Former Sen. John Edwards arrives with his wife Elizabeth for the late Sen. Edward Kennedy's memorial service in Boston Aug. 28, 2009. (AP Photo) Former presidential candidate John Edwards has admitted fathering his former campaign videographer's child. In a statement released to NBC News, Edwards said, "I am Quinn's father. ... It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me."

They are now saying the race in Massachusetts is to close to call. Who would have thought a month ago this was even possible? I see this as a win win for Republicans. In the bluest of blue states, even if Brown loses in a tight race, this spells disaster for the Democrats. Reid, Dodd (saw the handwriting), Pelosi, Frank, Specter, Schumer, Charles (should be jail) Rangel, all gone.
I just hope and pray this does not turn into the Minnesota debacle of Stewart Smalley and Norm Coleman. After a trial and months of recounting all the ACORN voters Smalley was seated as Senator. If Brown wins but its real close, look for the Democrats to pursue a recount and use anything and everything possible to prevent Brown from being seated. This man can sink Obamacare.
Watch what happens. When Kennedy died he wasn't even cold yet and the Democrats demanded an immediate replacement. If Scott Brown wins see if he gets the same treatment.

Imagine ancient Rome and these two as our political leaders. Fast forward to 2010. They are the political leaders! Maybe I'm just another "Conservative bomb thrower". I'll let you decide. Let me address a cataclysmic problem. Not only are Imbecilious and his top lieutenant Delirious going to try Gitmo POW's in a civilian court which is a mind-blowing mistake in itself; they want to shut down Gitmo and send the POW's to Yemen. The same Yemen that some of the USS Cole prisoners "escaped" from. Caving in to pressure from the far left, including the media, the Bush administration released POW's that they shouldn't have. So lets not repeat a failed policy! First and foremost the President's responsibility is: to serve and protect the people of the United States. I think we can all agree on that. After reading the article below how could anybody in their right mind consider closing down Gitmo. The President has made decisions without merit that make absolutely no sense.
Christmas day, a Yemeni, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab tried unsuccessfully to blow up a Northwest Airlines plane over Detroit. What if he succeeded? Does that.. have.. to happen? Or maybe, and I hate to say it, needs to happen. We need to wake up! 911 to most Americans and politicians alike has become distant as the memory of Pearl Harbor. Another place. Another time.
Mr. President. Al Qaeda is a snake. A snake has no friends. You can be nice to it all you want and pet it if you wish but in the end you're going to get bit.
So where is the rationale in all this? This is so"out there" it's hard to put your finger on it. Why would you release terrorists and send them to Yemen a breeding ground of terrorism?
Here's how I see it.
He is either:
1. Incredibly naive. Seeing the world as he wants it to be. Not like it is. Instead of turning Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab over to the military as (in POW) he probably took Delirious's advice to try him in a civilian court right after the guy who robbed the liquor store.
2. Stupid. When you drop the phrase War on Terror from your administration's vocabulary that doesn't mean the enemy suddenly likes you.
3. Puts world opinion above safety of Americans.
If this were a movie Imbecilious and Delirious early on in the plot would be identified as the villains. So I was going to put down number 4. Working for Al Qaeda. Even I don't believe that. But it does make you wonder.
By the way, this is coming from an administration who can't control who shows up at a White House dinner party, and we are supposed to trust them with Homeland Security!
Report: Freed Guantanamo Detainees Head to Yemen to Rejoin Al Qaeda
At least a dozen former Guantanamo Bay inmates have rejoined Al Qaeda to fight in Yemen, The Times of London reported Tuesday, amid growing concern over the ability of the country's government to accept almost 100 more former inmates from the detention center.
The Obama Administration promised to close the Guantanamo facility by January 22, a deadline that it will be unable to meet. The 91 Yemeni prisoners in Guantanamo make up the largest national contingent among the 198 being held.
Six prisoners were returned to Yemen last month. After the Christmas Day bomb plot in Detroit, U.S. officials are increasingly concerned that the country is becoming a hot-bed of terrorism. Eleven of the former inmates known to have rejoined Al Qaeda in Yemen were born in Saudi Arabia. The organization merged its Saudi and Yemeni offshoots last year.
The country's mountainous terrain, poverty and lawless tribal society make it, in the opinion of many analysts, a close match for Afghanistan as a new terrorist haven.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton voiced concern about the growing strength of Al Qaeda in Yemen.
"Obviously, we see global implications from the war in Yemen and the ongoing efforts by Al Qaeda in Yemen to use it as a base for terrorist attacks far beyond the region," she said.
A Yemeni, Hani Abdo Shaalan, who was released from Guantanamo in 2007, was killed in an airstrike on December 17, the Yemeni Government reported last week. The deputy head of Al Qaeda in the country is Said Ali al-Shihri, 36, who was released from the prison in 2007. Ibrahim Suleiman al-Rubaish, who was released in 2006, is a prominent ideologue featured on Yemeni Al Qaeda Web sites.
