Malkin Tent


Have I mentioned how much I love Matt Taibbi?

"I have to say, I’m really enjoying this whole teabag thing. It’s really inspiring some excellent daydreaming. For one thing, it’s brought together the words teabag and Michelle Malkin for me in a very powerful, thrilling sort of way. Not that I haven’t ever put those two concepts together before, but this is the first time it’s happened while in the process of reading her actual columns.

Previously Michelle Malkin’s writing was on the edge of unreadable; she’s sort of like Ann Coulter, only without that tiny fraction of P.T. Barnum/Mick Jagger-esque self-promotional flair that makes Coulter at least vaguely interesting. When you read Ann Coulter, you know you’re reading someone who would fuck a hippopotamus if she thought it would boost her Q rating. That’s a rare quality and it commands one’s attention.

Michelle Malkin doesn’t have that. She’s just a mean little dunce who’s wedged herself into a nicely paying career as a GOP spokesclown, and she’s going to ride that gig for as long as it keeps gas in her minivan."


If you're not reading Taibbi's new blog at True/Slant, you're missing out big time.

There's some legitimate question about whether Michelle writes many of her columns, or if she's the public figure head for her husband's political opinions.

Smacking around the Asian Queen of Faux Outrage at a joint named True/Slant...you can't make this shit up.

It's true, the GOP calling it "teabagging" adds a quick sexual thrill to my tedious work day when I come across it, and I thank them for it.

Taibbi is quite wonderful. Malkin's "stop picking on me" response to this was quite pitiful.

OMG, what a train wreck in the comments over there. Some troll wandered in there and they're taking turns on the poor schmuck with a chainsaw and flamethrower.

It's like a bar fight in HTML...

I don't really see anything entertaining about another man using yet another tired sexual joke about a woman whose views he doesn't like. I don't like her (or Ann Coulter) more than the next liberal person, but as a woman, this kind of shit gets so old.

Um, is there something wrong with her face? Seriously. I'd not even kidding, I don't want to rag on a goddamn stroke victim her... so what's up with her?

The old man's not gonna like this! Throw that toaster in the brig.






What?

Oh okay, never mind. Whatever, they all look alike to me.

Taibbi is doing some of the best political writing since Hunter Thompson was writing for Rolling Stone.

I especially liked "The Great Dirty Sanchez of 2010" and "The Million Man Felch".
