Now for a recommendation in my absence. I'm reading Game Change by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin and finding it completely engaging. It's the inside story of big politics for little political junkies and I can't get enough.
But here's the kicker: the most fascinating player thus far in these pages is John Edwards. I simply cannot peel my eyes from him.
That a man who was so close to being the Democratic candidate for President was screwing a broad whose business card read, "BEING IS FREE: RIELLE HUNTER—TRUTH SEEKER," stuns me to no end. And just wait'll you get a load of Elizabeth.
Need a better teaser? Dig this excerpt.
I'll just say it. Edwards was the hidden Palin of the Democratic party in 2008. Thank Christ he didn't make it out of the primaries.
I'm only on Chapter 10. I just hope this book can keep on delivering. I haven't even gotten to McPalin yet.
When I'm done with this, I intend to start tackling this list, at least in part. The interviews I've heard with Lewis on The Big Short have my eye teeth dripping.
Have a great weekend everybody.
