I thought Amynda “resigned”

Apparently John Edwards has developed a talent for sticking his own foot in his mouth now:

The aggressively photogenic John Edwards was cruising along, detailing his litany of liberal causes last week until, during question time, he invoked the “I” word — Israel. Perhaps the greatest short-term threat to world peace, Edwards remarked, was the possibility that Israel would bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Well, he pissed off the Catholics first and now he’s gunning for the Jews, so perhaps he can leap on the Baptists next or perhaps he should just go right for the Sikhs and those silly knives they insist on carrying around. You know Edwards can’t stand the thought of anyone who would insist on him covering up his beautiful, blow-dried hair with a towel.

In fairness, we all know that Amynda would never have written anything negative about Israel on behalf of Sen. Edwards. Let’s face it, Israel lies pretty far outside her interest zone, indeed, after reading her blog I’m not entirely sure that she’s ever heard of “Canada” or “Mexico”. Had we been so fortunate to have our would-be president promote her to campaign speechwriter, Edwards would surely have been announcing that the greatest short term threat to world peace is penises, white male Duke penises, to be specific.

Can you miss something that never existed in the first place? I just feel this empty sense of an opportunity lost.
