It's Fake and Wouldn't Matter if it was Real.

Uber-blogger Michelle Malkin has been the victim of an internet hoax involving photoshopped pictures of her. Someone thought they would be nasty and paste her face on a bikini clad young woman. The pictures are so obviously fake that they would laughable yet a couple of people apparently are pushing them real.

What if they were real?

Is it a crime, or a betrayal of conservative principles for an attractive woman to wear a bikini? What do they expect her to wear to the beach? A burkha? I am sure there are probably genuine pictures of conservative women in bathing attire. (Some guys would probably wait in line for one of Ann Coulter.) No big deal.

What is a big deal is that the pictures are obviously fake and yet some people will still not admit the pictures were fake. Now the equally obviously fake pictures of her and young woman, er fooling around, are a bigger deal. Posting pictures in parody and acknowledging the picture were altered is one thing, but passing them as real is a crime.

I think I'd be able to wait on Ann Coulter. I have gone out of my way to see Pam from "Alas Shrugs" doing her bikini vlogs.

This type of thing should be punishable with jail time. Unfortunately the society we lives in seems to believe that if you go public then you are simply setting yourself up and you are fair game. Obviously, like you, I don't agree with that.
