Political differences

Had such a weird experience today driving home Caleb and his friend from football.

I pointed out a yard sign for Ann Marie Buerkle to Cal, because we hadn't seen any (I put a sign in our yard for Dan Maffei and he was curious about who was running against him).

His friend asked, "What's the difference between Democrats and Republicans?" And I gave a long explanation about state's rights vs. federal government involvement. When I was done, he said, "That's not what my mom said when I asked her."

So of course I asked what his mom said. And he didn't want to tell me, because he said "It's not very nice." But he did tell me, and this is what he said:

"She said that if a pregnant woman dies, the Democrats will kill her baby."

Er, I wasn't quite sure what to say to that!
