Political Fallout: Edwards Wins 'Fallout's First "Duh" Award
Excerpted from this post at Political Fallout
In the perpetual "War on Bloggers" it looks like the Edwards' Campaign had its first political casualties: Amanda Marcotte (formerly of Pandagon) and Melissa McEwan (Shakespeare's Sister). A virtual vigil for the fallen bloggers has been scheduled for 5 'o'clock, blogsphere time. In honor of their brave blogspheric sacrifices, Political Fallout has established the "Duh" Award, which will honor people, politicians, groups, political factions, or any other entity whose actions merit a "Duh, what were you thinking?"* response from any member of the blogsphere community. Another factor that will be considered during the "Duh" Award vetting process is how the candidate responded to the controversy, especially if the nominee acts genuinely surprised.
