Mary's Kittens

Little Mary had a box of newborn kittens that she was trying to give away, so she had them out on the street corner with a sign, 'FREE KITTENS,' next to them.

Suddenly a big line of big black cars drove up, with a policeman on a motorcycle in front. The cars all stopped, and a tall man stepped out from the biggest car. Why, it's Senator Obama! "Hi, little girl. What do you have there in the box?," he asked.

'Kittens,' little Mary said. 'They're so small, their eyes are not even open yet.' "What kind of kittens are they?," he asked.

'They're Democrats,' said little Mary. The tall man smiled, returned to his car, and all the cars drove away.

Sensing a good photo opportunity, Sen. Obama called his campaign manager and told him about the little girl and the kittens. It was planned that they would return the next day, have all the media there, and tell everyone about these great kittens.

The next day, little Mary is standing out on the corner with her box of kittens and the 'FREE KITTENS' sign. Again, the big motorcade of black cars pulled up. With the black cars were news vans and trucks from ABC, NBC, CBS, BET, and CNN. For some reason, FOX NEWS was not there.

Everyone had their cameras ready and then, Sen. Obama got out of his limo and walked up to little Mary. "Now, don't be frightened," he said, "I just want you to tell all these nice news people just what kind of kittens you're giving away today."

'Yes sir,' Mary said. 'They are all REPUBLICAN kittens.'

Taken by surprise, Sen. Obama said, "But yesterday, you told me that they were all DEMOCRATS."

Little Mary said, 'Yes, I know. But today, they have their eyes open!
