Some Red Staters Still Don't Get It--Updated
Loyalty to a friend is one thing. Drinking the Kool-Aid
This Open Letter to Michelle Malkin is shown as a recommended diary on the Red State homepage. I'm reasonably sure the recommendation comes from the Red State community, not the overlords:First, let me begin by saying I've never liked you, so I'm biased.
Believe it or not, it's not for all the reasons you claim people don't like you. I think you are beautiful, so it's not jealousy. If I'm going to be jealous, trust me, it's going to be over someone like Angelina Jolie.
It's not because of your heritage/culture/etc. I could care less. I couldn't tell you what mine is and I'm a mutt so I can get away with it.
Frankly, it's because you bore me. Truth be told, for someone that is so smart, I expect you to say more and pad less. And to be wittier about it.
Perhaps what bothers me the most is that, of all the attributes I thought you might have, the one I had the highest expectation of was that of loyalty.
Now is that silly or what? "I think you are beautiful, so it's not jealousy." People are seldom jealous of people who are ugly, so the fact that she thinks Mrs M is beautiful hardly rules out jealousy. And she complains about padding, but in the short five paragraphs contained here, she pads with the two about how "it's not your looks and it's not your heritage".
And in fact, Michelle showed loyalty
when the unhinged moonbats attacked Domenech with unfounded and disgusting smears. It was only when credible evidence that he'd plagiarized began to emerge that she called for him
to resign his job at the Post.My entire life has been one large high expectation. I expect a lot out of people because I think that if you want to portray yourself as something special, then you'd better "put out" so to speak. Well, my dear, what I've read from you just isn't that. What you have managed to do, in the words of the infamous Beatles is to "get by with a little help from your friends." Oh, sweetie, bless your heart, because that is coming to an end. In the south, they'd say you've shown your behind. Well, they'd use another word for it, but I'm enough of a lady not to say it. What you've done is sold out a friend for one article.It's not to say that I don't see your motivation, love, because I do. I see that Ben helped you with one of your books, and, in all honesty, probably wrote all the funny parts because you and I both know it's not your strong suit isn't it, sweetpea? However, your little notes came out before you made it a point to talk to a FRIEND about what happened before you flapped the carefully sucked in jowls and screwed him over.
With friends like you, who needs Bill & Hill, eh? Mark my words, little one, and by little I mean what heart you must possess to sell out someone as true as Ben. Elephants have long memories, darling, and I plan on remembering.
So will they. Make sure you've carefully had someone go through all of your papers. Once they have finished with Ben and all of the rest of us, you're next. And, like I offered to someone else, I'll head up the team that goes through your work if someone wants to fund the program.
Disappointing, and the comments are more of the same. I am sure that Mrs M will welcome this woman going through her writing for evidence of plagiarism. I'd prefer that Mrs Nachos would go on to research Jane Hamsher and some of the people who scorched Ben unfairly before the plagiarism charges surfaced.
Update: More from John Hawkins
Our buddy TC the Leather Penguin is outraged by one of Domenech's plagiarisms
. It certainly seems like he was begging to be caught if he was copying the G File, one of the most popular conservative columns of the late 1990s.
