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.
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.
Good point, I am the hostess, I have one church friend coming who is also conservative, my kids are conservative (by the grace of God) but all others wouldn’t vote for a Republican under any circumstances and luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv ubama.
Interesting comment from a ubama voter at the grocery store yesterday though holding forth in the baking aisle:
“My grandmother would be appalled that am buying Best Choice sugar, she only baked with C&H. If I bought food the way she did, I would have spent an extra $100. I can’t believe how expensive the food is. ‘they’ don’t care about people anymore. ‘they’ should tear the government down and start all over.”
I remember somewhere that BREVITY is the soul of wit. “Zingers” do not go on pontificating for 3 or 4 paragraphs.
I guess they won’t be publishing “Zingers” to use on rabid, leftist tree suckers.
LOL. Leftists need prepared talking points just to have dinner with their families. Can’t ANY of them think for themselves?
I like to read articles like this.
It shows what to expect of their talking points - and they are quite weak....if I do bump into any of those statements it will be fun to cut them down swiftly.
We are supposed to be going over my brother’s house for Thanksgiving this year - problem is they have this uber liberal couple that always shows up - I told my brother if they decide to go to his house - call me - we’ll stay home with our turkey - they can keep their turkeys.
How droll. I don’t know how these people can stand themselves.
Funny, it is just the opposite in my family. We have the one little liberal troll that every once in a while chimes in to tell us the virtues of her ideology. She is quickly shut down with real facts and she goes back to eating her free turkey.
