Even amateurs are more professional

Some would say that the controversy over this student broadcast story on John Edwards' campaign headquarters in Chapel Hill, N.C., is evidence that his campaign is run by amateurs.

Sorry, not even amateurs are this stupid.

It's a safe bet that no one from the UNC-Chapel Hill journalism school was covering the event in person: a professor from the program said that the Edwards' campaign attempted to scuttle a student's video report about the Edwards campaign headquarters. According to the News & Observer, professor C.A. Tuggle ("Dr. T to his students" per his web site) said the campaign threatened to cut off access for UNC student reporters and other student groups if the piece aired on the student-run television program "Carolina Week." The campaign also asked for the video to be removed from YouTube, Tuggle said.

The campaign told the News & Observer that the incident was "silly," but did not comment specifically on the student's report. "We love all reporters, the problem is the feeling isn't always mutual," Edwards spokeswoman Colleen Murray said.

Someone call a waahmbulance. For crying out loud, try running as a Republican and then tell me about the love you don't feel you're getting at the Edwards campaign from reporters.

Can't you just feel the totalitarian impulse right beneath that Democrat veneer?
