Yesterday, we learned that the Hillary campaign is still trolling for dirt on Barack Obama. Evidently digging through his permanent school record going all the way back to kindergarten just wasn’t enough. We also learned that you don’t need to be altogether literate to work at the top levels of the Clinton machine.

Today, we learn that Obama is actually dropping some dirt on Edwards.
Circulating among Iowa labor circles, I am told, is this leaflet, which looks to be a standard opposition-research paper against former Sen. John Edwards, D-NC.
The shocker? It’s from Mr. Positive, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois.
Not that it’s a shocker that Obama is drawing differences between he and his opponents. (UPDATE: The Obama campaign says this document came because a local union requested information on the differences between him and his opponents.)
It’s a shocker because Obama chief strategist David Axelrod told ABC News that “One of the things people appreciate about (Obama) is he’s not a cheap-shot artist” and this flier is full of cheap shots.
The cheapest shot … that Edwards somehow has something to do with Whirlpool when the company was closing down Maytag plants in Iowa, Illinois, and Arkansas.
Tapper goes on to describe why the Whirlpool accusation is a cheap shot, and it is, and that Obama actually has a more direct connection to the Whirlpool shutdown, which is also true. It’s also true that neither had much to do with the decision at all.
This part of the leaflet isn’t a cheap shot, though, and doesn’t go back to Edwards’ grade school essays. If it’s accurate, it’s more evidence that Silky is a ginormous hypocrite.
There are two Americas, you see, and one of them is a big tax shelter in the Caymans.
