Given all the respect they deserve

One lesson I learned early on in life is really quite simple: respect is earned.  There’s a flipside to this lesson though that many people, particularly caring, empathetic, or inherently good-hearted people often miss out on.  Contempt, like respect, can be earned.

Apparently the good folks over at LGF never learned that particular lesson.  It seems an LGF reader recently contacted the director of Columbia University’s business school exhorting him to release footage from their 2003 farewell party for Rashid Khalidi, first reported on by the LA Times.  Gotta give the good director credit, he treats this “request” with exactly the level of respect it deserves:

Subject: Re: Please release Khalidi’s 2003 tape
Date: Tue, 28 Oct 2008 06:02:41 -0400
From: [redacted]
To: [redacted]

Yeah, right…loser

The fact that Director Jackson even bothered to reply, and from his Blackberry no less, is to the LGF crowd’s credit.  It’s more than they deserve.

This whole conspiratorial Khalidi line of attack being pumped up by the nuttier wings of the blogosphere, and their outrage at being blown off, are a joke.  The only thing that can make this incident sweeter?  Reading Michelle Malkin’s “Pray“.

This is a movement broken people; now it’s time to start grinding the glass.  If you haven’t voted yet do so.  If you were thinking about skipping out because your area is already Democratic don’t.  If you know anyone who can’t get to the polls do everything in your power to get them there. In short: make this a landslide.  Leave no doubt that this was the day the Malkin wing of the country was sent packing back to the rock they crawled out from under.
