Bug Boy Said It, Not Me!


April 19, 2008 by Marj Hatzell

Last evening we discussed political affiliations while we ran some errands with the boys in the car.  Bug Boy has insisted for WEEKS that if allowed to vote, he’d vote for Obama.  I’ve been pressing him for an explanation, other than the fact that Obama is a boy and, therefore, worthy of Bug Boy’s vote.  He would just shrug and say, “I don’t really know!”

So, there we are.  In the car, past the boys’ bedtimes, Bug Boy prattling on, eavesdropping on every word of our conversation, interupting us every five seconds.  Darling was getting a bit impatient with Bug Boy.  (Side Note:  Darling is a registered Republican.  Don’t you feel sorry for me?  And, he grew up in a house full of feminist women who vote pro-choice and were members of the green and independent parties. Go figure.)Finally, out of desperation, I turned to Bug Boy and said (through clenched teeth), “Bug Boy.  You’ve interupted me several times.  What is so important that you’ve had to cut into this conversation?  He looked at me rather shocked and said, “But I know why I’d vote for Obama!”  At which I rolled my eyes and said, “Fine. Spit it out. Why would you vote for Obama?”

Without missing a beat he said, “Because Hillary looks like she is evil.”

He said it. Not me. I had NOTHING to do with it.

Out of the mouths of babes…

  1. Oh. My. Goodness.


    I can never have children.


    And what is up with the Hubbie?

    I cannot even start to get my head around that.

    My parents were very clear with themselves and AG from the start — you don’t date or marry outside the party. Far more scary is that father is more liberal in politics than mother, but less compassionate in verbal role modeling.

    Go figure.

    I’m still in therapy for that. 🙂

    Here’s the best part, I have dated with the exception of once, men who are far more bleeding heart liberal than AG. Can you imagine?!!

    This makes a difference in the potential for putative children to say stuff that will make me want to go Andrea Yates on them.

    I think it’s time to get the DG household the Rosie the Riveter video.
