Enjoy these last few moments of not having very specific knowledge of John Edwards's sex life, because the Daily Beast has tracked down a number of people who have seen his and Rielle Hunter's soon-to-available-everywhere (I'm certain) sex tape, and all of your precious ignorance is about to be drained right… about… now…
One source who has a medical background and has worked with pregnant patients says Hunter appears four or five months pregnant based on the swollen state of her belly and nipples. This would place the tape's filming somewhere around September or October of 2007, smack in the middle of Edwards campaign for the presidency.
On the video, both participants are naked. Hunter is propped up against the hotel bed headboard, with John Edwards belly-down on the bed between her legs. As Hunter, the campaign's official videographer, holds the camera, a smiling Edwards performs oral sex. Because of the camera angle, Hunter's face is not visible, but her distinctive jewelry is. Not only does candidate Edwards know he's being filmed, one source says, he's also clowning around and "graphically performing for the camera."
Clowning around and "graphically performing for the camera"? And all just a few months before the primary season began? I'm sure that there's some way we can spin this. How about…
He was just rehearsing his silver-tongue to show the American people how excited he was to serve them.
