Elementary School Election

My six-year-old son said he voted today for Bill Ritter. If Bill Winter had been a choice, he said, he would have voted for him, but there was only two choices, Beauprez and Ritter. For months, when speaking, I've been accidentally saying Winter for Ritter or Ritter for Winter. So the similar name thing worked for my son.

He didn't know what his school's election results were. But right across the street from his school is a very Democratic house with lots of signs, including a "Bush lied, thousands died" sign.

And he had voting problems! He said when he folded his ballot in half it wouldn't fit into the box, so he had to unfold it. When will we fix this broken system!?! Think of the children!
