Another Republican for Obama

My sister-in-law Linda told a story about her mom and step-dad’s voting experience. Normally they cancel each other out — he’s a Republican, she’s a Democrat. But Jack’s suffering from Alzheimer’s, and when Rita was helping him vote, he told her he was voting for Obama. “But Jack,” she said. “He’s the Democrat, and you’re a Republican. Are you sure?”
He pointed to Obama’s name again. “I want to vote for him.”
Against her better judgment, she pulled the lever for Obama.
On the way home, Jack was more himself, and he asked Rita who he voted for.
“Um, you told me you wanted to vote for Obama,” Rita said.
Poor Jack.
