Democracy at Work
 
Obama signs S-CHIP legislation.

I was ambivalent about Obama among the possibilities in the Democratic field. This is a pretty good validation of the Democratic process, in my opinion. Go Obama!

And, may I say: FU Michelle Malkin. (No link.)

Good policy.

Whenever I hear her name, I can never decide which title is more appropriate, Unhinged or In Defense of Internment.

Oh, and woo-hoo! to the S-CHIP news. Thanks for passing it along.

[Added] Hee hee! Really weak sauce from Malkkkin: won't someone think of the poor people who are going to be hurt by this bill because tobacco taxes are going to go up?

[Added] Apparently, Republicans who voted for S-CHIp are now to be referred to as "Trojan Horse Republicans" (because they let a tax increase sneak in). The Freepers and other loyal parrots are already chirping it.

Unhinged is just typical Regnery stupidity, like Liberal Fascism. In Defense... was odious, and pardon me, indefensible.

(I get your point - just saying...)

Yeah, just a joke.

In other news, feast your eyes on Malkkkin's mad Photoshopping skillz:

I never thought I'd see anyone worse than Perez Hilton, but I think she wins this crown, too.

Yeah - generations of specialists will be required to interpret her fiendishly subtle semiotics. Jeeze. And the fact is, I don't think she's stupid. I do think it tells us a lot about what she thinks of her target audience.

Heh.

I'll give her credit for not being Joe-the-Plumber stupid. Her ability to twist anything and everything into a source of outrage shows some mental agility.

By the same token, though, I cannot think of anyone as zealous as she is as all that bright. Or maybe she is, but if so, then the only other explanation is that she's insane.

I don't get the same sense from her as I do from, say, Coulter, about exaggerating her beliefs to play to a target audience. There's no way anyone could churn out that much bile every day as she does on her blog just to keep up an act. And no one could make up the Dunkin' Donuts scarf jihad -- that takes a True Believer.
