So, the National Enquirer reports that it caught 2004 Democrat Vice Presidential candidate Senator John Edwards with a mistress and a love child. In the article, Edwards denies the allegation in a way that sets up an old joke:
Edwards responded: “The story is false. It’s completely untrue, ridiculous,” adding: “Anyone who knows me knows that I have been in love with the same woman for 30-plus years.”
Too bad he didn’t finish with, “and if my wife finds out about her she will kill me.”
It would have wrecked his life but how often does a set up like that come along?
