Sadness abounds in my house

Today Brian was asking me why Chris and I voted for John McCain and not Barack Obama. I tried to explain to him in terms he could understand that John McCain believes in the same things that his daddy and I did and that Barack Obama does not. He kept probing me as to what Obama didn't believe in.

I explained that Obama wants to take more of our money to give to other people, and while it's good to help people who don't have as much as we do, his daddy and I don't think it's right for the people in the government to tell us to give our money. I also explained that Obama believes that it's okay for mommies to hurt babies that are in their tummies. And that John McCain wants us to keep our money and that it's not okay for mommies to hurt the babies in their tummies.

Brian looked at me and said with complete sincerity. "Well Mommy, that's wrong to hurt a baby. Why doesn't John McCain just tell Barack Obama that?"

I told him that John McCain has let Barack Obama know that it's not right. Brian then said, "Well, we should just tell him that it's not right then."

Out of the mouthes of babes.

And now we just have to pray mightily that the next four years will not be as horrific as I'm afraid it will be.
