Caffeinated Conservatives and their TwitterNet Banter

The beautiful Beth Pepoy has sat back and observed the intra-conservative scuffles of late and has a very timely, and funny observation.  She begins:

The other evening I was at a friend’s house when I noticed she had the same Keurig Coffee Maker that I do.  I started to make a comment about it , when suddenly she revved up into a whole dissertation on the handy contraption.  I mentioned to her ( at least I tried to) that I already owned one just like it, but nevertheless continued with her monologue, almost as if she was enjoying the sound of her own voice.
Looking at her in disbelief, I wanted to say; didn’t you hear what I just said? Honestly, I was floored by how little she was paying attention, and astonished how effortlessly she moved from contraption to what coffee I needed to buy.  She even went so far as to hand me a coupon for 20% off to buy a coffee maker I already own.
 Frustrated, I managed a crooked smile and accepted the coupon. Next thing I knew she was handing me a cup of coffee.  Quickly (more like one hot fast gulp, I would pay for later) I  finished the cup of coffee that she insisted I try.  It was then I realized I needed to make my escape.  Don’t get me wrong I love her, she a great friend, but there are times that she gravitates towards something and I can’t bring her back from.
Hyped up on caffeine my drive home would be the kind of stuff  Speedracer would be proud of.
And that’s when it hit me….
