Michelle Obama is a crony of color says Malkin in her new book

Crossposted at Daily Kos

  Right wing hag Michelle Malkin, who posts on the racist, xenophobic website, has written a new book through Regnery Publishing titled Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies.

   The following is an excerpt from pages 12-13 in her new book.

    But they are still in the minority. And there will be more predictable excuses. As I document in this book, Obama’s cronies of color (beginning with his own wife) reach for the race card when their dubious judgment is questioned. And when all else fails, there’s always the “I inherited the problem” alibi.

   To which I reply: Read the book. Barack Obama owns this cabinet of tax cheats, crooks, and cronies. It is his and his alone. In the era of “new politics,” judge him as you would judge other mere mortals. Judge him not by the company that preceded him.

Judge him by the company he keeps.

    First off, much of this diary is snark and satire, though the Malkin quote is real. Please understand that the proper way to knock this shit down is to call it what it is, and to deny the fact that Michelle Malkin is a despicable person is folly, in this diarist’s opinion. Strong language IS appropriate in circumstances such as these.

A hat tip to, where I found this quote, and who really deserves any donations you can give them.

   Wow. Where do we begin in picking apart this dirty, lying POS.

   Michelle Malkin seems to believe she can roll a dildo in glitter and tell us it is actually a popsicle, and that should be enough for us to blow it as hard as she does.

   The point Michelle seems to make is to buy the book, and any other bullshit she could sell you if you let her.

   Words come to my mind.

   Words like racist, harpy and  Bush cheerleading jackass.

   Will someone tell Michelle she is NOT WHITE!

   Not that being white is an excuse. I guess being blue-blooded is.

The remains of the first American lost in the Persian Gulf War have been found in Iraq, the military said Sunday, after struggling for nearly two decades with the question of whether he was dead or alive.

The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology has positively identified the remains of Captain Michael “Scott” Speicher, whose disappearance has bedeviled investigators since his jet was shot down over the Iraq desert on the first night of the 1991 war………………

Obama Trims Sails On Health Reform

He Seeks to Rally Support by Promising Less

From the start of his presidency, Barack Obama made clear that his plan for enacting comprehensive health-care reform came down to three words: fast, broad and bipartisan.

That was then.

Now, as lawmakers begin to flee Washington for a month-long recess, the White House team is retooling its message and strategy, hoping a more modest approach will reinvigorate Obama’s signature domestic policy initiative and give him a first-year victory for Democrats to carry into the 2010 midterm elections.

Legislative wrangling, a well-coordinated Republican opposition and the sheer complexity of an issue that consumes nearly one-fifth of the nation’s economy have taken a toll on the president and his bold ambitions.

Conspiracy Trial for 100 Dissidents Begins in Iran


Published: August 1, 2009

BEIRUT, Lebanon – The Iranian authorities opened an extraordinary mass trial against more than 100 opposition figures on Saturday, accusing them of conspiring with foreign powers to stage a revolution through terrorism, subversion, and a media campaign to discredit last month’s presidential election.

The trial, coming just days before President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is to be sworn in for a second term, signaled an intensified government attack on the opposition movement, which maintains that the June 12 election was rigged and continues to muster widespread street protests.

The accusations read out in the courtroom were a broadside against virtually every major figure associated with reform in Iran, going well beyond those actually arrested. State television broadcast images of the defendants, who included a former vice president and a Newsweek reporter, as well as some of the reform movement’s best-known spokesmen, clad in prison uniforms and listening as prosecutors outlined their accusations in a large marble-floored courtroom.

Sunday Morning Fiction

As I like to remind people from time to time, here on DocuDharma we encourage creative writing, fiction, and silliness (as well as advanced HTML, pretty pictures, and videos).

This is why we allow the virtually limitless amount of 3 essays a day (I can hardly come up with one most days), but if that stifles your creativity let me know and I’ll lobby for raising it.

I particularly like to feature them on Sunday mornings when you can be relaxed and easy going, and late at night when us insomniacs are desperate for something new and entertaining.

Today I’d like to highlight the latest installments of two running fictional features-

As usual, I`m late by a day with my Friday distractions.

These ‘Distractions in Color’ are from my sister Gypsy`s  serendipitous meeting with a lady who rescued them.

After getting permission to shoot them, photographically speaking of course, she sent them to me for this weeks distractions.

I`ll start off with some color.

The First One’s Always Free … Weekend Anthropology

This is #4 of my little Mini Series on Weekend Anthroplogy. Here’s the link to last week’s edition..

My opening prayer tonight… I got it into my head to find a nice version of Simple Gifts in the toobs. There’s quite a few that are either churchy or Coplandy and just not hitting the mark for me. Then I discovered this. Exquisite.

I looked for a tale from Burma (Myanmar), as I was thinking of this news:

The court has postponed issuing a verdict in the trial of Burma’s democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi. It was scheduled to be announced Friday, but her lawyer says the court instead declared an unspecified “legal problem” had to first be decided … The court unexpectedly postponed the verdict until August 11. more about that here
