At least the NYT gets it

Following up on the emetic attacks on 12-year old children with medical problems, the New York Times apparently picked up the story, and actually didn't take the right-wing assholes' arguments at face-value. But what really struck me was Michelle "Japanese internment was a good idea" Malkin's argument:
Michelle Malkin, one of the bloggers who have strongly criticized the Frosts, insisted Republicans should hold their ground and not pull punches.

"The bottom line here is that this family has considerable assets," Ms. Malkin wrote in an e-mail message. "Maryland's S-chip program does not means-test. The refusal to do assets tests on federal health insurance programs is why federal entitlements are exploding and government keeps expanding. If Republicans don't have the guts to hold the line, they deserve to lose their seats."

These assets include the Graemes' home and another property that they rent.

So, yeah. Malkin wants them to have to choose between keeping their home or paying their children's medical bills. Classy!
