Welcome to the Nut House

blogging, conservatism, holiday

Blogging time is short today, so I’m just going to link to a few things going on elsewhere —

Per Glenn Greenwald, Michelle Malkin is not only certifiably unhinged, she has persuaded some of her more loosely wired followers that New York Times editors and reporters deserve to be hunted down.

Let’s start with the following New York Times reporters and editors: Arthur “Pinch” Sulzberger Jr. , Bill Keller, Eric Lichtblau, and James Risen.

Do you have an idea where they live? Go hunt them down and do America a favor. Get their photo, street address, where their kids go to school, anything you can dig up, and send it to the link above. This is your chance to be famous – grab for the golden ring.

This is exactly the kind of rhetoric that gets people assassinated. If I were any of the people named in this post, I’d be calling lawyers.

Yesterday David Neiwert posted revealed that Malkin’s, um, thinking has been heavily influenced by a prominent white supremacist. Not exactly a surprise, although it does make one wonder what witches’ brew of character disorders is bubbling in Malkin’s (non-Caucasian) psyche.

[Update: The Heretik links to the wingnuts so I don’t have to.]

For a sad testimony to how far off the tracks our nation has gone, see “Gitmo win likely cost Navy lawyer his career” by Paul Shukovsky in yesterday’s Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Follow that up with visits to Billmon and Digby.

Finally, Gary Farber tells us how to have a great 4th of July celebration.
