NPR has issued a formal apology to a tearful 4-year-old after learning she is tired of hearing about president, quote “Bronco Bamma...” and Mitt Romney...

VIA NBC “Today”: “I'm tired -- I'm tired of bronco bamma and Mitt Romney.”
HOST: “That's why you're crying? Awww....”

Apparently, Abigael Evans of Fort Collins, Colorado was in the car with her mom listening to NPR when all of a sudden, she burst into tears.

As the video goes on, you can hear how her mother tries to console the young girl.

MOM: “Aww... it’ll be over soon Abby. The election will be over soon Abby.”

Abigail’s mother posted the video on YouTube and it went viral almost immediately. In a matter of just three days, it already had more than 1.5 million views.

The staff over at NPR saw the video and said, ‘Boy do we feel bad now.’ They issued this formal apology:

“On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets, we apologize to Abigael and all the many others who probably feel like her. 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."

The hosts of CNN’s “Starting Point” also sympathized with Abby, but one identified what she thinks Abby’s true concerns were...

“What clearly happened was that her mom was listening to the news and not her favorite music or whatever the child wanted to be listening to. This is why she hates the elections. Exactly.”

Abigail’s mother told KUSA that the two listened to Neil Young on the way back from the store. We think that’s a good choice.
