Silky P Quits Race, AP Sends Love Note

The smarmy snake-oil salesman finally got the message, and the Associated Press sends him off with a gushing love note.

Man, talk about a journalistic tongue-bath.
DENVER - Democrat John Edwards is exiting the presidential race Wednesday, ending a scrappy underdog bid in which he steered his rivals toward progressive ideals while grappling with family hardship that roused voters' sympathies, The Associated Press has learned.
Nedra, baby, get off your knees.
Edwards burst out of the starting gate with a flurry of progressive policy ideas — he was the first to offer a plan for universal health care, the first to call on Congress to pull funding for the war, and he led the charge that lobbyists have too much power in Washington and need to be reigned in.

The ideas were all bold and new for Edwards personally as well, making him a different candidate than the moderate Southerner who ran in 2004 while still in his first Senate term. But the themes were eventually adopted by other Democratic presidential candidates — and even a Republican, Mitt Romney, echoed the call for an end to special interest politics in Washington.
Contrast this slobbering with the account of Rudy Giuliani departing the GOP race.

What media bias?

More on Edwards at Hot Air, Michelle Malkin, and Gateway Pundit, who has a fond farewell video to Silky.
