McCain's Wife: Out of the Mouth of Babes

Children say the darndest things. While watching the political news with our teenager, he up and asks why we never see John McCain's wife. I tell him we see her all the time, and after getting a quizzical look in response, rewound the DV-R of that night's appearance by John's blond beauty, and identified her for him: "That's his wife there, the blond in front. The blond behind him is his daughter."

There is nothing like a child's look that innocently, respectfully, says "Don't put me on, you're full of shit". "No really, that's his wife." His doubting face turned into a half embarrassed smile as he admitted "I thought that was his daughter, and the other one was his granddaughter."

It makes one wonder what other honest assessments we'd get from children announcers we'd never get from the pros.
