Democratic Pride It was the first day of school and the teacher thought she'd get to know the new kids by asking them their name and what their father does for a living. The first little girl says: "My name is Mary, and my daddy is a mailman who delivers mail to big government buildings." The next little boy says: "I'm Andy, and my Dad is a mechanic at a Porsche dealership." Then one little boy says: "My name is Johnny, and my father is a striptease dancer in a cabaret for gay men." The teacher gasps and quickly changes the subject. Later in the school yard, the teacher approaches Johnny privately and asks if it was really true that his Dad dances nude in a gay bar. He blushed and timidly said, "No, my dad raises money for the Democratic Party, but I was just too embarrassed to say it."
