    Flippant remarks have a way of haunting candidates, you know.

    This was the 30 years ago. The rules have changed since then.

    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.

    If Dad loses, that makes Mom, as next in line, “Dad” and Dad would become First Gentleman. You know – kinda like the potential Clinton scenario of last year’s presidential election.

    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

    Dads are not elected; they are dictators for life (or at least until you move out).

    Which is why it’s a good thing Dad didn’t have Twitter back then.

    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.
