Demonstrating A Remarkably Lucid Understanding Of Our Government

Overheard yesterday:

Maddie: “It’s too cold to open our neighborhood pool in
May. I’m going to write to Congress and tell them to make it
a law that pools can’t open until June.” (Way to avail
yourself of our governmental system, baby. Due process, or
something, at its finest.)

Cora: “Why don’t you write to
President Obama instead?”

Maddie (scornfully): “Because, Cora, President Obama only
carries out existing laws. Congress actually makes the laws. All
those guys working together, they make the laws.” (I am very
impressed you knew this, baby. I didn’t think you were
actually listening when I went off on that topic a few months ago.)

Cora (doubtfully): “It seems to me you’d have an easier
time getting one guy to do what you want than asking a bunch of
Congressmen to do what you want. That’ll never work.”
(Insert sadly true joke here.)

Oh, Cora, when you run for President I will vote for you. A lot.
Just be nice to your big sister on the other side of the Hill.
