I half hope that she doesn’t, if only because she’ll be that much more moronic and offensive in the aftermath. It’s not her own viciousness and stupidity that will have gotten her canned, you see; it’s the “patriarchy” and its inability to stomach the hard truths she so bravely speaks to power. Truths like how the Duke defendants really did rape the accuser, how Nifong’s really just a misunderstood Tom Dewey type sticking up for the common (wo)man, etc etc.

Allahpundit on February 5, 2007 at 12:29 PM

Bite your tongue!! Tom Dewey was a Rethuglikkkan, and is therefore EVIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sincerely,

Amanda

So enough already. It’s OT of this show, anyway.

Bryan on February 5, 2007 at 12:02 PM

OT? OT? We’re the readers — the consumers — and if we want to hijack a thread, we’ll hijack a thread. You can’t do that hierarchical, top-down, MSM gatekeepers trip in the blogosophere. It’s a Friedmanite “Free to Choose” thing, see?

Next “Vent”: Allah vs. Ace in Greco-Roman wrestling. And don’t forget to oil up, guys.

I’ll second the nomination. She is messed up.

The only thing I can say now is that people who have enough children or don’t want any at all–get sterilized while you still can.

The rest would take too much of an effort to censor, so it’s not worth putting here, but this girl is crazy. It’s people like her who speak of Bush’s fear power but then do the same thing here.

In that small little post, she wants all women to be deathly afraid that with conservatives in power, they’ll be “punished” with having children if they have sex.

Esthier on February 5, 2007 at 12:40 PM

Down here in NC we have a lot of fun at Johnny-boy’s expense. The most recent is his 101 acre estate, the a little 29,000 square foot “cottage”. I don’t think he wants the other side of America to see how his side really lives. For more good times about Johnny-boy, check this out:

I wonder if Amanda come over and help wash the windows?

Wuptdo on February 5, 2007 at 12:41 PM

thirteen28,

Of course, Clinton’s easy-going masculinity has always been disturbing to the anxious idiots of the punditry, who think that manhood is such a fragile thing it has to be constantly propped up by stomping on women and playing dress-up with solider costumes and cowboy costumes, like Bush does.

It’s as if Juanita Broderick, Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones, etc… don’t even exist. It’s probably because Bubba is black and only white men rape women, which btw, all white men do constantly. Any woman who says otherwise is lying. Or something.

Pablo on February 5, 2007 at 12:52 PM

Pablo on February 5, 2007 at 12:52 PM

Those names have been erased from liberal history with the same zeal and effectiveness that Soviet censors erased Trotsky. They never existed – just ask a liberal.

thirteen28 on February 5, 2007 at 12:55 PM

Did you just say “Impeach the Fokkers”?!

Yiddish Steel on February 5, 2007 at 1:00 PM

I think you were just reciting the “xx” version of the Olberman Transcript for any given Monday Night Broadcast.

Yiddish Steel on February 5, 2007 at 1:02 PM

Did you read the comment portion. Does she kiss her cats with that mouth?

Sadly, Michelle will probably be unable to read those comments on Vent because of their profanity:

http://pandagon.net/2005/09/04/living-in-the-post-freedom-world/#comment-24064

Lovely.

FormerLiberal on February 5, 2007 at 1:03 PM

I have read those links of this Amanda thing. She is the poster girl for left wing dialogue, this is the type of debates we get. When going national, they clean up their act, when speaking to their base…well read her links. Women who think they are men because they can throw around a few four letter words,are just “mennabbes”.

right2bright on February 5, 2007 at 1:08 PM

She feels particularly obnoxious when she is a guest blogger, so unless I’m playing fast and loose with the rules, I nominate a thread where she unleashes fury on a subject she has special hatred for: It’s all about the sex

Actually, it’s all about sucking d!@% and taking it in the a$$.

Alden Pyle on February 5, 2007 at 1:10 PM

Mennabbes

Candy Slice on February 5, 2007 at 1:11 PM

…who despises rich white southern Christian men and thinks they’re all guilty of something by virtue of being rich white southern Christian men…

Pablo on February 5, 2007 at 10:14 AM

Does she have Mr. Edwards in mind?

Hey, watch it with dissing cat lovers. The Hot Air staff is feline-friendly.

Michelle on February 5, 2007 at 10:29 AM

Great – by implication that also means female-friendly.

Entelechy on February 5, 2007 at 1:12 PM

Apparently Amanda is a commercial critic too.

