Happy Thanksgiving!

While it's probably too late for most of you, here is an excerpt of talking points for dealing with you conservetard relatives:
Talking Turkey: Ten Myths Conservatives Believe About Progressives

1. Liberals hate America.

For the record: Liberals love America. In fact, what makes us liberals is that we actually read and believed all those pretty words in the Declaration of Independence about "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," and in the Bill of Rights about freedom of speech, religion, assembly, privacy, and all the rest of it.
4. Liberals hate our troops.

We love our troops. We love them so much that we want them brought home safe and sound to their families, as soon as possible.

5. Liberals are a bunch of elitists who hate decent working- and middle-class Americans. opposed to those sainted corporate men-of-the-people who fly around in private jets and pull down eight-figure salaries while closing plants and cutting 10,000 jobs at a time. That's what real populism looks like, you betcha.

Liberals are funny people. We think that sending well-paid American jobs overseas is a bad idea. We think the minimum wage should be big enough to cover life's necessities, with some left over. We think it's insane that over half the bankruptcies in the country are due to lack of adequate medical insurance.
The whole post is great, I urge you to read it all.

At least you'll be ready for Xmas dinner.
