Nice Profile of Michelle Malkin
Not surprisingly, though, it reveals much more about her critics
Two years ago, in the midst of an Internet contretemps over military recruiting on college campuses, left-leaning activists posted her home address and phone number -- and photos of her house and neighborhood -- online. They apparently were trying to exact revenge because she had published information they felt she shouldn't have.
The Malkins found a new home. For now, only a few friends know exactly where to find them.
The vitriol with which the Left greets conservatives is noted. Has anybody noticed that virtually nobody vilifies liberal columnists? We may joke about "Slow-Mo" Dowd, but nobody on the conservative side is publicizing the location of her abode.
Update: Mrs M talks about the piece
here and notes that she didn't agree to an interview with the New Yorker. Could it possibly have been this part of the introductory email that turned her off?
I’ve been reading and watching with interest your commentary on the election, and — particularly with McCain rising — I think this could be a great time to look at your work and career and influence.
As most of you probably know, Mrs M was not supporting Senator McCain in the primaries, and so the bit about looking at her influence is pretty clearly intended as a slap. But even if she did not get her wish in this instance, she's still a hugely influential person in the blogosphere. On most issues where I have disagreed with her in the past, I have generally come to the conclusion that she was right and I was wrong--Brownie and Harriet Miers come to mind right off the top of my head.
