Edwards takes principled stand

That's right, he is keeping the potty mouthed radical feminist who says she never meant to offend anyone's religious beliefs.

Why would anybody be offended by this?

Q: What if Mary had taken Plan B after the Lord filled her with his hot, white, sticky Holy Spirit?

A: You’d have to justify your misogyny with another ancient mythology.

You Christofascists just need to lighten up. Edwards has made a poltical calculation and decided he needs the nutroots to win the primary. After that, we'll see. It was fairly clear that he would have caught a lot of grief if he fired Marcotte and Melissa McEwan. It is also clear that he will catch a lot of grief by keeping them but the question is which move is more likely to get him the nomination and on that score, pandering to feminists is better than caving to Catholics.

Our job is to make the Edwards campaign suffer for its decision and the best way to do that is to make Marcotte's and McEwan's noxious words common knowledge.
