John Edwards is on Hardball right now proving that he is the epitome of a sleazy trial lawyer. He continues to imply that Dick Cheney improperly assisted Halliburton in securing its contracts in Iraq. Yet when Chris Matthews tries to pin him down, Edwards has to admit that he has no evidence of any wrongdoing. He insists that Halliburton should have had to bid for its contracts, but when Matthews points out that there are no other companies capable of doing the type of work Halliburton is doing, Edwards says that’s all the more reason why they should have had to compete with other companies for the contract. This is idiocy. Is the man incapable of logical thought, or is he simply dishonest?
