Last week, while driving by DU
Me: Kids, did you know President Obama is going to be there tonight?
Girl, angrily: Obama shpends 4 BILLION dollars a day!!!
Boy, yelling: THAT’S NOT TRUE! THAT’S JUST A LIE MITT ROMNEY SAID SO HE WOULD GET ELECTED PRESIDENT! IT’S NOT TRUUUUUUE!
Me: Girl, who are you going to vote for President?
Girl: Mitt Romney! Mitt Romney! Mitt Romney!
Boy, yelling again: HE’S A LIAR!! YOU CAN’T VOTE FOR HIM!! HE’S A LIAAAARRRR!!!
I couldn’t imagine where they had heard any of this since we don’t tune in to commercial TV or radio, and I don’t think I’ve ever said anything about Obama’s spending.
Me: So, where did you hear this?
Boy: Remember the commercials we watched during the Olympics?
Ah, those commercials. 2 MONTHS ago. And apparently since then we’ve had a red state/blue state divide in my own house, and I didn’t even know it.
