Stupid PETA tricks

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2007 10:06 PM

Three items: 1) The PETA language police are harassing journalists who call animals “it:” This afternoon, PETA dispatched a letter to Norm Goldstein, editor of The Associated Press Stylebook, suggesting that it is time to revise the book’s language guidelines—which currently characterize animals as inanimate objects—and bring the references in line with 21st century attitudes.

The surrendercrats debate

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2007 08:00 PM

Clowns to the left of us, clowns to the left… The Dem presidential candidates are “debating” in South Carolina. Hillary’s Harlem voice has yet to surface. Joe Biden’s foot has not entered his mouth…yet. Live-blogging over at The Hillary Spot and Sister Toldjah. And…spotlighting Gravel-mania.

Send ‘em a white feather

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2007 05:09 PM

Reader and Vietnam Vet Jack Haley e-mails: The White Feather has been a symbol for cowardice. I suggest that white feathers be sent to the leaders of the Senate and House for the cowardly vote that abandons our soldiers around the world. I was in Vietnam the day that the 101st took “Hamburger Hill” — […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2007 01:33 PM

Unhinged peacenik of the day

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 25, 2007 07:34 PM

Egad: “He pulled the rifle from the trunk of his Mercedes, removed the Bush & Cheney pictures from the office, and promised to be back if Bush vetoed the emergency war spending bill!” -Nevada Republican Party Executive Director Zachary Moyle. Jim Hoft has much more. I’ll add this one to the Unhinged Mugshot Collection.

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 25, 2007 06:25 PM

It dawns on someone in the media elite: Better late than never. *** Bruce Kesler notes: Blog reports about Marvin Kalb’s Harvard Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy study, The Israel-Hezbollah War of 2006: The Media as a Weapon in Asymmetrical Conflict, (40-page PDF) are quoting heavily from the report on the […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 25, 2007 01:57 PM

Please see these petitions, organized by Prof. Lawrence Lessig, asking the RNC & DNC: …to require of any network broadcasting Presidential debates (at least) that they license the debates freely after they are initially broadcast — either by putting the debates into the public domain, or by permitting anyone to use or remix the contents […]

Black like Hillary

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 25, 2007 07:36 AM

Oh, snap My syndicated column this week: In 1992, Bill Clinton hit a political home run with his “Sister Souljah” moment. In 2007, Hillary Clinton suffered a reverse “Sister Souljah” strikeout. If it’s not the end of her presidential aspirations, it should be. Allow me to explain. Fifteen years ago, then-Gov. Clinton was looking to […]

Reid’s bloody hands

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 24, 2007 12:43 PM

The NYPost hammers Defeatist Harry: From the start, Reid and the Democrats have seen the war in Iraq as a partisan opportunity. They refuse to present a unified front to the rest of the world – especially to America’s enemies – because, in their pinched view, to do so would be to weaken their own […]
