AnonymASS Tipster of the Week

We recently featured conservative commentator and bestselling author Michelle Malkin on the site. We regularly highlight how she handles her hate mail. We also recently covered her thoughts on Fox & Friends regarding lefty radio host Bill Press declaring his dislike of the Star-Spangled Banner.

Betsy,

Are you serious, or are you talking out of your butt here?  Have you ever actually LISTENED to Michelle Malkin?  Yes, she’s perky, attractive (why would anyone attack her looks??), and articulate, but she’s also in desperate need of  20 additional IQ points.  Malkin is on the same plane as Sarah Palin and Adam West.  If it’s an intelligent conservative woman you seek, try Bay Buchanan.

Dear AnonymASS: I try as much as possible to not talk out of my butt. Thanks for writing and for your indefatigable eloquence.

See a previous letter written to FBDC by this same author back in March after Andrew Breitbart died and I wrote a farewell piece on him. And to answer the author’s question, yes, I took exactly one philosophy class in college.

“Not to nitpick, but you seem to have way too much respect for ‘success.’  Personally, I found Breitbart (compared to others) fairly tolerable, so his political posture isn’t the source of my gripe.  It’s your logic that flabbergasts me.  We’re supposed to respect Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, et al, because they’re successful—because they’ve attracted a loyal following and are making a lot of money?  Did you NOT take even one philosophy class in college???”
