Michelle Malkin posts divorce documents regarding Cindy Sheehan as an attempt to smear the new idol/martyr of the pacifistic left:

http://michellemalkin.com/archives/003250.htm

Class, pure class. First, a disclaimer:

Cindy Sheehan’s grandstanding is a very twisted and warped version of the world that only a small fraction of reasonable people (the pacifistic left) recognize, and I fully endorse ridiculing and criticizing those wild statements as outrageous propaganda (which it is). In addition, it is rather despicable and pathetic to see the "anti-war hippie" groups that have conveniently and opportunistically seized upon the tragic death of a brave young man in Iraq and the grief of his mother to launch a media circus in the lazy month of August.

Now to my main point:

Michelle Malkin is a sewer-crawling b**ch for publicly dragging Cindy Sheehan's personal life with her husband and her familyi into the public square, just so Malkin can air Cindy Sheehan's dirty laundry to the world. This is utterly disgusting and should not be tolerated by anyone with any sense of taste or class or shame. This woman's rocky marital standing and her personal relationship with her spouse is no one's business.

And if the Sheehans' potential divorce makes any point at all, it is this -- war sucks, and sometimes war can rip apart families when loved are placed into the hell that is war (there is no coincidence that divorce, domestic abuse, drug/alcohol abuse, depression, and suicide are rampant among veterans who return from war...whether it be Vietnam, Korea, or Iraq).

And top that off, she is an utter hypocrite to boot. Observe what Malkin once posted about journalists checking out Judge John Roberts' adoption records:

http://michellemalkin.com/archives/003184.htm

Or observe what Malkin once, not so long ago, said about liberals who brought up Cheney's lesbian daughter as part of political discussion:

http://michellemalkin.com/archives/000665.htm

quote:
John Kerry stooped to the lowest of the low with the shameless, invasive line that will be played over and over again on the news in the next 24 hours:

quote:
And I think if you were to talk to Dick Cheney's daughter, who is a lesbian, she would tell you that she's being who she was, she's being who she was born as.
Um, has John Kerry talked to Dick Cheney's daughter? Has John Edwards? Has Mary Beth Cahill, who called Mary Cheney "fair game" on Fox News Channel after tonight's debate? If they haven't talked to her, they should shut up, leave her alone, and defend their incoherent position on gay marriage without hiding behind the vice president's daughter.

I just love Malkin's "primary" source on this:

*shudder* Who wrote that snippet? A grade schooler?

The only way it would be relevant is if the divorce is over the protest. Since she's claimed her immediate family supports her, a divorce caused by her protest would go to her credibility.

These documents give us no information on that point. And without that connection, Malkin appears to be acting wildly inconsistent.

I have never been a fan of Michelle Malkin. She has written some pretty out there essays, and taken some positions that I find offensive.

Gads. Indeed. And how is that a *primary* source?

I find it hard to read this as anything other than mean-spirited opportunism on Malkin's part. The whole thing diminishes her credibility terribly, or should, to those who thought she had some.

Though I try to avoid eveen implied profanities here on Ornery, this may be the only way to put it. Shame on Malkin and everyone else trying to smear this woman. If you don't agree with Sheehan, ignore her and stop worrying about whether the rest of us do.

Yuck.

And by the way - I have my reservations about Sheehan, but Sheehan at her most confused is preferrable to the malkin c#nt at her least offensive.

I think Malkin is just highlighting what others like Drudge and Smoking Gun have shown- the divide that Sheehan's behaviour is placing in her family. She chose to be a public figure and have her life (and sorrow) pulled out, analysed, and publicized.

How it's published is another matter. Michelle Malken is too out there in her comments on this. There are times that Malkin is far out there (near-Coulterish), and Coulter is just downright scary most of the time (other times very funny with her sarcastic wit). So if there was a choice between the two - and allow me a full on guy moment here - I would have to go for Malkin. She's MUCH prettier [Big Grin]

Barbara was kinda cute when she was younger, although her nails were always way too long.

I was thinking more along the lines of Janeane Garofalo. She's good looking in a rough way. Remember "The Truth About Cats and Dogs?"

Janeane Garofalo is the perfect example of a beautiful women going out of her way to hide, disguise and run away from her natural good looks...maybe it's for the sake of her comedy persona - but based on her political views, I would guess she is one of those feminist minded chicks (derogatory, sexist reference used on purpose... [Razz] ) who purposely dresses down and avoids primping at all costs so that she can think of herself as above the conventional norms of society and be judged for her intellect instead of her appearance.

