Unfortunately for John Edwards, one of his aides that very day was trying to secure a PlayStation3 for the Edwards family. At Wal-Mart. Even more unfortunately for John Edwards, as this AP Story points out, PR director Leslie Dach isn't one to let an opportunity pass by.
The resulting Wal-Mart press release is comedy gold: "While the rest of America's working families are waiting patiently in line, Senator Edwards wants to cut to the front. While, we cannot guarantee that Sen. Edwards will be among one of the first to obtain a PlayStation3, we are certain Sen. Edwards will be able to find great gifts for everyone on his Christmas list - many at Wal-Mart's 'roll-back prices.'"
Edwards blamed the incident on his family
