An Open Letter To Michelle Malkin

Dear Michelle:

I understand that you are going around doing a book tour to promote your book about how "unhinged" liberals are.

Good for you, girl.  You keep plugging away.  Don’t be discouraged by the fact that your book (currently ranked #136 at Amazon) has consistently been outsold by Al Franken’s book (currently ranked #26 at Amazon), even though they both came out at the same time, and even though Al Franken himself is one of the "unhinged" left about whom you often write.

Don’t be discouraged that your little book tour is running into a tough time, even here in rural red state North Carolina.

The reason I write to you now is because I think you better check in on your blog when you get the chance.  You left it in control of "guest bloggers", and I think they are conspiring to undermine your efforts to show that liberals are "unhinged".  I think they are trying to make you look silly.

To wit, this post by your guest blogger, Brian Maloney, entitled "Evil Regimes Set To Topple?"

Maloney’s title refers to two specific countries "with rogue, corrupt and repressive regimes that don’t know when to cut their losses and leave town".  He speculates, with glee, that these two "evil regimes" might topple soon.

He’s not talking about North Korea, Darfur, Iran, or any of those places.

He’s talking about Cuba (which is fair enough) and . . .

um . . .


You know, Canada.  That’s a rogue, corrupt, oppressive and evil regime to the North.

I’m pretty flexible to a wide variety of opinions that happen to differ with mine.  But isn’t calling Canada an "evil regime" a little — oh, what’s the word I’m looking for — "unhinged"?

Anyway, I thought I would bring this to your attention.
