Michelle Malkin appears on 'The View' to promote her new book

I stated in a previous post that Michelle Malkin will join the club of mainstream pundits once she goes through the rite of passage that is 'The View'. A club membership that eluded Mark Levin whose book was a New York Times bestseller despite not being able to promote it through the MSM circuit.

Michelle gives her summary of her View appearance on her site
Into the lion’s den: My encounter with The View
Best part: Every single member of the audience got a copy of the book!

Second best part: Whoopi Goldberg, who didn’t read the book, asserting that I called the administration the most corrupt ever in the book when I was on the set — and then waiting for me to leave to falsely assert that "that young lady" said it on the Today Show.

No, I didn’t. Here’s the video.

As I said on the show, my argument is that the Obama administration needs to be held to its own standards and rhetoric — and by that standard, it is one of the most corrupt in recent history — a point I made on the Hannity show last Monday when I launched.

You know you’ve won the argument when the ladies of the View are reduced to arguing how corrupt Team Obama is, and not whether.
VIDEO: Michelle Malkin on 'The View'
MICHELLE MALKIN: What I'm saying Whoopi is that you have to measure this administration - the principled foremost agent of everything fresh and clean, hope and change. Isn't what we were sold this last campaign? He rode in on a horse, a white horse taller than any other in recent memory. And you can talk to any young person who voted for Obama, they though they were going to get something fresh and clean. They got Tom Daschle, Bill Richardson, Joe Biden...
What is most startling about the video is how well Malkin controlled the floor, you could argue Joy and particularly Whoopi were sheepish. Malkin laid out her points with little rebuttal and the discourse was largely civil, Sherri asking the most poignant question from the view of a "first time voter". A stark contrast to Glenn Beck's outing on 'The View' where he was caught flatfooted and unable to project his true personality. AllahPundit agrees with Malkin's effective gameplan.
