Michelle Malkin on Prop 8 Trial: It Burns!

Michelle Malkin is an outspoken advocate of sunshine in government proceedings.

Well, except when the sun shines in the wrong place:

Judicial activism + far Left radical activism = Courtroom intimidation.

Yesterday, liberal California Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker issued an unprecedented ruling that will put the trial involving a challenge to the Prop. 8 same-sex marriage ban on YouTube…

This isn’t a sincere educational effort to provide transparency to the public. It’s a flagrant attempt at making Prop. 8 a show trial — and intimidating Prop. 8 backers who will be called to testify.

You would think Prop. 8 backers would be proud to show their faces in public, proclaiming their high principles in denying rights that don’t affect them whatsoever. Apparently, you would think wrong.

I was reading something the other day about the guy who put the anti-gay teacher referendum on the California ballot back in the 70s. He apparently now lives in a gated senior citizen community in Nevada and was outed by a local paper about his political past during a campaign to get on the community board so he claimed that he isn’t homophobic and was actually good friends with Harvey Milk. So this bit of anti-logic surprises me not a bit.

Jesus Christ, what have I done? The not-MSNBC ad looks like a South Park parody.

@nojo: It’s overstock.com here – probably because we just bought a bedframe and a bunch of pillowcases. As for Malkin – if they were televising the haters’ appeal of a Prop 8 victory, she’d be screaming for the same reason. Shine light on the haters, and the haters object. Can’t let them be seen to be hating – unfair!

Judge Walker, who was originally nominated by St. Ronnie, is a liberal?

(Nomination withdrawn due to a kerfluffle over his representation of the U.S. Olympic Committee in the Gay Olympics lawsuit, later nominated by George H.W. Bush)

@blogenfreude: I was impressed, twisting the video of a public trial into an act of goons. That takes talent.

@nojo: Talent, or, you know, complete lack of clue.

@SanFranLefty: There are rumors — rumors, mind you — that Judge Walker doesn’t hit for my team.

@SanFranLefty: I interned for a Nixon appointee who ruled that he had to cough up the tapes. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

@Dodgerblue: Rumors? I’m shocked a recusal motion hasn’t been filed yet.

@blogenfreude: And let’s not forget that Souter was a Bush appointee.

@IanJ: No, talent. Malkin knows what she’s doing. Shtick pays the rent.

I was totally unfamiliar with the Marvel Comics character illustrating the post. Clues to its identity (besides the panel text) were the style of art, which was clearly Jack Kirby’s work, and that it appeared in a Fantastic Four comic.

My research shows that this Punisher (and not the revenge driven vigilante Frank Castle with the same name) is a bio-mechanical robot sent by the world devouring Galactus to battle the Fantastic Four, as well as his former herald Silver Surfer. The art is from the May 1968 issue of FF entitled “When Calls Galactus”. Interestingly enough, this Punisher is not in the handy reference guide I have “Marvel – The Characters and their Universe”

I remember paying the then-current cover cost of 12 cents for a comic book through about 1970, when comics went up to 15 cents, then a quarter. Now they’re what, 4, 5 bucks?

@redmanlaw: I should slap a Comics Code Authority seal on the site sometime.

@redmanlaw: @nojo: I, for one, am unimpressed. As soon as he’s guided to the area by the body pulsations, “here he comes.”

Ugh. One minute punishers are the worst.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: but . . . but . . . he’s a compact, supremely merciless hard core mass of mayhem from the outer rim of the known universe.

Comic Sans Alert – Federal Government Edition: “Tribal Self-Governance: A Handbook for Tribal Governments”, Office of Tribal Self-Governance, Indian Health Service. Used on headings throughout the book. Is this really an appropriate use of our tax dollars?

@redmanlaw: I dare the TSA to use that template.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: You mention the quiet New Hampsherite in terms of Dodger speaking of friends of Dorothy?

@SanFranLefty: Damn, I always thought it was Scalia.
