Michelle spoke at the conservative's alternative to the liberal Netroots confab in Austin, Texas and plugged the Move America Forward telethon as evidence of strength of the right-side of the blogosphere.
The New York Times news blog reported on the matter here:
From the Right: Michelle Malkin received a standing ovation as the featured speaker at Saturday’s luncheon for conservative bloggers. Ed Morrissey over at HotAir.com blogged part of her speech. “There should be no self-esteem crisis among the right-wing blogosphere,” Ms. Malkin told the audience. We have a long string of policy and media victories, and don’t need to apologize for anything. It was mostly the right-wing blogosphere who promoted the Move America Forward telethon that raised over $1.5 million for soldiers in war zones, three times the original goal. Gathering of Eagles, Protest Warriors, American Sheepdogs — conservatives are doers, not just talkers.We don’t need a change of tactics — we just need more conservatives to engage. Hit hard, hit fast, hit often. Regardless of how many readers each of us have, each blog post helps defend this Constitution.
