Sure, President Obama may have given millions of people healthcare in this country, but did he invent the Super Soaker? Mitt Romney may have made more money than in all the Monopoly sets in my house, but I would like to see him invent the Pumponator. So forget Obama vs Romney, the real battle is Lonnie Johnson (inventor of the Super Soaker) vs Dave Yearick (inventor of Djubi) or Lexi Glenn (seventh grader and inventor of the Pumponator) vs 9-year old Seth and 7-year old Alexia Kempe (inventors of the HoodiePet).

Come On, How Incredible is That Young Inventor of The Year Category?
Holy crap, those 9 year old kids are already smarter and more successful than I could ever hope to be. This is exactly why I am showing this to my kids and having them vote with me. Perhaps this will be the inspiration for them to finally invent all those cool toys they are always talking about, become successful inventors…and then support me in my old age.
Vote Now, While The Campaign Is Still Super Pac Free
I know, that “other” November election is grabbing all the headlines, but you actually need to wait until November to vote in that one. With the TAGIE Awards you can vote right now, and I suggest you do as I just heard a rumor that a Super PAC is going to start running attack ads on the Super Soaker. Vote now before things get ugly!
