It has been an ugly week. It has been made far more so by Michelle Malkin. As of this evening, I will be dropping her link from my links list to the right. My page may be humble and my readership so small as be described as quaint. But I have basic minimum standards. The William Kritols and the National Reviews of the American Right will have a place in the list. But, she has finally found comfort in the political gutter with fellow travelers such as Joseph Farah.
Don't worry. I will continue to read her so you don't have to.
In the past week, Mrs. Malkin has referred to Lindsey "Grahamnesty" (her words) as being guilty of "collaborating" with President Obama on the issues of immigration and John Kerry on the environment. Under a headline screaming that yesterday's Pentagon shooter was a "registered Democrat," she made sure to let us know she was above "playing MSNBC/NYTimes-style “gotcha” with this one." After campaigning long and viciously against the Holder Justice Department plans to try KSM in an open proceeding, she accused the President of flip-flopping rather than simply saying thank you. She celebrates Women's History Month with accusations of "liberal misogyny." She glibly smears Rep Charles Rangel's (D-NY) committee resignation under the banner "Culture of Corruption Watch." I went back and compared this in form and style to her intensely vigorous investigation of an actual criminal indictment against her old friend Tom Delay.
I can not much more brook her intellectual dishonesty by maintaining so much as a link to her page from mine.
Strangely, she has been silent on the now debunked Islamist conspiracy to poison our soldiers food. Having been so very sure of it earlier, I still await the retraction.
