Well, I know who the next president is going to be?

Our five year old grandson informed us today that the next president was going to be a woman. This really surprised me that he would even talk politics. I asked him what woman he was talking about and he said he couldn't remember her name. I took a stab at it and aske if her name was Sarah Palin. He brightened up and said 'yes, it's Sarah Palin'. He said his mommy told him that Sarah Plalin was going to be the the next president.

So, there you have it from the mouth of babes.

Does your 5 year old grandson know, that you call him a babe?
Honestly, I am sure most 5 year old children would be rather upset if they´re called a baby ;)

Hm and what does your posting prove?
Only that your 5 year old grandson is able to repeat things his mother told him.

If his mother had told him, Hillary Clinton will be next president, he would undoubtly have repeated this as well, without thinking twice;)

"Out of the mouth of babes" =/= "Everyone under the age of 7 is psychic."

Yes, because the stuff children say is ALWAYS true. I suppose it comes as no surprise coming from someone who likely believes that everything in the bible also happened.

(wiping away tear) Oh, man, these people are just too much. WHY, oh why, would she ever take a pay cut to be POTUS?! The news is reporting she made 12 million bucks last year.

I am so convinced! Thank you MsSophie! You just changed my life!

So, if I ask my five year old niece who she thinks the next president will and she says "Spongebob!" what am I to interpret then? You may argue that Spongebob could not run for president, but in my eye, Palin is about as legitimate a candidate as the sponge.

My friends five year old son said he was going to fly, he didn't!

It would take a lot of five year olds (mentality) to make her president, that's for sure. But I'm willing to bet her grandson has about the same grip in reality as Tea Partiers, the ones making Sarah a rich idiot.

Well, I guess your rapture that will be "any day now" isn't happening for a couple more years. It'll be even longer if Obama wins re-election.

Spongebob, despite being a cartoon character, is probably better qualified than Sarah Palin (lack of citizenship notwithstanding). At least he could display remarkable intelligence if required, something which seems to be beyond Sarah Palin's abilities.

He's not the only babe talking here.

Can you ask your Grandson what next week's lotto numbers are?

No seriously, what type of person thinks that a 5 year old is some sort of authority on future presidents? And you wonder why people laugh at you...

@ shadkat
Palin is about as legitimate a candidate as the sponge.

Or any sponge, for that matter, famous or not.

Congratulations, MsSophie. You've just discovered the process by which the Republican Party decides its policy positions: It asks a five-year-old.

I mean, how else does any rational adult explain them?

4/15/2010 5:04:58 AM


A little math: You're obviously not very bright now. So, if we take your intellect, and interpolate backwards to when you were 5, I fully expect to see that we can clearly see that you're a goddamned idiot.

4/15/2010 5:10:21 AM

Seriously? An adult told him something that he repeated and you find that amazing?

I once had a conversation with a 5 or 6 year old who said Bush Senior was going to win the election against Clinton and he got rather angry if anyone disagreed with him. After talking to him a bit I found out that he thought this because his dead father was pro Bush and he ended the conversation by saying that his father was rooting for him up in heaven. Which was a thought that made him rather animated about the whole thing. Despite how much he thought he wanted Bush to win, he was ultimately wrong because there was no basis for his opinion outside of the words and emotions he picked up from the people he looked up to. Which kids do all the time - No doubt, there are lots of children of die hard Obama fans who are going around telling people that he will win the next election. And that may be true, but it also may not be. So, I'm no more going to take predictions, about the future, from those easily impressionable children than I am from your grandson. And if you weren't such an idiot, you wouldn't do so either.

Sarah Palin won't last a month.

4/15/2010 5:18:06 AM


He's just repeating what mommy said. He's 5, ffs. :|

4/15/2010 5:32:02 AM


Uh...you said yourself he's just parroting what he heard his mother say. I'm not that impressed.

"his mommy told him that Sarah Plalin was going to be the the next president.

So, there you have it from the mouth of babes."

So, his mommy, out of whose mouth came this miraculous prediction, is a babe?

4/15/2010 5:45:16 AM


And to think, my five-year-old son says some pretty astute things, too. He decided to change a popular game to "Rock, Paper, Gator" one time (with, of course, the gator eating the rock...)

He actually waxes quite poetic about his imagination, my (deceased) father, and his younger brother.

One time I asked him what he'd want from the President, he said to be allowed to go to bed later and chocolate for every meal. And to think, that's probably more substantive than anything Palin has offered, politically.

4/15/2010 5:49:03 AM


How is this Fundie? Blind political wishful thinking maybe, but not necessarily Fundie.

4/15/2010 5:57:50 AM


In my personal experience, out of the mouths of babes you usually get a bunch of naive shit making no sense. It only gets worse if they have morons for parents as in this case.
For myself I hope the Republicans try to run with Palin. It will guarantee the Democrats get back in for another four years (unless there is a serious drop in intelligence in America before then).

4/15/2010 6:11:40 AM


I loved the 'wild stab' about which woman it would be!!! I mean, what ARE the odds!

4/15/2010 6:12:25 AM


Oh my God, this is terrible, a woman in the White House.

The rapture is so close now.

4/15/2010 6:14:41 AM


And you didn't chastize him because according to the bible, women should shut the fuck up and not be above men?

I'm surprised!
