Jeff Spicoli, Presidential Adviser: John Edwards Consulted Sean Penn About Affair, Illegit Baby

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s a good thing that this moronic liberal trial lawyer, John Edwards, was never Vice President.  And now we have yet another reason, beside far-left wacko views, stupid affairs, and illegit kids:  the guy consulted Hollywood movie stars–most notably Jeff Spicoli a/k/a Sean “I Love Iran & Chavez” Penn–as his advisers.  Yup, not experts.  Just people who play them–er, who play pot-smoking morons–in the movies. The only thing that would make this story more ridiculous: if he’d consulted Mel Gibson (or the ghost of Bin Laden). If only . . . .


“Tasty Waves & a Cool Buzz”: Jeff Spicoli Advised Presidential Candidate

Before John Edwards admitted to fathering a child with mistress Rielle Hunter, he reached out to Hollywood friends including Sean Penn, Madeleine Stowe and Crash director Paul Haggis, a witness testified Wednesday.

Campaign speechwriter Wendy Button retook the witness stand after testifying the previous day about help she provided Edwards in drafting a statement during the summer of 2009. He intended to “come clean” about his lies regarding the affair and admit paternity of his child with Hunter, she said.

Edwards went through 13 drafts of the statement, getting feedback from his lawyers and a wide-ranging group of friends that included the actor Sean Penn, Button said. Edwards didn’t release a statement admitting paternity until January 2010.

Hmmm . . . I wonder what Spicoli’s advice was? Perhaps, he told Edwards to run it by his buddies Mahmoud (Ahamdinejad) and Hugo (Chavez).

Dude, where is Mr. Hand when you need him?

Funny that he didn’t contact a LAWYER for help. “A lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client.”

Nice job of vetting, MSM. Burn in hell, Elizabeth Edwards, for aiding and abetting this scumbag’s attempt to become POTUS.

    While I don’t appreciate your comment damning Elizabeth Edwards, I do agree that it is worth noting that he was pretty happy to be a rich, scumbag, ambulance (and skirt) chasing lawyer in North Carolina. It was Elizabeth who had the national political ambitions. (Kind of like Bill and Hillary Clinton, but I digress…) It was Elizabeth who pushed him to run for the Senate in North Carolina, and when the good people of North Carolina were sick of having a senator who didn’t even show up for the Senate and were ready to kick him to the curb in the next election, went for broke and pushed him for President. I thought at the time that it took some pretty all-encompassing ego and ambition on BOTH of their parts for her to push him to run for President when she KNEW she would be battling breast cancer, and, I believe, even after she KNEW it was Stage IV and her chances were not good. It took some absolutely low-life, scum-sucking ego-driven moxie for him to cheat on her with a skank in the midst of all of that. If we’re going to damn anyone, it should be the guy who is still alive. I’d like to see him rot in jail for a while.

    She was dying of cancer and knew that her husband was sleeping around, but Elizabeth Edwards could not get that notion of being First Lady out of her head. Her young children did not even enter into her calculations. Mrs. Edwards only turned on her husband when he was already used up and worthless. Even though half dead, Lizzy did not forget to cash in with a ghost written book that she pushed hard. Elizabeth Edwards was really not that much different from her husband. Neither of them would have thought of putting their own children ahead of their personal ambitions or personal pleasures.

LOL I’d love to have heard that conversation! “Hey Sean, uhhhh, apparently I’m an unredeemable tool who uses his friends. Since you seem to be an expert on the subject, what’s your advice?” Occam’s Tool brings up an interesting twist. If Elizabeth Edwards didn’t have cancer, would we still be crowning her as the patron saint of victimhood?

Instead of Sean Penn, he could have had his ex-wife Madonna as his advisor. Would have been an improvement – at least as far as Israel goes.

I looked up your comments on Elizabeth Edwards from several years ago, Debbie, and you were right on target.

Reminds me of when one of my cousins was going through medical school. (I was his role model, and I let him have it, but good, over what I’m about to tell you.) A couple who were friends of his were going to sue their OB/Gyn because their child was born without a forearm—limb agenesis. He was sympathetic.

