Dissing Hot Air

posted at 8:55 pm on April 25, 2006 by Michelle

From the left-wing Phillyburbs.com blog:

Crazy rightwing nutjob Michelle Malkin has started a video site for conservatives called Hot Air. I really can’t imagine a more fitting name for the site.

Snort, snort, snort! This is the best they can do: lamely make fun of us for making fun of ourselves.

Liberals have to be the least self-deprecating people on the planet.

I can’t wait for iberals to see my “Hot Air” bumper sticker as I drive my car throughout the Philadelphia.

Then I’ll stroll around center city proudly wearing my brand new “Hot Air” Ball Cap.

I do not intend to go unnoticed….

HOT AIR ROCKS!!

Richard Davis on April 25, 2006 at 9:07 PM

Modern-day lefties are like trained monkeys, albeit much less entertaining.

MisterPundit on April 25, 2006 at 9:15 PM

Old bomber pilot saying: When you start taking flak, you know you’re approaching the target (or something like that).

flipflop on April 25, 2006 at 9:17 PM

When unable to run with the big dogs, Phillyburbs.com is forced to remain transfixed upon the dark brown ring of the frontrunners. It ain’t a great view!

Grouper on April 25, 2006 at 9:23 PM

Rightwing nutjob?

My father-in-law calls me that.

JammieWearingFool on April 25, 2006 at 9:27 PM

As I write this from a Philly suburb, let me reassure you….we’re not all bad!

World B. Free on April 25, 2006 at 9:34 PM

Well, they can’t accuse us of being frigid.

Whoops. I made a pun.

Kokonut on April 25, 2006 at 9:35 PM

All the left can do is throw out insults because they have no plan and/or good arguments to make.

Rick on April 25, 2006 at 9:36 PM

better than being a leftwing boobjob, I guess

Travis on April 25, 2006 at 9:38 PM

Wonderin when they’d catch note

Kosst Amojan on April 25, 2006 at 9:44 PM

They’re just upset about the Flygirls.

Yes, yes, any time a Devils fan can make a dig at the Flyers, we’ll take it!!!!

William Teach on April 25, 2006 at 9:53 PM

Next, they will be demanding where is the balance here?

Anytime a lefty starts whining and crying, you know you forcing them to rearrange their tinfoil hats. Better that than to think, for a change.

LewWaters on April 25, 2006 at 9:55 PM

I was one of the people that emailed the nutcases that were harresing malkin over at USCSC, and I was not nice at all called them every name in the book. I was hooping to get some hate mail, I got one email back, I called him a pinko and Godless, I also gave him a lecture on the 2nd Admendment. Do you know what the jackass did, he corrected a typo from God less to Godless. They know what they are all about.

birdman on April 25, 2006 at 10:04 PM

Phillyburp has a problem with right wing nut jobs, but not West Wing Blow Jobs. How very typical.

pistolero on April 25, 2006 at 10:36 PM

A person is always judged by the numbers and qualities of his enemies. Good show Michelle

Tatsuka on April 25, 2006 at 10:39 PM

Just emailed phillybs and told them I would like to be sent some hate email like Malkin received so I could post on Hotair

birdman on April 25, 2006 at 10:58 PM

Who cares what they think? Just get ‘em, Michelle.

dman on April 25, 2006 at 10:59 PM

Seems to me as though they’re running scared and throwing insults over their shoulders. Excellent work, Michelle!

S_que on April 25, 2006 at 11:16 PM

When lefties starts to make noise, you just know you are doing your job right

defender on April 25, 2006 at 11:19 PM

Wow… the liberal think tank has finally came up with a response to Hot Air.

Crazy – Rightwing – Nutjob.

It took them 24 hours for that intelligent synopsis?

I can analyze their response too….

Bitter – Leftwing – Envy

Keep up the good work Michelle! Looking forward to the next Vent Update!

KingKidX on April 25, 2006 at 11:46 PM

humorless

morph on April 25, 2006 at 11:54 PM

Come on people how bot some email for phillyburger.

birdman on April 25, 2006 at 11:59 PM

I am a native of the Socialist Republic of Philadelphia; William Penn would probably be considered a crazy rightwing nutjob in this gulag. Love ya, Michelle!

PoppysBoy on April 26, 2006 at 12:03 AM

Gotta love those liberals. Yeah, right.

vabirish on April 26, 2006 at 12:22 AM

Well, clearly Hot Air is not a threat to the ‘bats. That’s why they felt the need to devote any space to its grand debut. That type of ankle-biting always convinces the rest of us.

