A friend of mine has a 7-year old daughter. She likes Bush for November because he is handsome, and dislikes Kerry because he is pompous (OK as far as it goes). Last Sunday’s NYT Magazine had a cover story on the issue of Kerry takign communion. She asked her mother what it was about, and she fair-mindedly explained that Sen. Kerry was a Catholic, but some bishops and priests did not think his beliefs were all that they should be.
Girl (brow darkening): “Does he think Christmas is about getting?”
My reaction: “No, he thinks marriage is.”
