Glad we don’t live in such a place.
Democrats have prepared a guide to confronting Republican relatives at Thanksgiving:

For those Democrats who are too dumb to remember the talking points, they even have a cheat sheet (h/t Noah Rothman):

And what a fantastic idea; nothing says, “this would make for interesting dinner conversation” quite like debating Obamacare. After all, over the past month, signing up for Obamacare has really put people in the holiday spirit.
Democrats are just doing what the leader of the Party wants:

The video begins innocently enough, with a twenty-something answering a phone call from his parents.
“We have something really important to talk about,” his parents say in a serious tone.
The son looks concerned. “Ok… that’s weird,” he replies.
And it only gets weirder.
As the young man drives to his parent’s house in a gas-guzzling SUV, he ponders what his parents could want to talk to him about.
A number of possible conversation topics are presented. In what must have been a desperate attempt to appear in-touch with younger voters, they even include bad pop culture references to things like Daft Punk and Harry Potter.
As the family sits down to eat a holiday meal, the anticipation is high. So, what could the parents want to talk to their son about?
“We know you don’t have health insurance- but its time to get covered,” the dad tells his son.
“It’s important,” the mom says.
At the end of the video, the son agrees to sign up.
Personally, I would like to thank BarackObama.com for this warm holiday tale- it really embodies the holiday spirit.
And I’m sure that it will (not) go down as a classic.
How long before they set up a website to report your relatives? Oh wait:
