"In the context of blogs like this one, "affordable housing" is almost always shorthand for government polices such as subsidies and de facto rent control."

Even so its applied to a finite set of units - much smaller as a proportion of total housing in DC than the residential parking spots are of total spots, IIUC. And its limited by income - which is in support of policy goals you may not agree with, or which may not be achieved efficiently by these means, but really seems to put it in a different category than residential parking permits. So lets avoid the jeremiads in all directions (rich irony in your choice of terms) and just agree to discuss parking on its own terms.
