Did you catch the opening skit of Saturday Night Live last weekend, with Tina Fey playing her doppelganger Sarah Palin and Amy Poehler reprising her role as Hillary Clinton? Hysterical. And, sadly, dead-on. Watch it here.
Last weekend was a political one for us, with R. having the idea to have a cookie & juice stand outside our apartment building to raise money for Barack Obama’s campaign (“I’m a member of the Democrack party!” is her latest adorable malaprop). In 2 hours last Saturday afternoon, we raised $28 to send to the Obama campaign (R. kept a couple of quarters for herself). For the most part, the passerbys were very amused by the sight of my civic-minded 5-year-old selling Pillsbury cookies and juiceboxes on the corner of 1st Avenue, and many stopped to engage in political discussions with us. I like that my daughter’s first time having a lemonade stand took a political spin!
