Stupid is as Stupid Does

I'd try to cry crocodile tears for Michelle Malkin, but on the internets no one can see you pretend to cry.

However, while she is no doubt getting a taste of her own, stupidly prescribed medicine, enough is enough. IF she and Jesse were forced to move because their address was published (and sorry because of her track record of being overwrought and mendacious I'm not sure if she is making the whole thing up) then this is a classic case of two wrongs do not make a right. As an anonymous person on the internets I am not big on exposure. Anonymity gives you the freedom to do things you would never do if you were known, it is liberating (it can also be a license for doing the wrong thing too of course -- with no power comes no responsibility right Uncle Ben?). I would never be as snarky if I were exposed, sorry, but it is good for teh comedy.

Michelle Malkin is not anonymous, of course, but that doesn't mean there is not a degree of privacy associated with her and her family. Especially in that it should apply to her kids who haven't done squat. Her original listing of the private information of protesters was incredibly wrong, there is some justice to her exposure -- but that doesn't make it "just".

Okay, there endeth the moral posturing and here beginnith the snark.

Perhaps Michelle and Jesse can move here?
