I’ve stayed out of the blogosphere for the better part of the last couple of years. It finally dawned on me that the whole thing was a big virtual pro wrasslin’ match being waged by libs on the left and “conservatives” on the right.
What a waste of time.
Still, I was amused to see the flap over a blogger hired by John Edwards, a spiteful, vitriolic woman named Amanda Marcotte. She’s written some pretty vulgar and nasty things about Christianity and the Roman Catholic Church at Pandagon, and the Catholic League called her on it.
No matter what you think about the campaign, I signed on to be a supporter and a tireless employee for them, and if I can’t do the job I was hired to do because [Catholic League president] Bill Donohue doesn’t have anything better to do with his time than harass me, then I won’t do it. I resigned my position today and they accepted.
Surprise, Amanda: Throw poop at people and they tend to get angry.
