Elizabeth Evans says, "This is my four year old daughter, Abigael, after hearing one too many mentions of the election."
"The election will be over soon," Elizabeth tells her child in the video.

Maybe the kid is being exposed to a bit too much media in general?
Her and me both.
Every four years for the rest of this little lady’s life.
And the names may change but it might as well be the same two people running.
Yeah, things like invading other countries or changing the face of the Supreme Court are small potatoes.
In the grand scheme? Yep.
That’s exactly how I feel.
Wait — you mean I could have voted for Bronco Bama instead?
Damn. Shouldn’t have voted early.
Looks like a proto-neo-populist republican in the making. Entering her into the 2028 campaign database now. . .
Me too, Abigael, me too.
I can’t stop weeping either.
Someone should make her a My Little Pony “Bronco Bama” figure to play with.
And what would his cutie mark be?
The Obama logo, of course!
Of course, of course.
Bronco Bama is my write-in candidate this time, with Marvel the Mustang as his running mate.
AHHHH! Thanks, Mark! Now I’ve fragments of his theme song in my head.
“Marvel the Mustang
He’s almost for real
You saddle him up
With spurs on your heels . . .”
“No winding . . . (oddly long pause) . . . no batteries.”
A child of the tearful John Boehner?
I dub thee “Honey Boo Hoo”.
Missed it! Someone already got BroncoBama.com
So close :(
She’s tired of the elections or tired of her mom forcing her to repeat a few lines for a youtube video?
Young lady, I feel your pain. And your mother’s breasts.
Pretty stale stuff there, mate.
He’s got some Tippy Canoe material that’ll have you jitterbugging like it’s V-E Day. Which was last year.
Yeah, I miss him too.
For the last fourteen years, I’ve allowed NPR and whatever station carries it to have a more-or-less uninterrupted feed into my head. That ended this year because of election coverage and “sh*t politicians say”. I’m really just sick of it. It’s always been a great pleasure when one of my walks happens to coincide with Morning Edition/All Things Considered cranking up, but when the program starts with the latest Romney/Obama he said/she said mudfest, like it does almost every day, it just ruins it.
My son used to say he hated a local furniture store. We figured out that they sponsored Barney on PBS and that when their sponsormercial came up it meant Barney went away.
I liked the furniture store for the same reason.
I live in Canada and I’m tired of it too! :-)
