Now that's just stupid

I normally have to go to visit Malkin's site to hear an argument this patently ridiculous...

So, he will continue his simple-minded, losing campaign and deny Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton the one-on-one contest they deserve. If John Edwards stays in the race, he might, in the end, become nothing other than the Southern white man who stood in the way of the black man. And for that, he would deserve a lifetime of liberal condemnation.

Maybe Edwards is already not a factor in the campaign because Edwards voters would split evenly between Senators Obama and Clinton if Edwards dropped out. But we'll never know unless Edwards does the right thing and gets out of the way of the only two candidates who have a chance to get the nomination.

Where to begin... OK, let's jump in on the idea that Edwards is a racist and/or a sexist. First off, this is a race between Democrats and anyone who'd vote for Sen.'s Clinton or Obama because of a uterus or superficial features is no better than the person who won't vote for them because of those things. Sadly, there are a lot of them. Either that, or people really like palliatives such as Obama's 'message of hope' that we can easily have for a better future instead of actually, you know, working and sacrificing for it. As for Clinton, gimme a break... she's 'prepared and ready'. I wonder if she was on the team in the Clinton Administration that decided it would be good to let the refiners cut production capacity, one of the reasons gas is now more than $3.00/gal.

Next up, impossible for him to win... Edwards is beginning to edge higher in the national polls and this will likely continue. Plus, as many have pointed out, Edwards beats all the Republicans. Clinton is beaten by McCain and Huckabee. Isn't this about winning the White House?

Jane Smiley has a nice counterpoint to all of O'Donnell's crap and asks, simply, for him to shut up. I'll leave you with that and one more thing. If Edwards drops out, it isn't Hillary that will benefit.
