John Edwards, Man of the People

How typical of Democrats:

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, who recently proposed an educational policy that urged "every financial barrier" be removed for American kids who want to go to college, has been going to college himself -- as a high paid speaker, his financial records show.

The candidate charged a whopping $55,000 to speak at to a crowd of 1,787 the taxpayer-funded University of California at Davis on Jan. 9, 2006 last year, Joe Martin, the public relations officer for the campus' Mondavi Center confirmed Monday.

That amount -- which comes to about $31 a person in the audience -- included Edwards' travel and airfare, and was the highest speaking fee in the nine appearances he made before colleges and universities last year, according to his financial records.

No amount of these stories ever seem to prompt the media to puncture the Democrats' "Man of the People" schtick.

They have always been money-grubbing, demagoguing, power-hungry little weasels and always will be, no matter how much the LWM fawns over their little princes.