Burger King?

darwin on February 5, 2007 at 1:18 PM

“Michelle, how about a hotair theater dedicated to your good friend, Chris Matthews.”

Impersonating Matthews couldn’t be easier.
Just hold a swig of wallpaper paste in your mouth and shout all your lines.

lauraw on February 5, 2007 at 1:34 PM

Heya, Entelechy!

Does she have Mr. Edwards in mind?

It would be tough to miss that about him, wouldn’t it? Unless you really, really wanted to.

Darwin, from the piece:

What I find interesting about this is that the consumption of meat as a way of homosocial bonding through the disdain of women fits really neatly into other media portrayals of how men are supposed to bond – generally by a shared loathing and/or objectification of women.

This girl could have made Freud decide to go into a career collecting garbage.

Pablo on February 5, 2007 at 1:37 PM

“This girl could have made Freud decide to go into a career collecting garbage.”

No kidding …. this girl needs a shrink, pronto.

darwin on February 5, 2007 at 1:50 PM

Amanda is like a hand grenade. Once you pull her pin, she’s no longer your friend.

georgej on February 5, 2007 at 1:55 PM

Now I still like dogs and all, but a cat won’t go to the bathroom on your stuff, eat your food, chew your things, tear your stuff (if their nails are trimmed or declawed) or knock your guests over by jumping on them and licking them.

Esthier on February 5, 2007 at 11:25 AM

Cats are o.k. except that they go in their litter boxes and then jump up on the kitchen counters. yuck.

As for Breck Girl and his new blogger, I’d like to see her stay. It’ll be entertaining at the very least.

We were at a party this weekend and a lib attorney told us he’d invite us to the Edwards Fundraising Party he is going to throw down here. then he told us that he’d invite us to the Edwards Victory Party when he wins in 08. I had to excuse myself to keep my head from exploding.

pullingmyhairout on February 5, 2007 at 2:02 PM

Thanks for the laughs from both the video itself and many of the ensuing comments. The bit a little earlier about the wallpaper paste and Matthews was pretty choice.

Aunt Bea cannot be pleased about this development in Opie’s campaign. An-dy?!

Readymade on February 5, 2007 at 2:12 PM

Impersonating Matthews couldn’t be easier.

Now THAT is Funny!
;)

Lawrence on February 5, 2007 at 2:40 PM

Hey, at least Amanda called CNN pure evil–I think that’s something we can all agree on. Of course in her case it’s because they aren’t derangedly liberal enough to suit her whacked-out worldview, but still.

I’m glad to see the Breck Girl is surrounding himself with such a brain trust. Do you think he has a requirement that nobody that works for him can have better hair than he does?

Edwards reminds me a lot of Bill Clinton, in that I can’t understand how anyone can believe a single word that comes out of his mouth. He might as well just say, “Hi, I’m a rich sleazy trial lawyer who’d rob my own grandmother, but I’ll promote class warfare and pretend to be a man of the people in order to get elected. Say, did I mention that my father was a mill worker in the last 30 seconds?” Because that’s all I hear when his lips are moving.

ReubenJCogburn on February 5, 2007 at 2:47 PM

I feel your anger. Good. Gooood. I am unarmed. Go ahead. Take your light sabre. Strike me down, and your journey to the Dark Side will be complete.

Valiant on February 5, 2007 at 2:50 PM

pullingmyhairout, you need to go to that first party and report back :) With Hillary in the run, there’s no need to worry about the 2nd one.

To all the meat-consuming men on this blog, quit your “loathing and/or objectification of women”, as the fair lady said, especially you Pablo :)

Entelechy on February 5, 2007 at 2:54 PM

Balls, baby.

The Ugly American on February 5, 2007 at 3:01 PM

Sometimes, a rib eye is just a rib eye, my dear. ;-)

Pablo on February 5, 2007 at 3:03 PM

Two Americas – calling Ms. Marcotte, calling Ms. Marcotte!

Because here is what’s most important to her:

Especially important to me is that he is interested in fighting poverty in America and putting that middle class dream in the hands of all Americans.

Next on her blog “The 28,200-square-foot Edwards home, also Orange County’s most valuable, will be divvied up soon for the poor. Mr. Edwards’ heart is where his mouth/wallet are”.

Heh, Pablo, I was ‘ribbing’ Ms. Amanda – but you knew that, mi amor.

Entelechy on February 5, 2007 at 3:16 PM

Balls, baby.

The Ugly American on February 5, 2007 at 3:01 PM

Naw, in the uneditted she said bowls or bulls or bouwls . . .

