Her primary school held a mock election. She cast her vote for Obama – because, she says: “He’s brown and I’m brown.”
She was less than pleased when McCain won.
Of course, I can’t say I’m surprised.
Two weeks ago, Mr. Smartypants’ 9-year-old friend informed me that I should vote for McCain because some people say Obama doesn’t believe in God – and that could be very bad for our country. She also tells me that – no matter what – she will never become a stripper because strippers are inappropriate.
The thing is: growing up Northeast Tennessee means her odds of becoming a stripper are way higher than the odds of her becoming a Democrat.