[/sarcasm]

Keep up the great work!

Fly_in_Ointment on April 26, 2006 at 12:32 AM

Well “Air Amerika” looks like it’s losing a lot of air. Maybe they shoulda tried HOT AIR! ;-)

R D on April 26, 2006 at 12:41 AM

Gee. At least the left used to be more entertaining then this. At least to me, that was their sole purpose for existance. For me to laugh at them. Now they are SO predictable to not even be worth a first look, let alone a second. Where will i get my humor fix now?

chow on April 26, 2006 at 12:48 AM

“Crazy rightwing nutjob Michelle Malkin has started a video site for conservatives called Hot Air. I really can’t imagine a more fitting name for the site.”

I happen to Love that “crazy rightwing nutjob” and am happy to be able to post my opinions on her site.

R D on April 26, 2006 at 12:52 AM

The libs are always reluctant to give credit to conservatives for always being more savvy with technology and better at using humor and satire. Libs will always have the advantage with the whine monopoly.

Yiddish Steel on April 26, 2006 at 12:56 AM

Birdman – it’s harassing – not harresing and it’s hoping – not hooping

Zeus on April 26, 2006 at 1:05 AM

LOL

Zeus on April 26, 2006 at 1:05 AM

Character assasination is an old favorite of the liberal elite.

Tom Shakely on April 26, 2006 at 1:06 AM

So shot me typo.

birdman on April 26, 2006 at 1:12 AM

Philly chesesteak just like any other bat site no substance just childish nonsence. Sorry for all the typos very tired.

birdman on April 26, 2006 at 1:20 AM

Phillyburbs’ elevator did not reach the penthouse or did it even leave the ground floor? What a juvenile! Still stuck in the 60′s with its unfulfilled musings of hippie communes, for saving water by not bathing for a month, and sticking it to the man in Gillette for not using blades to shave pits, nose, and ears for a year. No different than these Islamic barbarians who are still stuck in the 2nd century. Hello! The world has moved on. Hot Air is leading the way. Atta girl, Michelle!

TrueKatipunero on April 26, 2006 at 1:33 AM

Heck, this site is better than anything Dead-Air America puts out; that’ll get a bunch of liberal knickers twisted any day of the week. (And to think XM has a whole channel devoted to them and their twitterings…waste of valuable satellite bandwidth, if you ask me. Who do I lobby for a Michelle Malkin/Hot Air show on America Right?)

Erbo on April 26, 2006 at 1:34 AM

“I really can’t imagine a more fitting name for the site.”

It only took one day! I knew it, knew it, knew it! Success is guaranteed.

hadsil on April 26, 2006 at 1:47 AM

birdman – you’re being too sensitive – i was just kidding

Zeus on April 26, 2006 at 2:12 AM

I’m making a lot of mistakes tonight careless, how you doing Zeus, I should go to bed but I really like this site, great fun

birdman on April 26, 2006 at 2:27 AM

1. You don’t agree with someone’s politics and that makes them a “crazy rightwing nutjob”. Nice. It seems all we can do nowadays is call names and make fun of people. I suppose rational debate is out of the question. Not very open minded or “progressive” of you.
Comment by Mark — 4.25.2006 @ 9:13 pm

2. I have read the hate mail Malkin received from the so called tolerant liberals, bigoted, full of hate, with filth coming out of there mouths. You will not shut her up. P.S. Please send me some hate mail so I can post it on HotAir.com
Comment by Leonard Michals — 4.25.2006 @ 9:29 pm

I was one of the people that emailed the nutcases that were harresing malkin over at USCSC, and I was not nice at all called them every name in the book. I was hooping to get some hate mail, I got one email back, I called him a pinko and Godless, I also gave him a lecture on the 2nd Admendment. Do you know what the jackass did, he corrected a typo from God less to Godless. They know what they are all about. birdman on April 25, 2006 at 10:04 PM

1. Mark – I agree with you – there is too much name-calling from both sides. I’m willing to have a rational conversation anytime.

2. Leonard – I read some of the e-mails that Michelle received. They were truly disgusting. I’ve seen such comments directed at both sides. You can blame this on liberals (which I think you you have your mind set on), you can blame it on those that would set up liberals (which I’m sure you won’t), or you can blame it on those that would do it just because. But you can’t blame it on tolerant liberals.

3. birdman – Enough said!

