Malkin the Reporter: Email From "Neighbor"

Malkin goes deeper into the toilet regarding the Frost family:

This question is for grown-ups only: Who deserves government-subsidized health insurance? What if I told you I drove these three cars (photos are showroom models):

A Volvo SUV…

A GMC Suburban…

And a nice, big Ford F250 Pickup work truck…

Those are the cars owned by the Frost family, Malkin assures us, and she posts photos of three spanking-new models of these cars to drive her brilliant "grown up" point home. And on what evidence does she "report" the auto-owning information? From an "unsolicited email" from someone who claims to be a neighbor. The person is obviously not a friend, and is also obviously a Right Winger of the Malkin kind:

I received an unsolicited e-mail this week from a neighbor of the Frost family, the family held up by Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and the entitlement expansionist Democrats. He wrote:

They’re good people. Terribly misguided, pathetically leftist buffoons, but still good people. It was a terrible accident and Bonnie is quite beat up with guilt over the events. Lots of neighbors pitched in to cook meals and help out… Bonnie works half time doing freelance editorial work and Halsey, an incredibly disorganized lovable goofball, just can’t seem to hold down a proper job or, when he’s tried, to run a proper company. He’s a millwork carpenter and does great work installing custom interior and exterior trimwork and cabinetry. He should be making great money but can’t get out of his way…

…Still, we make choices, right? They have three vehicles - a nice new volvo SUV, a Suburban, and his F250 Ford Pickup work truck, a nice house, and all four kids go to private school. Not sure where the money comes from, but they don’t make all that much. Should they be the poster child for S-CHIP? Heck no….

I wonder if somebody bought them a car. Or two. And I wonder in what kind of shape the cars are in, and if they're all being used. And if the "neighbor" is a neighbor, quite honestly. Am I supposed to take Malkin's word for it?

And I wonder too if the intermittent and part-time work has something to do with the fact that two of their children are brain-damaged.
