I was amazed to discover that John Edwards campaign came under fire from an ultra-conservative, Bill Donohoe, from the Catholic League. The crux of the attacks were that Edwards hired two mouthy anti-Catholic bloggers, our beloved Melissa McEwan (who went to Loyola!) from Shakespeare's Sister and Amanda Marcotte, from Pandagon. Good Lord! The attacks are already coming and over something as minor as hiring two great bloggers to help his campaign. Luckily, Edwards stood by both Amanda and Melissa (yay!) (see Pam from Pandagon on this). If you want more background on this debacle, read here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.
