Obama-Romney Race Makes Little Girl Cry

+

From Influence Alley: From the mouths of babes: we dare you to watch this clip of a four-year-old Colorado girl crying from election fatigue and not feel that she has articulated what you're feeling from deep within your soul. According to KUSA-TV, Elizabeth Evans' daughter Abigael started crying after listening to NPR on the way to the grocery store, so she asked her why. "I'm tired of Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney," the girl gets through in between sobs.(Youtube)

From the mouths of babes: we dare you to watch this clip of a four-year-old Colorado girl crying from election fatigue and not feel that she has articulated what you're feeling from deep within your soul.

According to KUSA-TV, Elizabeth Evans' daughter Abigael started crying after listening to NPR on the way to the grocery store, so she asked her why. "I'm tired of Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney," the girl gets through in between sobs.

Her mother tries to soothe her: "It'll be over soon Abby, OK? The election will be over soon."

That's what we keep telling ourselves, too.

Update 2:32 p.m: So, NPR feels bad about making Abigael cry. From NPR's The Two-Way news blog: "On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets, we apologize to Abigael and all the many others who probably feel like her. We must confess, the campaign's gone on long enough for us, too." They also direct readers to NPR's politics blog with a warning that "it may make children cry."
