Not in my family. My brothers Tim (Dem) and Geoff (Rep, but he once told me he was more of a Libertarian) would get into some big rows, and we all thought it was just them...Till I found out from Dad that Grandpa Len (New Dealer) and Great Uncle Theodore (Hooverite) would get into bigger rows, and even came to fisticuffs on occasion. Dad said that Great Grandma would scream at the two of them to "Shut the Hell up!" Which, Dad said, was uncharacteristic of Great Grandma, who was a staunch Protestant and did not like swearing. Me, I'm a Mugwump, and think that both ends of the political yardstick need to be beaten severely about the head and shoulders with said yardstick. But at dinner, I keep my mouth shut.