Zeus on April 26, 2006 at 2:37 AM

You are right Zeus you can’t blame tolerant liberals but the tolerant liberals have lost controll of there party to kooks. Have you ever gone Zombietime.com people dressed as sucide bombers, signs like “distroy Zionism”, “spport the troops that kill thier officers”, “support the insurgants”,etc its very shocking. It only makes our enemy stronger, and gets people killed.

birdman on April 26, 2006 at 3:04 AM

Screw ‘em. “Progressives” have got to be the whiniest bunch I have ever seen. Their arguments never have anything substantive, only childish insults and hairsplitting.

Yawn.

violet on April 26, 2006 at 5:29 AM

William, Flyers fan. I can’t imagine a liberal being a Flyers fan, cheering for the Broadstreet Bullies. That’d be like a conservative with a Barbie collection!

Tony737 on April 26, 2006 at 5:37 AM

Michelle,

You know you’ve made great impact when the moonbats get hysterical over it… you should be ashamed of yourself for getting them so upset. They’re very sensitive you know, and the truth really hurts their self esteem. /s

You are the best !

Bob

Bob Mileti on April 26, 2006 at 5:38 AM

Two Things:

1) Having a rational conversation with a lib – isn’t that an oxymoron (rational Lib)

2)Why would anyone read a lib blog you get the same thing from the alphabet networks (abccbsnbscnn)

Wil on April 26, 2006 at 6:37 AM

Oops forgot one thing.

Progressive – some racing to the future looking in the rearview mirror.

Wil on April 26, 2006 at 6:38 AM

Crazy rightwing nutjobs of the world unite! (And watch the Moonbats go batty!!!)

persecutor on April 26, 2006 at 7:02 AM

Proud to be counted among the right wing conspirators. Let’s roll!

armorman on April 26, 2006 at 7:10 AM

Well, at least they didn’t curse this time – one thing I hate is misspelled profanity

EricPWJohnson on April 26, 2006 at 7:13 AM

Tony:

I am always surprised at the attendence figures for the Flyers. I figure that Conservatives are driving in from outside Philly. Thise liberal bed wetter types are horrified by the NHL. They prefer a more cultured sport: soccer. (snicker)

William Teach on April 26, 2006 at 7:47 AM

Sometimes, I imagine looking at the world like a left wing whacko. Supporting Hillary. Being proud of Charles Schumer. Believing the New York Times. Then I wake up from the nightmare.

right as rain man on April 26, 2006 at 7:49 AM

I’m glad Michelle can VENT. Hot Air is great! And I’m thankful I VENT as a Crazy rightwing nutjob can too! LOL!

NavyWife on April 26, 2006 at 8:00 AM

ATTENTION ALL PHILADELPHIANS:

Meet me at Broad and Market on Monday May 1st at noon for a Hot Air rally of support.

I’ll be the guy in the “Crazy Righwing Nutjob” T-Shirt and “Hot Air” ball cap.

“Give me Hot Air or give me gas!”
William Penn

Richard Davis on April 26, 2006 at 8:18 AM

It doesn’t surprise me about the left dissing HotAir. For the most part, no solutions, just name calling.

I am glad that my beloved Buffalo Sabres are humiliating the Flyers.

rightside on April 26, 2006 at 8:23 AM

Jealous….and Envious…. and just plain Not Nice. :)

Freedom of the net, Marxists don’t like it.

tiercel76 on April 26, 2006 at 8:56 AM

William, Flyers fan. I can’t imagine a liberal being a Flyers fan, cheering for the Broadstreet Bullies. That’d be like a conservative with a Barbie collection!

Tony737 on April 26, 2006 at 5:37 AM

HEY! My wife has a Barbie collection and is a conservative! Of course, I want to sell them on ebay.

Travis on April 26, 2006 at 9:06 AM

Crazy like a fox.

In all senses of the word.

pratthobbies on April 26, 2006 at 9:15 AM

Well I guess the best thing I can say about this site, along with others that the Phillyburg would classify as being hosted by “crazy, rightwing nutjobs” is I can view the site at work but most of those “enlightened, truth telling, leftwing” sites are not permitted through our web screening program because of the hate filled, profanity laced content contained on them.
So given a choice of visiting a site filled with reasoned discussions or one which simply throws around personal insults I take “Hot Air” any day.

LakeRuins on April 26, 2006 at 9:21 AM

I’d rather have Hot Air and sponsors, then Dead Air and bankruptcy – can any Phillyburbian say “Air America”?

bucktowndusty on April 26, 2006 at 9:46 AM

Wow, what insight and wit, these are deep thinking intellectuals.

ursa5000 on April 26, 2006 at 10:05 AM

ursa5000, why are you here bottom feeding amongst us, then??? Are you an insight/wit/deep-thinking liberal anaylst troll of Phillyburb?

