August 2 On this day in history sunshine, lollipops and politicians, erk

Here we are again, dear reader, morning rolls around with yet another date of events and more weak wintery sun dribbling through the clouds while we shiver.
The shivering is actually from the politicians attempting to pucker up to the poor innocent babies; oh the humanity...!

Sunshine, lollipops! I LOVE that song; by Leslie Gore.

Why do politicians think it's acceptable to hold and kiss babies? Why do they think this will boost their votes? I certainly wouldn't want some stranger smacking big, slobbery kisses onto my baby's cheeks. Let them earn their votes by keeping their campaign promises.
