Edwards Defends Massive Compound

This is humor:

NEVADA, Iowa – Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards on Tuesday defended the construction of a sprawling, 28,000-square-foot house in North Carolina, arguing that his home is a model of energy efficiency.

“The house was built from the beginning, both in its location for passive solar and the use of active solar, to help provide some of the energy for the house,” Edwards said in an interview. “It doesn’t provide all of the energy, but it provides some.”

Sitting on 102 secluded acres, the 28,000-square-foot estate that Edwards and his family call home has a main house with five bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths. It’s connected by a covered walkway to a bright red addition known as “The Barn,” which includes its own living facilities along with a handball court, an indoor pool and an indoor basketball court with a stage at one end.
