Michelle Malkin Gushes Over Palin’s Suggestion Obama Is A Terrorist: It’s Everything I Love About Sarah Palin

Reported by Ellen - August 4, 2011 -

What caused Michelle Malkin to temporarily stop sneering and start gushing on Hannity last night (8/3/11)? Sarah Palin’s hateful rant suggesting President Obama is a terrorist. Of course, it’s exactly the kind of talk that would send Malkin into a spasm of sour sanctimony had a liberal said anything remotely similar about a conservative. But Palin’s indecent, inexcusable and inflammatory rhetoric didn’t just cause a rare smile to cross Malkin’s perpetually curled lips, it elicited paroxysms of praise.

Perhaps Malkin has forgotten – but we have not – how she condemned “bilge-spewing comments” at Think Progress or the Obama administration for calling opponents “every base name that you can think of.” But here are the Palin remarks Malkin didn’t just consider acceptable but loveable:

Heck, Sean, if we were real domestic terrorists – shoot, President Obama would be wantin’ to pal around with us, wouldn’t he? I mean he didn’t have a problem pallin’ around with Bill Ayers back in the day when he kicked off his political career in Bill Ayers’ apartment and then – you know, shaking hands with (Hugo) Chavez, saying he doesn’t need any preconditions with meeting dictators or wanting to read U.S. Miranda rights to alleged suspected foreign terrorists. No, if we were real domestic terrorists, I think President Obama wouldn’t have a problem with us.

As I previously posted, any responsible news network would have fired her and the supportive Sean Hannity on the spot for such rhetoric. But Hannity – who has yet to explain why he palled around with a white supremacist early in his own career – couldn’t get enough of this disgusting comment. He not only played it again for Malkin, he called it “the best line that Governor Palin had last night.”

Malkin was nothing less than effusive in her praise. As she grinned broadly and laughed, she said:

I love it. It’s everything I love about Sarah Palin. She tells it like it is, straight… and she never backs down.

The subject soon changed, however, and Malkin was back to her customary contempt.
