Michelle Malkin has to be one of my favorite “talking heads”, columnists, and bloggers. She’s always on target with brilliant research, logic, and wit. It helps that she’s Conservative but I would appreciate her talents regardless of her political stripe.
Tonight I read her blog entry, “JUST A YELLOW WOMAN DOING A WHITE MAN’S JOB“, and found myself wanting to reach through the screen and either hug her or strangle the bastards causing her such grief. They can’t argue positions with her, for surely they would lose, so they begin insulting her. Not even insulting her positions…no…that would be a slightly higher road. No, they choose to go for the elementary school tactics of attacking her physical appearance and calling her names I wouldn’t reserve for a rabid dog.
Of course, we are used to this behavior from the left. When they fail to win the election at the ballot box and ultimately in the courts, they fall back on calling the President illegitimate, attacking his daughters, and constantly reminding him of his misspent youth. When the Vice President speaks out against Gay Marriage they tear into his family, reminding us all that his daughter is Lesbian. Can’t engage him in the arguement…no no…attack his family. Woe be unto the person who uses the same tactics against them but any rational person would never think of it.
We witnessed it again Friday night when the Republicans called Rep. Murtha’s bluff. Suddenly Republicans were calling him unpatriotic when the word was never mentioned. Suddenly Republicans were calling him a coward EVEN BEFORE Rep. Jean Schmidt relayed the message from her constituent.
It’s the same old story, the same old song and dance, my friend(c). I believe it’s here to stay. There is no way to wrench these attitudes, personalities, and character faults from these people. The Dems don’t have a monopoly in the Marketplace of Idiocy either. Republicans are chock full of them as well. It’s pure stupidity. The kind of stupidity that burns Crosses in yards, gathers Jews into cattle cars, and flys planes into buildings. The “people” saying these things about Michelle are no better, and possibly worse, than the barbarians we are fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan, and many many other places.
And now, at the risk of running afoul of Mr. Malkin, allow me to talk about the qualities of Michelle that the “loyal” opposition find so troubling. I won’t speak of her abilities and talents because they don’t. I will say she has her priorities in order. She’s a Believer in Christ first, a Mother to her children second, a wife\lover\friend to her Husband third, and somewhere down the list…she’s a Conservative. Her first priority tells everyone that these attacks are expected. Her second priority tells everyone that you really should think twice before attacking a Mother’s children. Her third priority tells everyone she’s sweet and gorgeous and probably had her pick of men…Mr. Malkin should count himself the second luckiest man in the World next to me. Somewhere down the list her Conservatism tells everyone that she understands that sometimes a line must be drawn.
When you attack someone’s family you are crossing a line that, up until recent years, can be a Very. Dangerous. Thing. Where I come from such a verbal attack would definately provoke an immediate violent reaction resulting in bruised knuckles and broken noses.
God Bless You Michelle Malkin. Your friends out here know you because of the content of your Character and not the color of your skin…which is sexy as “aw gitout” by the way. 😉
