Earlier this summer, a certain Republican grandparent came to visit and at some point, ended up playing hide and seek with the kids. And you know how kids will yell out every once in a while to indicate where they are to make it easier to find them? My kids yell out the names of Presidents. “Washington!” “Lincoln!” “Obama!” It’s very cute.

After the grandparents left, however, my son ratted out his grandfather and told me that he was whispering to the twins, “Yell Osama!”

That’s how you make Dad’s forehead vein bulge. The anger that I felt in that moment was searing, and there were a few conversations that needed to be had after that.

However, I could possibly envision a scenario after that incident in which I was put on the spot, had no time to think, and — after being asked to get someone else to say “Obama!” without using the word “Barack” — immediately call back to that memory and say “Osama!” before my brain could stop me.

I would hate myself. It would be humiliating and awful and I would never, ever forgive myself.

I know, because it’s what happened to this poor bastard.

In the interest of fairness, Evan Kaufman should at least be allowed to explain himself.
