The Dumbest Big Liberal Blog
Has to be Crooks & Liars. Get this ridiculous post
over there on Michelle Malkin.Nothing surprises me with Michelle. She tries so hard to be Ann Coulter. I started her fall from grace when the UC Santa Cruz students contacted me because she had printed their personal information on her website and they received numerous threats. Unfortunately, UC Santa Cruz Chancellor Denise Denton, commited suicide and she still has to smear the lady.
The two incidents have nothing to do with each other. Oh, sure, our old buddy Greg Sargent made a valiant effort
at tying the two together, but even he admits he came up short:Well, on June 24, Denton, 46, went and jumped from the roof of one of the tallest buildings in San Francisco. The reasons are murky, though news reports say that politics, scandal and her high public profile may have played a role. Did the attacks from Malkin and her marching followers play a role, too? No one has alleged that, in fairness. On the other hand, being fingered by the Malkin gang wouldn't exactly ease one's mental anguish, obviously.
Did you say scandal? Why, yes, there was a bit of a scandal
involving Denton, and it has nothing to do with Michelle Malkin.Denton's tenure at the university had been rocky. She came under fire in March for demanding $600,000 in home renovations during contract negotiations and, in 2005, an employee union criticized the university system's creation of a $192,000-a-year position for Kalonji when Denton was hired.
Kalonji was Denton's lesbian lover.
Hilariously, some liberal bloggers and a writer for Reason
are now saying that Malkin should apologize. For what?While no one is suggesting that her readers pushed Denton over the edge, Malkin has said nothing about the chancellor since her suicide. It might become her to apologize for smearing an academic, and directing people to direct their outrage to her office, in what were the final troubled months of her life.
Check out the comments on that post and you'll see that the attitude of the liberal posters on that thread is that "Malkin may be innocent on this one, but it's always a good thing to bash her, so we're going to do it anyway."
