Political Christmas

Dear Heather,
I am planning on having my husband's family over for Christmas, but I don't want World War Three to erupt over our vast political differences. Paul is a republican and my family are radical democrats. What do you suggest I do?

Your cuisine is really going to have to shine to obfuscate any conversational hazards that might arise. Might I suggest garlic mashed potatoes, beef tenderloin, and sauteed asparagus? This could be followed by soothing music, dancing, and endless showering of gifts, which all can agree is pleasing.
