Politics Doesn't Take a Holiday, or Life is Just the Party

Donald McClarey over at The American Catholic pointed out a Democratic "cheat sheet" for use at the Thanksgiving table when confronted with pesky Republican relatives. McClarey asserted that politics would be the farthest thing from his mind as he celebrated the holiday with his family. Frankly, there is nothing more hostile to the digestion than a confrontational discussion at the dinner table.

I offered the following contribution to the discussion:

It is baffling that, after the dressing-down the Democratic party received in the last election, they are still convinced they can sell this turkey of a platform. They will continue yam-mering until we are all vegetables. They made the mistake of thinking it was all gravy after the 2008 election, but the proof of the pudding is in the tasting. If they could have squashed the political talk on this American feast, they could have gotten down to meat and potatoes tomorrow. But perhaps they feel the sauce this Thanksgiving is a little thin, so they need to butter up the faithful and roll with the political punches. But we'll just relish their disarray passively today.

Wishing all a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving.
