You know...These elementary school kids chanting Obama songs are beginning to creep me out. I wouldn't mind it if I thought the kids were doing this on their own. But they sound too well rehearsed. They are being led, and they are chanting campaign slogans.

Seriously, what elementary school kid really cares about politics or is even aware of it? Maybe I was just too busy reading every book I could lay my hands on as a kid, but...I really didn't start paying attention to politics until I was in high school and approaching voting age. My parents were not political activists. We were always more interested in watching M*A*S*H reruns than in listening to speeches by politicians.

This makes me feel very uneasy. I keep listening to what they're saying, and all I can think of is my history books.
