I must admit that the first time the words "Barack Obama" came out of Jackson's mouth, I was stunned. He saw a picture of him in a storefront window and knew exactly who he was. We then talked about John McCain, Bob Barr, Ralph Nader, Chuck Baldwin, and Cynthia McKinney.
He loves talking about Presidents. He's certain that Jesus was the first President.
Two days ago I was watching GMA when Jackson came downstairs to join me.
Jackson: That's Barack Obama.
Jackson: He doesn't listen to God.
Jackson: He doesn't. He doesn't love God and he doesn't listen to Him.
Me: Mhmm. Who told you that?
Jackson: My Dad.
Me: Aha. So your Daddy is voting for John McCain?
Jackson: Yes. He's going to let us keep our guns.
Me: I see.
This morning, GMA again. An anti-McCain commercial came on declaring that John McCain does not support higher wages for women.
Jackson: This is soooo confusing!
Me: (big smile) Yes. Yes it sure is.
