The Ire of "Obamanots in Denial"
Whatever you do when talking politics with Obamanots in denial, beware that you will be subjected to hormonal and emotional attacks on your integrity that require excessive amounts of patience and salt to counter. You will be lambasted with litmus tests on your support for LGBT rights, taxing the rich, being a racist, being a white male power-man, or abortion, all the while any discussion of pertinent issues of say, imperial overstretch, corporate malfeasance, or extreme hypocrisy (a la Larry Summers, Tim Geithner, or Michael Taylor...i.e. corporate revolving door). One thing that's striking about Obamanots in denial is how narrowly focused on social issues they are. It's like they were living under a rock for the past three years. They're just incredibly happy to have campaign oriented conversations about nothing that relates to the dismal state of the country's trade deficit, the foreclosure scandal, or any other realpolitik issue. Obamanots in denial, if there is one thing you're good at, it's cheerleading. Maybe you should channel that energy into Billy or Sue's little league game where the losers are winners, too.
