You have got to go read Iowahawk's collection of "emails" to Senator Edwards from the lefty blogger Marcotte.
The emails are written in a progression beginning with getting the job and ending with...you know, getting canned. Here is one of them:
To: Senator John Edwards
From: Amanda Marcotte
Re: Campaign Ideas
Dear Senator Edwards:
I had a couple of ideas for getting the campaign off to a fucking roaring start. I ran some numbers and discovered that (1) Orange County North Carolina has a shocking lack of women's reproductive health centers, and (2) your new home there has 28,000 square feet of space. What better way to address community health needs -- and appeal to the women's vote -- than by installing an abortion clinic inside your own house? It would only take up about 500 square feet total (not counting the exterior biohazard dumpster), and you appear to have a fucking awesome space between the indoor basketball court and reflective koi pond.
I also discovered that North Carolina is home to NASCAR, which as you know is the official sport of toothless Southern white supremecist racists. I think would make fucking great campaign street theater to drive over to one of the local fucking dickwad reich wing repugnican NASCAR garages and piss all over their goddamn earth-destroying Klan-mobiles. On the way there, it probably wouldn't fucking kill you to drop in at the Durham courthouse to support District Attorney Nifong in his brave battle to bring the white rapist Duke lacrosse team to justice.
To help organize the local campaign swing, I've lined up a couple of camera crews and programmed directions into the GPS of your Benz (the silver one).
On To The White House!
PS - I cross-posted my thoughts at the official campaign site, I will let you know about voter feedback.
Brilliant. H/T Big Lizards
