Yesterday, a staff person for former Sen. Edwards contacted a Wal-Mart
electronics manager in Raleigh, North Carolina to obtain a Sony PlayStation3 on behalf of the Senator's family. Later that night, Sen. Edwards reportedly re-told a homespun story to participants of a United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union-sponsored call about how his son had chided a fellow student for purchasing shoes at Wal-Mart.
Wal-Mart welcomes Sen. Edwards to visit his local Wal-Mart store and
explore the extensive line of home electronics as well as the Metro7 line
shoes for men and boys.
The Company noted the PlayStation3 is an extremely popular item this
Christmas season, and while the rest of America's working families are
waiting patiently in line, Senator Edwards wants to cut to the front. While,
we cannot guarantee that Sen. Edwards will be among one of the first to
obtain a PlayStation3, we are certain Sen. Edwards will be able to find
great gifts for everyone on his Christmas list - many at Wal-Mart's
Senators Barak Obama & John Edwards discussing game consoles back in 2004
Premier BettyThat PS3 should be confiscated from him, and given to me!!! That, and a copy of Killzone 2. And a large order of fishsticks.
No fries with that??
Thanks, drive through!
From Business Week:
Quote:In a much-publicized and carefully executed event on Nov. 15, Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and former Senator John Edwards (D.-N.C.) lent their voices and their political clout to the effort to pressure Wal-Mart Stores (WMT), the world's largest retailer, to change its workplace practices.
Says John Edwards: “Wal-Mart as an example of the problems that exist in America today is a powerful political issue."
I wonder if he said it BEFORE Wal-Mart denied him the PS3 or AFTER? In either event he comes out rather silly. This man was actually THIS close from becoming our vice pres. The Democrats couldn't think of anyone better than him in 2004, and last week they won the election by claiming they were more ethical and less corrupt than the GOP.
It's kind of hard to satirize one who is a perpetual self-parody.
Quote:Dave Winer wrote "Mr. Edwards encourage people who aren't bogging to blog. Its good for your campaign.". The BlogTogether group in the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill area of North Carolina are doing this now. Hey John Edwards, help teach others to blog too!
I responded with this comment:
Quote:Since you wrote "Mr. Edwards encourage people who aren't bogging to blog," Wouldn't it be more proper to continue as "The BOG Together group ... of North Carolina are doing this now. Hey John Edwards, help teach others to BOG too!"
Just recently he bogged down with a back-door request from Wal-Mart about PlayStation3 for his family, while he was protesting Wal-Mart with you guys. He'll teach you to bog allright!
Power to the Peoples Bog!
Sometimes you have to respond to these horrible insults in kind.
Breck Girl and Bourak have their marching orders.
This shake-down has barely just begun.
Hey Wal-Mart, I served on your board for six years!
Do you want all this to go away? Do I need Ka-Ching to " 'splain it to you , Lucy"?
$5K doesn't even buy ME lunch.
Heads are gonna roll if you keep "Rollin' Back" my campaign contributions!
How can anyone doubt the intentions of such a pillar of the socialist revolution as Comrade Edwards?
This NOT hypocrisy! It is good old Party approved PRAGMATISM!

Wow, how many human sacrifices do you require?
EQUAL-RIGHTS PROTECTION FOR ALL APPLIANCES!
-- I never made the above comment--
Be strong! Make do with your PS2, and, of course, a case of "Propaganda," or two.
Cheers, my friends.
