John Edwards judgment highly questionable (Amanda Marcotte)
From our "it's the small things, ain't it" department comes the news that the John Edwards campaign has brought on Amanda Marcotte as their "Blogmaster". Marcotte is a contributor to the site pandagon.net, and has all the grasp of current events, rationality, and decorum of a schizophrenic, homeless, "History of Womyn's Studies" major. (No offense meant to those who are schizophrenic or homeless.)
There are at least a few leftwing bloggers who are capable of digging into a subject, and at least a few who are mostly rational. The fact that the Edwards campaign would choose Marcotte is an early indicator that they have absolutely no clue.
You can read a sample post here (my reply is under the name "IllegalImmigrationIntroduction") and more past instances of her brilliant thinking here: pandagon.net/author/administrator
UPDATE: "Shakes" from "Shakespeare's Sister" has joined the Edwards campaign as their "Netroots Coordinator". In contrast to Marcotte, she's just a deluded "liberal".
2/2/07 UPDATE: That didn't take long. As detailed in this barely-coherent post, Marcotte has been caught trying to scrub just one of the embarassing posts from pandagon.
2/4/07 UPDATE: Someone spent five minutes or so compiling just some of her more embarassing idiotic statements here.
