Waiting To Hear From Edwards  —  I have a pretty vicious rant and an important action alert lined up, but I am waiting to hear from the Edwards camp about the fate of Amanda Marcotte and Melissa McEwan before doing anything.  The Salon story is not credible and cannot be verified at this time.
Does John Edwards Condone Hate Speech?  —  A bit of a tempest is brewing over the strident and profanity-laced writings of John Edwards' official campaign "blogmaster," Amanda Marcotte.  She joined the Edwards campaign last week, and she's already gotten a lot of attention.
John Amato / Crooks and Liars:
CNN on the Edwards/Blogger Story  —  I wasn't happy with this report.  Why did CNN choose to interview Danny Glover for the piece anyway?  Why did CNN give Donohue a nice platform with nobody from the left to add balance to the segment?  They must know how controversial he is.

Libby Live: Tim Russert, One  —  Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be live-bloggers.  Trying to keep up with the tapes of rapid-fire Fitz and soft-spoken Scooter was no fun.  But now we're back in the world of live witnesses, who hopefully will pause for breath more often ...
