Malkin calling the kettle black
The prime Cindy Sheehan smear has focused on the supposed "flip-flop" that took place between Sheehan's summary of a meeting she had with Bush at the time versus more recent reports of the incident.
Even if this charge weren't mostly the result of disingenuous cherry-picking of quotes to emphasize any differences in her feelings PEOPLE CHANGE THEIR MINDS.
And speaking of changing their minds, DCMedia Girl notes that Sheehan-smearer and all-purpose sleazeball Michelle Malkin didn't always think that the race-based internment of the Japanese was such a hot idea. DC writes: "it turns out she was AGAINST internment before she was FOR it. Keyboard Kommandos, attack! It turns out the right wingÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new favorite Heather is a big olÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ flip-flopper!"
From a 2000 Malkin column:
"The government has apologized and provided cash compensation to victims who were forced into camps. There is no denying that what happened to Japanese-American internees was abhorrent and wrong."
"IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be waiting for Drudge, OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Reilly and Limbaugh to point out this inconsistency, then start going through her legal and financial records to prove some other irrelevant, allegedly 'incriminating' point; after all, shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t Fox 'News' contributors and celebrity wingnuts be held to the same standard they apply to a private citizen whose son died in Iraq?"
