Ben Domenech has written an awesomely cranky prebuttal to Barack Obama’s looming War On Thanksgiving Dinner’s pro-Obamacare agitprop tomorrow… and I’m not going to quote from that. I’m going to quote this:
I can’t believe President Obama made me write this, or made you have to read it. Come on, people, it’s the holidays – if you really can’t take a few days off from partisan politics, maybe it’s time to admit you have a problem. So please, do us all a favor, and ignore The Man’s push to spend Thanksgiving dinner talking about entitlement programs as our eyes glaze over. These administration folks don’t respect you – they lied to you in their talking points for years, and even now apparently think you’re too dumb to even talk to your family without their help. So if you find that as you ask for the gravy that you’re talking more about your BFFs Chait, Cohn, and Pollack than you do about friends you know in real life, may I respectfully suggest you consider making a New Year’s resolution to get a life outside of politics. Trust me: it’ll give everyone else something to be thankful about.
I endorse this, and I also want to note: Barack Obama is not worth making your mom cry. Or swear. Or making it impossible to have a civil conversation with your aunt, ever again, for the rest of your lives. And if you willing to take that risk anyway, then to quote a man I never really expected to quote… I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ: think it possible that you may be mistaken.
