    I have a stepdaughter, whom I met when she was two.  (She's 28 now.)  By that time, children are a little more tolerable.  They don't even smell anymore!

    And totally agree on RMoney's evilness - just objecting to the idea that awkwardness around babies is evidence for it.  There's lots of other evidence we can point to!

    •  Maybe because it's a visual symbol of hypocrisy? (6+ / 0-)

      As pointed out, you don't have kids, you don't particularly care for them and you don't pretend to. So yeah, you give off awkwardness vibes to the baby but you freely admit why. Although I suspect if you're here, you do care at least somewhat about what happens to that child in the future.

      Romney is the father of five and claims if he becomes President every kid will be better off. We believe he is lying about caring about (most of) them, and that his policies could make their lives much worse, and that's what makes him evil. So the babies' reaction and his awkwardness around them seem to confirm his hypocrisy, i.e. evilness. In the fine tradition of internet postings this gets abbreviated to crying baby = evil politician.

      (As for me, I get kinda uncomfortable around pregnant women, as though it's contagious! They might give off pheromones that will temporarily trick my mind into going all maternal. It doesn't help that my body is teasing me about whether or not I'm in menopause so I can finally relax. But once the kid is born I love holding them, as long as I can give it back! ;-)  )
