The local minister noticed a little girl standing outside of his
door with a basket of kittens.
"Hello, little girl, what do you have there?"
"These are my Democratic kittens," she replied.
Amused, the pastor said nothing. Two weeks later he saw the same little
girl with (apparently) the same basket of kittens.
"My, I see you still have your Democratic kittens.", he said.
"No, you see, these are Republican kittens," she answered.
"Two weeks ago they were Democratic kittens," he replied, puzzled.
"Two weeks ago they had their eyes closed."
