Writes Jason Williams: “Michelle Malkin is generally a columnist I think (or thought) is right on the money as long as you keep her away from the subject of war, when the knee-jerk reaction to support anything liberals oppose takes over and common sense yields.
However, her latest column is too repugnant for words; it is a paean to the USA Patriot Act and the wonderful security it provides. I feel saddened that such a flagrant and willing vassal of state power and the garrison mentality could have fooled me for a lover of liberty for so long.”
