I just had an old high school friend come visit me last week. This guy and his family helped me to survive when i was young by putting me up when I had no where to live. I have always been indebted to them for that.
He has always been a republican or at least a tool that regurgitates republican memes and we have gotten into many arguments over the years over politics. I remember when the Iraq war started telling him there were no weapons of mass destruction and him telling me I was foolish and didnt know what I was talking about. So it has gone over many conversations over the years.
Anyway he came over to my house this last week, his first to my house out here. He was walking through looking at pictures I have on my wall of my family., when he stopped at one and asked my if one picture was of my wife with her father and my son. A friend of his that was with him immediately chimed in and said thats someone famous isnt it? I wasn't sure what picture he was looking at so I went over to take a look.
It was a picture we got during the last presidential primaries of myself my wife and my kid with Joe Biden LOL.
I asked him if he was serious and didnt really know who it was? His friend chimed in and said isnt he a politician or something......
All I can say is the look of embarrassment on their faces when I said it was the Vice President of the United States was very satisfying. It was at that point I told him.
"And with that I will never take you seriously again when it comes to politics."
