    My co-workers are mostly Republican, but they're also young (30s, give or take) and not especially hard core.   One co-worker has a wife who is plugged into the Fux News alternate universe, and he'll occasionally come out with one of their talking points.  For example, one day he said something negative about Obama using a teleprompter.  I said, "You know, I don't really see that as a problem.  A President has important things to do, and I don't want him to waste time memorizing speeches."  The others at the table were nodding thoughtfully, and a whole conversation ensued about this.

    That's the thing with these Republicans.  If they aren't already lost to the Hive Mind, you can get them to stop and think about a talking point - and as soon as they do that, they realize what bullshit it is.

    Fox News is to the truth as a flaming bag of dog shit is to a packed lunch. --MinistryOfTruth
