Obama: I'm Just Too Darn Non-Ideological and Pragmatic | Main | Ace of Spades' Talking Points for Talking With Your Obnoxious Progressive Family Members About Obamacare This Thanksgiving
November 25, 2013

As In Every Year Past, Obama's Elder Minions Urge Lesser Minions to Fight With Their Families At Thanksgiving Dinners

It truly is insidious, I think, this devotion to cause such that one would seriously -- earnestly! -- urge others to fight with family in order to advance a political goal.

It's not just about the casual denigration of the family in favor of the Real Family, which is of course like-minded socialists in the Progressive Cult. It is that, but it's not just that.


It's also this idea that a person's highest aspiration is to be... A telemarketer. Or, as there's nothing "tele-" about picking fights with your family in face-to-face meetings, an epimarketer, then.

There is a terribly strange notion affecting the country, chiefly on the left but sometimes on the right, that man's highest calling is to be a Public Relations Account Manager.

But I'll put that aside to get to the funny stuff. Via @johnekdahl, enjoy this email from Organizing for America.

Do not read it hastily; the most magical sentence in the email is the second sentence.



Updated: I added Eekdahl's Chris Hayes tweet. This is coordinated, he says.

It's interesting-- why is this sort of thing not being discussed on the right? Why is it, apparently, only the left that has Daddy Issues and thus needs a Conversation Checklist when meeting with family?

Not to say that the right won't talk politics at family gatherings, but you don't see this weird combination of Advocacy Checklists, Comforting the Anxious, How to Deal With Dad, and so forth every year from the right.
