I’m hosting for my son who is AF reserves, biracial yet conservative as the day is long, his girlfriend, who is for the most part, conservative; despite going through the university lib grist mill. In addition, my mostly liberal and quasi libertarian daughter and her Gary Johnson supporter husband (who happens to resemble “Steve” on the old “Married with Children” show). All in the presence of my once-blue-collar-democrat, now RABID conservative farm boy husband (both my children are his stepchildren) who has a gigantic temper and threatening presence of a pro wrestler. I converted him to conservatism-you know what they say about the ex-smoker and his/her vigor!
I have prepared a ten course meal so between that, deep frying the turkey, football and texas hold ‘em, I hope that will keep them pre-occupied to the extent that there will be no erruptions (there have been in the past.)
Wish me luck!
wish us all luck! When my dad gets a little wine in him he starts holding forth about how people don’t “appreciate” ubama, paying people “a living wage” and how it makes other countries feel unequal if they don’t have nuclear weapons....pretty maddening
