Thanksgiving Family Arguments – Politics Edition
Yes, it’s that time of year again. The time when we gather round a roasted bird and give thanks for our blessings…and then violently argue over whether Obama is the anti-Christ or not. Yes folks, I’m talking about politics. Or rather, how much we all love to fight about them.
A quick search on Twitter shows just how common this argument is. And it’s HILARIOUS. This is why I hate arguing about politics. No one ever wins these arguments either. A turkey and wine soaked screaming match with your racist grandpa isn’t going to convince him that Obama isn’t a Muslim terrorist any more than he’s going to convince you that Sarah Palin isn’t actually a lizard person.
Some people enjoy a good political spar with their relatives. To these people, I say bravo on being patient and level-headed. For the rest of us, there is Twitter, where we can bitch to our heart’s content. Below are my favorite Thanksgiving family political arguments-related tweets (damn that’s a mouthful). These make me thankful that my family are sane booze loving people. As they should be.
