“Matt Yglesias: Sorry haters, Obama’s kids are worth more than yours” [updated]
I tweeted him, providing him the opportunity to clarify whether he meant more at risk, or more important — though he seems to be doubling down with the “important” bit. So far I’ve not received a response.
There is some good news that comes out of this, though: Yglesias, we now know, is not likely to procreate. Because no one with children would ever say anything so elitist and reprehensible.
So we’ve got that going for us.
Still no answer, but I had a few follow-up questions. For instance, just so we’re clear, is it Matt’s position that Obama’s children are more important than Grace, who loved pink, and wanted to be a painter? Were the kids of Newtown just some of the “masses,” useful in death as political props in service to an ideology?
