Wonkette is suffering mightily now that it's no longer getting any Cox, but it still has the power to enthrall. And the power to bring smug, stupid and/or intellectually dishonest, self-loathing, racist propagandists to their knees.
Our Lady of the Concentration Camps and some of her rabble have formed this thing called Hot Air (you'll find it if you look), dedicated to ranting and spewing disinformation about whatever right-wing cause they find notional. On it, each day, She produces, presumably with the help of her other skin-worshippers, a short video. The other day, her video du jour was apparently a faux commencement address. Excuse, please--I sincerely hope it was faux, because despite having gone to a college loaded with reasonably bright people and done some time in grad school, or hung around her self-loathing husband who did, she's either pretty fucking stupid or pretty fucking criminal, and any institution that would hire her to give a commencement address should be unaccredited pretty damn fast.
I've watched some of this video, by way of keeping up with trends in propaganda. It's smug, it's shrill, it lies. A lot. The logic is specious, the reporting selective. Her video presence is wooden, Her style a perfect demonstration of why She works mostly in print and uses Her few appearances on racist claptrap like Hannity, O'Reilly, and other safely untruthful outlets mainly to give the other side opportunities to vidcap Her looking hostile and angry--a thing at which She excels.
Wonkette, apparently, hadn't. Watched some of this video, I mean.
wonkette: OMG I AM WATCHING MICHELLE MALKIN’S INTERNET VIDEOS FOR THE FIRST TIME
operative: she has internet videos?
operative: does she do the thing with the ping-pong balls?
More from the same post:
wonkette: GET A REAL JOB
wonkette: SHE SAID “GET A REAL JOB”
operative: BECAUSE PEOPLE SHOULD GET REAL JOBS!
operative: ON THE INTERNET!!!!!!!!
wonkette: SHE IS A PROFESSIONAL INTERNET PUNDIT AND NOW SHE’S TELLING WHO EXACTLY TO GET A REAL JOB?
operative: I think she’s referring to the Unabomber
wonkette: i think i envy the unabomber for probably not knowing who michelle malkin is.
operative: plus, he’s got a great haircut
wonkette: also: less scary
Our Lady is unamused. "Pat yourselves on the back, you tolerant liberal bastards," she writes.
Uhm? Mrs. Malkin? Fuck you, you lying, skeeving sack of shit. You have absolutely no right to act wounded here. Every day, you spew vile and venom and hatred and call names based on race (and then some, "then some" mostly being "failure to agree with you").
If you can't take it, don't dish it out. If you're the Christian you chest-thumpingly claim to be, then turn the other cheek. If you're not, then just implode from the force of your own lies. Either way, do me a favor and leave my fucking neighborhood, because now that you've provoked the outing of your home address, the chance that you'll bring down acts of terrorism on our little suburb is growing pretty unacceptable. In fact, y'know what? Never mind. I'll just pack up my wife and kids and head to the next burb.
Also? It's really great, Mrs. Malkin, that you knew to include the word "queefing" in one of your links to people making the ping-pong-ball joke. Thanks.
Update: The Wonkette correspondent is a racist, according to Mrs. Malkin and about two and a half dozen of her rabid friends. For its part, Wonkette recognizes that its post wasn't funny, and is vewwy, vewwy sorry. And Mrs. Malkin is taking great pains to make sure that we understand that every sentence she spews isn't racist. More later, because Auguste has been silent for a few days, necessitating considerable ventage on my part.
