Ayelet Waldman

by Jonah Goldberg

Ramesh: It’s worth remembering that Ayelet Waldman wrote a column in 2005 declaring that if it had to be — “God forbid” — she’d rather all her children die than her husband die because while she loves her children, she is not “in love” with them. “I’m not in love with any of them. I am in love with my husband.” I salute her honesty, even if I find her worldview beyond comprehension (frankly such a statement from my wife would terrify me). Whatever your own view of the matter, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s a zealous defender of her husband on Twitter.
