If this wasn't so sad it would be funny. Anyway, y'all remember last week when I said that all politican's wives should get hazard pay and get a cardboard cutout of themselves made for the day that their husbands have to admit to the now cliche' extra marital affair...
If you ware married to a politician I want you to stop what you are doing right now, get off this blog and head on down to Kinkos and have them make a cardboard cut out of you looking stoic yet supportive and slightly dosed up on some as yet undetermined "nerve" pills. No really, I want you to do that because I want to spare you the trouble of having to actually stand by your man. When the newspaper reports that your husband has cheated on you with A) his top aide, b) a prostitute or c) another man, I think you have the right to a much deserved vacation. You should head towards the airport and tell the hubby to just take out the cardboard cut out and he can stand next to it. When he issued the standard non confession confession. Maybe outfit your cardboard cut out to shed a tear for added drama. What About Our DaughtersWell Mrs. David Paterson didn't read that post apparently:
*YAWN*I guess it isn't supposed to be as bad because she apparently strayed as well. I have to give him credit for acting preemptively and it looks like this temporarily knocked Barack Obama's Jeremiah Wright issues off of the top of the headlines.... until he give that speech later today that puts the focus of the campaign back on "race"... as if it ever left.
The thunderous applause was still ringing in his ears when the state's new governor, David Paterson, told the Daily News that he and his wife had extramarital affairs.
In a stunning revelation, both Paterson, 53, and his wife, Michelle, 46, acknowledged in a joint interview they each had intimate relationships with others during a rocky period in their marriage several years ago.
In the course of several interviews in the past few days, Paterson said he maintained a relationship for two or three years with "a woman other than my wife," beginning in 1999.Huffington Post
See Kwame Kilpatrick, if you had just come out and admitted the affair, you wouldn't be going through all this drama right now- having to resort to pimping your wife and kids, acting a plum natural fool and dropping the N-word in public as if you are the hype man for a hip hop act instead of the Mayor of a shrinking city.
No, seriously, I want all of the politicians who read this blog to send in an email if you have managed to be faithful to your wife for the duration of your political career.
