Colorado youngster Abigael Evans represented many when she famously choked up about being “tired of Bronco Bama and Mitt Romney” on camera the other day, according to NPR, which issued an apology to the splotchy-eyed 4-year-old this week.
“On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets, we apologize to Abigael and all the many others who probably feel like her,” NPR wrote in a statement on its blog. “We must confess, the campaign’s gone on long enough for us, too. Let’s just keep telling ourselves: ‘Only a few more days, only a few more days, only a few more days.’ Meanwhile, have any of your children said something like that? Do you feel like Abigael? Tell us in the comments thread.”
The video, which was posted on YouTube on Tuesday, has already received more than 1.5 million views. Not bad during a week in which millions on the east coast had no power. Don’t worry too much about Abigael, though. NPR reporter Grace Hood tweeted a reassuring snapshot of the red-haired child on Wednesday:
I suppose all she needed was to cry it out, and perhaps we could all benefit from doing the same.
