(Newser) – An irate Elizabeth Edwards is taking borderline-anonymous shots at her husband's former mistress in blog comments. The disgraced ex-senator's wife lambastes Rielle Hunder using the pseudonym "Cherubim"—which makes it easy for insiders to guess her identity. "It's Elizabeth," a source tells Rush & Molloy of the Daily News. "She's used 'cherubim' as a password. Look at the gravestone of their son Wade: It's an angel holding a boy."

In other creepy Edwards affair news, details of former aide Andrew Young's book proposal continue to leak. He's apparently taking "tell-all" literally, and is prepared to spill about John Edwards' other extramarital liaisons, Hunter's dependence on a psychic for life advice, and her reaction when John canceled a date after learning Elizabeth's cancer had recurred: "An unsympathetic Hunter screamed at him."
