Not too long ago I wrote about how Liberals make my head hurt. I said they make no sense and likened them to tumbleweeds blowing around with the wind. They have no roots. Nothing's changed. I still believe that especially after a conversation I had with my grandmother a few days ago. She is 90 but this has nothing to do with age. She's always been like this.
She was and is a great supporter of Hillary. She loved the Clintons and they could do no wrong. She absolutely loved Hillary especially and knowing my grandmother is not only a strong woman in her own right but also a feminist before her time I figured she might like Palin as well.
I should have figured. The "R" after Palin's name is just too much to bear.
In my past debates with my grandmother I'd call her a liberal who made no sense and she'd deny it saying she had voted Republican in the past trying to show me it was the person and not neccessarily the party.
Ya, right. Another liberal lie.
So I called her this week and asked her about Palin and her thoughts on her. She answered with:
"Palin is mean."
"She is?" I asked.
"Yes, very mean and hateful."
"Why? What has she done?"
"She's just mean. She's hateful."
"But why? Give me something she's mean about."
"Oh, she's always spouting off. She's just mean."
"But grammy, why is she mean?"
"She says bad things about the Democrats."
"She does? What things? Give me some specifics."
Right then she abruptly changes the subject to tell me she already voted for Obama by mail.
"But you hate Obama (realizing the dodge). You told me you'd never vote to have a Black Muslim in the White House." (She has racist tendencies btw)
"Well I had no choice."
"You didn't?" I asked. "Of course you did."
"No, I didn't have a choice. I had to vote for a Democrat."
"Even if you don't like him?"
"I don't like him but I had no choice."
"Well you didn't have to vote."
"Well, I suppose but I have to stick by the Democratic ticket."
It would serve me no purpose to remind her of all those times she told me she voted Republican before and how she wasn't tied to the Democrats like I've accused her. It just makes my head hurt that much more.
She then went on to complain about the whole financial crisis. She makes no money. She has no stocks. She pays no taxes. She recieved the bonus Bush sent out and spent that. She doesn't even have a savings account living only on Social Security never having really worked her whole life. And she's complaining about the financial crisis? Then she votes Democrat?
When I got off the phone I knew I needed asprin. My head hurt.
