Help with dealing with the rare obnoxious rightwing relative on Thanksgiving

Families all across the nation will sit down this Thanksgiving to a feast of turkey and pumpkin pie and to watch the Lions beat Green Bay, and we visit with family members we only see on holidays.

Although they are becoming scarcer, you may find a rare relative or friend who is still a Republican, spouting off the latest misinformation, hate and outrageous lies they have picked up from listening to the likes of Limbaugh, Glenn Beck or – God forbid – Michael Savage. There is an antidote to that hate. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is offering a free survival kit to shut them down and get back to the cranberry sauce and the Lions.

The DCC is the official campaign arm of the Democrats in the U.S. House, and they are offering the DCCC “Thanksgiving Cheat Sheet” that offers a few basic and quick answers to shut them down.

Enjoy that turkey.

What makes a guest obnoxious? Perhaps it is when he or she points out another one of your lies and miss-statements.

Remember when you clearly stated that it was another in the long line of rightwing hate crimes when the guy was found hanged with the word "fed" written on his chest? Even when a poster pointed out that authorities had not ruled the death a suicide, you insisted that you had it right.

You had it wrong. Authorities announced last week that the death was part of suicide/homicide hoax.

It wasn't a rightwing murder. It wasn't a hate crime murder. It wasn't even a murder. Of course, your pre-conceived fantasies can't go very far if you have to rely on facts.

Can't wait to see how you spin this one.

Welcome back brett. Straighttalker, that’s a good one. You just now created it to take a shot at me and you accuse me of spin? That’s funny. Again, I have never lied. I understand an investigation ruled the Census worker’s death was a suicide. Can you show me where I posted that so I can correct that? I know I said it, somewhere, and I was wrong, But I need to correct it.

You did get something right, brett, when you said “the long line of rightwing hate crimes.” That’s why the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Homeland Security Department said rightwing hate groups are on the rise.

Landmark legislation to fight climate change

Would that have anything to do with all th e-mails released.

Just 25% have a positive view of the Republican Party.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday 11-25-09 shows that 26% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15. This is the second straight day at -15, the lowest Approval Index rating yet measured for President Obama


In a Rasmussen Reports poll taken after the House of Representatives passed health-care reform by the narrowest of margins last Saturday night, 54% of likely voters say they are opposed to the plan with only 45% in favor. Furthermore, in the all-important category of unaffiliated voters, 58% oppose the bill. That's one of the reasons why so many moderate Democratic House members opposed it.

The CNN poll also shows that in addition to health care, a majority of Americans disapprove of how Mr. Obama is handling the economy, Afghanistan, Iraq, unemployment, illegal immigration and the federal budget deficit. Put simply, there isn't a critical problem facing the country on which the president has positive ratings.

Just 25% have a positive view of the Republican Party. This

Unless Mr. Obama changes his approach and starts governing in a more fiscally conservative, bipartisan manner, the independents that provided his margin of victory in 2008 and gave the Democrats control of Congress will likely swing back to the Republicans, putting Democratic control of Congress in real jeopardy

I'm lucky then I don't have any right wingers in my family or at least I don't spend the holidays with them.. To hate the USA I believe a poll from "Teen People" more than some shit from Rasmussen Reports.
