Small Talk, Big Talk

What do you call someone who can make anything political? Like, you could be having an innocuous conversation with someone, all small talk, and then they go off into the weeds?

“Nice cool breezy weather we got today, yeah?”
“Not as cold as the day we finally get all of them dirty sumbitches outta Congress an’ string those motherfuckers up to twist in the breeze!”
Dude, is everything OK at home?”

Have we all just lost our sense of smell? Have we forgotten how to read the room and decide what’s appropriate? Have we got so self-absorbed that we don’t care what someone else has going on?

Are we all age 3 again?
