In what has to be one of the most entertaining calls into CSPAN in years, the mother of competing pundits Democrat Brad Woodhouse and Republican Dallas Woodhouse had some harsh words for her arguing progeny. Apparently, the brothers’ arguments don’t end when the cameras stop, and Mrs. Woodhouse has had enough. She told her mortified sons, live on national television, “I disagree that all families are like ours. I don’t know many families that are fighting at Thanksgiving… I was very glad that this Thanksgiving was the year that you two were supposed to go to your in-laws. I’m hoping that you’ll have some of this out of your system when you come here for Christmas.”
The best moment of the call-in comes at the moment of realization for both men that the caller wasn’t just any old woman from the South, but instead, Mom. “Oh God, it’s mom.”
Does your family fight at holiday time? Would your mom be the type to call into a show if you were arguing with a sibling on air?