I think it's possible that Janeane Garofalo doesn't realize she is pretty.

I dunno - I dress down and avoid primping at all costs because I like to be comfy and loathe combing my hair and putting yucky chemicals all over my body (and because I like the way I look just fine).

I think Janeane Garofalo is kinda hot. I think she would be less hot if she "primped" more.

Oh, lord, I HATE to comb my hair! So of course I keep it ridiculously long and scrape it back into a series of buns.

I like secretly gorgeous women. Janeane Garofalo is a fine example.

But Ops..you are not a media celebrity in Showbiz. Highlighting your looks most likeley would not significantly benefit your career or income.

It's one thing for a comedienne who is fat or basically unattractive to not bother, quite another for someone like her. I think Janeane could actually put on a dress, some contacts and some makeup and actually be on the cover of Cosmo if she wanted. She seems to be consciously avoiding any highlighting of her natural looks...despite the fact that doing so would no doubt enhance her career immensely.

I am longing my hair right now, after years of keeping it two inches long so as to look like a dandelion.

I keep mine in nubs, usually. (like buns, you know, but the other way)

Yo, Daruma, do you spend more time on your appearance, and use more grooming products, than Janeane Garofalo? As much? Nearly as much? Why do you think that is?

My wife uses little to no makeup and I LOVE that about her. She's more than fine as it is.

Yuck. I don't think that enough women take care of their looks properly, which is a shame. I won't go to work without makeup, styling my hair, a nice pair of heels, and my pearls. Even if I feel like crap on a given day, I'll still go through the routine.

Well, maybe Ms Garofalo doesn't want her career to go the direction it would go if she did those things.

Or maybe she wouldn't mind, but that is not a sacrifice she is willing to make (I empathize with that).

And Daruma, you might be surprised at the extent to which looking "better" can/will benefit a girl's career or income.

LOL. Not at all. I brush my hair when I get out of the shower, and that's it. I abhor any kind of grooming products like hair gel/spray, etc. In fact, I'm of the same mindset as OT in terms of putting chemicals on my body (Of course, I am pretty fastidious in terms of personal hygiene, but thats different from primping and grooming).

But then, I'm not in showbiz, where your appearance has an enormous impact on your career and income.

I am incapable of taking a person seriously who has clearly spent more than 30 minutes getting ready for work in the morning. And I say this as a person who is forced, with annoying regularity, to go to work on some days in full drag.

I'm perfectly aware of that...I'm just pointing out that it obviously is not that huge of an impact for say your own career (otherwise you would probably have a little bit different attitude about the issue) versus a showbiz career. I did use the term "signifcant" right?

That's cool. I don't mind going through the routine and would be annoyed with myself if I didn't. When I was a kid, my parents sent me good grooming classes and other assorted Emily Post type classes, lol. I don't even own a single pair of jeans.

Then, truly, you are not alive. EVERYONE needs a good pair of jeans, if for no other reason then they are perfect for a) going berry picking in b) horse riding in c) stomping in puddles in.

There is a difference in women "not properly taking care of their looks" and just not wearing stuff (getting 'dolled up'). The first denotes a slob without regard to herself, and the other is just someone who doesn't feel the need to get "dolled up" everytime to go the store.

Personally, I love a woman that takes care of herself and her appearance. I know a couple of women that say, "well once I have a kid that's it. I'll just let myself go." So sorry - not for me. At the same time, I sure don't want the other extreme - June Cleaver. Give me a woman that doesn't mind having fun and sweating a bit, but also wants to look nice for herself and her man.

Edited to add: Jeans! You MUST own at least one pair of really-broken-into, just-oh-so-comfortable jeans. Pray tell - what DID you wear when you went horseback riding??

<struggles with an urge to send FIJC "loosening up" classes>

Much as I respect your right to self-determination and definition, my mind boggles at "no jeans."

I was actually reared Southrun, wore gloves to church on Sunday, and all of it, but there's a time and a place for that, and a time and a place for JEANS.

I think women look great all dolled up, and I definetely drool over women who primp themselves up. But, I think going for a romp in the hay with a woman is extremely sexy. So if she can't pull off both the "girly girl" and the "tom boy" look, I'm not likely to be too attracted to her.

By the same token, I wouldn't respect a woman who doesn't want me both when I'm wearing tails, and when I'm wearing jeans and flannel.
