When I saw a pair of tweets on Wednesday, I knew.
This one is actually a thread. There’s a whole series of pointers: talking points for those recalcitrant Thanksgiving guests who don’t see impeachment MoveOn’s way.
THREAD: Thanksgiving is Thursday & many of you may be spending the holiday with friends & family members who are uncertain about impeachment. Here’s a guide for talking with them impeachment:pic.twitter.com/b07e4P16e6

This one I can’t even.
Some of our personal favorite Thanksgiving conversation starters:
💬 "My pronouns are…"
💬 "Firing people for being LGBTQ is illegal and Trump asked SCOTUS to change that"
💬 "Who loved Pose season 2?"
💬 "Please pass the pie, and the Equality Act"

So I knew: it’s just not in me to write Thanksgiving meditations on philosophy or politics this year.
If anyone wants to chat about whether Jerry Jones should stick with Jason Garrett, I’m here. I think that’s pretty safe. But y’all can figure out the Harbaugh situation without me. (Unless you’ve got any funny memes to slide under the table.)
Let’s enjoy being thankful for a day and just relax. If you feel like a walk down Memory Lane — or an excursion down the Memory Lane of those a generation ahead of you — here’s an oldie but goodie. It’s Reagan’s last Thanksgiving radio address from the White House. I think you’ll actually be surprised that its message is not stale, but could largely have been delivered for today. The familiar voice and the face, of course, take you back to another time.
We don’t need to be in that time anymore — which is good, since we can’t be. The time we’re in now is a great human adventure. God is good. America is great: a sanctuary in ways we didn’t always consciously plan. Hope and a future depend not on a perfection we can never attain, but on the character of the One we put our trust in.
Now go watch some football, or whatever it is you do. We are mightily blessed.
Happy Thanksgiving to all our treasured reader-correspondents in LU Nation.