MirCat on February 5, 2007 at 3:24 PM

I’m not kidding here, folks: if you look really closely and freeze-frame this Vent you can see that that’s not really Gwyneth Paltrow – IT’S MICHELLE!!!

Halley on February 5, 2007 at 3:37 PM

This was a strong Vent. A very well done Vent. High fives to all involved.

I’d say that the moonbat in question is probably going to be toast before it is all over with. Give it about a week or so, assuming there is justice in the blogosphere.

itzWicks on February 5, 2007 at 4:03 PM

Now I still like dogs and all, but a cat won’t go to the bathroom on your stuff, eat your food, chew your things,……

Yea. But there’s nothing better than getting a wet, cold nose in the crotch at the end of the day. Well, maybe that’s just me..

BacaDog on February 5, 2007 at 4:04 PM

Mass amounts of Unnecessary Censorship

– The Cat

MirCat on February 5, 2007 at 4:25 PM

Great performance, Michelle. That was strong. HotAir Strong.

As for Edwards’ blogmistress…sounds like a real classy b#@$*, er, gal there, John.

CP on February 5, 2007 at 4:25 PM

Love it!

Er, women that talk and drink like sailors and… oops…

Kini on February 5, 2007 at 4:38 PM

The Evil Overlord and his Evil Assistance – a relationship that Satin would edorse.

docdave on February 5, 2007 at 4:39 PM

Is this the other America the Silk Pony keeps talking about? Seriously, it is some sick stuff.

bloggless on February 5, 2007 at 5:03 PM

Cute.

Very cute.

As for when Mandy from Pandy gets the heave-ho, I would give it a while. I think at this stage she’s an asset because she draws angry nutroots money towards Edwards that he wouldn’t ordinarily be in line for. Closer to primary time, and after these stories percolate through the MSM, they may reconsider.

see-dubya on February 5, 2007 at 5:23 PM

Bloggless – Michelle would have to go to pay-per-view if she read that one at Hot Air Theater.

Quisp on February 5, 2007 at 5:50 PM

After having all sorts of trolls hit my site this weekend. I am ashamed to say that from what I have been reading via my comments section, that the sections of Pandagon that Michelle read would be intelligent issues related blogging by liberals.

From my run in this weekend, I have to say that the majority of the commentary was without merit, not issues based, however the threat against my life was somewhat amusing.

E L Frederick (Sniper One) on February 5, 2007 at 5:56 PM

What continues to amaze me is how the left thinks things like Amanda Marcotte’s Duke rants acceptable and valid. After several years of contemplation here the conclusion seems to be clear. True liberalism is a mental illness.

Theater, nice, very nice. But please dear Michelle, anything but more Rosie.

Timber Wolf on February 5, 2007 at 5:58 PM

After reading a variety of Amandas “writings”, I can only conclude she sees men, white men, as virtually the source of everything that’s wrong with everything. This chick really has problems.

darwin on February 5, 2007 at 6:05 PM

LMAO! I nominate Michelle for an Oscar. Or an Emmy? Or… something?

Hmm, maybe I should invent a new award, and call it, say, a “Bloggy”? Yeah, that’s it!

More closeups of MM’s lips please. ;-)

kevcad on February 5, 2007 at 6:18 PM

“Hmm, maybe I should invent a new award, and call it, say, a “Bloggy”? Yeah, that’s it!”

Perhaps “Bloscar”?

darwin on February 5, 2007 at 6:19 PM

darwin–

Good thing John Edwards isn’t a white man.

see-dubya on February 5, 2007 at 6:41 PM

Wow, does she kiss her mother with that mouth, forget the cats! What a loser-BlogMistress-ick. What an a$$. BTW I was LMAO too.

Catie96706 on February 5, 2007 at 6:45 PM

Totally loved this :))

MisterPundit on February 5, 2007 at 6:46 PM

“darwin–

Good thing John Edwards isn’t a white man.”

I get it. But any casual reader of her stuff can’t help come away with the impression that “Christian conservative” men are the problem. Her venom is obviously directed at men, and the majority of Christian conservatives in this country are white.

Besides … Edwards is The Breck girl.

darwin on February 5, 2007 at 6:53 PM

It’s clearly true. Liberalism really IS a mental disorder. Her disoriented rants about the Duke lacrosse fantastic lies is beyond the pale. She knows none of the facts, but knows all the “White man is bad” talking points.

Hey, Amanda, fark you!

SouthernGent on February 5, 2007 at 7:20 PM

Wait, is this the guy that writes Pandagon?

