I did a little digging on Ms Malkin on lunch. Only info is from Wikipedia. (I was looking for basic info, I wasn't going to SPEND that much time on her) Apparently she is a well known conservative blogger, among other things. But, it seems she has disabled the comment section of her blog because-well the anti comments were probably about as tasteful as the conservative comments we see on liberal blogs or the comments we see on AOL. Harry Truman does spring to mind. Kitchens and all that.
Also, I guess she's had a couple of best sellers. I suspect that most of the sales were from folks with chump change who wanted to see what all the hoo haw was about. There's a saying. "Never wrestle with a pig. You end up covered in mud (and, um, other stuff) and the pig enjoys it too much."
Which brings me to something a co worker e-mailed some of us.

Whether there really was an old Cherokee grandfather who really told this to his grandson; doesn't matter. I don't advocate ignoring people like Michelle Malkin.
Do keep track of where she and rest of her ilk are and what they're doing. But, don't feed the fires, don't stroke her ego, and don't buy her stuff. It's out on the web, if you can stand getting in the pig pen.
Actually she reminds me of the class bully. She knows which buttons to push to get a reaction. Nobody can stop her from pushing the buttons but, we don't have to react. Don't feed the wrong wolf.
