Monday Morning Catfight

Readers of mwbh know full well of our distaste for the daytime television program entitled "The View," in which a panel of women, some of whom -- you'll notice I didn't say "all" -- have little to offer society at large beyond fodder for the tabloids, simulate a kaffee klatch for the benefit of bored housewives and other culturally depraved creatures across America. But today's episode stretched its own boundaries (which isn't saying much, but bear with us, please), and featured a guest who appears to have cracked open a book in her lifetime, which is helpful in advance of writing one.

Michelle Malkin, syndicated columnist and Filipina-American Jersey Girl, has been on the talk show circuit promoting her new book, the title of which saves us the trouble of an explanation, Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies. As the first clip shows, she has already left Matt Lauer of NBC's Today at somewhat of a loss, and has also appeared on ABC's Sunday morning talking-head-fest This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

Today posed the ultimate challenge. See for yourself in the second clip.
