Oh, God. *hides face in hands*
My grandfather (the still-alive one, obv) has started emailing me... Things. Forwarded things. You know.
Hardline conservative 'jokes' and juggled statistics. Lamenting how the poor, persecuted Republicans are soooooo persecuted and Obama and the Democrats are ruining the country and are terrists (dontchaknow) and the illegals are TAKING OWER JAAAWRBS.
I'm just... letting these pass without comment. Grampy is Old and Set In His Ways and has few joys in life. It would accomplished nothing to respond.
But I'm dreading my next family visit, when he shoves a printout of one of these things in my hands and waits for me to laugh.
"Yeah, that's great, Grampy. Let's shoot everybody with more than 10% screentone and leave them for the coyotes. Swell."
