Michelle Malkin Taking a Lot of Hate from the Left--Update!

I certainly appreciated her link yesterday, which resulted in an extraordinary amount of traffic. And I've been reading her posts all day, but it didn't occur to me to look at what the lefty blogosphere was doing until I saw a Technorati search for her name and Cindy Sheehan in my referring logs and clicked on over there.

It's ugly.

Andrew Sullivan's guest blogger, Dan Savage (famed for doorknobjobs while sick), says Michelle's Ann Coulter’s stunt double. Puh-leeze! And that's really the kindest thing out there. But like most of the left, he's lying about the story:

Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter’s stunt double, on Cindy Sheehan: “I can’t imagine that Casey Sheehan would approve of such behavior.”

More important, they seem to be Dowdifying what Mrs Malkin said. Let's quote Crooks & Liars (apparently aptly named):

Bill: I think Mrs. Sheehan bears some responsibility for this [publicity] and also for the responsibility for the other American families who lost sons and daughters in Iraq who feel this kind of behavior borders on treasonous.

Michelle: I can't imagine that Casey Sheehan would approve of such behavior.

Now, what did Michelle actually say?

"She has aligned herself now with Michael Moore, who considers those very Iraqi terrorists Minutemen. That's what he calls them! He's likening them to the American revolutionaries and considers them heroes. I can't imagine that Casey Sheehan would approve of such behavior, conduct and rhetoric."

Well, I mean how easy is that? Crooks and Liars is a huge blog, a top 10 liberal blog. And they have completely Dowdified that quote despite providing a link to the original video that proves them wrong. They want to make it sound like Mrs Malkin said that Casey would not have approved of what his mother was doing, when in fact what she said was that he would not have approved of Michael Moore's behavior, conduct, and rhetoric.

And they are whipping themselves into a frenzy over this nonsense. Atrios sinks so low as to mention her child gratuitously and nastily; no link for that one. How disgusting is that? Who's going to be the brave soul on the left end of the blogosphere who points out that Michelle was insulting Michael Moore, not Cindy Sheehan?

On the right we hone our arguments off the arguments of others. We obsessively correct each other and ourselves. We quickly point out the BS nature of anybody who would dare to Dowdify a statement like that, because it brings discredit on us all. And all the big leftie blogs are reporting this completely falsely.

Update: Not surprisingly, the emails Michelle is getting from the mouth-breathers surpass anything that Hatrios and his ilk would dare put on their sites (although you'll find as bad or worse in the comments sections). But let's not forget who's prodding them to write this disgusting garbage. It's Hatrios, Crooks and Liars, and Think Progress.

Further update: Well, one of the hate emailers got canned for his efforts.

One of the other emailers was a "Dan Opaki". Obviously there is no way of knowing at this point if that is his real name, but it's a unique enough last name that I googled it and found that there was a Dan Opaki involved with the University of Massachusetts writing program as a "Peer Tutor". Judging from the caliber of his writing submitted to Mrs M, you can't help wondering whether he should be tutoring anybody.

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
