The Apple and The Tree

The other day I downloaded podcasts of Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow's inauguration day coverage on my iPod.  I was watching them in the kitchen while attempting to be productive.  I had gone into another room to do something and came back to find Will attentively watching Countdown! 

When I was driving Will and a few of his friends to a birthday party the other day one of them noticed an Obama bumper sticker on a passing car.  Will then said "Oh yeah!  Well, I vote for George Bush!" and laughter erupted from the other 5 year old passengers.  Then his friend Josh started talking about how he would vote for John McCain but he lost!  

Growing up I always had a crush on Michael J. Fox, but I never imagined I'd be raising an Alex P. Keaton!!!

This gave me goosebumps! Even a 5 year old knows when something is good!

Keep this boy away from any image or video of Mitt Romney.

In defense of my grandson - Alex P. Keaton would not be watching Keith Olbermann, he is also the baby who could serve up a great raspberry at the sound of George Bush's name and last February when he was watching primary results told us all that "he's crazy for Barack Obama!".

Obviously that wasn't Bridget - that was me - a little technologically challenged, but a nice person....
