Malkin Gets Stepped On By Stephanopoulos and Co.

Malkin is forced to wear tinfoil dunce-cap on television.

Malkin is forced to wear tinfoil dunce-cap on television.

We just love it when right wing pundits appear on serious news programs and make fools of themselves. It always seems to happen the same way. In the midst of a serious policy discussion amongst learned individuals, the right wing pundit will simply parrot a misplaced Republican talking point that Rush Limbaugh or some similar imbecile has instructed them to repeat ad nauseam. At that point the rest of the panel usually pauses, stares at the right wing fool for a few seconds and then continues their conversation as if the offending pundit had said nothing at all. It reminds you of those family get togethers when you are discussing what should be done about Uncle Charley’s failing health, and one of the little children wanders into the room and says, “Look at me, I’m a flying dinosaur.” The usual response being, “That’s nice honey, now run along now because adults are talking here.”

Sometimes, however, the right wing pundit says something so stupid that it cannot be simply ignored. The bad behavior must, in a sense, be punished. This is what happened to Michelle Malkin this weekend on This Week  With George Stephanopoulos. During a discussion about the economy and the effect of different measures on the recession, Malkin theorized that unemployment benefits and extensions thereto are bad for the economy because people would rather collect their “government cheese” than be employed. Her point being, that if we do not give the jobless any unemployment benefits, they will simply get jobs and return to work. i guess she did not understand that there are no jobs to go back to. The rest of the roundtable (including Stephanopoulos) slapped her down immediately for her ignorance. The whole conversation can be viewed at crooksandliars.com here.

MICHELLE

(Sung to The Beatles song “Michelle”)

Michelle, from Hell
These are words that go together well,
Weird Michelle.

Michelle, do tell,
Do you even possess one brain cell
One tiny cell?

Just shut up, just shut up, just shut up
You have nothing to say
Would you just go away
And crawl back under that rock from whence you
Ca-ame yesterday.

Michelle, Oh well,
You’ve been put under a right-wing spell
A sure death knell

On Fox News, on Fox News, on Fox News
That’s where you’ll always be
Republican TV
With Hannity and O’Reilly
And Coulter, the queen

We mock you…

We want you, we want you, we want you,
To leave the air-waves now
And lose your job somehow
Until you do we’re telling you so
You’ll understand.

Michelle, farewell
Take with you that foul sulfuric smell
Sulfuric smell.

We will say the only words we know that
You’ll understand, “Go to Hell.”
