"You know that I'm a Democrat, don't you?"The girl got red-faced and flustered as everyone turned to see what would happen next saying,
"Well, I don't think it matters whether you are Democrat or Republican, the jokes are still funny."I asked Mother what the joke was and it was something about how there will now be watermelon and fried chicken in the Rose Garden.
Mother was still upset when I went to pick her up and she said to me, "Obama is probably more aquainted with haute cuisine than those rednecks back there."
