Michelle Malkin takes on the cackling hens of "The View".
Michelle Malkin is one of the best known conservative writers in the nation. I've always been a fan of her work. Michelle was on the ABC show "The View" yesterday to promote her new book "The Culture of Corruption". Her appearance was great, but I question Michelle's reasoning for doing the show. The pew is an overwhelmingly liberal hag fest with the sole exception of Elizabeth Hasselbeck. Frankly I don't know how Elizabeth can stand being on that show. Elizabeth Hasselbeck is the only redeeming quality of "The View". She must be getting paid some good money. Most conservative books tend to do well, even though the media rarely covers them. Mark Levin's book "Tyranny and Liberty" has been number one on the New York Time's best seller list for three months now. No liberal media outlets have yet to even request an interview with him. Michelle didn't need to go on show in order to promote her book. I believe Michelle did really well against the hens on the show though. Michelle has always struck me as a very energetic and knowledgeable woman. During her segment on the show, I noticed that Joy Behar tried to use the Chris Mathews strategy against her.
The strategy that Chris used against Michelle when he had her on his show was to talk over Michelle in an effort to give an appearance that she didn't know what she was talking about, and he was was so smart. In essence, he controlled the debate. Joy tried to do the same thing almost from the start of the segment. Michelle handled her pretty well, because she didn't go on the defensive like she did with Mathews. This time she went on the offensive instead. One of the best moments in the segment was when Michelle asked Joy "did she read the book". That was the point in which she gained a superior position over Behar,because Joy and the rest clearly didn't read the book. During the entire exchange, nothing within the context of Michelle's book was criticized by Joy, Whoopi, Barbara or Sherri.
That was a clear sign none of them read the book. All they could do was bring up the name of George Bush in almost every other sentence they uttered.. I have no doubt Michelle's book is going to do great. Maybe she even helped a few liberal hens see the light in the process. One could always hope.
