Well, we got our asses handed to us. (Sort of. More on that later.)
For now, I thought I'd just share a funny moment I had with my 12 year old son, who happens to be a little overly erudite for his age.
On election day, Congressman Portman stopped by HQ and gave me a cookie with Senator McCain's head painted on it. I took the cookie home and left it sitting on the kitchen counter.
Wednesday afternoon as I was making dinner, my son walked into the kitchen, looked at the cookie, and said, "Can I have this?" Being the good dad who didn't want his child to ruin his appetite thirty minutes before dinner, I replied, "No." He started to object (something about not getting a snack after school) and, annoyed, I simply firmed my voice a little and answered again, "No."
Sensing that I was being stared at, I looked over at my son who was looking at me with that special look he gets in his eyes when he's about to be a spectacular smartass.
"What?" I asked, with more than a little irritation in my voice.
He just grinned and said, "Dad, Obama won. That means that people with cookies have to give them to people who don't have any cookies."
I gave the little smartass the cookie, I figured he'd earned it. I also made him cut it in half and share it with his little brother.
Cookie redistribution at it's best...
