Michelle, just admit it
YOU ARE VISITING THE OLD MALKIN(S)WATCH. THAT'S FANTASTIC. PLEASE VISIT THE NEW MALKIN(S)WATCH WHEN YOU GET A CHANCE. Professor Muller over at isthatlegal? has a post up about his radio "debate" with Malkin. I say "debate" because she basically monopolized the microphone, but Muller got in one really good point:
[W]ould she at least have the decency to repudiate the call of US News and World Report columnist John Leo for a renewed debate about internment? After all, Ms. Malkin has maintained over and over again that she does not favor mass detentions of Arab and Muslim Americans, even while peddling a book called "In Defense of Internment." Leo read her book and, on the basis of the book's arguments, called for an "honest debate" about "present internments."
Surprise, surprise. She would not repudiate Leo's call for internment. Instead she equivocated, saying that she didn't know what sort of internment Leo was referring to. He might have been referring to the indefinite detention of enemy combatants, she said, or he might have been referring to the detention immediately after 9/11/2001 of hundreds of Arab aliens. And those, she said, were and are good policy.
