14. My parents voted for Barack Obama today! This is the first time they are voting for a democrat.
I know, I know, they are idiots for having supported Bush. Its more important that THEY know they were idiots. They are pretty simple people who would get all of their information from Fox News and didn't have internet to check up on things until a few years ago. Suddenly, they start reading blogs, start double checking those stupid RW email smear campaigns on Snopes and realize that they have been lied to about so many things. Its like they have finally woken up! They were between Hillary and Barack until last week, but finally made up their minds. Not only is this the first democrat vote they have cast, but its also the first time they have voted in a primary.

I'd like to add that my 83 year old, Mexican grandmother and all of my West Texas family (they're farmers) have already voted for Barack. They proudly refer to themselves as Yellow Dog Democrats and they are absolutely not Hillary haters nor are they latte drinkers. None of them have college degrees.
