We're Partisan

For election day tomorrow, one of my favorite stories ever.

My friend Ann has a 10-year old daughter who, on occasion, tortures her younger brother. One recent afternoon she was being particularly bad, and Ann got mad at her and put her in a time-out. She then turned her attention entirely to her son.

A couple minutes later her daughter was sobbing hysterically. Ann tried to comfort her, asking her what was so incredibly terrible.

"Why?" she wailed, "Why are you treating me as if I were a Republican?"

  1. That is too freaking funny. Poor thing. She must have thought things were really bad if she pulled that one out . . . :-)


Tell me about it.
