A pretty little girl named Suzy was standing on the sidewalk
in front of her home. Next to her was a basket containing a
number of tiny creatures; in her hand was a sign announcing,
Suddenly a line of big black cars pulled up beside her. Out
of the lead car stepped a tall, grinning man. "Hi there,
little girl, I'm President Obama. What do you have in the
basket?" he asked. "Kittens." little Suzy said. "How old are
they?" asked Obama. Suzy replied, "They're so young, their
eyes aren't even open yet." "And what kind of kittens are
"Democrats," answered Suzy with a smile.
Obama was delighted. As soon as he returned to his car, he
called his PR chief and told him about the little girl and
the kittens. Recognizing the perfect photo op, the two men
agreed that the president should return the next day, and,
in front of the assembled media, have the girl talk about
her discerning kittens.
So the next day, Suzy was again standing on the sidewalk
with her basket of "FREE KITTENS" when another motorcade
pulled up, this time followed by vans from ABC, NBC, CBS and
CNN. Cameras and audio equipment were quickly set up, then
Obama got out of his limo and walked over to little Suzy..
"Hello, again," he said, "I'd love it if you would tell all my
friends out there what kind of kittens you're giving away."
"Yes sir," Suzy said. "They're Republicans." Taken by surprise,
the president stammered, "But... but.... yesterday, you told me
they were DEMOCRATS." Little Suzy smiled and said, "I know. But
today, they have their eyes open."
