An overnight post from ABC’s Political Radar: “ABC News’ Raelyn Johnson reports…All day the blogosphere has been buzzing with the question, ‘Did Elizabeth Edwards really say that?’ Finally tonight there is an answer as the Edwards campaign confirms the remarks to ABC News.”

Ed Cone reports to ABC News’ Raelyn Johnson: Bullshit.

There was a lot of buzz, but little if any of it was about the veracity of the quote. In any case, you could have done what other media outlets, and the Edwards campaign, did: contact me for details of the interview.

Don’t mess with Ed.
