Michelle Malkin: Slate? Salon? Whatever.

malkin061208 Michelle Malkin: Slate? Salon? Whatever.Yesterday on Fox News—America’s Election HQ!—Megyn Kelly interviewed Fox News contributor and New Yorker profile rejecter Michelle Malkin about potential First Lady Michelle Obama. During the course of her echo chamber-like criticism of Ms. Obama (that’s not a metaphor: someone should’ve checked Ms. Malkin’s mic before putting her on air), Ms. Malkin said, "it’s not just Republicans who are criticizing some of her comments, but also statements have been made in the left-leaning blog Salon about her comments."

That darn Salon!

Malkin responded to my e-mail; she says she misspoke and that she meant to refer to Slate, not Salon.

Let’s call it the narcissism of minor differences.
