This is priceless. A commenter at Huff Post, MSheppard, sent me to the definition of a "malkin" in the dictionary.

mal·kin
[maw-kin, mawl-, mal-] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–noun British Dialect.

1. an untidy woman; slattern.
2. a scarecrow, ragged puppet, or grotesque effigy.
3. a mop, esp. one made from a bundle of rags and used to clean out a baker's oven.
4. a cat.
5. a hare.


Somewhere in the world, after reading this, a hare is weeping.

I love it!!!! I especially like the definition, "A ragged puppet, or grotesque effigy". After all, she IS a puppet for Bush and his gang.

Too funny! You're right, however, she gives the hare's and cats of the world a bad name. Poor hare's.

I said it before, and I meant it.
The government should contract MM for torture- she has to be the #1 most annoying person in the world. I saw bits of her "girl chat" on cspan with Ingraham, O'Beirne etc.
What a horrid, grating, self-hating woman.

I checked out Cliff's name on the dictionary as well:

"No results found for schecter."

lame! We need to work on making Schecter synonymous with bulldog in the public discourse. or perhaps with bulldozer or steamroller...

'I am a fucking Cliff Schecter and I'll schecter over you or anybody else,' - Elliot Spitzer

'Kerry just got torn apart. He got schectered out there. SCHECTERED. HA. HA.' - Chris Matthews

Great idea! I can hear Bill O'Reilly now...

O'Reilly interviewing Al Frankin:

"Don't you come on my show and try and schecter me! You moron! You idiot! I'll schecter you! How would you like me to come on YOUR show and start schectering you? "

Hey, jambon, isn't there a way to do that through google? Google bombs or something? Do you remember what some people did with Santorum? When you googled his name you got "Satirical attempt to name the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes
the byproduct of anal sex after Senator Rick Santorum."

We could do it with Cliff - just not gross and evil and all...

gimmeabreak, it seems that google has just recently adjusted their algorithm to stop googlebombing. check it out:

Mary Ellen, that would be GREAT if O'Reilly of all people used it. And Colbert could use "Schecter" as "todays word".

I can only take all of this as the compliment it is. If Schecter can be synonymous with kicking GOP ass, well then I will have achieved enough in life to retire.

But don't worry I won't. This is too much fun.

BTW I think I am getting a bit more aggressive in my writing, because I have been unable to do tv lately.

It is my catharsis, beating on them on tv. It lowers my blood pressure and makes me regular (ok, too much info, I know)

MSNBC has called three times in the past two weeks, all when I was taking care of my son. Hopefully, for my sanity, I'll get on soon.

If you want to get O'Reilly's attention, you just e-mail a few letters to him and keep putting in the term, "you've been schectered!" The idiot will get real curious and might bring it up on one of his shows. I can hear him complaining now about how the "lefties" are calling him names.

One time, he was bombarded with letters from a group of French expats when he was making derogatory remarks about the French when Chiraq wouldn't get involved in the Iraq war. O'Reilly's team actually called one of the guys and asked if he would come on the show. Well, he said yes and tried to set up the date. But, I think O'Reilly actually checked out the website that this guy was on and realized, the expat was pretty smart and could make O'Reilly look like a fool....O'Reilly backed out. Coward.

Thanks for reminding me mary ellen....if MSNBC can't work, Fox could be a hoot..let me see what I can do...

OMG! That is just too funny! I just have to pass this on. Thanks so much for the laugh Cliff.

No problem Donnie. Please come back and visit us. We like people who enjoy ripping into Malkin here...

Your post on Huffington re:the righties vs. Amanda Marcotte was spot on. Thanks!

I'm MSheppard. Glad I could be of help, Cliff. I am a great admirer of your fighting spirit.

Of course, in reminding people of the definition of malkin, and connecting that with the unhinged blogger of the same name, no disrespect was intended towards either cats or slatterns.

P.S. I got more.

Michelle Malkin is the worst of the worst. When I lived in Honolulu in 2000 she was writing for a local paper. I wrote a letter to her editor regarding her absolutely vindictive writing. I do not know where she came from with her opinions, but she needs to go back!
