Venting needed...rant ahead

Its never enough for Michelle Malkin. I read her everday to my own detriment and she is by the far the biggest whiner on the internet. It is NEVER enough. She demands apologies, she recieves them, they are never enough for her. She then demands apologies from parties that had nothing to do with things. She is a complete and utter hypocrite and a worthless addition to punditry. She has nothing original to say and prides herself on the latest 'coining' of a scandal.

Earlier this week, it was this:

After readers informed the clueless Messner that Krauthammer has been a paraplegic since 1972, Messner substituted Krauthammer's name with George Will's. Messner added a footnote:

"My sincerest apologies for the Krauthammer touchdown dance remark. It was unintentionally insensitive -- I had no idea he was disabled."

On the one hand, as Mark at Marked Up
points out, it is a good thing that Messner "had no idea" about Krauthammer's physical condition. On the other hand, she's a Washington Post politics writer, for God's sake.
And imagine the uproar if a conservative writer had made the touchdown remark about Max Cleland or the late Christopher Reeve...

Yes, imagine the uproar. Michelle, you were pretty upset when they accused Max Cleland of being a traitor and causing his own injuries in Vietnam weren't you? I mean, as long as you are sticking up for the disabled and all. Once again, the apology doesn't satisy Michelle, the keeper of integrity within the MSM.

Today its this highlighting of the Steve Gilliard debacle here:

Will top Democrats apologize for the vicious "Sambo" smear leveled at GOP Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, who is running for Senate in my home state of Maryland?
The New York Post's Deborah Orin reports today that Steele is seeking an apology from Sen. Chuck Schumer, head of the DSCC, for the racist slam by a liberal blogger who doctored a photo of Steele with minstrel makeup.

I commented as well on the 'simple sambo' post by Gilliard. Someone tell me again what the hell it has to do with Chuck Schumer. Top Democrats should apologize for what a lefty blogger does on his website? If that were the way things were run, Republicans and Democrats would be apologizing all day for blogs. As Michelle likes to put it: GIVE. ME. A. BREAK.

Michelle also demanded an apology from him regarding the theft of his personal information by some of his staffers, who promptly resigned. At least that time it had something to do with him.

Michelle, here's a free bit of advice. Get over yourself.

You know why a conservative commentatot would not have made the comment about Cleland or Reeve? Because we would have paid attention. Krauthammer has been in a wheelchair for 30 years.

His story is widely known.

As for Cleland causing his own injuries; that is true. He was not in combat, but picked up a live grenade. Still tragic, yet the truth.

The scumbag who called Steele a "Sambo" has nothing to do with Shumer. The members of his party who furthered the smear are members of his own party and for that, he, or some other Dem leader should at least speak out against it.

K., You've heard the story about the man who kept hitting his own thumb with a hammer, "because it felt so good when he stopped" ? Maybe Michelle is your hammer.
I visit often, love your posts.

You are a much, much stronger woman than I to read Malkin daily.
