When Middle Schoolers prepare to vote…

The FPK, like many whatever-the-heck-his-generation-is types, has been highly annoyed by the fact that he was not allowed to vote, particularly when there are “idiot adults who don’t know as much as I do about the candidates, Mom”. Good thing his civics class held a mock election this week.

On Tuesday, he actually came home wearing a McCain-Palin button. Why?

“Because when some of the kids saw it, they said ‘McCain sucks’ and it made me smile.”

I’m sure there was some sort of teachable moment I missed there…
