Every child knows the story of the Little Red Hen:
One day as the Little Red Hen was scratching in a field, she found a grain of wheat.
"This wheat should be planted," she said. "Who will plant this grain of wheat?"
"Not I," said the Duck.
"Not I," said the Cat.
"Not I," said the Dog.
"Then I will," said the Little Red Hen. And she did…
And the story goes on and on like this, where the duck, the cat, and the dog give no help to the Little Red Hen with the planting, the baking, the threshing…you know the deal.
Now, here’s the latest from the Presidential debate Wednesday night:
When asked if, as president, they would guarantee that American troops would be out of Iraq by the end of their first term (in 2013), here is what the brave Democrats had to say:
"I think it's hard to project four years from now," said Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois.
"It is very difficult to know what we're going to be inheriting," said Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.
"I cannot make that commitment," said former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina.
Maybe the Little Red Hen was a red because she was a Republican.
