    He's a diehard dittohead to the point that even the rest of the family, who are all fundagelical teabaggers, wish he would leave it.

    Even when I point out the obvious holes in his argument, he'll look right at me and say, "I don't see that it's wrong." Brick walls have more understanding.

    Fortunately for me, reading this site every day for eight years now has given me a lot of ammunition. Plus, I lay on the sarcasm pretty thick. That drives him nuts and he doesn't have any comebacks. It won't change his mind, nothing will, but it will shut him up.

    He had a meltdown after the last election which was fun to hear about.
