A "Friendly" Discussion

The other day I was attempting to have a friendly political discussion with an acquaintance who is as liberal as I am conservative. The discussion became progressively more heated as he continued to lose ground so he decided on another tact and began enumerating the issues we agreed on by saying "It's not like we're "diabolically" opposed to one another."

After I finished having a wonderful laugh at his Freudian slip I assured him that while our world views were, in many ways, "diametrically" opposed, anyone that was in favor of building a new wing onto a federal prison to house everyone that ever worked for the Bush administration was, indeed, "diabolically" opposed to me.
