Consensual Validation re: Jill Carroll

It's dark, cold, and lonely out here on this ledge. The wind tears me, while the rain batters me, and the cold reaches all the way to my bone marrow. Reminds me of Kermit finding it so hard being green. After all, most everybody else seems to be slobbering over the "emperor's new clothes," a la the triumphal march of Aida, oops, Jill Carroll. You know Jill, that pretty girl reporter who wears "birth control glasses," for some unknown reason.

Here I have been saying that we are all being taken for chumps by the Carroll Caper, and that only time will tell the truth. Not so for most folks--they have been cutting Jill slack, even rolling out the red carpet.

No, there are no ATMs or Starbucks on this ledge.

But, thanks to a good friend who is infinitely resourceful finding stuff on the internet, I have found that I am not alone in my "extremity."

Making this discovery felt like going from pressing my back into cold, wet rock wall, while baby-step crab-walking to find out just how much ledge there really is, suddenly to finding another hand, not mine. And the skin on that hand was warm.

Revelations! I have not been alone. Oh, frabjous day, callou, callay, I truly chortled in my joy!

That other on the ledge turns out to be a syndicated columnist who writes truth like firing a Thompson sub-machine gun. She has articles in lots of places, including Front Page Magazine.

She is Debbie Schlussel. I hate to refer to any lady as a "no-bull-shit-artist" (No, Cynthia McKinney, "lady" does not mean you), but that is what she is.

Here are a few juicies from her 2 April blog, deliciously called Premature Articulation: The REAL Jill Carroll for Jimmy Carter Geraghty and Others w/Reading Comprehension Deficiencies.

  • "Here's a note to you bloggers--especially the suddenly blind conservative ones--who want Jill Carroll to be what she is not. Please read it VERY CAREFULLY and S-L-O-W-L-Y, as some of you seem to have premature articulation and reading comprehension problems (that includes National Review Online's Jim Geraghty a/k/a "Jimmy Carter Geraghty," so nicknamed for his apparent propensity to ignore truths about pro-Islamists when they are right in his face):

    "Over the last few months, since Jill Carroll was kidnapped and upon her release, I posted her REAL views [see her blog for the links]. They remain her views, and she has NOT denied or disavowed them.

  • "Facts Are Stubborn Things: Jill Carroll's Extremist Friends, Views NOT Refuted
    Jill Carroll was a close friend of the late Code Pinko Marla Ruzicka a/k/a "Treasonatrix Barbie." Ruzicka's group helped raise money for Islamic insurgents in Fallujah who burnt our contractors to a crisp. They also raised money for Palestinian terrorists in Gaza and the West Bank. You can tell a lot about a person by the company she keeps. And that was with whom Jill Carroll kept company.

  • "So ask yourself--ye blind worshippers of Jill Carroll--why did these rabidly Islamist groups in the U.S. go out on a limb for Jill Carroll, and no-one else? So, Jimmy Carter Geraghty and others, I'm waiting for your answer. But I know one will never be forthcoming. (As for Jim, his e-mail address indicates he's in Turkey, so perhaps he, too, like Jill Carroll is writing "in captivity," or perhaps he's seen "Kurtlar Vadisi - Irak" one too many times.)"

These are just snippets, like pirouettes in a Claymore mine field. There's more on her site.

Just you wait...

    If a sitting congresswoman was about to be exposed as a thief that stole money from the public what would she do?

    Thanks, I was wondering what the real story was with Jill Carroll but I hadn’t the time to research the web. When one can’t trust the MSM and now many at the religion-can-only-be-good National Review, I figured the real story was being brushed aside by journalists who seem more interested in avoiding the story than being good investigative journalists.

    Gotta love the web. All I have to do is check one of the links on my blog and presto, one of you guys (or gals) has the goods.

    JasonSpalding, Please see our blog "Res Ipsa Loquitor" for 4 April 06. I think this addresses some of what you are raising.

    Jason Pappas, I agree. Ain't the web great? We are doing end runs around those thought-control freaks faster than they can find their butts with both hands. Wait until the real nitty-gritty begins to leak out about Sharia Jill.

    Schussel is nuts!

    Marla Ruzicka was murdered exactly a year ago. Today's post in my blog remembers Marla: Civilian Victims of War.

    She did advance U.S. interests:
