A conversation that took place 5 minutes ago, while I was putting the boys to bed for the night. The boys got to "vote" at school today, and we had been talking about the election and the electoral college.
Eli (9 years old): I'm ashamed to say that my home state of Idaho is voting for John McCain.
Adam (7 years old): Haha! I was born in Michigan, and Michigan is voting for Barack Obama!
Eli: Dad, what about California where you were born?
Dad: California is totally voting for Barack Obama.
Adam: I forget, where was Mom born?
Eli and Dad (in unison): Massachusetts.
Adam: Who is Massachusetts voting for?
Dad: Barack Obama for sure.
Adam: How do you know?
Dad: Massachusetts always votes for the Democrat.
Adam: There's one thing I don't like about Democrats. It sounds like that crat stuff you put on hot dogs sometimes.
