John Edwards apparently let the mask slip a bit while addressing a Hollywood crowd last night and saying that in his opinion, Israel is the biggest threat to world peace.
"Perhaps the greatest short-term threat to world peace is the possibility that Israel would bomb Iran's nuclear facilities," Edwards said.
Needless to say, things got a bit strained and the Edwards fundraiser was brought to a quick close.
It's not really surprising..after all, Edwards was merely falling in with the standard Angry left position.
Of course, this being a political season, Edwards' campaign was quick to try and spin it. According to Edwards' spokesman Jonathan Prince, what Edwards meant to say is that one of the greatest short-term threats to world peace is Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon, and that Peter Bart, who originally broke this story in Variety must have misheard him...along with most of the rest of the people at the fundraiser.
Hey, I believe him. I mean, who ever heard of a trial lawyer lying?
