You know you've struck a nerve when the Left starts calling you names. You know you're really making a difference in opinion when your every move is tracked; when hours are spent blowing gassy vapors in the absurd attempt to construct political balloon attack animals.
The latest proof that Michelle Malkin has risen to the upper tier of conservative opinion-makers is the Left BlowhardFest over Malkin's decision to forgo hosting anymore Bill O'Reilly shows. The decision, the result of a on-air flare-up, resulted in more calls to San Francisco emergency rooms for hyperventilation treatment than any time since Nixon was president.
MM chronicled the fortunes of the Frost family and their use by Democrats in the Schip debate. Once exposed, nothing was done to refute Malkin's findings: what could be done, really? Instead, another round of "attack the whistleblower" was quickly organized by Leftards the Internet over. Nothing was said about the comic attempts to use an obviously comfortable family as an example of Republican coldheartedness toward the poor. So they focused on a pin to dance on.
It all resulted from this email, found on Michelle Malkin's site:
Thanks so much for your kind words. Much appreciated. I made the decision to quit appearing on the O’Reilly show in response to the poor handling of the Geraldo Rivera matter (in case you hadn’t heard, he threatened to spit on me because of my views about illegal immigration and his staged “apology” on The Factor was a complete farce). I won’t go into details, but please know that your support means a lot to me. You can catch me on other Fox News shows and read my daily blog posts and weekly columns at MichelleMalkin.com.From the reaction of the Socialist side of the Blogosphere, you'd have thought MM called for the seizing of Starbucks' assets.
Such as this:
I think one of the funniest aspects of the political sphere today is that some of the toughest talking folks in the business really turn out to be big, fat, tear leakin’ wimps.Or this:
WAAAAH!!In a world where there's not enough news to justify the billions of pixels slaughtered daily on the blogosphere, non-events are just an excuse to unload your favorite pejorative on those you disagree with. And no brain cells were harmed in the making of the reactions of the blogo-pathological side's posts: none were used.
Pauvre Michelle. Booted off a FOX News show? Even better, booted off O'REILLY'S hatefest? That's quite the feat.
Michelle Malkin's a big girl: she can handle the slurs and arrows of the midget class. She makes arguments for and against important issues based on facts. It's a skill her opponents might try taking up instead of calling her names.
For at this moment, Leftist wordsmiths are busy coining new terms of derision for conservatives. If only they spent half as much time trying to answer our arguments, they could get out of the balloon animal business.
