Edwards Off Short List for VP: Enquirer?

John Edwards got his hand stuck in somebody’s cookie jar and the result may mean no VP slot for Obama. The L.A. Times, of all places, picked up the story that no one would touch because it originated at, yikes!, the National Enquirer. But then in true tabloid fashion, the paper couldn’t produce any quotes, photos or eyewitness accounts.

Still, ripe material for bloggers like us.

As for the L.A. Times, which refused to do the story, but did the story about the Enquirer doing the story, the paper only wrote that “Barack Obama’s VP shortlist may have gotten a little shorter.”

Them’s good eats for a hungry beast like the L.A. Times.
