Amanda Marcotte: It Gets Worse
"What this move symbolizes in the blogosphere is that Edwards team understands how to move to the left on the issues," wrote Jerome Armstrong of MyDD. "The early move by Edwards to consolidate the liberal wing of the Democratic party at the beginning is very smart."
But now Marcotte’s attempts to airbrush her past are fast becoming a black-eye for Edwards, even as he earned raves yesterday for a speech at the Democratic National Committee winter meeting in Washington. "Edwards should demand Marcotte’s immediate resignation from the campaign," wrote K.C. Johnson of Durham-In-Wonderland, who blogs about the Duke case and acknowledged being a supporter of Barack Obama, an Edwards presidential rival.
You can see Michelle Malkin for Marcotte’s treatment on New Orleans. Isn’t that where Edwards Announced?
Or, you can go to Google cache. I guess Edwards isn’t planning on getting many votes from Utah or South Dakota, or reaching across party lines. And Christians … fahgit about it.
See, the folks at Townhall are not all that keen on the 1st Amendment most of the time–whining endlessly about rap music and TV shows and other forms of entertainment having non-conservative-approved material in them and all that–but if someone is busting out the word “nigger”, so long as it’s used in the old-fashioned Confederate-flag waving way, then all of a sudden they’re the fucking ACLU.
I can’t wait until Nigger Jenkins and The Flying Kike-Boy fight over the Cruiserweight Championship next week! Oh, you’re offended? It’s just a discussion about racial tensions between blacks and jews, and the ending will promote racial reconciliation, at least until the Zionist Conspiracy gets involved.
While the media runs around jerking Bush off about Zarqawi’s reported death, it’s important to remember that BushCo and Zarqawi had a symbiotic relationship to play up his “membership” in al Qaeda.
Well, the Texas House of Representatives got Republican Jesus and he reminded them that out of of all the things he hates, which are multitude, nothing incurs his wrath more than women’s sexuality.
Of course, if you’re a perverted religious nut, the blood and the pain of “cherry”-breaking is probably a de riguer part of a woman’s life, both to give the man a cheap thrill of actual blood while enacting the sex-as-violent-possession construction that is part of virginity fetishization and to remind the woman of her religious teaching that womanhood is suffering (see: Genesis).
Polls demonstrate that the average woman’s craving for abortion falls somewhere below her craving for stubbing her toe but high above her craving for Young Republican cock.
If Goldberg’s wife were performing her wifely duty of tying him and beating him every night before running off with other men so he can lay around feeling bitter and turned on, he’d burn off some of his weirder urges and we might even be spared his ridiculous column.
The idea behind this law and behind parental notification laws is that if men can’t lay claim to the uteruses of women that they fuck, they damn well should get ownership of the uteruses of girls that they made by fucking.
If ever you needed more evidence that “Christianity” is becoming more of a brand name than an actual religion, this article about a Christian fashion designer who is attempting to take on the Midwest is what you’re looking for.
By god, you rape your daughter and she better stay raped! What’s state power for if not to help patriarchal asswipes get their rocks off raping and forcing pregnancy on their very own teenage girls? What the hell do you think god made daughters for if not extra concubines to rape for yourself or sell to your friends?
Of course, Utah has always been known for harboring those on the cutting edge of pure patriarchy,
it appears the wingnut opinion on the proper lifecycle of the womb-body is–one begins as a bright-eyed, innocent virgin, loses your virginity in some weird post-wedding masculinity rite, preferably with maximum blood, fall pregnant immediately, and then die in childbirth so everyone can remember you fondly.
Let’s face it: The right wing has made “liberal” into a synonym for “nigger lover.”
Today’s Republican Party is for, by and about bigots. If it weren’t for racial bigotry, no Republican would be elected dogcatcher.

Agreed 100%. Calling attention to that on a regular basis is critical for breaking off swing votes that go to the Republicans. Republicans know that being the party of racism is going to start costing them more votes than it gains, and they’re trying to run from that. It needs to be hung from their necks like an albatross.
