damn, I don't know what to say.
Tell her that from now on politics is forbidden in the house. Take the initiative, write her a letter, and tell her that no matter who is in office
the family should come first. That whatever external pressure may have made her so passionate that she insulted you, that you will forgive her, but
that she is not allowed to insult you again like that over your political ideology.
That if she does, you will lose respect for her, and consider how your own kids will be treated around someone that cannot control themselves. That
maybe she is a bad influence on you because her political ideology leads her to forget the blood in her veins, and her maternal instinct and in turn
cause you harm.
I would not let her have it, but be adult in your response, not emotional. Communicate your emotions rationally and tell her that this sort of
behavior is unacceptable, and that if verbal abuse is the price of living with her, that you will endure it long enough to leave her alone for the
rest of her life. Ask her if Romney will bring his kids over to see grandma when she is dying and her life is put into perspective.
I wouldn't hold back, not let her have it but be honest. These situations have those consequences. Don't hide that, just don't be a jerk about it.
You have to make her stop that. Don't fear her, she is just a person. Even if she is your mother. She is still human and bound by the same rules as
the rest of us.
Oh, and I can't stress this enough. POLITICS IS FORBIDEN BETWEEN YOU from now on. DO NOT engage her in a political discussion and be bold about your
intolerance to the subject.
Good luck. Be happy.
