Politicians kissing babies is a campaign trail classic, but not every candidate's encounter with a kid turns out to be a a Kodak moment.
As we've examined before, for every smiling child with a shiny, new campaign button you get several more who are bored, confused or downright terrified by the person running for office. It may not make for a wonderful photo-op as planned, but thankfully for us, campaign photographers document the bad with the good.
The result? The hilarious moments captured below. Check out 19 examples of how much kids truly despise politics, as right they should. Vote on each picture and send us your own if your child has had a less-than-pleasant encounter with a politician.
