Please Don’t Throw Food At These People On Thursday

In case you haven’t heard, the Obama administration is now giving talking points to its supporters for the latter to use to tout Obamacare to their relatives at holiday get-togethers.

There is no refuge from left-wing politics anymore…

That’s the web ad you’ll see at the Health Care For The Holidays page on Barack Obama’s website.

Some highlights beyond that…

Mark and Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist have a pretty good comeback to the “Would you like to take some time with me to sign up now?” question…

Here’s a sample response you might use. “That would be great. Except that I’m going to be washing dishes and cleaning up for a bit. How about you go into the guest room and use the computer in there to sign me up. As soon as you’re done, you can have some pie.”

The key is to get them to make a commitment not to come out until they’ve finished signing you up. Remember their conversation tip — Ask them to make a plan, and commit to it. Ask them to commit to finishing the sign-up before they come out of the room.

Since nobody can actually sign up for Obamacare, they’ll be busily trying to operate the web site for the duration of your visit. And the beauty of the disaster zone that is the Obamacare website is that whether you plan to visit for hours or days, the crazy family member will be out of your hair. For added giggles with the sane portion of the family, be sure to follow the last tip — Don’t forget to follow up: “Have you signed up yet?”

Every time you pass the room, knock on the door loudly and ask them that exact question. Once your crazy uncle is holed-up with a laptop in the guest bedroom, you and your more tolerable relatives can enjoy the rest of the holiday in peace.

The fact is, this will bomb just like lots of other things the OFA crowd has attempted (Attack Watch, anyone?). Why? Because nobody wants to be browbeaten about politics when they go home for the holidays.

And when it’s this in-your-face, together with the obvious mass-media coordination from the administration’s lickspittles…

…one would suspect that the reception the president’s talking-points readers receive over the holidays won’t be all that positive.

Just know that if your idiot lefty nephew starts to proselytize Obamacare over Thanksgiving dinner, this is where it’s coming from. And feel free to respond accordingly – which doesn’t include violence.
