Debate verdict: Obama less appealing than Legos

October 4, 2012

“Can I watch Lego German Army videos?” my 5-year-old son asked before dinner last night.

“President Obama is having a debate right now,” I responded. “Do you want to watch that?”

“Lego President Obama?”

“No — the REAL President Obama!”

“What’s President Obama?”

“He’s the leader of our country.”

“The whole town?”

“The whole United States!”

“So we have to do what he says?”

“Uh … yeah.”

My son paused, and I sensed that the politics lesson was over.

“Can I watch Lego German Army now?”

“Sure.”