I’m pretty sure that’s a dude in a wig because we saw that guy with a feather boa and pink go-go boots walking down Sixth Street in Austin last Halloween.

So… does this mean Rudy will be forced to hire a cross-dresser to blog for him? It doesn’t have to be like this Marcotte guy, right? I mean, could America’s Mayor get away with a well-spoken “Homocon” blogger instead?

Wha–? You’re tellin’ me this Marcotte guy is a woman? All this time I figured he was spelling his name “Amanda” rather than “Armando” on that blog to give himself more insightful commentary cred with La Izquierda.

Shock!

ScottMcC on February 5, 2007 at 7:24 PM

Another Great Vent Michelle! Bravo, Bravo!

I can not stomach reading much of Mx Amanda’s writings (but still wanting an autographed copy of “Unhinged”), I suggest doing an interpretation of Diane Sawyers’ alleged interview with Assad of Damascus (with Assad talking with a nice set of Bubba teeth for that touch of realism)!

Zorro on February 5, 2007 at 7:30 PM

Will the lovely and gracious Amanda be living at the Edwards new estate, TORTLAND?

bloggless on February 5, 2007 at 7:46 PM

bloggless on February 5, 2007 at 5:03 PM

I could only get about 2/3’s through that post, Mx Amanda really has not shame, no common sense, no grasp of decorum what so ever. Her father should buy her a copy of Emily Post.

Zorro on February 5, 2007 at 7:54 PM

Actually, we should really show America exactly what “Two Americas” really means. I don’t think they have a clue.

bloggless on February 5, 2007 at 8:02 PM

Wow…just wow. I went over to Pandagon and read some of this tripe first hand. Simply amazing that so much hate can be spilled into such a tiny tiny person.

Allah…I think you are on to something…

…gmail.com. “REPLACE AP WITH ACE.”

I’m quite positive that Michelle would swap out ANYONE for the Associated Press.

Pilgrim on February 5, 2007 at 8:07 PM

Thank Michelle. I’ve been whistling the “Masterpiece Theater” theme all day.

Joshua P. Allem on February 5, 2007 at 8:23 PM

It’s kind of scary how Michelle and Vent just keep getting better and better… this episode was great!

bofh on February 5, 2007 at 8:24 PM

Just had a chance to view – Alistair Cooke is smiling.

Entelechy on February 5, 2007 at 8:47 PM

Nicely done Michelle..and thanks for the blooper reel at the end..I was really curious how far you’d go for a dramatic reading. Lots of fun.

Rosie O.D is good for some rabid soundbites…and given the fun you’ve had at her expense on a prior vent, doing it in costume could be quite a lot of fun. I say, take one of Rosie’s and run..er..waddle rapidly. Now, it’s time to watch Jack put the wood to that d**kweed brother of his. Laters.

austinnelly on February 5, 2007 at 9:00 PM

I can see that this story is certainly making the blog rounds. I noticed that many are pointing out that Amanda has deleted some of her posts, while others are claiming she has not. I made this comment at PW, but I think it bears repeating:

This really isn’t about Amanda deleting or not deleting her posts. This is about a blogger who has clearly, but anyone’s standards, gone beyond a writing style that is acceptable by decent journalistic standards. This is not comedy central, this is not some nasty HBO special. This is a PRESIDENTIAL campaign.

John Edwards, while I disagree with just about everything he stands for, I still expect him and those who work for him to behave and write and speak in a decent manner. Is that really too much to ask? I can only think that he really had no idea how this woman writes.

Rightwingsparkle on February 5, 2007 at 10:02 PM

Gosh, I thought it was better when I thought Michelle was really swearing. With that hat she was wearing it was kinda like watching Alvin the Chipmunk lose it.

cmay on February 5, 2007 at 10:42 PM

LOL!!!

Great Vent Michelle. Very well performed IMO. Worthy of an award.

Yakko77 on February 5, 2007 at 11:48 PM

Hmm, I am in the minority here I suppose, but this Vent kinda irritated me. I agree with the point Michelle was making, but eh, I dunno. Perhaps Michelle’s just too sweet to be any good at pretending to be a lunatic, lol.

emmaline1138 on February 6, 2007 at 3:41 AM

Guys,

Check out this moonbat reaction. Its priceless.

FormerLiberal on February 6, 2007 at 10:34 PM

Wow, that was just wonderful. I didn’t realize that Michelle was such a great character actor (I guess it’s easier if you have pegged-to-11 strait-jacketed snarling mania as your starting material). Thank you, thank you, thank you, Michelle.
