Via an email to reporters, Edwards just announced the group “Plants for Hillary,” parodying groups like Veterans for Hillary and African-American Women for Hillary and taking the frontrunner to task for the planted question scandal that isn’t really a scandal.

There’s even a website, plantsforhillary.com, which the campaign calls the “one-stop shop for all Americans interested in growing the Hillary plant movement.” It’s pretty crude, kind of mean, and a just a little bit funny.

The campaign calls it a “grassroots” website. I think it puts a new spin on slinging mud.
