Michelle Malkin is one of the catalysts in giving root to the Tea Parties. She is the epitome' of the F word.
Funny, Factual, and Fundamental--meaning she serves as an original and generating source of assisting us to remember our basic principles when things get muddy, murky, and downright dirty and still have a sharp sense of humor backed up with the facts and the proof.
This page is dedicated to her brilliance and is filled with her blogs, articles and articles of others she found of interest. It also has some of her snippets from Twitter and other random funnies. She is entertaining, educational and evokes emotion in many.
You can click on all the blue links to go to the actual columns and read more about it. Again, these are snippets for your convenience.
Million Taxpayer March
This is a teachable moment for GOP public relations peddlers in Washington. While they search for the Holy Grail of Re-branding in tony salons and country club conferences, the agenda for 2010 is smacking them in the face. It's the three T's, stupid: Too Many Taxes, Trillions in Debt, and Transparency.
As one of the most popular Tea Party signs read: "You can't fix stupid, but you can vote it out."
You Might Be a "Radicalized Right-Wing Extremist" If…
Department of Homeland Security Sec. Janet Napolitano has turned her attention away from acts of Islamic jihad on American soil (which she now refers to as "man-caused disasters"). Instead to...
"Right-wing extremist chatter on the Internet continues to focus on the economy, the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and home foreclosures," the assessment warns.
The SPLC, you see, has designated the venerable American Legion a "hate group" for its stance on immigration enforcement.
Snippets from Malkin
Around 3000 at second Greenville, South Carolina tea party, practically booed Republican Gresham Barrett off stage.
NBC-DC website runs leftist spoof video of tea party as real thing for two days and counting. This article is by Amy Ridenour and copy of the video NBC-DC was running as a 'true' news video is on Eric the Red on his Vocal Minority blog.

From George Will, the weirdest comment of the week:
“Denim is the carefully calculated costume of people eager to communicate indifference to appearances.”

Malkin's Advice? People in yellow pants shouldn’t throw stones.
Here’s hoping Will is cured of his intellectual wedgie soon.
Oh, and my prescription for what ails him in the above photo: A pair of Genuine Wrangler’s Loose Fit Jeans.
Malkin Found the Tidbit Below. The Video of Susan Roesgen is at CNN Reporting News of Tea Party.
Two days after Susan Roesgen's much talked-about Chicago Tea Party live shots, we are learning more about what happened off-camera.
Sources close to the situation tell TVNewser as Roesgen was reporting her 2pmET live shot for CNN, she heard shouts from the crowd including "Damn CNN" and "Shut up, bitch."
As we now know, Roesgen wrapped up the live shot, saying "I think you get the general tenor of this," that it was "not really family viewing" from an "Anti-CNN" crowd.
Our source says Roesgen received an avalanche of email messages, some supportive, and some "vitriolic with crude insults."
CNN denies reports that Roesgen's email was shut down. A spokesperson tells TVNewser many people were emailing what they believed to be Roesgen's CNN account, but it was actually a non-existent inbox. Her email account was and continues to be active.
So far Roesgen is not talking publicly about the situation. CNN tells us she's now on a previously-planned vacation.

Watch this. Liberal toady James Wolcott argues that since he didn’t see big Tea Party crowds on his favorite left-wing tv stations and didn’t read front-page stories about the protests in his favorite left-wing newspapers, they weren’t newsworthy and no one really turned out except at the ones Fox News covered. C-SPAN host Susan Swain then displays front page after front pa
ge of local news coverage showing thousands of Tea Party participants:
“Does that change your view?” [Video of Wolcott is on Malkin's website]
Wolcott: Er, no.
Does internationally respected, award-winning CNN journalist Anderson Cooper feel any shame in the fact that he dragged David Gergen down with him to get in his cheap shot at hundreds of thousands of Tax Day Tea Party protesters?
250,000 Americans assemble peacefully to protest high taxes, massive spending, and endless bailouts, and all the liberal media can do for a week is recycle each other’s lame teabagging jokes on prime time TV?
