Who’s really cuckoo?

I have two sets of relatives that are unsolicitedly (I know that’s not a word but dammit it works here) vocal about their politics.  My in-laws, and my grandma.  Now, my in-laws, who are otherwise sane, logical people, are dyed-in-the-wool McCain dry-humpers and think that Obama is evil and socialist and they probably want to believe he’s a terrorist but just can’t really buy into the line.  My grandma, who I spent most of my life thinking was somewhat cuckoo (she once accidentally let a fart slip in front of my mom and declared, “Goodness!  I am toot-tooting all over the place lately!”.  This was comedic fodder for us for years.) asked me recently who I planned to vote for.  I told her Obama, and she decreed, “Thank goodness!!  I think he’s just super.”  I know she was a Republican for a long time, and I’m not sure what caused her change of heart, but I can assure you it’s not senility.  She’s sharp as a tack.

I have new respect for my grandma.  And I’m trying to turn my in-laws on to the spoiler potential that is Bob Barr.  Really, they are libertarians… they just don’t know it yet.  😉

    Okay, you owe me a new keyboard, for I have spit Diet Coke all over the old one.

  2. Can I borrow your grandma someday? I miss mine, and she sounds like a corker!!
    Yes! By all means yes, the Bob Barr spoiler. Start flooding the inlaws’ mailbox with info, pronto.
