Edwards’ Foul-Mouthed Lunatic Webmaster

Her name is Amanda Marcotte.

She currently runs a justly obscure blog called Pandagon.

But it turns out that Ms. Marcotte is, to put it mildly, an America-hating lunatic. She is also remarkably foul-mouthed, even by today’s standards.

Here is a sampling of her lofty prose, courtesy of Google:

That’s right, this wordsmith has managed to work the "F-bomb" into at least 2,470 articles on her site. (No wonder Google Ads thinks it’s a porn site.)

So much for elevated political debate.

And while we are on the subject of sexual intercourse, Ms. Marcotte was especially insightful chronicling the "Duke Rape" case.

Meaning she got it completely and hilariously wrong at every turn — starting here:

The gang rape is the essential scene of the patriarchy

Published by Amanda Marcotte March 29th, 2006 in Crime

So, while the site was down, the big news burning up the feminist blogosphere is this horrific gang rape at Duke. I’m happy to see so much attention being paid to it; I’m even happier to see that there’s been protests [sic] at the university. Without social support for the victims of these crimes, the assailants usually don’t get any justice…

What does that headline even mean? "The gang rape is the essential scene of the patriarchy"? Is Ms. Marcotte not a native English speaker?

And yet, even as we speak, Ms. Marcotte and the Edwards camp are furiously erasing her similarly scintillating internet musings.

Such as Ms. Marcotte’s further exegesis on the Duke ordeal (available now only via Google’s cache):

Stuck at the airport again…..

Published by Amanda Marcotte January 21st, 2007

Naturally, my flight out of Atlanta has been delayed. Let’s hope it takes off when they say it will so I don’t miss my connecting flight home.

In the meantime, I’ve been sort of casually listening to CNN blaring throughout the waiting area and good fucking god is that channel pure evil. For awhile [sic], I had to listen to how the poor dear lacrosse players at Duke are being persecuted just because they held someone down and fucked her against her will—not rape, of course, because the charges have been thrown out. Can’t a few white boys sexually assault a black woman anymore without people getting all wound up about it? So unfair.

Mind you, this was posted only a couple of weeks ago, after all of the news about Mike Nifong’s improper conduct had come out, and the accuser had once again changed her story, and Nifong had been forced to drop the rape charges.

And lest we forget, Duke University is in John Edwards’s home state of North Carolina.

Of course we know all too well how Google likes to help out their liberal friends by airbrushing their history.

(Cf. the "Restore Honesty" posts from Joe Wilson, which were immediately excised from John Kerry’s campaign site when he was exposed as a fantasist by the US Senate and Washington Post.)

So if uninformed and crudely written obscenity-laced juvenile rants are your thing, search her while you can.

Or just direct your browser to John Edwards’s website.

  Update!

Despite reports to the contrary, Mr. Edwards is hanging tough and refusing to fire Ms. Marcotte and another similarly afflicted web-worker.
