Michelle Malkin Is On F'n' Fire

Lots of good stuff today, but the funniest is her rip on the MSM and its favorite word to describe Republicans who care what the NYT thinks about them.

The word, of course, is "maverick," and she wants to know-- if there are so many "mavericks" by the MSM's lights, how can they be mavericks?

Kind of like that episode of Laverne & Shirley when Lenny wanted to start a gang called "The Lone Wolves." (Think about it, retards.)

"Maverick" is in the eye of the beholder, of course. Everyone wants to be a maverick. But just as goth-geeks aren't really all that "different" -- they act and dress and talk like all their goth-geek friends, after all -- neither are MSM-deemed "mavericks" all that "maverick."

Okay-- so they buck the Republican Party line. They are, however, lemmings when it comes to the liberal MSM line, aren't they?

The Mainstream Media

Either do what we want or we'll talk smack about you.

I, myself, had a brief couple of days of liberal MSM maverick-love. I slammed Ted Stevens -- a Republican -- for suggesting that we regulate cable as we do broadcast media, and suddenly I was being mentioned on MSNBC and even in the archliberal CJR.

It seems all I had to do to make myself interesting, thoughful, and quotable was to bad-mouth a Republican.

Funny how that works.
