Why I fear for America

From Newsweek's 2004-08-02 The Kerry Kids (what do you know, Newsweek on MSNBC actually does have permalinks):

Ruth Steinbach, 60, was going to vote for Bush until she saw the Kerry girls. "I decided maybe I need to listen to this man." Back in Washington, the deficit map started to twitch.

That's how sixty-year-old adults select who to vote for? On the basis of how good the candidates' kids look?

Ms. Steinbach, hopefully you'll "keep deciding maybe" to do something else. Just remember that voting is dangerous. Those paper cuts can get infected - and don't get me started on the dangers of electronic voting!
