Douchebag of the Week: Michelle Malkin

Once I found out she was actually going appear on This Week with George Stephanopolous, I knew it was a short matter of time before she would say something asinine.

Malkin thinks extending unemployment benefits of $300 per week extends joblessness because people would rather sit around and collect that easy money than look for a job and then just before the benefits expire, run right out and get a job in an environment where the national unemployment rate is teetering at 10% and some state numbers are as high as 15%-20%. Great job, Malkin.

Malkin: If you put enough government cheese in front of people they are just going to keep eating it and you're just kicking the can down the road and just to hammer this point about the unemployment benefits extension again it was Larry Katz, who's a chief labor economist under the Clinton labor department who came out with a study and there are a lot of these economists who say this that if you keep extending these "temporary" unemployment benefits you're just going to extend joblessness even more.

Something about Malkin just screams "borderline personality." She really, really disturbs me.

This is why I no longer watch the sunday talk shows.They lose all credibility when they put this stupid twit on to have a serious discussion on the issues.Would Ted Koppel or any respectful journalist ever remotely consider turning their shows into the WWE?I"ve lost count how many times Walter Cronkite and Edward R Murrow have been spinning in their graves.

Oh, she deserves lifetime douchebag status. She is completely unhinged.

And yes, NowhereMan, this is the same point I've been making: the so-called mainstream news is an utter joke. Journalism in this country died a long time ago, but its stinking corpse is still around.
