Malkin Award Nominee

This blog’s newest award, named after everyone’s favorite lunatic Republican spokesmodel, is for partisan political hacks who go on talk shows and spread unsubstantiated, slanderous rumors about their foes. Today’s nominee is House Speaker Dennis Hastert, who said the following on yesterday’s installment of Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace:

HASTERT: You know, I don't know where George Soros gets his money. I don't know where - if it comes overseas or from drug groups or where it comes from. And I ...

WALLACE: Excuse me?

HASTERT: Well, that's what he's been for a number years - George Soros has been for legalizing drugs in this country. So, I mean, he's got a lot of ancillary interests out there.

WALLACE: You think he may be getting money from the drug cartel?

HASTERT: I'm saying I don't know where groups - could be people who support this type of thing. I'm saying we don't know. The fact is we don't know where this money comes from.

If Hastert had a blog, I’m guessing this morning he’d be posting that “I never said Soros gets his money from drug cartels- and that caveman Chris Wallace knows it!”

So Malkin has overtaken Coulter on the wackiness scale?

would the aforementioned Chris Wallace be the former GM of the Boston Celtics? Or the late Biggie Smalls?
