Viral Messaging?

Politico says people on the right are gearing up to tweak John Edwards for sneezing, wiping, and then shaking hands on the campaign trail.

Who fucking cares? I'd suck the snot out of his nose.

He's such a stud. Mmmm!!

gross. can a brotha get some purell??

Trust me. I understand the attraction, but Poe, please.

Anyway, that was so innocent. He had to sneeze and someone stuck their hand out to shake. Imagine what they'd do with: I don't want to shake. My hands are contaminated.

Plus, I'm sure he's very, very tired and may not be running on all 8 cylinders. How do any of them, really, find themselves willing to put up with a presidential campaign - and one, like this one, that's two years long?

And, Poe, it's totally funny, but I don't like to think of Edwards and snot (a word that I hate) within the same concept.

I'd still do it. Instantly.

Yes, we know you would, Mr. Poe.

Politics has become exactly like third grade recess.

Dude,I could give a shit less about the politics of the faux pas. Whatever. So dude sneezed and shook some hands. Has nothing to do with anything anyone who isn't a total rube would base their vote on.

That having been said...

John! WTF? You're going to be shaking the hands of the great unwashed from here to '09. Why are you bit carrying a bottle of Purelle for your own damn protection at this point?!

I'm no verminophobe but if I was told I might shake a million hands over the next 16 months, I'd start carrying that shit and stay on a steady regimen of Airborne or something.
