, and say their affair nearly wrecked both their marriages.I'm not going to dignify the story by revealing the candidate's name. I've long maintained that candidate's messy personal lives are not my business, or yours.
I only bring it up because when the Enquirer published a not dissimilar story about John Edwards, I heard an awful lot of complaining about how long it took the mainstream media to pick it up and run with it. About how this was a legitimate examination of the candidate's character; about how the Enquirer is a legitimate source of information nowadays.
Suck it up, boys.
