Candle in the swirling dark

Yesterday, Melissa McEwan of Shakespeare’s Sister announced her resignation from the John Edwards presidential campaign. This followed shortly after Amanda Marcotte’s similar announcement, and, as I understand it, both women stepped down for the same reasons: they were tired of being chum for the irReligious Right’s single-digit-IQ trained barracudas. Read this for background.

The only flickering light in this dark, dismal time is the fact that Melissa and Amanda are now free to fight back. And you can fight back, too.

Visit Melissa’s and Amanda’s blogs. Give ’em some love. Link to them. Join Driftglass, Blue Gal, and the rest of us in our blogswarm. Kick up a fuss.


PS: While we’re at it, how about a Googlebomb for William Donohue? Check my left sidebar Googlebomb category.

PPS: Shakes is keeping track of the blogswarm here. I almost forgot . . . I AM SPARTACUS! Bloody hell you’d better believe it.


  1. […] While I appreciate the attempts of so many of my brethren — including Driftglass, Blue Gal, Walnut, The Quaker Agitator, QuakerDave, Carl, Paul the Spud, Blue Gal (again). Spartacus, Clio Bluestocking, Whispers, The Vanity Press, and shayera — to take the fall in my stead, be not deceived by their words. For I, truly, am Spartacus. […]

    Speaking of True Values, check out my friend’s Bushie valentine I posted at my blog.

  4. I don’t think you can Googlebomb anymore–Google cracked down on the practice a few weeks ago.
