Shakes Decides to Be Shakes

About 10 minutes ago, Melissa McEwan announced on Shakespeare's Sister that her letter of resignation was reluctantly accepted by the Edwards campaign. She stated:
This was a decision I made, with the campaign's reluctant support, because my remaining the focus of sustained ideological attacks was inevitably making me a liability to the campaign, and making me increasingly uncomfortable with my and my family's level of exposure.
I understand that there will be progressive bloggers who feel I am making the wrong decision, and I offer my sincerest apologies to them. One of the hardest parts of this decision was feeling as though I'm letting down my peers, who have been so supportive.
More below the fold
I look at Bowers' post earlier today about how we get attacked and we apologize. He's right, although Shake's apology is one of true regret.
Media Matters continues to find more problems with the NYT: they refused Frances Kissling's letter's about Donohue. MM also reported Howie Kurtz said over the weekend said the Republicans don't hire outrageous bloggers, yet McCain hired Patrick Hynes.
And for all of the so-called liberal media bias. They are almost as bad as O'Reilly, the conservative mastiff, and other more neutral places for not challenging these comments by NYT and WaPo pundits.
Shakes decided to be Shakes. It must have been hard for Shakes to let go and for the campaign to let go too.
It's going to be a long year.
