House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement Friday praising “Batkid” (a.k.a. Miles, 5) for saving Gotham City (a.k.a. San Francisco) from a series of perils.

“Today, Gotham will finally breathe safe thanks to the super-sized might and extraordinary courage of our city’s true hero, Batkid. When Gotham City trembled in the grip of our most notorious villains, Batkid once again showed us the true meaning of bravery in the face of fear.

“In his young life, Batkid has fought a battle with cancer that would daunt even a full-grown superhero. He has emerged victorious, and is using that strength and positivity not only to save a city, but to inspire children across the globe who are fighting battles of their own.

“Miles, with your remarkable valor and your intrepid spirit, you have reminded us all what it is to believe in the power of our dreams. Thank you for saving the people of our city, stirring the hearts of a nation, and sharing your heroism with the world.”

    Aside from Nancy’s courageous statement, there’s a dissenting comment by an educably retarded SF supe named Mar reported in The Chron. Mar tweeted (what else?) the cash spent on Batkid could have been more profitably dispersed on the Deserving Poor. Even in Leningrad by the Bay, this was going too far. Mar was vigorously rebuked by Tweeters for placing class struggle before human kindness.
