On the incompetence of the Edwards campaign
Edwards hired two attack dogs -- Amanda Marcotte especially being one (she's banned me a couple of times when I called bullshit on her always accusing everything of being sexism, as I keep pointing out, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar and not a taunt about womankind's lack of a penis), but Melissa McEwan is no shrinking violet either. Edwards hired these attack dogs, then refused to loose them upon his enemies. This tells you something about Edwards: Either he's an idiot, or he's a coward. Either way, he's not someone to elect as President.
Remember, the first thing the enemy does when he comes to smash through your door and destroy you is go after your attack dogs first. The thing to do when someone comes after your attack dogs is to loose their chains, pat them on the butt (figuratively speaking), and say "Go get'em, Killer!" We should have seen Marcotte and McEwan on every talk show that the condensed racist evil that is Bill Donohue showed up at. But the Edwards campaign wouldn't let that happen, because they "might say something embarrassing". Instead, Edwards muzzled his attack dogs, and put them on so short a leash that they ended up resigning.
If you don't want attack dogs, don't hire them. Marcotte and McEwan's writings were right there on the Internet, it should have been clear to anyone other than a moron that Marcotte, at least, was a snarling attack dog. If you do want attack dogs, don't put a 3 foot choker chain on them. Evil bastards like Bill Donohue will just stand 3 inches outside their choker chain and wave raw meat at them until they're snarling and snapping, then reach out and snap their necks. If you're not willing to loose the choker chains and let them rip the fat evil bastard's throat out, don't hire them in the first place. Edwards basically assured himself that a) his attack dogs would end up resigning, and b) that the enemy will now destroy him, since no attack dogs are ever again going to come to his rescue. After all, why come to the rescue of someone who choked his last attack dogs? Even this penguin knows that dogs aren't that dumb!

Maybe he just is looking for a cabinet post. I know that's all I want.

Edwards couldn't survive as a viable candidate with these 2 POS in his employ.
People will remember that some of us stood for the truth in this time of struggle and defended women's rights, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the defeat of slavery. We said no to the Islamist monsters who wished to bring forth their domination of the world. The defeatists among us stood by and did nothing to stop their pre-medieval sexism, racism, slavery and terrorism. They instead gave excuses for these acts of aggression. We gave hope to the majority of Muslims, most of whom are peaceful people just wanting a prosperous life for their families, a life free of the oppressive Islamists and their apologist tools in The West. History will be the judge.

Interesting. According to Is Ought, we should defend women's rights except women's right to be uppity. Uppity women should be attacked and put in their place. We should defend freedom of speech except when it's speech we don't like. Then we should attack that speech as "hateful" and threaten to rape, kill, main, and destroy whoever said that speech we don't like. And I agree, John Edwards stood by and did nothing to stop Bill Donahue's pre-medieval sexism, racism, and terrorism (if setting loose your followers to terrorize two young women with rape threats and threats against their life isn't terrorism, well, dunno).
Edwards is finished as a viable candidate. Edwards showed that he lacks the judgement and aggressiveness to be President. He should have either not hired his two vicious attack dogs, or should have let them loose to rip out Bill Donahue's throat. Instead, he strangled them until they gave up and left.
BTW, when did two human beings become "pieces of shit"? Hmm, pre-medieval sexism, racism, and terrorism at work? Just askin!

The gender of the bloggers is immaterial. I didn't make any mention of that whatsoever, you did.
They became 2 POS when they blogged their anti-Christian bigotry. One doesn't have to be a Christian (and I'm not) to see their hateful bile for what it is.

Care to post an example of this "anti-Christian bigotry"? Just curious. The examples I've seen criticize Catholic church leaders but as a Catholic I didn't see anything criticizing me as a Catholic or saying I was a bad person or anything for being Catholic -- hell, I have the same criticisms of Catholic leadership, which is stuck in the dark ages with a medieval mindset that justifies porking little boys and discriminating against women.

I would agree with BT here. Neither of these ladies have ever done more than point out the absurdity and hypocrisy of the American version of "christianity" which includes the Roman church, despite what the Baptists, Pentecostals and Evangelicals insist.
An organization that has spent 500 years defending and enabling men in dresses who hate women and rape little boys deserves to be examined closely.

