Yesterday terrorists killed at least 27 people after attacking a hotel in the capital of Mali. @JimmyPrinceton pointed out how Politico’s Roger Simon once mocked Mitt Romney for pointing out the terrorism threat in that country.
During the 2012 presidential campaign, Vox’s Matt Yglesias also mocked Romney for mentioning Mali in his terrorism warning, as Richard Grenell pointed out:

Romney going for the vote of single-issue Mali voters. Obama for people who don't like Osama bin Laden.

The best and the brightest sure were wrong about poking fun at Romney.
.@mattyglesias I like jokes that take 3 years to get to the punchline.
