Woe me baby :)

Texas has suddenly gotten very popular with the presidential front-runners. I am seeing TV ads, radios ads and there are rallies in my town. WOW!! This is so new to us.
I remember watching what all the supporters were doing for voters at the Iowa caucus and I am wondering if our nominees are as helpful and caring as they were then? I specifically remember hearing Obama volunteers baby sat for voters so they could vote so....
Obama supporters: I have 4 kids and there is no way I can get out to vote unless YOU can watch them (free of course, giving any money might be illegal)
Huckabee supporters: I know you value religion, so I know you understand I need to pray on my vote; but it is so hard to pray with four kids; someone needs to watch my kids, like YOU while I head out and pray (either church or Starbucks) on this crucial issue
Clinton supporters: I'd love to vote but wouldn't you know Tuesday is grocery day--anyway YOU can help a sister out and drive out to Whole Foods and pick up my items?
McCain supporters: My car needs its maintenance check and it MUST be done on voting day--I want to vote but who knows how long this could take unless of course YOU could bring my car in.

So I'm thinking if all four requests are met, I can vote for someone---I'll say the first person to respond to my requests ;)
And now I will wait patiently by the phone.....

That is hilarious. They totally need to throw you a bone, making your decision an easy one. *wink*

Hey there, found you through someone through someone, but somewhere along the way here I caught Ohio State in one of your comments?

Very funny post. I'll stop back to see if any of our worthy candidates stopped by to watch your kids so you can get out to vote. Being the positive person that I am (from Ohio) I'm sure one of them will. :)

I totally relate. When I found out that the democrats only accept caucus results in my state, I voted Democrat. I mean Seriously! I have two kids and a dog that needed to be put to sleep on that Saturday. Who has time for a caucus!

That's why you should vote for Ron Paul. He's an ob/gyn. =)Lots of kid experience....
