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.