Just posting here as you do, proves that Michelle has something that compels you to be a part of.

bucktowndusty on April 26, 2006 at 10:16 AM

I guess Libs take themselves and their “opinions” so seriously, they can’t even get the joke. How sad……..and amusing!

chetthepet on April 26, 2006 at 10:32 AM

I for one am proud to be one of the “crazy rightwing nutjobs”. Keep going storng Michelle – Hot Air Forever!

redcard on April 26, 2006 at 10:39 AM

Ursa 5000, I’ve seen what passes for insight and wit at the Daily Koz and Barbara Streisand’s site. A more mean, arrogant, and intolerant bunch I’ve never seen. A new, conservative columnist at the LA Times so flummoxed Streisand she dropped the paper. What a world view.

right as rain man on April 26, 2006 at 10:43 AM

I love that name calling of any kind is verboten by the left, unless you are a conservative, or white, or Christian, or not poor.

Number 2 on April 26, 2006 at 10:59 AM

Just another Philly burbs resident here that loves the new site and Michelle Malkin . . .

MRegine on April 26, 2006 at 10:59 AM

Oh pooh.

(listen to me swear…)

Michelle, you’re doing great. DON”T STOP!!!!!!

Lonevoice on April 26, 2006 at 11:08 AM

lamely make fun of us for making fun of ourselves.

HA!!! I KNEW they wouldn’t get it, and I was just waiting for someone to stupidly say something just like that!
Look at how much they despise (smirky, self-deprecating) Bush–he doesn’t have that LONG FACE look (see also: Jean Francois Kerry, Algore).

bamapachyderm on April 26, 2006 at 11:18 AM

Liberals have no ideas all they can do is bitch wine an moan. They are miserabel filled with hate and self loathing and comtempt for every decent person around… Ug!

birdman on April 26, 2006 at 11:25 AM

My favorite lib quality is their manic obsession to silence any who wisely disagree with their passionate stupidity. Intolerance and ignorance are hardwired into their makeup. Freedom of any sort is anathema to them. Choice is verboten.

ecamorg on April 26, 2006 at 12:13 PM

I agree ecamorg they shut up anybody who disagrees with them, with your a bigot, homophope, sexest, racest etc. What did Whitakeer Chambers say speaking of libs. is true. “The people with the most guilt shout the loudest”.

birdman on April 26, 2006 at 12:21 PM

Remember Free speech is only for Liberals because they are tolerant. As a Phila. Suburbanite I’m so tired of dealing with Liberals. People near me still have their Kerry/Edwards
yard signs up. AAAuuugggHHH!

Fandango on April 26, 2006 at 12:23 PM

Hey Fandango i’m from Camden N.J. now live outside Atl. Cty. the libs. destroyed Camden as they have Phily and every city

birdman on April 26, 2006 at 12:28 PM

I remember, years ago, negotiating with a City Council member for a pay raise and the right to binding arbitration for settling disputes. The council member, a notorious lib, was at that time big into the plight of the migrant farm workers and a supporter of the lettuce boycott, Black Panthers, and Che Guaverra.

Her liberalism stopped at the council doors, however. She treated the municipal employees dismissively and rudely, as if we were simply lucky to have a job. I learned then what the left was about, and watching Hillary over the years only reinforces that image.

right as rain man on April 26, 2006 at 12:53 PM

Hmm, I wonder if we can get everyone to change their blog headers, either up in the title bar or underneath the blog name, to read “crazy rightwing nutjob.”

William Teach on April 26, 2006 at 12:57 PM

PS: can anyone name more than 3 liberal sites that are actually funny? Ones who talk about politics, I should say.

William Teach on April 26, 2006 at 1:01 PM

Travis, your wife is a woman! I mean like a man with Barbie dolls! (haha) Sell them one at a time and hope she doesn’t notice.

Philly has (very sadly) become a socialist paradise. Crime, drugs, poverty, union thugs etc. ,y dad remembers when it was a Pubbie town. Neat, clean and safe.

Take a look at what you Libs have done to our once great cities. Then blame on the ‘Pubs. Baltimore, Detroit, L.A., Chicago etc etc. Thanks a lot, morons.

