John, just what all do you consider a “charity”?

John “Pretty Boy” Edwards is one of those gifts that just seems to keep on giving. 

Politico reports that Edwards might have been having a problem with the whole truth and nothing but the truth, when he told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, “Every dime of the money they gave to me has gone to charity.”  Maybe he should have defined “charity” for Wolf and the viewing audience?

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards recently defended taking a lucrative book contract from a publisher controlled by Rupert Murdoch — whose News Corp. empire Edwards has sharply criticized — by insisting that “every dime” of his $500,000 advance went to charity.

Left unmentioned by Edwards, however, was that Murdoch’s HarperCollins paid portions of a $300,000 expense budget for the book to Edwards’s daughter and to a senior political aide, Jonathan Prince.

The sums paid to Cate Edwards and Prince, who are listed as co-authors on the little-noticed 2006 coffee table book, “Home: The Blueprints of Our Lives,” have not been made public, but were confirmed by two sources with first-hand knowledge of the book deal.

These and other details of the deal that have spilled out in recent weeks demonstrate both the complexity of Edwards’ transformation into an anti-corporate crusader, and of Murdoch’s double role as a corporate titan and political player.    more…

Michelle Malkin weighs in on the “silly pony” and even offers up a cool PhotoShop of Edwards’ book giving it a more appropriate title.

Neocon News has a good title rewrite for Edwards, along with the cover change.
