They were due....: Thank you, Berkeley, California. I knew I could count on your to piss me off. Six-year olds are now protesting for peace. SIX-YEAR OLDS! They don't have a clue what they're talking about!
Later, when asked if she could name the president of Iraq, Celia, stumped, turned to a friend and asked, “Is it a boy or a girl?” Her friend, equally puzzled, responded, “I think it’s a boy.”
Truly sad. As Berkeley College Republican Andrea Irvin put it:
“It is incredible that these parents are using their children to advance their political agendas. That these teachers are indoctrinating the young children is unconscionable. They are using the kids as puppets.”
(Thanks to Misha for this one.)
