From The Mouths Of Babes

"People were upset. But they started saying things, calling me very stupid, telling me my shirt was stupid and I shouldn't be wearing it. One person told me to go die. It was a lot of dying. A lot of comments about how I should be killed."

-- Catherine Vogt, 14, who conducted a political experiment to discover how much "tolerance" Obama supporters have in the 8th Grade - which even a teacher failed - as reported by the excellent John Kass in the Chicago Tribune.


  1. that's the difference - conservatives believer liberals are naive, childish...but liberals believe conservatives are EVIL, RACIST, GREEDY, BAD, ETC. so it's OK to treat bad racists like poop. that's how it is justified. at least that's how i justified it when i was one. :-)

  2. My kids are 10 and 12 years old. Before the election, I asked them who kids were voting for in their schools mock elections. They said most were for Obama. I asked if they asked why kids liked Obama. They said that the reason most often cited was, "...because he is black."
