Feckless Matt Lewis calls Malkin ‘execrable’ like Frum, scurries away


It’s awfully hard to tell who’s “punching down” when you’re as far below punching range as The Daily Caller’s Matt Lewis.

@mattklewis Well you're punching up at @michellemalkin. Write when you have created two of the most popular conservative sites on the Web.

And for Lewis, explaining how Michelle Malkin is David Frum-ishly “execrable” is even harder.

@mattklewis Not sure what word you were searching for. I actually cannot think of one to fit that context."Execrable" doesn't.

.Attention @mattklewis: Someone apparently hacked your Twitter account & tried to equate @michellemalkin with faux conservative David Frum.

@michellemalkin @mattklewis Execrable, please argue 1 point to this effect

— rudy hernandez (@rudemets) September 22, 2012

What’s easy is lobbing a clownishly absurd insult at “meany pants” Malkin before making a hasty and cowardly retreat.

.@mattklewis Hey maybe you can do a show with @edmorrissey on HotAir to talk about how "execrable" I am. I'll listen. http://t.co/FIJYVgul

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 22, 2012

Hot Air? Surely the site is just as “execrable” as its founder, right?

@michellemalkin @edmorrissey Always happy to go on #TEMS

— Matt Lewis (@mattklewis) September 22, 2012

But, but, but … execrable, no? How ’bout you explain yourself now?

.@michellemalkin .@mattklewis Yes, sir…we're ALL listening and waiting for your explaination.

— Beth Ann Goodwin (@GoodwinHH6) September 22, 2012

And maybe man up and try using Malkin’s Twitter handle.

@alwaysonoffense The fecklessness, it burns.

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 22, 2012

.@mattklewis Why don't you go ahead and just explain your remark now. I'm listening.

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 22, 2012

WTH? RT @michellemalkin: .@mattklewis Hey maybe you can do a show with @edmorrissey to talk about how "execrable" I am. http://t.co/kCC9PgwG

— Ed Morrissey (@EdMorrissey) September 22, 2012

Ask him that, Ed. @edmorrissey

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 22, 2012

"Execrable:" abominable – odious – loathsome – abhorrent – detestable

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 22, 2012

Yep, that’s Michelle. Odiously encouraging personal responsibility and ever-so-detestably rejecting the Nanny State.

@JasonBWhitman tick tick tick tik tick

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 22, 2012

And … crickets.

Actor Adam Baldwin and others asked Lewis to apologize like a “gentleman.”

@mattklewis Execrable?? Really?? Not the first word that comes to mind when I think of @MichelleMalkin. Why not apologize?

— Color Me Red ن (@ColorMeRed) September 22, 2012

@mattklewis @MichelleMalkin is a lot of things but "execrable" is not among them. You should apologize forthwith. #BeAMan

— Wayne Austin (@WaynesterAtl) September 22, 2012


Evidently “gentleman” is another word Lewis can’t quite wrap his mind around.

@adamsbaldwin Why would I apologize for such precise and appropriate word choice?

— Matt Lewis (@mattklewis) September 22, 2012

So “precise and appropriate” he can’t manage to explain himself. Instead, the self-described “Morning Joe” fan attempts to deflect by playing the “shaddup, you’re all lefties!!111!” card.

I disdain this weak-kneed trend of constantly calling on (demanding?) others to "apologize." (I'd expect this sort of thing from the Left.)

A bit of advice from @ExJon’s dad:

@adamsbaldwin My dad taught me two things: Never start a land war in Asia and never pick a media fight with @michellemalkin.
