Every familys got one, at least. That hardcore conservative who makes every Thanksgiving get-together a nightmare by sounding off, unprompted, on how liberals are ruining this country with their taxing and their spending and their gay-marrying, and how back in my day blah blah blah.
Usually you just keep your head down and stare into your turkey and try not to make eye contact with anyone. Then the next morning in the shower you remember what you should have said in response.
But this years going to be different. Why? Because here at MSNBC, weve anticipated crazy Uncle Garys top talking points, and provided you with the concise, factual, snappy rebuttals you need to finally shut him up once and for all.
So without further ado, we present: MSNBCs Top 10 Comebacks For Use Against The Family Conservative

In some families, only one comeback is used: “Obama is god. So, your point is invalid.”
Actually I’m the one who refuses to talk politics at most family gatherings. I will talk about things like prepping because even if they are brain damaged liberals, they are family and I don’t want them to die or have to depend on me for survival.
I think I make them more nervous by not arguing politics with them.
Better put on your hip-waders before reading.
OMG, this premise behind this is just so funny. They are projecting.
In general, conservatives tend to keep their opinions to themselves at such gatherings. I do not suffer fools so I know I must do this.
I think the msnbc staff is projecting quite a bit here. Libs are usually the ones who can't hold their tongue.
File under “no liberal media bias”.
How about, I love you but we have strong disagreements on this. Let’s put politics aside for now and enjoy our family and not let disagreement and bad feeling mar the day.
We’ve had extreme lefties at our dinner and I hate when they bring up politics because my husband and son will argue with them, and it makes me miserable. I tell husband and son please please don’t start on a political discussion with them, but they do.
No Politics. No Religion. There’s a good reason for that rule.
It’s one thing to have an individual wrote an essay like this, it’s another thing for it to be done by the entire network on behalf of the Obama administration. How Soviet.
Rational argument with retarded children is futile.
That’s been my observation as well.
... and great tag line.
Ha ha! That's a good one. My retort would be..."Yeah? Well so has the Bible and for a lot longer than some scientists trying to justify their existence."
This illustrates why I’m starting to think that secession is the only answer. They can go to h___, I’m already in Texas.
This must be MSLSD's version of a wet dream. Any conservative who has been one for a while could argue better than the caricature they represented in this piece.
Most of my friends are through my church and are “right” minded, or at the least libertarian.
My sister in law is by her account pro-choice. I asked her what the baby did to deserve it and she clammed.
