It’s John Edwards — Everyone Point and Laugh!
by

Amanda Marcotte has resigned from the Edwards campaign, and Dave Weigel is finding much mirth:

Edwards has made the worst hiring decision of any presidential candidate since Eisenhower signed Charles Starkweather to be his Nebraska media coordinator.*
[…]
*This did not happen.

And in an otherwise unrelated post, after pulling one of the nuttier comments out of a Little Green Footballs thread:

No e-mail address, though, so it’s not clear where John Edwards should send the application.

Meanwhile, the whole humiliating mess has severely shaken Ezra Klein’s confidence in Edwards:

From top to bottom this has been a study in online incompetence from that campaign. I love Amanda and consider her a good friend, but she wasn’t the right choice to run their blog. Not only was she the wrong choice, but she was a wrong choice who wasn’t vetted. And then, when the utterly predictable [poopstorm] started, the Edwards campaign spent two days offering unresponsive waffles. And then, when they finally stood by her, they let her continue pursuing her controversial solo work?

I appreciate the campaign’s courage and conviction, both of which have been on admirable display throughout this kerfluffle. But it’s hard to ignore their incompetence. … A campaign that can hardly limp through the hiring of a blogger is not prepared for the rigors of the race.
