In Which We Learned About The Electoral Process.

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.

  1. oof- your boys are so cute! And i’ll have you know that our household colored our own electoral maps. Guthrie’s was way cooler than mine as it was not all red and blue. Go figure.

  2. Maybe that’s the way it should be? Allow a few more voices — or colors — into the process . . .

    Your kid is a visionary.
