I am behind enemy lines.
I am visiting my father and his wife, my stepmother.
My stepmother is a fascist.
We make it a point to try as hard as we can NOT to discuss current events or politics.
Trouble with my Dad and me is that we both enjoy discussing both things. We have that in common. We have a surprising amount of things in common except he's an extreme right winger and I'm not. We have come to the point where we can actually discuss things as long as others don't intervene. I am now post-partisan. I hate Obama as much as he does, even if for different reasons. We both think that getting rid of all the politicians and parties and starting completely over is a good idea.
But my stepmother. She loves Sarah Palin. Now she loves Michelle Bachman. Today she came out and said it.
Tonight I saw Bachman sales brochures and mailers on the kitchen table. She is probably giving money to Bachman's campaign.
I actually kind of what to ask her why she likes Bachman so much. But her answers won't be the slightest bit original. I can look her answers up online. Because someone else has already written them.
The mind. It boggles. In spite of this we are having a good time. The place is beautiful. The kids are having a great time. It's relaxing, there's plenty of food to eat and things to do and the weather is wonderful. And we're family.
