My Kids' Suburban PA Catholic School Voted Big Time in Favor of Romney

Well, this is interesting. I know this is the silliest storyline ever written on this blog so why not double down, eh?

A few days ago I was practically suicidal that my son's second grade class voted in a classroom vote 13-5 in favor of Obama. I was really kinda' freaked out about it. I know I'm a bit unhinged but there's a lot riding on this. I was especially freaked out for a few reasons
1) We're in the all important Philadelphia suburbs.
2) We're a Catholic school!!!

And pardon me, but I can't see how Catholics who take the time and money to send their children to Catholic school could possibly vote for Obama. But anyway, the good news is that the entire school held a vote today and it turned out that Romney trounced Obama 225-117 or something close to that.

So it's just the second grade that's filled with a bunch of commie rugrats. Other than that, the school is good.

But it's interesting anecdata from a Catholic elementary school in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Do with it what you will. I hope this gives come modicum of comfort to your worried minds.



  1. The Catholic High School where I teach also did a mock election today. The results were 52% Romney, 46% Obama. Our county (in Texas, but urban) voted 50.5% Obama, 48.9% McCain in 2008. The results did surprise me a bit.

  2. At my children's school is was Obama- 23, Romney 143. This was in Northern VA.

  3. Even after the election, sigh, I have to share (in case it makes you feel any better about these kids).

    My neighbor (not Catholic, but not Obama supporters) was explaining to her 5- and 6-year olds about the election.

    The 6-yo said he'd vote for Obama "Because if he loses he won't have a job or a house and that would be very sad."

    The 5-yo said "I'd vote for Obamahamama because his name is more funner to say."

    So, there you have it, the political decision making of the young... Hmmm, perhaps issues as deep led to the results last night?
