Girl driven to tears by election coverage overkill

Posted: Updated:

A four-year-old Colorado girl is so tired of hearing about the presidential election it drove her to tears.

Abigael Evans and her mother were listening to NPR Tuesday when the girl started tearing up. When her mother asked why she was crying, she said, "Just because I'm tired of Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney."

NPR wrote an apology note to Abigael entitled, "Dear little girl: Sorry we made you cry about 'Bronco Bamma' and Mitt Romney."

The note went on to say: "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.'"

NPR also sent the girl an NPR pin to smooth things over.
