Little Mary Pat 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 big line of big black cars came up with a policeman on a motorcycle in front.
The cars all stopped and a tall man stepped out from the biggest car.
It's Senator Obama.
"Hi, little girl, what do you have there in the box?" he asked. "Kittens" Little Mary Pat says. "They're so small, their eyes are not even open yet."
"What kind of kittens are they?" he asked.
"Democrats" says Little Mary Pat.
The tall man smiled, returned to his car and they 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 Mary Pat is standing out on the corner with her box of kittens with the "FREE KITTENS" sign and the big motorcade of black cars pulled up with all the vans and trucks from ABC, NBC, CBS, BET and CNN but no FOX for some reason..
Everyone had their cameras ready and then, Sen. Obama got out of his limo and walked up to Little Mary Pat.
"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," Mary Pat said, "The are all REPUBLICAN kittens."
Taken by surprise, Sen. Obama said, "But yesterday, you told me that they were DEMOCRATS."
Little Mary Pat says, "Yes, I know. But today, they have their eyes open."
