"Breck Girl" says that Wal-Mart is evil...except for buying his PS/3

Right now, devout gamers across America are camping outside of Best Buys, Circuit Citys, and Wal-Marts to be one of the very first to scoop up the soon-to-be-released Sony Playstation 3. It's touted to be the mother of all gaming systems, or at least until Nintendo or Sega can come out with something better next year.

Anywho, PS/3-mania can reach across all walks of life, including ambulance chasers who wanted to litigate their way to the presidency & vice-presidency. Yes, John Edwards (aka the "Breck Girl") is sending his help to score him a new PS/3 from Sam Walton's evil blue empire...Wal-Mart! From Mary Katharine Ham:
BENTONVILLE, Ark. – Nov. 16, 2006 – Just like the millions of Americans who turn to their neighborhood Wal-Mart for their holiday shopping needs, Wal-Mart announced today that former Sen. John Edwards is seeking to be one of the first to get a Sony PlayStation3, one of the most coveted holiday gift items this Christmas season.

Yesterday, a staff person for former Sen. Edwards contacted a Wal-Mart electronics manager in Raleigh, North Carolina to obtain a Sony PlayStation3 on behalf of the Senator's family. Later that night, Sen. Edwards reportedly re-told a homespun story to participants of a United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union-sponsored call about how his son had chided a fellow student for purchasing shoes at Wal-Mart.
Don't buy shoes, Little Johnny...get the PS/3 instead! You have any ideas what those things can command on eBay? By the way, Ham has pictures of Breck Girl at the anti-America's Store union rallies.

Apparently, an intense gaming desire can overcome purported deeply held beliefs that one of America's largest private employers (and shopping destination to roughly 68% of Americans, including those red-state "ham and eggers" that Edwards conned once (but not twice) into voting for him) is a corporofascist entity! Principle-schminciple...the man needs to get his game on!
