Little Suzy had a box of very small kittens that she was trying to give away. So she had them out on the street corner with a sign "FREE KITTENS" next to them.
Suddenly a long line of big black cars drove up, lead by a policeman on a motorcycle. The cars stopped and a tall man stepped out from the biggest car.
"Hi, little girl, what do you have there in the box?" he asked. "Kittens," little Suzy says. "They're so small, their eyes are not even open yet. "What kind of kittens are they?" he asked. "Democrats," says Little Suzy.
The tall man smiled, returned to his car and drove away. Sensing a good photo opportunity, Sen. Obama called his campaign manager and told him about the little girl and the kittens. It was planned that they would return the next day, have all the media there and tell everyone about these great kittens.
The next day, Little Suzy is standing out on the corner with her box of kittens with the "FREE KITTENS" sign and the motorcade of black cars pulled up with all the vans and trucks from ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN. Everyone had their cameras ready. Sen. Obama got out of his limo and walked up to Little Suzy.
"Now, don't be frightened," he said, "I just want you to tell all these nice news people just what kind of kittens you're giving away today. "Yes sir," Suzy said, "The are all REPUBLICAN kittens."
Taken by surprise, Sen. Obama said, "But yesterday, you told me that they were DEMOCRATS." Little Suzy says, "Yes, I know. But today, they have their eyes open."
