Republican Friends and How to Keep them

No matter what people tell their Democratic friends, everyone knows and even likes some Republicans. This can be a problem at work, lunch, happy hour and even dinner parties*.

So, if you find yourself in the company of several of the YTRBILTs**, remember to occaisionally bring up something that Repulicans hate. You don't actually have to participate in the subsequent conversation, you just want to appear "not liberal".

Try to choose a subject that you are neutral or even negative about, but that you know Republicans hate, such as soccer.

Republicans are especially fond of football and baseball, but tend to shy away from other sports. Top among these ‘other sports’ is the cancer known as soccer. Soccer’s threat to American men has been prevalent since immigrants began arriving on U.S. shores in the late 19th century.

Good luck, you'll need it.

*If you invite Rebs and Dems to the same dinner party, you are one tough person.

**Yes They're Republican But I Like Them

I get in trouble on Facebook. I know the rules (we don't discuss politics or religion in mixed company) but I just. Can't. Help. Myself.

The other day I heard a blip on a news story...something about the "republicans for gay rights"

I didn't think I'd ever hear those two things in the same sentence, I nearlyb drove off the road.
