Last week I picked up a copy of Schoolhouse Rock: The Election Collection. I thought it would be fun to watch with the boys, but there was a surprise inside — a map of the US listing the number of electoral votes from each state, along with a set of red and blue stickers for keeping track on election night.
As a memorial to Tim Russert, who has been sorely missed in this campaign, I taped the map onto a white board that the boys have, and we followed along.
Wow, I’m really a nerd.
