Michelle Malkin addresses the troops:
Positive and focused. She actually said that out loud.
I’m getting a lot of moan-y, sad-face “What do we do now, Michelle?” e-mails.
What do we do now? We do what we’ve always done.
We stand up for our principles, as we always have — through Democrat administrations and Republican administrations, in bear markets or bull markets, in peacetime and wartime.
We keep the faith.
We do not apologize for our beliefs. We do not re-brand them, re-form them, or relinquish them. We defend them.
Positive. Focused. With the word "stay" in front of it. As if, you know, warning against the temptation to say really bad, nasty, untrue things in these stressful times.
Just follow her example; she councils. And don't re-think failure, don't reconsider positions rejected by the largest plurality of citizens ever, Ghu forbid! No; defend the indefensible, the unthinkable and the outright fucking delusional to the last ditch.
Yep. Stay the course.
Please, Michelle. Adhere to this ONE principle. America needs you to carry on the in the footsteps of Lyndon LaRouche.
And in other news; Republicans wonder if they should rally behind Palin as their new "brand image."
Well, all I can say is that those of you who think that's a good idea, please do go right ahead.
You might also consider changing the name to the "Federalist HotWife Whig Party."
Sadly, No: Barack To The Future II: The Hosening
Stupidest thing ever written by a human is here — but not for long, because they’re already trying to top it.
The "stupidest thing" is an Wall Street Journal op-ed saying that citizens have treated Bush shamefully and thereby emboldened "our enemies." I presume that in this context, "our enemies" includes a plurality of the actual electorate.
But in the running, with stars and clusters for unintentional irony, is one Paige Rodrieguez, commenting on the Bush Was Picked On meme:
Whatever criticisms we may have about Bush's presidency, I predict that Obama's tenure will give us a fuller appreciation of what we had, and painfully aware of what we have now lost.All I can say is - "From your lips to God's Ears." And may your karma have sharp corners.

And from the department of hardcore reality... (via Raw Story)
"Police and the Secret Service are investigating whether a man arrested this afternoon in Rosemont with an assault rifle intended to harm Barack Obama, several sources have told the Chicago Sun-Times," the paper reported....
The man was arrested during a routine traffic stop, according to the paper. Police found a laptop computer opened to a page warning of possible riots if Obama won. The man also had a stun gun, ammunition and hand guns, along with the assault rifle, sources told the paper.
“There’s an individual who we have in custody at this time. There’s no charges as of yet,” a police spokesman told the Sun Times. “As part of the investigation, we’ve gotten the assistance of other law enforcement agencies.”
Obama, who Tuesday night became the first African American elected president, has been targeted in a handful of possible assassination plots, including during the Democratic National Convention in Denver this summer.
"The Obama campaign was provided with reports from the Secret Service showing a sharp and disturbing increase in threats to Obama in September and early October, at the same time that many crowds at Palin rallies became more frenzied," the magazine reports in a special post-election edition. "Michelle Obama was shaken by the vituperative crowds and the hot rhetoric from the GOP candidates. 'Why would they try to make people hate us?' Michelle asked a top campaign aide."Michelle, you are a liberal democrat and a black female, so I assume that was an rhetorical question, but the reason, bluntly, is they want to excite some dispensable idiot to the point where he kills you, your husband, your children, your puppies and any hope left for civilization in the howling wilds between the Canadian and Mexican borders. That's why.
As for the more difficult question as to why anyone would think that was an appropriate thing to do - I refer you to your preacher, and suggest you ask them why people choose to do evil things.
For myself, I see no reason to try and understand why anyone would do such a thing. I think it response enough to hold them accountable for the consequences. This entry is my small effort toward that end; sadly inadequate in itself, but perhaps as a pebble in an avalanche of outrage, it may do it's part to bury such evil under a new and higher ground.