Tony737 on April 26, 2006 at 1:06 PM

Well, so the libs cannot imagine a more fitting name for our site than HOT AIR. I am quite surprised since the hardcore libs/Dems SPECIALIZE in name calling.

Perhaps we should gather around the radio and listen to FOUL AIR AMERICA and learn (as I recall from the way it was reported)how to divert money meant for a children’s fund for the purpose of self financing.

Perhaps we should visit hardcore lib/Dem sites to learn that by insults, screaming, threats to people’s families, living up to double standards, information based on desparation, and by wearing color coodinated Che Guevarra action wear is the way to win arguments and elections.

FLAMING BLOODY HELL NO!!!!! I WILL TAKE HOT AIR OVER LIBERAL FART AIR ANYTIME!!! (Pardon my crudeness)

The False Dervish on April 26, 2006 at 1:07 PM

Come on everybody libs have a great sense of humer throwing rocks, slashing tires, beating their wives, after theve have cumsumed a case of beer. All of you sound like a pack of “right wing nut jobs”.

birdman on April 26, 2006 at 1:15 PM

NEVER guage your success on compliments from The Right.

Hate Mail and name calling from The Left is ALWAYS a sign

that you’re doing the right thing.!!!!

THEPEOPLESCUBE on April 26, 2006 at 1:18 PM

I’m glad to see the liberal mantra of “if you can’t beat ‘em, insult ‘em” is alive and well. It will free the rest of us up so we can actually accomplish something.

Like everyone else here, I love this site and think it’s a great idea. Keep up the good work, Michelle and Company!

Jezla on April 26, 2006 at 1:29 PM

HAHA

I just left them a scathing message.

Anyone want to take lots on how long it takes before I get accused of being “angry” or “hateful”?

dallas94 on April 26, 2006 at 2:36 PM

William, so true, none of my lib friends like hockey. I guess it’s too meeeeaaannnn for them. They think’s just a bunch of goons beatin’ the crap outta each other. But then I explain the tip in shot and hom much talent and skill that requires. Of course they’d rather watch polo!

Tony737 on April 26, 2006 at 2:39 PM

freya4freedom on April 26, 2006 at 3:26 PM

Just over Brian Malloneys site seems Air Iran Radio network has lost one third of its audience in the last year that means there down to two nomes if their audience

birdman on April 26, 2006 at 6:23 PM

Hot Air…one more reason to celebrate! Anything that makes the libs heads’ explode(Wait, that would cover a wide expanse)is great news. I have perused the previous posts and the general consensus is correct…the more the Left screams about Michelle, the more we know how effective she’s being.

Talk Radio has made a huge difference in General Elections in recent years. Let’s hope that this site further facilitates our successes in ’06 and ’08. Cheers!

Woody58 on April 27, 2006 at 9:12 AM

I am really excited about this site! I’ve visited some of the left-wing blogs and most of the “discussion” that goes on their sounds like a bunch of middle schoolers. If a conservative tries to post there, he/she gets hit with such great arguments as “oh yeah, Bush is a liar” or “oh yeah, Bush is an idiot”. I’ve never seen such a bunch of closed minded and childish and downright mean people as I see on those blogs. I hope to see a lot of truly open, honest and intellectually stimulating discussion going on here. I hope the true Conservatives will show the left how it is done!!

steelersfan on April 27, 2006 at 10:25 AM

oops – on my previous post – I meant “I’ve visited some of the left-wing blogs and most of the “discussion” that goes on >> there

steelersfan on April 27, 2006 at 10:30 AM

“Crazy rightwing nutjob Michelle Malkin has started a video site for conservatives called Hot Air. I really can’t imagine a more fitting name for the site.”

Have you seen the episode of South Park about the hybrid cars?

Hello! SMUG ALERT! Can’t… breathe… too much smug

It’s time for HOT Air. Thank you!

duggernaut on April 27, 2006 at 11:51 PM

They just can’t stand it can they? Outsmarted, outclassed, outthunk…throwing rocks is all they can manage.

BeeCharmer on April 28, 2006 at 5:09 AM

RWR, the next “Hot Air” rally will be on a weekend, we’ll get all the retired military guys (like me) at this one and we’ll get the rest of the true American patriots at the next one. Take Care.

Richard Davis on April 28, 2006 at 8:51 AM

As a VERY LONG time supporter and fan of “Crazy rightwing nutjob Michelle Malkin” I will buy my first bumper sticker ever from the ‘Gear’ shop, and I think I’ll spring for a hat too to make sure that people like this Phillyburbs troll and his running dogs get the point.
