Sure you didRuby the Liberal (21,732 posts)
Mind blowing conversation this morning with a RW relative.
So I got a call this morning.
Because you are the family liberal nutjob authority on Paul RyanRW relative who has never voted for a Dem in their life was nervous, so called me to ask if Paul Ryan was the same guy who wants to replace Medicare with "coupons".
Loathes politics but coincidentally calls the all knowing DUmmieShe thought she remembered the name, but wasn't sure if it was the same person. "Yes, that would be him - why are you worried about his budget?". She knew much more about Ryan than I thought she did - and I am not sure where she got her information as she loathes politics - but she was right on the money about the high level issues ("He wants to kill Medicare so he can give wealthy people more tax breaks"). She lives in a 55+ semi-retirement community, but it is very conservative. No telling who said what to her to get her stirred up.
Sure she didThen I about fell out of my chair. The next remark was, "We need the liberals to stay in Congress to stop them if they get in".
I'll. Bet. She. Is.What?
Yes, I heard that right. She loves her R-Rep, but will be voting for her D-Senator. First. Time. Ever.
Neither does anyone else actually.I still can't believe it.
Which is why she called you, right?Baby steps, I guess. Lord knows she rarely wants to hear about politics from me, so kudos to whoever she is listening to.
Time to change the bong water.
