Epiphany strikes my 73-year-old republican sister while watching Fox News. [View all]

She hasn't voted for a Dem presidential candidate since Jimmy Carter in 1976, but something they said about Obama last week switched on the light bulb. Her son, who watches Jon Stewart, said she finally realized that Fox News and the repukes actually were Bullshit Mountain. So there is at least some good news down here from red Alabama. Also, most of my nieces and nephews are in their 30s and 40s. Four of the six voted for Obama. All of them, including my oldest sister, voted for Bush in 2000. Now I'm no longer the lonely Democrat at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

That is the only good news I have from deep behind enemy lines. Now back to a cold beer and watching my DVR and reading fun stuff on DU.
