The phone just rang, and Alex ran to answer it. He listened for a minute and then hung it up. A little confused, I asked him who it was.

“It was some recording telling me to vote for George W. Bush.”
“So, are you going to vote for George W. Bush?”
“Nope, I’m going to vote for John Kerry.”
“Because he has a canary named Sunshine.”

The Kerry campaign would be thrilled to know they’ve got another seven-year-old voter on their rolls.
