“Blogmaster” Amanda Marcotte has resigned from the Edwards’ campaign (the site is currently down). Of course, it’s all the right wing’s and Catholic activists’ fault (a blame-avoidance strategy I highlighted on The O’Reilly Factor tonight before news of Marcotte’s resignation broke)
Well, not really. In politics as in comedy and network design, timing is everything. The time to spring a story on Amanda’s bad attitude toward men would have been October, 2008, and only if Edwards had an election to lose. But when rookies like Malkin get involved it’s all about them, and all about right now.
Of course, the irony in this is Malkin accusing anybody of being “offensive.” Really.
UPDATE: Conservative bloggers as a whole are gloating about this (see: James Joyner for a pile of links). I suppose I should be too since Amanada Marcotte is one of my least favorite people in the entire universe, but as Malkin is on the same list for me, I’m curbing my enthusiasm. Is the blogosphere good for anything besides taking scalps?
UPDATE2: Another scalp, and that answers the question.
