John Edwards’ mug shot photos, taken earlier this month, were released this morning. To me that smile says, “I didn’t do anything that bad, not really, and I’m going to charm and finagle my way out of these charges…yeah!” Or it says, “I’m not going to frown and look contrite…eff that…that’s for people who are guilty, unlike myself!”

If I was a six-foot-eight gay black guy doing a life term in a prison that Edwards might conceivably be sentenced to, I’d be wetting my lips right now. If Edwards does any kind of prison time anywhere, his ass will be owned in record time. Imagine the prestige in having a good-looking ex-Presidential candidate as your personal bunk bitch.
