  • Talking politics at a social event…

    Posted by Jonathan on March 24th, 2012 (All posts by )

    About ninety minutes ago. Two guys are talking. I walk up and join them.

    First Guy: …all politicians are liars. All of them. Mitt Romney is the worst liar. Everything he says is a lie.

    Me: You voted for Obama, didn’t you?

    First Guy: Yes, I did.

    Me: He’s the biggest liar of them all.

    First Guy: No he isn’t. George W. Bush is.

    Me: Excuse me, I need to get to my parking meter before it expires…
