Michelle Malkin's new book is a kick in the a--, er donkey!

Michelle Malkin, a.k.a., "a know-nothing, empty-headed pseudo-intellectual who gets aroused by the smell of totalitarianism," according to one of her politer critics, has just produced one funny yet poignant book: Unhinged: Exposing Liberals Gone Wild.

She did make at least one serious error, namely not dedicating the book to me. Actually she made another, not stringing up by the heels Molly Ivins. Ivins is the "index case" of the anti-Bush pathology, a virus that eats away at the victim's brain until he finds he wants his country to lose in Iraq and turn the country over to al Queda just to make George W. look bad. But perhaps Malkin is setting us up for a sequel. (Dedicated to me.)

The best part about Unhinged is that aside from some snort-inducing quips (Don't read this while drinking carbonated beverages) she lets her victims tie their own nooses and kick over their own chairs. It is often unbelievable what these people say in public (Michelle doesn't often resort to wire taps), some of whom are widely accepted as being a tad bit saner than the usual suspects like Howard ("YEARGGHHHH!") Dean or Prof. Ward Churchill. Thus she quotes Walter Cronkite, "the most trusted man in America," on CNN's Larry King that the surprise bin Laden tape that surfaced just before the presidential election: "I'm a little inclined to think that Karl Rove . . . who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing."


No wonder "Cronkite" is German ("Krankheit") for disease. But there are countless other unhinged and disease individuals stripped and mocked in this book. Get a copy now or Osama (via my buddy Karl) will declare jihad on your Thanksgiving turkey.
