Posted on 02/24/2012 7:36:43 AM PST by RatherBiased.com
In an apparent fit of rage against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, liberal New York Times columnist Charles Blow took to Twitter to tell him to "stick that in your magic underwear" for supporting the idea that society ought to concern itself with the large numbers of children born outside of wedlock.
That sentiment apparently set off Blow who tweeted the following at 8:56pm ET on the 22nd: "Let me just tell you this Mitt 'Muddle Mouth': I'm a single parent and my kids are *amazing*! Stick that in your magic underwear."
Judging from a tweet Blow sent earlier in the evening, it seems as if he believed Romney (who was actually echoing remarks made previously by fellow candidate Rick Santorum) was trying to condemn single parents who are racial minorities. That wasn't what Romney was saying at all, of course. Instead, he was saying that when speaking of the life arrangements of children, it is undeniable that those who come from married parent households fare much better than those who come from single parent households and perhaps in light of this fact, society ought to reconsider ways in which it has unwittingly worsened the circumstances of children of single parents.

I had a brother crippled for life with cerebral palsy. He was a wonderful human being, patient and cheerful with his affliction. Nonetheless, I don't recommend cerebral palsy.
Charles Blows “He needed the money”.
Charles Blow.... he needed the money.
They often say it at the trial.
Wonder if Charles Blow posts on the anti-Mormon threads here as well..
Blow seems like a bigot.
Check and see if your stupid phone recognizes “ducats”.
We all here at FR were told that the main stream media would never ever... even a little bit bring up Willard “Mitt” Romney’s religion...
But then again I repeat myself
So where is Mrs. Blow?
Would this liberal hypocrite call a yamaka a Magic Beany?
Can you even imagine the reaction if a conservative reporter said "stick that in your yarmulke" to a liberal Jewish candidate?
It’s classic, part of my thought that all superlibs (if not cultural) have severe anger problems.
It may not be on the surface, but then it’s buried deep. When opinions are mentioned contrary to their worldview, they will take them as personal attacks, as in, “This person feels this way, therefore they disapprove of me, hate me, and are trying to destroy me.”
To this day I feel Sarah was attacked so viciously by the lib press because she dared to have a Downs child. Her keeping of the pregnancy caused every person who had aborted their “defective” to seethe with hatred and guilt.
Some folks are just aptly named.
I’ve seen a scapular. It was a necklace made of a ribbon with a picture on it. Not underwear. Not magic. Never heard of accessorizing it with special underwear, either.
Not an apt comparison.
Sounds like Mr. Blow is a little sensitive in this area. You know something is up when someone takes a general statement of fact or truth and gets HIS underwear in a bunch by taking it as a personal attack. Lefties do this a lot, but they are not the only ones.
I, too, believe that definitely played into it. Nice looking annoyed them too.
His kids are just as amazing as my kids, or any kids on the planet.
That means they deserve a married mother and father and an intact home.
If they have been deprived of that and are persevering well that does not mean they didn’t deserve it. It doesn’t mean it wasn’t wrong to take that chance away from them.
I think I did miss your point. What was your point in comparing Mormon underwear to scapulars?
