2. Rep. Sue Myrick goes public with a feud with fellow Republican (super) conservative Robert Pittenger, who represents Charlotte in the state senate. 'Pears Pittenger was trying to push Myrick into the race for guv so he could run for her seat in the U.S. Congress. Not so fast there, Bob, sez Myrick. Pittenger blames it all on Myrick's chief of staff, Hal Weatherman, "an angry young man." Now everybody's angry!
3. Tough guy John Edwards makes threats anent Iran RE nuclear bomb ... to an Israeli audience.