My comment was, “Asshole (always start as you mean to go on, I always say). Deformed babies are born about 2.2% of the time. If this was brain damage caused by inappropriate use of forceps, or not going to C-section rapidly enough, I could see this.

But how was the doc going to stop a limb agenesis? And are you saying that for that alone, the baby should have been aborted? Hasn’t Medical School taught you any respect for the miracle of life yet, doofus?”

I have not talked to my cousin who is now a practicing rheumatologist in Wisconsin what he thinks about this many years later. I have a feeling, since he has no doubt been threatened many times now that he is in private practice, that his views have changed.

John Edwards is a scumbag, and Elizabeth Edwards was low life vermin. There are 4 lawyers that I definitely respect in this world (You, my friend who teaches history and got his JD from Harvard, Colonel Tom Kratman, and my uncle—2 of them no longer practice law, and I think my uncle is retired, too—that leaves you as the only active attorney I respect, Debbie. Maybe Justices Scalia, Alito, Thomas, and Roberts I suppose, too. But a very small number, based on my experiences with them.); there are many unpleasant MDs as well, I know, but the best MDs outshine the best other professionals because of the nature of what we do—like your dad, for example, Debbie.

You were raised well with a magnificent father, and bring a high sense of purpose to what you do. Few are like you, De3b. G-d Bless and keep you.

It’s surprising that Edwards didn’t consult nuclear arms expert Amy Carter. She’s been the counsel of a past president.

OT I gotcha back on Elizabeth Edwards. She is as complicit as he is and even though she did not deserve the amount of utter disrespect her “husband” ended up dumping on her she was no Lady Mensch and I never liked her either, cancer or no cancer.

She won lots of tea and sympathy when she did her little call-in when Ann Coulter was on a talk-show but I was one of the few to think she was a piece of rotten dogsh** and I wasn’t shy about sayin’ so.

I marveled at how many people fell for both she and her husband’s little sweet “I love the poor” act. It made me absolutely SICK. I could smell the rot and false personae off of her and her douchey husband galaxies away. Before Barack Obama-Putin that couple were the two biggest phonies (even bigger than Billy Jeff and Cankles Clinton!) on the planet.

This case has been the sleaziest thing and I follow it in the Brit papers and Diane Dimond’s great dispatches. I waited and waited for the press to expose those frauds and it is nice to see the trial in full bloom (like a stink flower!). I am praying for a loooooooong harsh sentence for that douche-bag supreme John “Break Boy” Edwards. As they say in Australia, “it couldn’t happen to a better a-hole”.

They don’t come sleazier than that sleaze-grinder. I have enjoyed his downfall. Piece of crap!

[Well said for recipient John Edwards, deservidly excluded from his wife’s will.]

Where’s the college degree, Mr. Penn?

This wasn’t original with Edwards. Remember when the Clintons and they were always consulting with producer Harry Thomason and his wife, producer Linda Bloodworth-Thomason? They were always traveling to Washington, and helping the Clintons portray themselves more favorably in the media?

It wasn’t the start of form over substance, but a big step in that direction. But as far as I know, the Thomasons weren’t Communists like Sean and Leo Penn.

Imagine if Kerry and this slime bag had been elected in 2004. We would have had as President a a liar about his war experiences and a giggolo (Kerry has twice married women with money) and a VP who was both a shameless ambulance chaser and adulterer. Mrs. Edwards was an enabler with parallels to Hillary Clinton – a wife who gets sympathy because her politician husband is a cad. If Edwards hadn’t died, maybe she’d be running for office. Hillary, one of the most corrupt human beings ever, was an enabler of Billy Boy and should have left him, but because she was either a weak woman or counting on him helping her get into high office, she stuck with him. Imagine if she had been a Republican. I think most women who baked cookies and served tea would have left Billy Boy early on.

So, behind every great sleazebag is a greater sleazebag?
Do women really need feminisim when they have a puppet to control?
Man with charisma plus woman with ambition equals a deadly combination, it seems.

Note to “actors”: if you don’t have a script to read from just go have yourself a big heaping mug of STFU!

Seems that “Ketchup Kash” Kerry should have picked Spiccoli as his veep.

This is absolutely so outrageous and pathetic!!….but not expected….it’s really par for the course when it comes to the left-wing demoncat socialists.
