Alleged Catholic leader compares Edwards to David Duke

Daily Kos diarist "topdog08" catches this lovely quote by so-called "Catholic League" president Bill Donohue on the Fox Noise Channel web site:
By not firing Andrea Marcotte and Melissa McEwan, Donohue said, Edwards is promoting anti-Catholicism. He said the 2008 Democratic contender's actions should be viewed in the same way it would be seen if Edwards had not fired a staffer who had used the 'n'-word.

"He's nothing more than David Duke with a blow-dried haircut," Donohue said of Edwards.

Despite saying the postings "personally offended me," Edwards decided not to fire Marcotte, who writes for the Pandagon blog, and McEwan, who runs the Shakespeare's Sister blog, for comments they made on those sites.
Donohue also referred to potato chips as "saltily salty" and stated that anyone who thinks potato chips are not salty is an anti-Catholic bigot.

I guess Monty Python won't be blogging for Hillary Clinton after all.

Wingnut heads exploding everywhere, it's like the 4th of July.
