Flippant remarks have a way of haunting candidates, you know.
This was the 30 years ago. The rules have changed since then.
Who is Dad’s opponent and what are his views?

He can also take comfort in the fact that 6 year olds can’t vote.
“Let them (the people) eat cake.” was a famous flippant remark commonly attributed to the Queen of France, Marie Antoinette, during the severe bread shortage of 1788 that eventually resulted in the french people voting, “Couper sa tête!” (Off with her head) during the French Revolution a year later.
Throw the kid a cookie and your position as “Dad” is safe for another day.
Calvin, I got news for ya. The polls are fake.

I love “Dad’s” sense of humor. One time Cal was looking through old b/w photos and he asked when color photography was invented. His Dad told him that the world was in black and white and only turned into colors in the 1930’s
With Calvin as his kid, he will run unopposed!!!
arrogant little love child; isn’t he?

Which is why it’s a good thing Dad didn’t have Twitter back then.
I have the same attitude as Dad when it comes to politics.
I had a cousin who was not much older than Calvin around this time. Both her and her daya were big fans of C&H. She also pullude these polls on her dad. My uncle also had a good sense of humor and went along with her play.
Our mayor won 280 to 0 in the last election! (Nobody else wants the job!)
I wish it were 1998……..
Who’s Dad running against? Walter Mondale?
