Responding to conservative columnist Michelle Malkin’s hyperbolic claim that “militant leftist bloggers” don’t want to have “a good-faith argument” about SCHIP, Ezra Klein takes the bait and challenges Malkin to a “good faith” debate on the issue:
Let’s have a good faith argument. I will debate Michelle Malkin anytime, anywhere, in any forum (save HotAir TV, which she controls), on the particulars of S-CHIP. We can set the debate at a think tank, on BloggingHeads, over IM. Hell, we can set up the podiums in the shrubbery outside my house, since that seems to be the sort of venue she naturally seeks out. And then if Malkin wants an argument, she can have one. We’ll talk S-CHIP and nothing but — nothing of the Frosts, or Congress, or her blog.
Will Malkin accept or will she run and hide?
