I saw this but I could not get away with posting it.

Why don't I ever get asked these stupid ppl questions? I could have had so much fun with it.

And I would hope that if I was asked my opinion on something I didn't know enough about, I would have the presence of mind to keep my mouth shut.

Seriously! My favorite radio show host (not political, but he is a man with an opinion) has been very careful about that, but finally this week, he'd had enough, and he called the republicans racists.

Just wait until there's a woman in that seat.

I had to resist replying to one of my employees today who did that "I want to hit both sides, they should be cooperating, blah blah" thing, because I try to remain aware that I am the one in the power position and I don't want to push my beliefs on people who might feel threatened in their position if they disagree. And I'm one of the biggest political equivocators on the planet, normally. But I want to say "No, not this time! It's really just the one POV this time causing the problems, honestly. The Democrats and Independents cannot honestly be expected to roll over and be flattened every single time in these disputes; it just can't work that way. Once in a while they have to be right, and you have to admit they're right."

Rick Mercer did a special for the CBC back in 2000 called "Talking to Americans" that mined the same vein. The part where Mike Huckabee congratulated Canada on preserving its "National Igloo" was both funny but also very, very scary. You can find it on Youtube if your interested.

As a small aside it was so popular in Canada it received a Gemini Award nomination that year, but Mercer declined it due to 9/11 happening.

People like this need to shut up and stop making the rest of us look bad.

I had a conversation with a friend a while back, explaining to her that Obamacare was actually called the Affordable Care Act, and that Obamacare is just a popular nickname. She didn't seem to believe me. But then again, she basically insulted me for my political beliefs in general. This is why I don't talk politics with anyone.
