Me and my gf got into a major almost fight over politics with her father. He is a real jerk. He started getting personal. My gf grabbed my leg to let me know I was heating up. What do I do? I really felt like telling him off.

I personally do not think you should remain quiet, but I don't think getting loud and disrespectful will accomplish anything. I would rehearse. Write down some of the things he has said, and come up with calm and logical responses. The calmer you are, the more he'll be out of control. Obviously, try not to discuss politics. You could even ask him to eliminate it.
