Elizabeth Edwards says she is scared of the "rabid, rabid Republican" who owns property across the street from her Orange County home -- and she doesn't want her kids going near the gun-toting neighbor.
Edwards, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, particularly recalls the time neighbor Monty Johnson brought out a gun while chasing workers investigating a right of way near his property. The Edwards family has yet to meet Johnson in person."I wouldn't be nice to him, anyway," Edwards said in an interview.
Now bear in mind the guy's a "rabid Republican" because he supports the well-known RINO Rudy Giuliani for president. Oh yeah, and he's an evil gun owner, who actually had the temerity to carry his legally owned weapon when he was confronted by a group who appeared to trespassing. Spare me, Mrs. Edwards. If I'm investigating some suspicious types here at The Freehold, I'll be carrying one of my legally owned weapons as well. I may have been born at night, but it wasn't last night. It takes the sheriff more than a few minutes to get to my neighborhood if things go bad.
Apparently, this will have a happy ending, at least for the Edwards. Johnson, whose family has owned the property since the Great Depression, has put the place up for sale, in part due to high Orange County taxes and in part bacause "I don't want to live somewhere where someone's always complaining about me."
If it was me, it'd be more like a case of "There goes the neighborhood."
