The Hairy Truth About Politics

The results are in. Barack Obama won in a landslide.

The Illinois senator won't get any delegates, however. This election took place at my son’s elementary school. Just like Puerto Rico, the votes from Mrs. Keeton’s class won’t count in November.

Nevertheless, the kindergarteners could tell us something about the art of impression management.

John McCain's negatives start right at the top – of his head. According to my 6-year-old pundit, the majority of kindergartners in southern Indiana are simply uncomfortable voting for a bald candidate.

This could be a hairy situation. As you know, Indiana is a battleground state.

Once word leaks out, it won’t be long before CNN polls the electorate about the relative positives and negatives of wearing a ball cap.

Of course, I’m just having a little fun. But before you completely dismiss this election’s significance, you should see the latest numbers from Scribner Middle School regarding Sarah Palin’s glasses.
