It’s been a long, lonely day around here, as Malkin hunted around for a sophistry with a few miles left on it, in order to wish her latest failure into another fake victory.
Then finally, the post appeared!
The Pandagonization of John Edwards is complete
By Michelle Malkin
From John Edwards’ blog:
[long quote from the announcement that Edwards is not, in fact, firing Amanda and Melissa]
I’m with Allah:
The best way to fight the nutroots is to raise their level of exposure. Edwards helped do that. Thanks, Silky Pony.
And with Bryan:
The guy canâ€™t face down a howling mob led by Vanuatu protege Chris Bowers, yet he wants us to think heâ€™s strong enough to face down the mad mullahs and Kim Jong-Il. Riiiight. File this netroots victory under the heading â€œpyrrhic.â€?
So if Edwards thwarts an attack by Malkin, Bryan, and their perennial mob of wrathful whiners, it actually proves that he’s weak. Because instead of caving in under pressure from a bunch of increasingly desperate failure-artists who hate everything that Edwards stands for, he decided to listen to people on his own side.
You know, that’s pretty good. We would never have imagined that as an argument that someone would make.
Meanwhile, the nutroots are waving their guns around in triumph.
John Edwards ought to pray (softly, because you don’t want your staffers muttering about you being a “godbag” behind your back, right?) that he doesn’t get hit.
Hear me now, believe me later, Johnny E.: If you lay down with nutroots, it will be hard to get back up.
Believe it or not, that link leads to this post:
…Which also features the quote from our pal Rick Moran, of Right Wing Nut House:
[Amanda Marcotte] is a rank bigot, a nauseating, die hard dogmatist whose sickening screeds against people she disagrees with (including most non-emasculated men) have sullied the debate between right and left for far too long.
Unfortunately, Marcotteâ€™s type will always have a home on the left. She will be welcomed back with open arms and continue her unbalanced rants, raging against people whose only transgression is that they fail to fit their beliefs into her own narrow, warped, and cockeyed worldview.
Following Malkin these days has become like watching Cops, with a perp who gets pulled over on the highway and tries to make a run for it — crashing into things, going the wrong way up an exit ramp, barrel-assing through stoplights…
This is pretty much the stage where her tires are blown out and she’s running away on foot.
