  •  I was almost 3, riding in my dad's Rambler (6+ / 0-)

    We were moving from Canoga Park to Thousand Oaks. I only remember my dad saying "He was a creep!" about JFK, which gives you an idea of my family's politics at the time. That's how I learned a new word...

    My mother saw the light after all the anti-abortion rhetoric of the Reagan years. If the GOP had nominated a snail to run against President Obama, my dad would've voted for the snail.

    Not voting is NOT an option this time around.

      "faith based" politics. Since his death, I have found literature from John Birch Society, that was my dad's. And Goldwater stuff.
      He had softened considerably before he died.

      My mother was the head of the Republicans Overseas in Brussels in the Eighties, loud, proud Reaganite; she has since had a come to Jebus moment and is an ardent supporter of Obama.

      I half-jokingly tell her it's too little, too late in the karmic ledger.
