The Gauntlet Has Been Thrown: Ezra Klein Challenges Michelle Malkin To A Duel Of Wits

Gosh, guess which one is coming to the battle seriously under-armed?

Ezra's blog:

"It's militant leftist bloggers," writes Malkin, "who wouldn't know a good-faith argument if it bit them in the lip." 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.[..]

So c'mon Michelle: Let's debate health care. Prove to the world that you really want "a good-faith argument." We can talk crowd-out, and cross-subsidization, and whether lower-middle class entrepreneurs are able to procure health care on the individual market. If this is a policy argument you care so deeply about as to travel to the Frost family's house to see if they really deserved S-CHIP benefits, surely you'll want to set up a web cam and talk through the issue.

Oh please, oh please, oh please.... C'mon, Jesse's girl, show us why you merit anything other than scorn for your ad hominem attacks and siccing your rabid readership on private citizens. I double dog dare you, Michelle.

Or do you already know that you can't possibly stand up to the facts?

Can you help us out?
