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
"And what kind of kittens are they?"
"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"
