Vote, vote baby

The four of us went to the polls today, and I hoped to incorporate a teeny Civics lesson, if only to offset the Spongebob and Halloween candy.
Me: Ok guys, who can tell me why we’re voting today?
Little: I wanna press the buttons.
Big: Actually, I think I should press the buttons. He got to the last time we rode the elevator in 2007.
Little: I can press Daddy’s buttons, and you can press Mama’s.
Mister: I don’t know if they’ll even LET ya’ll press the buttons. This is a serious place, like church. You have to be quiet.
Mister: Because people are concentrating on making their choices. It’s a big deal. So, who knows who’s running for governor?
Me: Nikki Haley and Charlie Shaheen.
Me: Vincent who?
Mister: Vincent Shaheen, not Charlie.
Me: Oh, I was thinking of Charlie Sheen! HA! Get it? ‘Cause he’s been in the news a lot lately too.
Big: Is Charlie Sheen our governor?
Mister: Damn you, Susan B. Anthony.
