On the candidates: "I know I know I know! I know John McCain and Ohhh-bama are running for president. I knowwwwww, Mom."
On the issues: "Oh, so Oh-bama wants our war to end. He wants to talk it out just like we try to talk it out when we're mad. Does John McCain think fighting is good? Maybe they need a time out. Maybe they should try because talking is good. Right, Mommy? Right?!"
On the historical significance of having a Black president: "In preschool, we mixed paint to match our skin to make masks of ourselffffs. One girl has really dark skin. It's pretty...LIKE CHOCOLATE! Mine is like...what color? Oh yeah, like white, sort of. Like peachy or something. There's all colors at preschool. But mostly white, sort of. But we're all our own color. Why is my skin mostly white again?"
On Lil E's official Decision 2008: "John McCain does not believe what we believe. I'm voting for Oh-bama, Mommy. I am. I AM! I AM VOTING FOR HIM!"
On what it all comes down to for the kid (call it preschool policy): "Oh-rock Oh-bama is really special."
Agreed, darlin'. Agreed.
