Slate's Matt Yglesias has a Twitter message for all you parents out there. Your kids aren't as important as Obama's. Yglesias recently Tweeted that very thing saying, "Sorry haters, a kidnapping of the First Kids would be a way bigger deal than a kidnapping of your kids."
This is in response to the new NRA ad that calls the President and his gun-banning cohorts hypocrites and elitists for hiding behind armed guards and for having armed guards at their children's schools, even as they scoff at armed guards in your kids' schools and while they endeavor to take your guns away from you.
"Are the president's kids more important than yours?" the new NRA ad begins. "Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools?"
