Answer: Ya know, my philosophy is that life’s too short to go round and round with idiots unless traffic or money is involved. So personally, I don’t waste time trying to talk politics with frothing at the mouth lefties. On the other hand, if you’re the sort of a masochist who enjoys crafting a coherent, rational, argument and getting a totally irrational response that’s only marginally related to what you said, have at it!
Put another way, you’re probably better off steering the conversation away from politics if your friend is just regurgitating loopy liberal talking points.
