Last week, I invited my neighbor to my house and had a weekend party as we have not seen each other for 3 months. During a neighborhood party here, I got into an argument with my neighbor, Van, about presidential politics. Finally, he asked me why I was such a dedicated Republican.
I told him that my Father and Grandfather were Republicans before me and that I was carrying on the family tradition. "That’s it ?" said my exasperated neighbor.
"What if your Father and Grandfather had been horse thieves ?"
"Well..." I replied, "I suppose then I’d be a Democrat like you."
