The talk in another thread made me think of this.

Have you ever had to leave a conversation because another person was a liberal?

Once we were over to eat with another couple and the wife of the couple wouldn't stop badmouthing Bush, I ended up fakeing a a headache to avoid embarasing my wife (work friend of hers).

Just curious how far this might have gone with other people...

When I get stuck in these conversations...usually at work. I just say I need to go now or I'm going to piss someone off.

I usually win in these situations because after a few facts, the lib gets mad and starts with the personal attacks. The first person to accuse the other of having a bad attitude wins because the accused has to go on defense.

They have a hand full of nothing and hate for it to be pointed out one fact at a time.

I find that just pointing at them and laughing ends up being less insulting and embarassing for them than if you actually engage them in conversation.

Ahhh...the power of manipulation....libs are too easy. Its the socialist extremists you should walk away from.


Good on you for not embarassing your wife though.

This is what I do.

And when they press the point to find out what I think, I just tell them that I don't talk politics with idiots.

Thats what they get for not respecting my right to pleasantly step out of the conversation.

I've found the following to be quite effective:

Listen intently to the liberal's rant. Nod occasionally. When the speaker pauses for comment or agreement, look them right in the eye, pause for a second, then laugh as loud as you possibly can for four or five seconds.

Pause and wait for the stunned reaction. It's great!

Typically I'm pretty willing to engage people in such debates, and they usually go the way yal'll mention. I enjoy it, but I felt what I did was better in that situation. I was supprised to find tha I literally couldn't stomach it, and had to leave.

Yep, had a business colleague insist F911 was the best movie he ever saw. I excused myself from dinner and left the restaurant.
