Sont les mots qui vont très bien ensemble

Sometime Reason contributor Dave Weigel tracks Michelle Malkin's…. evolving views on the propriety of speaking for other people's kids in political debate.

NEXT: A Libertarian Rorschach Test?

  1. it’s very important we have people tracking and calling bullshit on these highly influential citizens (“and their paymasters”!) who hold terrible sway over the sentiments of millions. Hypocrisy, hypocrisy, and then there’s this. bravo, Mr. Weigel.

  2. Michelle Malkin’s children must be deeply ashamed of her.

  3. Someone could write an interesting book about where people like Malkin come from. They seem to just show up one day on the tube as designated pundits but I know behind the scenes she must have been on some farm team or interning or something. Where does she get her ideas? Does she even write the stuff that comes out under her name? Who pays for it?

    There were a whole lot of bleach bottle Eva Brauns that showed up in the 90s (Monica Crowley is a good example) . . . I guess they decided they needed some international flava.

    (yeah, slow day at the office)

  4. “Sont des mots qui vont tr?s bien ensemble”

    AKA
    “Someday monkey won’t play piano song”

  5. Where does she get her ideas? Does she even write the stuff that comes out under her name? Who pays for it?

    Ever taken a look at TechCentralStation? Shilling isn’t just the province of one kind of lunatic.

  6. “Mr. Hackworth,” Finkle-McGraw said after the pleasantries had petered out, speaking in a new tone of voice, a the-meeting-will- come-to-order sort of voice, “please favour me with your opinion of hypocrisy.”

    “Excuse me. Hypocrisy, Your Grace?”

    “Yes. You know.”

    “It’s a vice, I suppose.”

    “A little one or a big one? Think carefully –much hinges upon the answer.”

  7. Why on earth would you have a copy of a Neal Stephenson book close to hand this early in the day?

  8. Ah! From “The Diamond Age.” I knew the exchange seemed familar.

  9. Familiar, but not memorized; it frightens me to think that perhaps mobile just enjoys Stephenson’s work enough to get passages down (or not – as stated, I haven’t memorized it).

  10. “Someone could write an interesting book about where people like Malkin come from. They seem to just show up one day on the tube as designated pundits…”

    She’s on TV because she’s photogenic.

  11. Ever taken a look at TechCentralStation? Shilling isn’t just the province of one kind of lunatic.

    Occasional contributions there from our own beloved Reasonoids notwithstanding, I’m glad I’m not the only one here who thinks so. I have seen some WHACKED out stuff on my few ventures to that site. To the point where I felt my very cognition had been violated merely by having taken in some of the insane and twisted “logic” on display there.

    And while I’m on the subject, while I generally enjoy portions of the Lew Rockwell site, he’s got some seriously butt-useless dopes masquerading as pundits linked there.

  12. She didn’t just rise out of the devil’s bowels. She put a lot of time in being insane and incoherent for the Seattle Times before she graduated to being insane and incoherent nationally.

  13. “Someone could write an interesting book about where people like Malkin come from…”

    Somewhere along the way she had to have a mentor or benefactor, someone with more money than taste who saw something in her “ideas.” We need to find this guy, whoever he is, and lobotomize him immediately in the interests of public safety.

  14. saw something in her “ideas.” We need to find this guy, whoever he is, and lobotomize him immediately in the interests of public safety

    Too late for that, doncha think?

  15. Perhaps what we should do is find a place where potential benefactors congregate and then get the cops to institute a program of randomly searching them for signs that they’re planning another Michelle Malkin. That way, we can reassure the public that we’re protecting them from potential future acts of idiot punditry and show our commitment to preventing future Michelle Malkins. Then, when we run for reelection, no one can accuse us of being soft on pseudojournalism.

  16. But why does Michelle Malkin keep getting hotter and hotter as she gets whackier and whackier? What hand framed this fearful symmetry?

    Fortunately, I recently realized that with just a little bit of editing, I can twist any Michelle Malkin column into my wildest, most perverted sexual fantasies. Example:

    Before:
    February 6, 2002: If you are sick of hearing about teen pop star Britney Spears — what she wore (or didn’t wear) in her Pepsi Super Bowl ads, where she violated underage drinking laws, how she enjoyed being licked by a dancer in her obscene music video “I’m a Slave 4 U,” and all the other self-indulgent details — there is an alternative. Her name is Mandy Moore.

    After:
    February 6, 2002: A dozen flickering candles illuminated the bedchamber where my prize awaited me. “If you are sick of hearing about teen pop star Britney Spears — what she wore (or didn’t wear) in her Pepsi Super Bowl ads, where she violated underage drinking laws, how she enjoyed being licked by a dancer in her obscene music video ‘I’m a Slave 4 U,’ and all the other self-indulgent details — there is an alternative. Her name is Mandy Moore,” Michelle Malkin tried to say, but couldn’t, because of the ballgag.

    Etc., etc.

  17. Michelle Malkin tried to say, but couldn’t, because of the ballgag.

    Well, you definitely have my attention…

  18. un moment, s’il vous plait:

    “voulez-vous coucher avec moi” ont cinq mots…

    which three words?

    (ha ha)

  19. Well, you definitely have my attention…

    I think thoreau and joe have previously spoken of perverse Michelle Malkin fantasies too. We could form a club. Although the meetings would be pretty lame with, like, four guys and no Michelle Malkin.

  20. Stevo, your Michelle Malkin fantasies are far better than most of mine.

    The best, however, involves her, two other hot female conservative pundits, a wardrobe malfunction…and the MUTE button on my remote!

  21. Stevo Darkly,

    But why does Michelle Malkin keep getting hotter and hotter as she gets whackier and whackier?

    You must like cross-eyed chicks.

  22. Well, in Stevo’s defense, I always kinda dug Karen Black.

  23. fwiw, it’s “sont les mots” or am I missing a joke?

  24. No, that’s a typo–I initially refrained from fixing it because MT stores these things by their titles and I was worried it might lose the comments or something if I changed it. But I vaguely remember having fixed a title before without incident, so maybe I’lll see what happens…

  25. …and I can’t be the only guy who has pictured Ann Coulter as Ilsa She-Wolf Of The SS

  26. I think thoreau and joe have previously spoken of perverse Michelle Malkin fantasies too. We could form a club. Although the meetings would be pretty lame with, like, four guys and no Michelle Malkin.

    Glad to see I’m not the only one with thoughts of hot, hot crazy statist action.

    Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter.

    I like to call that fantasy “Angry Sandwich.”

  27. Actually, Michelle Malkin has said many things that I agree with. However, when she starts talking about pop culture and how it erodes morality, I think she gets a little unhinged.

    But moving on …

    Gentlemen, if conservative pundits like Michelle Malkin or Ann Coulter cause us to have twisted, perverse and perhaps unhealthy sexual fantasies, then I think we need to look deep, deep into ourselves and ask ourselves some hard questions:

    1) What’s wrong with these chicks, that they cause us to have these evil thoughts?

    2) Are these women dangerous?

    3) Should their writings be banned?

    4) Or should the women themselves be locked up in camps, to insure they can’t infect our minds?

    5) Don’t forget, once they arrive at the camp, they have to be stripped naked and then hosed down, for cleanliness.

    6) What clothing should be issued to camp residents? Something tight and skimpy, to minimize the risks of hiding contraband. I’m thinking short-shorts and belly shirts for daytime wear, and black lacy lingerie at night.

    7) Oh, God. This is seriously a problem.

  28. The only part of any of this that’s even vaguely appealing is the ball gag, and for reasons having nothing to do with sex.
