John Edwards and his campaign have cracked me up for months with their light-speed sprint to the left and Edwards’ straddling of the Two Americas. But for once they’ve made me laugh on purpose! Catch this tasty little ditty from Edwards’ spokeswoman Teresa Wells on the subject of Stephen Colbert’s campaign stop in SC this weekend: (from CNN)

Edwards spokesperson Teresa Wells also ribbed Colbert for his ties to the snack food industry. Colbert has said his campaign will be sponsored by Doritos.

“What is more troubling than his quest for a status his own mother won’t grant him (favorite son) are his ties to the salty food industry,” Wells said. “As the candidate of Doritos, his hands are stained by corporate corruption and nacho cheese. John Edwards has never taken a dime from taco chip lobbyists and America deserves a President who isn’t in the pocket of the snack food special interests.”

Kudos to Camp Edwards for having a sense of humor despite their stumbling campaign.

(Open invitation to Teresa: Any chance you’d blog for Political Derby when Edwards withdraws after losing Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina? I humbly await your reply…)
