John Edwards is an idiot

This is wrong on so many levels:

Edwards Acknowledges Wal-Mart Gaffe

First of all, he's anti-Walmart, a store that helps lower income people and everyone else afford many products:

Edwards told The Associated Press that the volunteer "feels terrible" about seeking the game unit at Wal-Mart a day after his boss criticized the company, saying it doesn't treat its employees fairly.

Second, he gets a volunteer to try to use his name to get the PS3 which is selling out everywhere and causing riots:

"My wife, Elizabeth, wanted to get a Playstation3 for my young children. She mentioned it in front of one of my staff people," Edwards said. "That staff person mentioned it in front of a volunteer who said he would make an effort to get one. He was making an effort to go get one for himself. ...

And worst of all, he taught his 6 year old to make fun of his poorer classmates for shopping at Walmart:

In the call, he repeated a story about his son Jack disapproving of a classmate buying sneakers at Wal-Mart. "If a 6-year-old can figure it out, America can definitely figure this out," Edwards said.

What an out-of-touch snob!
