Me (looking at the picture of Obama with family): he has my haircut. [It's a long story involving an accident with electric clippers.]
A liberal: yeah, your hair looks similar.
Me: That's about one thing that we have in common.
L: Well, that's probably not the only thing you have in common. He is a very intelligent man.
Me: How is that revealed?
L: Well, he wrote a very good book.
Me: How is that revealed in his presidency? [Not that I agree that his book was any good. Also: ahem.]
L: Well, his mistake is trying to please everyone.
Me: Such as Islamic Brotherhood and Taliban?
L: We did not start talks with Taliban.
Me: Yes we did. As someone said, "Obama is willing to negotiate unconditionally with Iran. He started talks with Islamic Brotherhood in Egypt. He started 'preliminary negotiations' with Taliban. But of course, one must draw a line somewhere, over which he won’t allow the enemy to step over and won’t negotiate. That line is discussion with Republicans about the budget."
L: Republicans think that rich people should not pay taxes. Those rich bastards can afford it. My brother is a rich man, but he says he would never vote for Republicans, because they don't care about the common man. And now we will bentch.
I am sure the doctors who practiced bleeding also cared about their patients.
