Congrats Michelle


The anti-troops brigade at UC Santa Cruz has now called in the left-wing blogosphere's kings of hate to attack me. For what? For linking to a Students Against War press release bragging about booting military recruiters off campus and for re-posting publicly available contact info for the SAW press machine.

Congrats Michelle on not just the death threats WHICH YOU FAIL TO MENTION THAT THE STUDENTS WHOSE CONTACT INFO YOU PUBLISHED ARE ALSO RECIEVING but for being chosen as today's "Worst Person in the World" by Keith Olbermann.

Video of Malkin being named on Olbermann's show is available in her post linked to earlier.

Call me cold or whatever the heck you want, but she earned the threats. I have absolutely no sympathy for people who bring something like that on other peoplewhen you publish their contact info, weither it be intentional or inadvertent. It's not like leaving it out would have seriously hurt your credibility as a blogger or columnist.

And while we're at it, let me address you calling them "punks." I thought that half the idea of combatting idiots was to rise above them instead of resorting to namecalling, but maybe I'm wrong.

Wonder if this makes me a wacko lefty...

UPDATE: Please tell me that I don't have to explain to all of you that there's a difference between condoning something and not feeling sorry for the person who it's happening to. *sigh*

UPDATE 2: The more I think about it, the more I realize that maybe she WANTED the kids to be harassed. Why else would she have copied-and-pasted their info?

UPDATE 3: One word sums it all up: Karma.
