Marcotte Quits Edwards Campaign

She couldn't take the heat, got her ass out tha kitchen. We on a mission.

Back to the inanity of Pandagon, one presumes:

Amanda Marcotte posted on her personal blog, Pandagon, that the criticism "was creating a situation where I felt that every time I coughed, I was risking the Edwards campaign." Marcotte said she resigned from her position Monday, and that her resignation was accepted by the campaign.

[...]

"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 Bill Donohue doesn't have anything better to do with his time than harass me, then I won't do it," Marcotte wrote Monday night.

By harassment, she merely meant being quoted accurately for the world outside of Pandagon readers to behold.

I also like how the article portrays her as "targeted." Marcotte painted a target on herself by posting years worth of her deranged and foul-mouthed lunacy (apparently caused by deep-seeded psychological problems) for anyone who wanted to read it.

That's like saying Marcotte crapped on somebody's rug, and then blamed the people who pointed out the pile of crap for pointing out the fact that she crapped on the rug.

Oh, well. Back to accusing the entirety of the free world of misogyny, rape and racism, I guess.
