Car Ride with the Bipartisan Household

Boy Wonder: I voted for Obama at school. He wants to take the money from the rich people and give it to the poor people. That's nice.
Miss M: It's not polite to talk about who you voted for.
500Jerk: Who told you that?
Miss M: Daddy.
500Jerk (snorts): Figures.
500Jerk Spouse: So did your teacher tell you that sometimes the rich people get fed up with the government taking their money and don't want to work anymore? Then the rich people don't make any money and there's no money to give to the poor people. In fact, everyone's poor! What do you think of that?
(A pause; silent confusion emanates from the back seat.)
500Jerk: I don't think they tell them that at school.
500Jerk Spouse (snorts): Figures.
