And by “young” I’m talking 4 years old. Absolutely unbelievable. Via Politico’s Dylan Byers:
I really thought I’d seen everything, but of course MSDNC never fails to sink to new lows so I shouldn’t be surprised at all by this. AllahPundit at Hot Air comments:
The idea here, I take it, was to show that supporting gay marriage is so obvious that even a five-year-old can arrive at the right conclusion if left to reason her way through it. That’s not how it comes off; you get the sense that this segment would have run for 20 minutes, with Krystal Ball nudging all the way, if that’s how long it would have taken to arrive at the favored result. I hope they keep this up and expand it to other hot-button issues. I’d be awfully curious to see what a five-year-old thinks of, say, abortion.
Look, there’s nothing wrong with having a debate/discussion about alternative forms of marriage. In the last few years, it’s been an extremely hot topic. But dragging a child into it is just so many levels of inappropriate you’d think even the dopes at MSNBC would understand it. But apparently not.
Update – 5:48 PM: I didn’t catch it the first time around because parts were difficult to hear, but apparently the young girl is Krystal Ball’s daughter.
