It’s not just a woman’s prerogative to change her mind; it’s also Conor Friedersdorf’s. In his Atlantic column today, Friedersdorf got himself all bent out of a shape over a 2002 column by Michelle Malkin that dealt with illegal immigration. Malkin had argued that Iraqi terrorists could potentially enter the U.S. through our southern border with Mexico:
And according to Friersdorf, that makes her a fearmonger who suffers from a raging case of “needless, xenophobic panic.”

Friedersdorf actually warned about the implications of unprotected borders on multiple occasions, as Breitbart.com’s John Sexton points out:

Ace of Spades continued the shredding:

Correction: We misspelled Friedersdorf’s name in an initial version of this post. We regret the error. Also, we revised the headline to clarify that it was Brietbart.com, not Breitbart, who shredded Friedersdorf.
