Have you noticed how snitty Republicans get when they’re called out for cynically sacrificing the well-being of vulnerable children to make political points?

— LA Times

That’s LAT columnist Robin Abcarian, discussing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s “fight” with Disney over the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

Sacrificing the well-being of vulnerable children to make political points? Would that be something like a Disney exec admitting on internal video to inserting a gay agenda into children’s programming?

By the way: Abcarian might have her money on Disney, but if I were a betting man (I’m not, except for about once every three months when the Saturday night PowerBall jackpot approaches a couple hundred million) my money would be on DeSantis. I’d say he’s carefully choosing his battles and is well on his way to being the next President of the United States — with or without my vote. (Also, Rick Moran — not to be confused with Rick Moranis — makes a strong case for why this fight will hurt Disney a lot more than it will hurt DeSantis.)
