Two Funny Stories About Kids (Future Conservatives)

From an e-mail I recieved:

I recently asked my friend's little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, 'If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?'

She replied, 'I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people.' Her parents beamed.

'Wow...what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'But you don't have to wait until you're President to help people. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and rake my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house.'

She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, 'Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?'
I said, 'Welcome to the Republican Party.'

From my friends family blog (names changed):

Kendall came home from school on election day. The first thing I noticed was an "I voted" sticker stuck on her shirt. I was delighted and started asking her questions. This is how it went....

Me: Why do you have that sticker.
K: I voted today. My whole class did.
Me: (overly excited) So who did you vote for?
K: McCain. He's the good one. The other one is the bad guy.
Me: Really. Why is he the bad guy?
K: He's the mean one. Mom, did you vote?
Me: Well.... not yet. This is the moment when my awesome neighbor, who always saves me, calls and offers to keep my kids so I can go vote.
Me: So if Obama is the mean one then why are some people voting for him?
K: Lots of people are voting for him because they think he will take care of them so they don't have to take care of themselves.
Me: Shocked. It took me a couple minutes to process. Wow!
Me: Did your teacher tell you that?
K: No. I think I read it in the weekly reader.
Me: Of course, the weekly reader would say that!
K: Can I watch the news to see who wins tonight?
Me: (delighted) Sure! (A kid after my own heart!) Kendall, you guys are going to go to the neighbors while I go vote.
K: Good Job, Mom. (She said it with such respect that I felt like I was doing the most noble, heroic thing there was to do.) Her teacher won a lot of points in my book!

Not only did Kendall watch the news (until she got frustrated by how much they were talking about Obama) but she also conducted her own polls in the bathtub and tallied up the scores on the bathtub wall. McCain won, of course!

I especially like the first one. Kids ain't stupid -- until they're taught to not think by liberals.
