So freaking (and belatedly) proud

During dinner with my mom this weekend, she released a skeleton from the family closet - but a good skeleton. As it turns out, my grandmother was a lifelong Democrat. This may not sound like a big deal, given the liberal tone I maintain here, but it's somewhat shocking given that my parents and siblings are quite conservative and I've generally been the political black sheep of the family ever since I voted for Clinton in 1992. But my grandmother voted for FDR every time he ran, even incurring her brother's sharp criticism in the process, and all Democrat presidential candidates after that. So I've got liberal in my blood.

That's amazing! This time around we're not a minority- even Marti's come around. God knows what got into my dad's water, though. He thinks Palin shits roses...and he is a lone cheese.