Wouldn't you agree that the use of words such as christofascist godbags qualifies as bigotry?
various quotes from Amanda Marcottes cesspool weblog were captured here before she furiously went about deleting some of her comments: http://patterico.com/2007/02/06/5792/marcotte-issue-hits-wapo-and-nyt/
Edwards had very little chance of winning the nomination. Now he has no chance, even though he (rightly) threw her and the other vile piece under the bus.

Sounds like she described Donohue accurately to me. As a Catholic, I certainly don't feel she was talking about me or the vast majority of my fellow Catholics. Seems to me that you righty tighties have some reading comprehension problems. Dude, boxers, not briefs, okay? And look, you're not 12 years old anymore, dump the Size 12 briefs and get some that are the right size for you, those tighty whities are making your voice shrill!
Sayyyy.... weren't you supposed to be leaving your Mommy's basement and, like, go sign up for your Dear Leader's little war in Iraq?

I know your worldview is extremely difficult to defend and I feel somewhat sorry for ya. No amount of creativity or style points seem to swing the trick for you. It's very frustrating to defend an oppressive ideology, isn't it?
Have you noticed that you have to ignore some rather imposing reality on a daily basis? If only the darned Islamist terrorists would stop doin' the killin' of anybody who isn't Islamist terrorists. Even for a few days. Just stop for a while so you could regain a hold on reality.
Damned pesky terrorists.

Oops, did I delete some silly spam by a silly person who still thinks terrorists are the biggest problem facing America? Why, yes I did!
Gosh, what it must be like to soil your pants every time you see a dark face. Especially with those too-small tighty whities that are cutting off the flow of blood to your brain. Frankly, I don't spend much time worrying about terrorists or terrorism, I'm worried more about being run over by these $#%@# maniac drivers. More Americans die every month from being hit by maniacs than have died in the last century from terrorism.
As for reading young Miss Amanda's screeds, yes indeedy I did read them. And actually *comprehended* them, something which, apparently, is beyond tighty whities whose too-tight briefs are cutting off the flow of blood to their brain. And nowhere did she say anything bad or evil about me. Everything she said about anything Catholic was about men in dresses who rape little boys and hate women. As a Catholic, I can give you lots of names of such men in dresses who rape little boys and hate women, and the evil bishops, archbishops, and cardinals in the Catholic heirarchy who covered up for these christopaths for years. I am enthralled by the rich intellectual tradition of the Catholic Church, and appalled by the small-minded child rapists and woman-haters who lead it today. I guess that means I'm a self-hating Catholic (sniff!). I bow before thy tighty whities, mighty Is Ought, you were right, I hate myself! (Err, no. Moron.)

Very silly. I oppose the ideology of Islamists. Islamism isn't a race either. Muslims aren't any certain colour. It seems that it's you that's doing the sterotyping, Badtux.
I guess that means I'm a self-hating Catholic (sniff!). I bow before thy tighty whities, mighty Is Ought, you were right, I hate myself!
I don't believe that you're self-hating either. I think that you use the faults of Christians to make false moral equivalence with Islamism and terror, which is a very large problem for the West and Islam itself.

Let's face it, IsOught, if the majority of Islamists had white faces you wouldn't be soiling your tighty whities, you'd be overjoyed with them just like your homeboy Danesh Desouza who says "I hate Islamists, but you know, they got the right idea about how to treat women!". So, tell me, IsOught, how many Islamist terrorists have killed Americans here in California over the past 100 years? Err... *ZERO*. And how many idiots driving automobiles have killed Americans here in California over the past 100 years? Err... over 100,000. So what's the real threat to my life? Who is "ignoring reality"?
I focus on real threats to my life, rather than soiling my undies upon demand. Reality is a buncha dipshits hiding in a cave in Pakistan are about as much threat to my life as Saddam Hussein was, i.e., zero. Boxers, boy. Boxers. Them briefs be cutting off the supply of blood to your brain!

I don't think Edwards hired them as 'attack dogs'. It's not his style. I think he just hired them to get his message out to the denizens of Left Blogtopia.
If he'da wanted attack dogs, he would have hired you and Froggy. You guys are way more suited to the task.

