Following Shrum, Tantaros, and Weld

A few advances in stories you first saw here or in the Observer:

The Washington Post’s politics blog notes our Shrum book scoop and adds rumor — and Shrum denial — that the semi-retired consultant is whispering in Arnold’s ear.

The Associated Press tracks the Democrats’ response to Pirro spokeswoman Andrea Tantaros’s undergrad musings, but omits her (rocking) Wawa-smokes defense.

And the Times reports on Bill Weld’s Kentucky trouble. You may recall that Jess had the story and relevant documents here yesterday, but using a complex algorithim involving the number of hours by which you get beat and the distance your reporter travels, the usually-gracious Times declines to credit. (We, of course, blame Arthur Sulzberger for this.)
