Michelle Malkin, superpatriot, is a person who in her spare time enjoys modelling T-shirts from a company that also produces outerwear that declares: "Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some Assembly Required." Hilarious. So you see where she's coming from. (P.S., this chuckle-inducing message to slay journalists has been kicking around for awhile. My earlier thoughts here.)
Now comes the hideous news of the beheading of a correspondent for Al-Arabiya, an Arab news network.
She describes the act as "Insanely evil." I agree.
But what I don't understand is why Ms. Malkin, a person who seems OK with a company that advocates the gruesome execution of journalists, would now become upset when a journalist is, well, gruesomely executed. Perhaps she is simply upset with the methods. As far as I can tell, no ropes nor any trees were involved.
