'Obamaphones,' the Clinton impeachment, and other firestarters
1. Start something. Sarcastic references to touchy subjects should kick things off nicely. "I'm thankful for all that free stuff Obama gave me," recommends Slate's John Cook. Or how about wishing your relatives a "Happy Native American Genocide Day," which is guaranteed offend almost everybody.

There's also much to be said for accusing your relatives of racism, or reverse racism, for their 2012 presidential vote.

4. Drink as much as possible.
