There are many things John Edwards was unaware of
Those following national headlines are well aware that former Democratic Presidential candidate and all-around swell guy John Edwards is on trial in North Carolina, accused of violating campaign finance laws by allegedly failing to report roughly $1 million in payments to his former aide Andrew Young in an effort to cover up the affair the Presidential hopeful had with videographer Rielle Hunter.

Today, as part of the ongoing courtroom drama, Edwards' lawyers contended that the payments were a complete and total shock to the candidate back in 2008.

From a story posted today by the Washington Post:

John Moylan, an Edwards confidante and South Carolina political consultant, testified that his friend seemed "surprised" when the heiress Rachel "Bunny" Mellon told him in August 2008 that she had been sending money to Edwards's aide, Andrew Young, through a North Carolina interior decorator. "Bunny, you should not be sending money to anyone," Moylan testified that Edwards told Mellon during a meeting at her estate in Upperville, Va.

Finally, something that makes sense in this whole sordid ordeal. Edwards has proven time and time again to be such a stand-up dude that the idea that the payments were completely unknown to him is, really, the only rational explanation.

Right?

Anyway, here are a few other things John Edwards was completely unaware of:

Cheating on your Cancer-Ridden Wife Looks Terrible

Sure, hindsight is 20/20, but how as a dashing former trial lawyer turned Congressman turned Presidential hopefully really supposed to know that fooling around with a blonde videographer while Elizabeth Edwards battled breast cancer was such a bad PR move?

There is No Such Thing as Santa Claus

Amazingly, to this day Edwards believes in Santa Claus... not to mention the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny and John Kerry's realistic Presidential aspirations circa 2004. He's like a little kid in a man's body.

Fighting Poverty Doesn't Mask the Fact You're an Awful Person

While it may seem surprising, as it turns out the American public is a fickle bunch. Even though Edwards, throughout his career, has involved himself in the fight against poverty - most recently as director of the Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill - all people seem to want to talk about these days is that damn affair and the six felony charges against him. So unfair!

Dave Matthews Doesn't Do Rooftop Marriage Ceremonies for Schmucks

Look, it's not easy to book Dave Matthews. You pretty much have to be the President, or at the very least the Gorge on Labor Day Weekend. Still, that didn't stop Edwards from allegedly promising Hunter that they'd tie the knot during a rooftop marriage ceremony in New York serenaded by the Dave Matthews Band once his pesky wife died. Again, Edwards obviously had no idea how difficult it is to book Dave Matthews.
