Make A Wish Foundation Gives 5-Year-Old Leukemia Survivor His Dream: Being Batman for a Day

Or "Batkid." The Foundation arranged for "villains" like Riddler to make trouble for him to sort out, including saving a damsel tied to the train (cable car) tracks. Video (stolen from Hot Air's coverage) below.

Twitchy's been covering the cutest story of the month.

His little brother was permitted to horn in on the fun by getting to be Robin Junior:

Of course, this wonderful story about dozens of people working hard to make a sick little boy deliriously happy is just an opportunity for smug, passive-aggressive More Empathetic Than Thou progressives to engage in some public preening. This was posted, seriously, on Twitter:

Happy for #SFBatKid, but cant help but wonder if this would happen for a kid who isnt white. Lets put energy into solving societal ills

I asked this particular miscreant what exactly she'd done today to make any children happy, or what energy she'd put into "solving societal ills," but she didn't answer.

So, apparently it was just that: Just the 100 character Tweet. That was her effort towards "solving societal ills" for the day, which now gives her the unearned moral authority (as Breitbart called it) to lecture others.
