Statement from Edwards regarding Amanda and Shakespeare’s Sister…
“The tone and the sentiment of some of Amanda Marcotte’s and Melissa
McEwan’s posts personally offended me. It’s not how I talk to people,
and it’s not how I expect the people who work for me to talk to people.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but that kind of intolerant
language will not be permitted from anyone on my campaign, whether it’s
intended as satire, humor, or anything else. But I also believe in
giving everyone a fair shake. I’ve talked to Amanda and Melissa; they
have both assured me that it was never their intention to malign
anyone’s faith, and I take them at their word. We’re beginning a great
debate about the future of our country, and we can’t let it be
hijacked. It will take discipline, focus, and courage to build the
America we believe in.”
Looks like he didn’t cave…good for him.
