Stuck on Stupid

I haven't been much interested in the blogstorm about Presidential Candidate John Edwards' hiring then firing then rehiring of two leftwing moonbats to deal with the blogosphere outreach for his campaign. But now it appears that left wing religious folk are taken aback by Edwards' behavior by rehiring these folk, seeming to condone, by his rehiring of them, their attitudes.

And this little nugget in the current debate is too good to pass up:
In a comment that several Catholic Democrats told The Politico they found particularly offensive, Edwards aide Amanda Marcotte asked, in a posting to her personal blog, "What if Mary had taken Plan B after the Lord filled her with his hot, white, sticky Holy Spirit?"

The other Edwards blogger, Melissa McEwan, has come under fire for referring to Christian conservatives as “Christofascists” in her personal blog.

Thursday, the campaign issued a statement from Edwards saying that he had been personally offended by the remarks and that the bloggers "have both assured me that it was never their intention to malign anyone's faith, and I take them at their word."
For my opinion of Edwards' summation, see the title to this post.

The campaign also sent out semi-apologetic statements from each blogger saying she was sorry if anyone was offended.
How ironic.

Since it's perfectly clear that offending other people was the raison d'être and sine qua non of their blogging existence, rehiring them into an existence of non-offense driven, leaden prose seems like an mete fate. Moreover, they'll never be able to keep their fan base!
