—– What she said: The Rev. Al Sharpton is threatening to “close down the city” of New York in outrage over last week’s acquittals of three NYPD officers in the shooting death of Sean Bell. The race-hustling Sharpton is doing what he does best, accusing the NYPD and the court system of racism – ignoring the fact that the officer who fired the first shot of the near 50 shots taken that day was black. Malkin goes on a verbal smackdown spree here, going off on everyone from Sharpton to everyone who has ever propped him up including, sadly, some Republicans – even President Bush.

This is usually the point where Liberals/progressives truly understand how bad the issue really is for them, typically when even the NY Times cannot ignore it….”
—– And yet another one of my fellow NC bloggers (they’re always on a roll), Bob Owens, takes on a Media Matters scribe who posted a bogus attack on me and a few other “warbloggers” regarding the release of the AP’s terrorist-friendly “photojournalist” Bilal Hussein under Iraq’s new amnesty law.
