When a blogger goes to work for a candidate, she's bound to become boring.

This Althouse post on John Edwards hiring Amanda Marcotte to blog for his presidential campaign drew this comment.
There is no need to be boring, it's just that Marcotte without the offense leaves a hole to be filled. There ain't nothing else there, which is why she was a poor fit from day zero. She should have recognized that, known she would be emasculated, and stayed away.

So Andrea Marcotte might someday be remembered for being emasculated. Sort of like Andrea Dworkin being remembered for her "seminal works of radical feminism".
