MARCH DIMWITTERY UPDATE….Last month I wrote a post that collected all the dimwit stories about Democratic politicians that had somehow made the jump to mainstream media stardom in the previous few weeks. I figure I should keep it up to date. Here’s the list again, with new entries in italics:

  • Nancy Pelosi: the military jet flap

  • John Edwards: the Georgetown house flap, the foul-mouthed blogger flap

  • Barack Obama: the madrassa flap, the stock purchase flap

  • Hillary Clinton: the “evil and bad men” flap, the family foundation flap, the “Southern drawl” flap

The Obama parking ticket story has gotten a fair amount of play, but since everyone (so far) seems to be treating it as lighthearted puffery it doesn’t count. Anything I’ve left off the list?
