Heh. My little Democrat.


Earlier this evening Madalyn came waltzing out to me and said, “Barack Obama is the first African-American to run for President” and then proceeded to regale me with Obama’s life story. She knew his wife’s name, the two kids’ names, where he grew up, that his mom is white and his dad black, etc. Then I thought, okay, smartypants, let’s see how much you really know. So I asked her where he’d been Senator and she knew that, too! Apparently that was the focus of their study this week in ILO (her gifted & talented class). I asked her if they were going to study McCain next week and she said yes, but then she also said, “He was taken prisoner by some mean guys in a war” so they apparently already touched on him a bit. (I’m very pleased with the class, in general, incidentally. This is definitely over and beyond what they study in her regular class.)
I’m just waiting for her to ask me for whom I’m voting so the brainwashing can begin. Surely they make Obama ’08 shirts in junior sizes.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
