The Armstrong Williams fiasco

Michelle Malkin has a post that explains why Armstrong Williams has done a disservice to people who are both minorities and conservative: the rhetoric from their political opponents—the ones that are also intolerant of minorities that do their own thinking—will likely be more hostile, and it’s no picnic now. There’s some very rough language in the post. Click at your own risk.

You need to stop blogging Robert – I love it, but I’m not getting any work done :)

I came this close to writing about this today, but from the opposite perspective, I suppose because I can never resist the temptation to be contrarian.

Why do conservatives always have to self-flagellate in public?

That may be the title of my post if I ever get around to it. The guy was wrong, (and he should admit it and take his lumps) but for Pete’s sake take a Valium.

Letting idiots direct your actions only makes you look weak-minded.


OK, I read Ms. Malkin’s post.

And I’m puzzled….

Why did a single one of those make it past her delete bin?

Why even give them air space? That is the verbal equivalent of stepping outside and finding someone’s dog messed in your yard.

People like that are so pathetic that it’s not even worth getting angry at them – they just want attention and to get a rise out of you, and if you give it to them, they have won and you have lost.

Not worth a response.
