We've all been embarrassed by our mothers at one time or another. But chances are our moms never called in to scold us on live national television.
During a C-SPAN debate Tuesday centered on whether or not bipartisanship is good for governing the country, Dallas and Brad Woodhouse -- brothers and "political operatives who work on opposite sides of the aisle" -- received a call from "somebody down south" in Raleigh, North Carolina.
"You're right I'm from down south!" the voice on the phone shot back.
"Oh God, it's mom," Dallas groaned, promptly burying his head in his hands.
Catching her sons off guard by calling through C-SPAN's regular caller line, Joy Woodhouse used the opportunity to chide her sons over their argumentative nature.
"I'm your mother and I disagree that all families are like ours. I don't know many families that are fighting at Thanksgiving," she said. "I was very glad that this Thanksgiving was the year that you two were suppose to go to your in-laws, and I'm hoping you'll have some of this out of your systems when you come here for Christmas."
"I would really like a peaceful Christmas," she continued. "And I love you both."
We're with mom on this one. Let's just have some peace this holiday season.
