Start the brainwashing early

As many of you know, Elliott is involved in Mitt Romney's campaign (if you don't know what he is campaigning for, you might as well never vote!)

Anyway, our boys, being the intellectual studs they are, have watched a couple of the debates with us. Thus, it should have come as no surprise to me that this conversation was going on in the back of the Yukon today:

Andrew (to Ethan): I hope Mitt Romney wins. Who do you want to win?

Ethan: I don't know. I don't care who wins.

Andrew: I want Mitt Romney to win. How come you don't care who wins?

Ethan: I just don't!

Andrew: But you don't want someone to win who will make you be their servant. If that democrat man or woman wins they will make you do what they say! So don't you want Mitt Romney to win?

Ethan: I don't care as long as it isn't that little guy who said, "if you don't want a president who believes in God, here I am."

Andrew: Yeah, the President has to believe in God.

Ethan: Yeah, but I don't want to vote for that little guy. He said, if you want a president who believes in God, I'm your man.

The conversation then devolved into a discussion about God and the creation, and I was really trying to remember the political discussion. My brain wasn't big enough to hold more, but you get the idea, right?? Anyway, I was shocked that Ethan had listened and then actually remembered what Governor Huckabee (the little guy) said in the debate!

Elliott was just looking over my shoulder and told me that tonight Andrew asked if he could contribute to Mitt Romney's campaign. Elliott told him you have to be eighteen, and that you have to have money. Andrew then told Elliott that he DOES have money.

Look out world. This is a future pundit if there ever was one!

That's really impressive. You have smart kids. They paid more attention than half the adults that were tuned in, I'm sure.

I promise I never told Andrew that the Democrats would make us their servants. He somehow figured that one out on his own. I don't even remember discussing Democrats and Republicans with him. It's amazing what kids pick up.
