Marcotte resigns and immediate declares war on Donahue and the "right-wing noise machine"
Posted by: McQ on Monday, February 12, 2007

Not that any of this should come as a surprise.
I was hired by the Edwards campaign for the skills and talents I bring to the table, and my willingness to work hard for what’s right. Unfortunately, Bill Donohue and his calvacade of right wing shills don’t respect that a mere woman like me could be hired for my skills, and pretended that John Edwards had to be held accountable for some of my personal, non-mainstream views on religious influence on politics (I’m anti-theocracy, for those who were keeping track). Bill Donohue—anti-Semite, right wing lackey whose entire job is to create non-controversies in order to derail liberal politics—has been running a scorched earth campaign to get me fired for my personal beliefs and my writings on this blog.

In fact, he’s made no bones about the fact that his intent is to “silence” me, as if he—a perfect stranger—should have a right to curtail my freedom of speech. Why? Because I’m a woman? Because I’m pro-choice? Because I’m not religious? All of the above, it seems.

Regardless, it was creating a situation where I felt that every time I coughed, I was risking the Edwards campaign. No matter what you think about the campaign, I signed on to be a supporter and a tireless employee for them, and if I can’t do the job I was hired to do because Bill Donohue doesn’t have anything better to do with his time than harass me, then I won’t do it. I resigned my position today and they accepted.
I bet they did. And it wouldn't surprise me if there wasn't a quiet little celebration going on in Edwardsland right now. The rest of the "announcement/screed" here.

Short version: The right-wing noise machine couldn't stand it that a couple of strong womyn were hired by Edwards and so they attacked.

Shorter version: she's a victim.

Heh ... who knows, Pandagon might actually be fun for a few days.

What lessons are they taking from this?

From the comments at Pandagon:
I would like to believe that only a few unhinged men hate us, and that most men are pretty neutral, and then there are some that are very pro-woman. But I guess I am wrong;
Score one for Hillary.

Ahem ... I believe the correct term is "womyn" not "wymen." Otherwise, one would be forced to use the name of the oppressor in order to correctly spell the name for the oppressed. And, as we all know, that’s just patriarchical.

It was actually a spoof but it doesn’t come off well does it? (why men?) Ok, it’s lame as hell.

Soooo .... edited.

Because I’m not religious?

Your mind had to be in a strange place to even think this.

That’s just rich. It’s like a guy who shoots up a bar and then complains he’s being prosecuted because he’s a gun owner.

What she is failing to note is that it is her fault that she was going to be a big negative to Edwards.
