Well, this will get people to forget about his $400 Beverly Hills haircuts… Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards told Michigan Democrats Saturday night that the United States must quickly get out of Iraq, which he called a “bleeding sore.” “America needs to be leaving Iraq, this is very, very simple,” said Edwards, a 53-year-old former […]

Ruh roh. Waiting for the nutroots to issue their “action alerts” to bully the CBC into pulling out… Update: Here you go… NYTimes notes: “This isn’t the first time the C.B.C. has paired with Fox.

Obama’s got it locked up. Phew. The suspense was killing me. Obama’s also got the coveted Rep. Keith Ellison endorsement. And here’s vid of him smoothing out the ruffled feathers with Hillary. At an Obama-less forum, the rest of the Dems talk amongst themselves. Bitterness, backbiting, backstabbing, and backtracking ensue. More from the NYTimes: wo […]
The other John Edwards nutroots shoe drops. As usual, guess who’s getting blamed. More blame-the-messenger hysterics and hyperbole at–where else?–HuffPo. Bryan Preston responds to McEwan’s claims of hate mail and death threats: Blogs in general have a collective new dent thanks to the promotion of two of its worst to positions where they would attract […]
All is not well in Ponyville. *** A blogger at John Edwards site wonders: I think we know the answer. Dean Barnett underlines it: As for Edwards, he looks irredeemably pathetic. There’s a simple reason for this – he is irredeemably pathetic. He hired someone who had no business being legitimated by a mainstream political […]
“Blogmaster” Amanda Marcotte has resigned from the Edwards’ campaign (the site is currently down). Of course, it’s all the right wing’s and Catholic activists’ fault (a blame-avoidance strategy I highlighted on The O’Reilly Factor tonight before news of Marcotte’s resignation broke).

Now, he’s getting flak from left-wing critics for questioning the wisdom of John Edwards’ blogging staff. Those critics have also been attacking his blogging brother, Rick (hat tip: Greg Tinti). What’s so admirable and deeply moving to me […]
From John Edwards’ blog: The tone and the sentiment of some of Amanda Marcotte’s and Melissa McEwan’s posts personally offended me. It’s not how I talk to people, and it’s not how I expect the people who work for me to talk to people. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but that kind of intolerant […]

Pablo at Protein Wisdom reports. Meanwhile, Kathryn Lopez looks at the anti-Catholic hatred of John Edwards’ blogmaster. At least one feminst law professor is happy. The nutroots are not so happy about our Masterpiece Theater spoof of Marcotte. Check out their comments at YouTube. They really are a humorless bunch, aren’t they?
Enjoy our Hot Air Theater presentation of the wit and wisdom of Amanda Marcotte, the official blogmaster of the John Edwards for President campaign: Walter Olson follows up: Part of what lends the Marcotte episode such a comic aspect, however, is the timing and nature of her post and later revision. Her vitriolic rant asserting […]
Guess good fences don’t always make good neighbors. And about that brand spanking new Edwards’ manor, MKH has a few things to say: Listen, I got no problem with the guy being rich and spending his money how he wishes, but it is supremely obnoxious that just about every liberal politican lives like the top […]