You are. The year 2002 was far less than 100 years ago. You seem to have forgotten the attack at the El Al counter in 2002. Three innocent civilians were killed. And there's also the thwarted bombing intended for LAX at the turn of the millenium.
LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- The FBI and the Department of Justice have agreed with a previous federal conclusion that a shooting at an Israeli airline ticket counter last year fit "the definition of terrorism," an FBI spokesman said Friday.
In September, federal investigators determined that the shooting at the El Al ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport on July 4, 2002, was a terrorist act.... http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/West/04/12/airport.shooting/
You're right that statistically speaking, car accidents are a far bigger threat to your life. The key word here, though, is "accidents". You make the same mistake as the kool-aid drinking Mikey Moore.
Perhaps if you were citing murders which are purposeful acts you'd have a better analogy. But still a dishonest analogy because the majority of murders are considered criminal action, whereas terrorism is clearly an act meant to achieve an ideological goal. A goal such as the subjugation or elimination of kuffars.

Hmm, I'm the only person allowed to call my blog posters names, Is Ought. Sorry. If you don't like that rule, go post somewhere else, I own this server. That's LiberTARIAN, not Liberal. As in, a firm believer in private property rights. If you don't like it, open your own damned blog.
Regarding the el Al thingy, was that ever proven to be the work of Islamists? My understanding is that it was motivated by Israel's treatment of the Palestinians who are being ethnically cleansed from their lands in order to make room for Jews, and had nothing to do with some sort of Islamist conspiracy to kill or convert all Americans to Islam. So are you Israeli, or American? Just curious. I'm an American, so the State of Israel is a matter of supreme disinterest to me.
Since I stay away from apartheid states that engage in ethnic cleansing and the airlines that they run, frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn. I know who the real threats to my life are, and they ain't in Islamabad, Mecca, or Tehran. Those maniacs *try* to hit bicyclists, pedestrians, and motorcyclists, I swear!

Wow, this whole shtick about how we should fear and hate these evil brown people was all because of a post about two political bloggers who were the targets of a cyber-lynch mob? Somebody's (is ought) got way too much time on their hands.
Back on topic, I have a pretty good feeling that you weren't going to vote for Edwards even before Michelle Malkin and her ilk sicced you and others on him. Now that the bloggers have resigned, you're just continuing to flog them just so you can tell yourself that Edwards "lost" your vote.
A year from now, the only ones who will still be caring about Amanda and Melissa's "effect" on the Edwards campaign will be people like you, who are growing an entire field of straw for the sole purpose of grasping at it, just for excuses to continue voting for Republicans even after they have screwed you in the ass countless times.
That is all.

Wow, IsOught is really cutting and pasting a lot today! To save people the reading, I have taken the liberty of deleting his last novel, but I'll go ahead and answer his questions for him:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 11. Who cares what happened in 1948 or 1967? Is it my business what some foreigners overseas do? I'm an American. I'm not an Arab. I'm not an Israeli. I'm an American. Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
6. The peace treaties between Jordan, Egypt, and Israel gave ownership of the Gaza Strip and West Bank to Israel, and Israel continues to govern them as Israeli territories -- while denying the inhabitants citizenship. Their choice, They want to run an apartheid regime where they deny citizenship to a large chunk of their population, that's their business. Just don't expect me to care when the victims of apartheid blow up some of the perpetrators of apartheid. It is a matter of supreme disinterest to me, just a bunch of funny-talkin' furriners overseas killing each other and no business of me or mine.
7. People who've lived on a piece of land since the time of the Crusaders are being kicked off their land because they aren't the right ethnicity. That's called "ethnic cleansing". Duh. I'm not making a moral judgement there, I'm just stating a fact. Maybe it's justified. Maybe not. Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
9. Regarding Saudi Arabia, obviously you haven't been reading my blog very long. Back in 2002 I called for the United States to invade the country that the majority of the 9/11 attackers came from, Saudi Arabia, overthrow that venal government there, and throw all the Wahabi jihadist mullahs into concentration camps where they could rot as far as I'm concerned. You attack America, which the Wahabas jihadists did, you ought to pay for it. But noooooo... we had to attack the only Arab country that did NOT supply a 9/11 hijacker, Iraq. It was as if Japan had attacked Pearl Harbor, and we'd declared war on Mexico!
Anyhow, Israel is a matter of disinterest to me, just another theocracy that denies the vote to the majority of its residents so no different from any of the surrounding theocracies as far as I'm concerned (pot, meet kettle,kettle, meet pot) so I will delete any more off-topic Israel stuff in this thread. Forewarned is forearmed. If you don't like it, start your own blog. I pay real money for this server, so I have no obligation to let you use it for free to spew a buncha Likud talking points.
