Breaking News: Zoey Makes Political Endorsement

I saw "Jesus Camp," so I realize that to some hardcore conservatives this video is akin to me watching small children speak in tongues, a proselytizing Army of God. Still, there's something about Zoey wearing my glasses as she announces her formal endorsement of Barack Obama that just gets me all choked up, a one woman, two-year old Army of Good. She's a smart cookie, and an integral part of America's political future...

Just in case anyone from the Obama political campaign is reading this, she also does a mean rendition of the will.i.am song, "Yes We Can." She is available for appearances throughout the month of July and only requires nonfat organic milk, blueberries and a non-stinky pair of princess slippers in her dressing room.

Porter was sitting on my lap when I clicked this and he made me replay it about, oh, 20 times. He's even trying his own rendition of "Obama, Obama, OH Yeah!" Zoey's got a fan! Maybe we can get them to perform a duet next time we get them together.

Okay, I've never posted before, but I read all the time. (I found your blog through Courtney at In(side) the Loop). Your Zoey is so adorable!! And I have a pretty darn cute 21 month old girl myself! Love your writing - I crack up all the time, and make my husband read it too! Good luck on the writing-for-money job journey! I'm rooting for you.

Where did I fail as a Mother and Grandmother? I can attest to the highest degree of cuteness quotient when The Zomeister chants, "Obama, Obama, Oh Yeah!" (and I never saw her do it with the glasses on)...BUT, but, but....WHY Obama? Why not Hillary (and yes, I know she is losing now-could it be because of,,,,,,YOU?!)? I just cannot believe that you and every woman isn't supporting Hillary-a chance for a WOMAN in the whitehouse-and a damn smart woman as well-one who has a Health Plan unlike some other candidates I could mention. O.K. I've had my say and I love you and Zoey to pieces but I do NOT supprot your political endorsements-no matter how adorable...and they are! Mom

Has CNN seen this? Far more entertaining than anything Wolf Blitzer and his "best political team on television" could possibly ever come up with!!!!!

I have teenagers ( and a little older ) and boy do I miss this age!

That is the cutest damn kid ever! I've been a lurker for a while since as a single childless New Yorker I feel like I shouldn't be here but you make me laugh everyday. I was worried when your blog disappeared so I am glad you are back and all is well.

P.S. I tagged you on my blog so people will be able to find you again and because I want to hear more funny stories!
