Democrat Samantha Dunn falls for a Republican. Hostility ensues:
My friends – Westside-Topanga-artist-former-Peace-Corps-writer-multicultural-all-is-Zen pals – first questioned my sanity, then became angry. After my buddy Rachel was sure I wasn’t kidding about the whole Republican thing, she demanded to know how I could even stand to be in a room with someone who had worked for anti-choice candidates.
So much for choice.
Laura and Veronica were concerned: Was it hormonal? Was I that desperate to find a straight, employed, single man in Southern California? … Other longtime acquaintances rescinded a dinner offer when I told them whom I was bringing.
She should tell them he’s a member of the Taliban. They’d be cool with it.
