Our friend Dana has an interesting piece about the ever-polite and consciencious (not) Amanda Marcotte of Pandagon being hired by the John Edwards campaign as its blogmistress.
Let the circus begin!
Amanda is already having to alter her statements (something I'm sure she wouldn't ever allow any Republican, Christian, heterosexual, feminist who is against abortion, or pro-lifer to do without skewering them) to match the more family-friendly Edwards campaign picture (don't they make a lovely family?).
Dana pointed out this post by the always courteous Amanda where she deleted what she actually said to put in the sanitized version:
UPDATE: Since people are determined to make hay over this quick shot of a post, I’m deleting it and here’s my official stance. The prosecution in the Duke case fumbled the ball. The prosecutor was too eager to get a speedy case and make a name for himself. That is my final word.
Oh, if only it were!
I'm sure once the short-lived Edwards campaign is over, Amanda will claim that she didn't really mean to change what she wrote because that would mean she was hypocritical. But I guess even the mud-slinging Amanda has to tone it down a bit to fit into the real world. You know, the one the rest of us live in.
