John Edwards Hires Liberal Blogger Who Supports Duke Lacrosse Prosecution?
Been awhile since I've looked at the Duke Lacrosse case because it seems like such an obvious farce that I feel like I'm beating a dead horse's ass by taking on Nifong. But amazingly, there are still kooks out there who think that the young men were guilty. And John Edwards just hired
one of them as his campaign's blogger!
“Left-wing blogger Amanda Marcotte of the vociferously anti-war web site Pandagon has been named by the John Edwards campaign as their new blogmaster.
“The extent of Ms. Marcotte’s responsibilities at the Edwards site, and the nature of the political operations she will be undertaking as a member of the Edwards campaign, have not yet been detailed publicly.”

"Can’t a few white boys sexually assault a black woman anymore without people getting all wound up about it?
As you can see, not only is Amanda a kook, but a foul-mouthed kook as well. Here's the place where the original post
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.
So she still believes that the stripper was raped. Grade A kook. Great hire, John!
