Run out and find me a four year old child

Senator Al Franken (Democrat, Minnesota) compares Republicans to four year old children. This created an unexpected chain reaction amongst Republicans, which culminated in Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell (Republican, Kentucky) threatening to “hold my breath until I turn blue.”

It all began On October 22, when MSNBC Host, Rachel Maddow, quoted Franken from his 2003 book “Lies (and the Lying Liars who tell them). Franken stated in an obscure passage “They don't get it. We love America just as much as they do. But in a different way. You see, they love America the way a four-year old loves her mommy. Liberals love America like grown-ups. To a four-year-old, everything Mommy does is wonderful and anyone who criticizes Mommy is bad. Grown-up love means actually understanding what you love, taking the good with the bad, and helping your loved one grow. Love takes attention and work and is the best thing in the world.”

The Quote was picked up picked up the next day, Tuesday, October 23, 2012, by Sean Hannity, who threw himself on the floor kicking and screaming.

By Wednesday, October 24, 2012 the quote had reached the campaign trail, when upon hearing the quote Vice Presidential Nominee, Paul Ryan, upon hearing the quote started to shriek, uncontrollably then ultimately took his campaign and went home.

Then finally on Thursday, October 25, 2012, when Senator McConnell heard the quote he said that he had had enough and unless it stopped he would hold his breath until he turned blue. Then he puffed up his cheeks and held his breath.

This reporter attempted to reach Presidential Candidate, Mitt Romney for a comment, but he was in the middle of a “time-out.”
