99 Percent Honesty

It finally comes out that John Edwards cheated on his wife who had cancer at the time. His official statement about it since don’t do much for me but dig the whole deeper. From his official statement:

Although I was honest in every painful detail with my family, I did not tell the public. When a supermarket tabloid told a version of the story, I used the fact that the story contained many falsities to deny it. But being 99% honest is no longer enough.

I don’t think denying an affair because some of the details are inaccurate is being 99% honest. More like 1% honest.

The other gem of a comment from the Times’ coverage is this:

The network said that Mr. Edwards “made a point of telling Woodruff that his wife’s cancer was in remission when he began the affair with Hunter.”

I guess cheating on your wife is cool if her cancer is in remission.
