You Don't Even Know What An American Serviceman LOOKS Like!
But you say that you support him??!!

Conservo-babe Michelle Malkin catches's latests ad as so much garbage. They claim to show American troops lines up for Thankgiving chow over in Iraq, and then a family back home crying over a serviceman who was killed in Iraq.

Here's the kicker... the Yank "troops" are actually Brits. You'd think someone at even knew what an American Serviceman looked like! Then they have the 'nads to doctor the photo after the fact.

*shaking my head in disgust* ..... sheesh, liberals.

Conservo-babe, I like that, a well coined phrase!

Before declaring Miss (?) Malkin "Conservative" (By whose standards? Does she have a husband? What does he do?), I would like to see where she stands on such issues as the Faith, Abortion, Gun Control and Immigration, to name a few.

I'm inclined to think she's probably part of the problem. Afterall, if we're Catholic, then why do we need to be lectured by a female?

Miss Malkin, go home and clean something.

Keep the Faith,

She's exposed (yet again) how phoney such oranizations as are. Let's not confuse exposing with lecturing.

If you'd like to know where she stands on certain topics, feel free to research them and post the findings on your blog.

In the meantime, I know what I've found. Yet another rabidly anti-american, ultra-liberal organization has been shown to be the phonies they are.

That makes her "part of the solution" in my book.

Good job cleaning house, Michelle!

Disgusting. Apparently they knew enough to know American servicemen don't show that much leg. But, I can only hope gaufridus is kidding. I know a woman or two whose lecturing I desperately need.

Salve, Regina, mater misericordiae: vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve.

I'll take a lecture from the Mother of God any day. Last time I checked, Miss Malkin is not she.

I don't recall ref'ing to Malkin as The Mother of God.... and Malkin still wasn't lecturing, but exposing

I think he was responding to me there, Non. And I'm not saying Ms. Malkin is any such thing, but women have a wisdom all their own that we can't afford to ignore. And the measure of that wisdom is the Blessed Mother's example.

As for the lecturing/exposing thing, Chesterton observed in "What's Wrong with the World?", that men need not agree on what is good, to agree on much of what is bad.

Points well taken, Franklin

You are right; I was responding to you.

Here's the thing: _Miss_ ("Ms." is a feminist [i.e. anti-Catholic] construct designed to hide and de-emphasise the marital status of women) Malkin might actually be 100% right about what she reported. I dont know. It's not really important.

What is important is her Faith and what she exemplifies. Is she Catholic? My guess is "No". (I admit I might be wrong about my guess.)

Why do I guess "No"? It has to do with my second point/question: What does she exemplify? What is the model of Catholic womanhood? As you pointed out, the Mother of God.

Does/did the Mother of God make her living "exposing phony organizations"? No. She subordinated herself to the will of God, bore the Son of God, remained a faithful wife and devoted mother to her Son throughout his earthly life and beyond.

So, appealing to a woman of dubious religious standing, in my opinion, kicks a pro-traditional Catholic stance squarely in the groin. Why not quote Martin Luther King, Jr.? Or Ghandi? Why make a big deal about ordaining female priests?

I'm watching Fox right now. (I have no choice; it's piped in.) They style themselves, as you probably know, as "Conservatives". Yet, Bill O'Reilley is interviewing Anne Coulter in a sympathetic and postive manner.

It's the same sort of self-contradictory phenomenon. What sort of "Conservatism" is he espousing by defending an outspoken female "Conservative"? It's rather similar to calling oneself a pro-homosexual, Catholic Communist: it's logically impossible.

It's a lot like the politically-correct phrase "Servicemen *and women*".

No. Right is right and wrong is wrong. If Miss Malkin wants to really do some good, she needs to espouse Catholic principles, marry, and be a good wife and mother. If she cant do that, maybe she ought to join a convent.

In order to be effective, in my experience, you must be consistent.

Dominus tecum
