Quote of the Day

"In fact, while it's possible that before Hunter started speaking on her own behalf, I might have entertained the notion that she was a slightly dopey lady who fell hard for a bad man who was running for president and got caught in a very unfortunate saga, I now feel quite confident that in fact she is a borderline simpleton, fame-seeking narcissist whose self-interested grab for attention is likely doing further permanent damage to the Edwards family, including her daughter and her siblings. If her appearance on the Oprah show seemed like an unjust setup, then Hunter proved that, every once in a while, someone so amply meets all expectations for awfulness that it's impossible to muster anything other than loathing for them."

-- Rebecca Traister, in her piece on Oprah's interview with homewrecker and new-age loon Rielle Hunter (remember, Alison Poole) in today's Salon

You know, kids, I never thought I'd say this, but it was actually a little entertaining to watch Oprah bare her teeth and gorge on Hunter like she was a half-gallon of Häagen-Dazs Dulce de Leche.
