Edwards Campaign to Fire Blogmaster in Favor of Less Sincere Atheist

Democratic Presidential candidate John Edwards intends to fire his newly-hired blogmaster, Amanda Marcotte, in favor of an atheist more adept at concealing his campaign’s unbridled hatred of religion.

“Although my political and spiritual views coincide 100% with those of Ms. Marcotte, her repeated use of the word ‘godbags’ and other epithets puts us at a distinct disadvantage to our faux-Christian opponents Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, ” said Edwards. “Accordingly, we have commenced a search for an atheist blogger capable of pretending to respect religion as much as Ms. Marcotte despises it.”

Edwards also suggested that the populace might best be fooled if the successor does not have a French-atheist surname like “Marcotte.” “Perhaps there’s some god-hating blogger out there named ‘Christiansen’ who can help us put a smiling, prayerful face on our crusade to rid this nation of the last vestiges of faith,” he said. “Ideally, the person will have actually seem the inside of a church, if only in childhood, the better to feign a reverent familiarity with the practices and doctrines my administration will eventually outlaw.”

    Where is that Chris Treborn guy when you need him?

    Seriously, what did people expect would happen with this?
    Vocal atheists don’t compromise their principles. In politics compromise is the one absolute. Don’t take it too hard, Amanda.
