Teach Your Children Well

We weren’t the only ones to notice this bit of news from Tuesday and to find it the most troubling. It all depends what you mean by making New Jersey more affordable.

Generation Why? points out the left has been taking Howard Dean's advice on pushing the Democrat's version of facts and notes the strategy may need some work. As we highlighted in an earlier post Dean said:
"What the propagandists on the right have done is make people afraid to say they are Democrats. We have to be out there. We have to be vocal. We have to be pushing our version of the facts because their version of the facts is very unfactual."
Sloppy Dawg picks up on Dean’s grammar and use of the “word” unfactual and counters with examples of President Bush being less than articulate and asks - Who's more unsmart?

Do we answer with Dean’s version of the facts or actual results? Bush is in his second term as President of the United States and Dean continues raising the level of political discourse as he tours the country. From a Dean speech yesterday in New Hampshire:
"New England Republicans are different than most. They are more reasonable and thoughtful," Dean said. "You don't get as many right-wing wackos."
We also notice a certain intern in the office of a New Jersey senator doesn’t understand why anyone would be ashamed of writing vulgar, racist and sexist emails to the favorite person of right-of-center bloggers. We wonder where our favorite intern got the idea it was okay?

I'm sure he couldn't have thought that remark through, but I figured the best thing to do was just to let the remark stand and let people draw their own conclusions. I suppose some folks told themselves yeah, she had it coming. So much for reasoned discoiurse I guess: Intolerance is acceptable, even encouraged, as long as one is intolerant of the 'right' people.

Haha. I seriously can't understand when you guys are joking. It's nice to see that Malkin is ahead of McCain.

Anyway, who said anything about racism? I understand the sexism part, since "cunt" is a very nasty word usually reserved to demean women.

The guy's letter was obviously a joke or he was extremely dumb, but I doubt the latter. Even the most ignorant people can think of something with more substance than that.

My point is that these pundits generate hate, so they shouldn't be suprised when it gets thrown back at them. It's obviously better not to sink to their level.

Of course, whether his letter was anynomous of not was virtually irrelevant. He's somebody that Malkin doesn't know, and the public doesn't know. Anynomous, Joe, whatever..

By the way, if you want your blog to be accurate, you shouldn't continue to refer to us as senator's interns, as you might be wrong.

But I'm glad to be your favorite. I won't tell Sam.

Sam is on vacation with slow internet connection, so we doubt he's reading our blog. Anyway, we've gotten to know you and you wrote us such a nice email introducing yourself - how could you not be our favorite.

Have you read Sluggo recently - he noticed a certain IP address lurking about his blog - please don't tell us there are more than two Senate staffers paying attention to NJ blogger musings.

Did you read the first email in the chain Malkin received? It was racist.

Have you ever read Malkin's columns or her blog? How do you come to the conclusion she’s hateful? How about some examples?

As Senator Corzine would say, Peace!

Let me emphasize this point. I really really don't believe people like Michelle Malkin believe some of what they write. I really don't. I think that they're intellgent people who understand marketing and know what they need to do to get readers. The first column on her website is dedicated to blasting Bob Kerrey for joking around on the John Stewart show. She uses the 9/11 card to justify her anger, but I don't believe that her reference is sincere. I'm not going to mount a comprehensive explanation for my thinking, you'll have to take my word for it.

I dont think that Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter are compassionate people. They might be nice to some people, but I think they are generally unloving of humanity. Seriously.

I'm not bothered by this thesis, and I don't think I'm being melodramatic. I think they have issues. Even if they do just have good noses for business.

Actually, the best Michelle Malkin article I've read blames affirmative action for terrorism. Go to her website, it's called "How Khalid Learned His ABC's"
