Several years ago, conservatives were denouncing Chris Matthews for ambushing Michell Malkin on his show. I wasn't one of them. I decried the weakness and naiveté she displayed.
Well, times have changed such that Ms. Malkin is now the only person who both fills in for Bill O'Reilly and is watchable. She's so watchable in fact that other than O'Reilly himself, there's no one who does this sort of thing better than she.
Malkin still lacks the confrontational strength of her mentor, but she's getting better all the time, and she is utterly lacking in that insecure arrogance O'Reilly exudes, not to mention that she appears to be strangely indifferent to hearing herself talk.
And Michelle Malkin is a true conservative which is to say that she leaves no doubt where she's coming from, and she doesn't take gratuitous shots at her fellow conservative in the interest of propping up that insidious "fair and balanced" Fox mantra.
I thought it would be Laura Ingraham who would become the female lead in the conservative cast, but clearly, at least to me, it's Michelle Malkin who is now the leading candidate for the role.
And she looks like a true American, doesn't she?
