The insidious republican conspiracy to infiltrate old minds


My grandmother has been sick recently and spent two weeks in the hospital. Since she was laying around in bed for a couple of weeks they didn't want to let her go straight home. She's lived alone since my grandfather died the year I was born so, they put her in a nursing home to do therapy for a week before she goes home.

She isn't the type of person you'd find in a nursing home. She's 80 or so but she acts like a 20 year old but to combat boredom she even plays bingo and other games with everyone else. That's totally not her type of game, but whe there's nothing else to do, I suppose bingo starts to look pretty cool.

Today she played a goofy game with pennies. I didn't really get the details of the game, but the gist of it was that everyone was given 15 pennies and they went around asking questions and if they got them wrong they lost some amount of pennies and whoever had the most left at the end won, and got to keep the pennies as well.

She was doing pretty well until the nurse asked the last question. The question was "Have you ever voted for a democrat?"

My grandmother's answer was "yes" and the nurse said that was wrong and took her pennies away.

Now what kind of sense does that make?

We both had a laugh about it and joked that the pennies were probably furnished by the republican party in order to influence the old vote.
