Politics, Schmolitics

My brother, an Obama supporter, told my mother he won't speak to her for the rest of the summer because she voted for Clinton in Tuesday's primary. (All voting is by mail here, so even though the primary is two days away, lots of folks have already voted.)

My ninety-four year old grandmother claims she voted for Clinton because she dislikes McCain and "wouldn't even whistle for him." Since it's unlikely that Clinton was listed on her Republican ballot, I fear she may have accidentally voted for Ron Paul.

Someone in one of my kids' first families refuses to believe that Obama would not be our first Muslim president. Since the entire argument boiled down to, "No, he wouldn't," vs. "Yeah, I read it in an email," the conversation didn't get very far. I'm thinking we'll table politics as a discussion topic for awhile.

Sigh. I'm ready for November 4th already.
