Monday Teeny Poll

By Glinda


Last week’s poll about traveling “extensively” with children sparked quite a heated, yet always civil and urbane debate. God how I love our commenters! Eighty-one percent of the respondents said that yes, parents should travel as much as time and budget should allow, while only eighteen percent disagreed. Looking back, I should have qualified the word “extensively” or even better, used a different phrase.

This week I’m going to chart some territory in celebrity waters. On the Larry King show, Christina Aguilera said in an interview that she was going to be in a “Rock the Vote” ad, along with her infant son Max, swaddled in the American flag. She defended the decision, saying that her son was going to be exposed to the press anyway, so why not in a manner of her choosing?

    Seriously, does anyone really become inspired to vote because they see a celebrity ad encouraging them to do so?

  2. Brian's Babymomma Says:

    Yes. Just not the people we want to see voting.

    It’s really a violation of protocol to use the American flag as clothing. I mean, a SERIOUS violation. And we all know what babies do to their clothes anyway.

  4. La Petite Acadienne Says:

    Mon dieu. I was just looking at the photo, and one of their dogs appears to outweigh the missus by a good 25lbs. That’s rather disconcerting.

  5. Carol Says:

    I’m sure I’ll care someday – in a vague “isn’t that Max guy that was thrown out of the hot club the son of somebody famous?? Oh, yeah. That singer who couldn’t decide how to spell her name…Chris somebody or other…”

    Otherwise, no. Don’t use the flag and don’t use your children in that way. One is just wrong and the other will mess him up and make you look pathetic.

  6. La BellaDonna Says:

    Does this idiot really think wrapping her infant in the American flag is going to get people to vote for anything – anything other than never EVER seeing her pull a stunt like that again.

    Newsflash, Ms. Aguilera: go get a baby blanket instead. That’s not what the flag is for, nor what it’s about. You have a need to be “cute” “irritating” and “exploitive of your children”, then have Makeup dress him up as Uncle Sam. At least that way, fewer people will want to punch you through their TV sets.
