Oh, goodness me. Political campaign hires person who curses. However shall young delicate things working for John Edwards survive Amanda’s foul-mouthed tirades?
Good God. Has Michelle Malkin ever been anywhere near a political campaign? Those people use “fuck” as punctuation. It’s one of the things I so adore about the whole milieu. They smoke, they drink, they curse, and since they run for office against people who question their patriotism if they didn’t smoke drink and curse, I’d be pretty fucking concerned. Yeah, Michelle. I said fucking. Want to make a federal case about it?
As to Amanda’s posts about the Duke rape case, sheeeit (ooh, there I go again), if I had a dollar for everybody who had an opinion about that case that may or may not have been bullshit (oops!) I wouldn’t need to put a tip jar up on this site. Plenty of people, black white male female rich poor whatever, had opinions about that case. Plenty of people have opinions about Michelle, too. If having an opinion is disqualification from work, I should never have earned a dollar in my life. God, what a twit she is.
And I can’t think of a single thing in the post about New Orleans that I disagree with. Course, Michelle was too busy blogrolling and socializing with people who thought it was just hilarious that the poor and desperate were trapped in the Superdome, so Michelle can wank about civility when she denounces Jonah Goldberg and not before.
But I think what annoys the crap out of me is this comparison of Amanda’s sitch to the Ben Domenech scandal. Erm. Ben Domenech plagiarized Salon.com for print publications,
including the National Review, both before and after he started blogging at Red State. That’s the fact, whatever color the sky in your world is today. Whether that merits him getting fired is a whole other animal, but the fact is, it’s not that he had strong opinions or they were unpopular. It’s that he was a plagiarist. I have yet to see any allegations that Amanda plagiarized anything.
Plus, I mean, just fuck these people all sideways, anyway, bunch of whiny babies. There’s six or seven things going on here: They’re thrilled to have something take their tiny minds off Jamilgate, they can’t stand seeing an angry, uppity chick make good, they can’t stand to see any lefty blogger make money, they don’t like Edwards anyway, they’re holding his campaign up to some false standard of civility to which they would never adhere themselves, and good Lord, people whose sensibilities really are that delicate could never have made it in Bushworld anyway so fetch the smelling salts, nurse, I think she’s about to fall right over.
