Just How Phenomenally Edwards Screwed Up

This Lindsay Beyerstein article about the Edwards campaign’s attempts to recruit her to blog for them just floors me. She warned the Edwards campaign, at every point, of what would happen, and they just didn’t care. They didn’t think the religious right would pin everything Lindsey, Amanda, and Melissa wrote on them – even though Lindsey warned them that the right would. They were more than willing to let campaign bloggers keep their personal blogs – even as Lindsey warned them of how bad an idea that was. The whole thing shows a level of incompetence that is, frankly, the Bush administration writ very, very small. If Edwards runs his campaign this ineffectually, I can only imagine how bad his presidency would be.
