Malkin says progressives booed Hillary because she asked them to support the troops. If you play the clip she linked to, you can hear people starting to boo when she talks about the troops — something to the effect that the troops are the best we have — but then the clip cuts off suddenly.
What Malkin cuts off is that people were shouting “BRING THEM HOME!”
They were not booing the troops. They were booing Hillary for not supporting the troops.
I sat in that hall and know good and well no one in that crowd booed the troops. In fact, as I recall, during other speeches (like John Kerry’s, to the same audience) the same audience applauded expressions of support for the troops.
Malkin’s blog is all about targeting the people she wants her readers to hate. Hate is what Malkin is all about. It’s her reason for living. She lies and distorts and smears, and she cultivates hate.
Right now I’m so furious (that’s anger, not hate) I wish I believed in hell so I could imagine Malkin in it. At least, we’ve still got karma.
I’m home, by the way.
Update: Crooks & Liars found a clip of Clinton’s entire speech. The section in question starts at the 24:35 mark. I can’t hear the shouts clearly, but it’s obvious people in the crowd were shouting, not booing. Then a couple of beats later when the Senator spoke about providing better body armor, etc., people applauded.
