Comments by George Clooney on the Huffington Post about being a proud and unabashed liberal created a small blogosphere boomlet this week, but the aftermath may prove more entertaining. Clooney's people told Elizabeth Snead at the LAT's Styles and Scenes blog that the actor objected to the Huffpost making it sound like he had blogged for them. Then Clooney issued a full statement, saying "Miss Huffington's blog is purposefully misleading and I have asked her to clarify the facts." Arianna posted a reply, and now the original Clooney item is being purged from the site. Blow-by-blow at Styles and Scenes and Defamer.
