Just watched Obama’s Christmas tree-lighting ceremony. We just lost a battle in the war on Christmas. While he did utter the word Holiday, the word Christmas flowed freely from his mouth, as did talk about Jesus, angels and God, and how this teaches us good morals.
So clearly the Prez is giving in to all the Jesus freaks who are upset about secularizing the “holidays” (the same people stampeding Wal-Mart on Black Friday). I guess seeing the election on the horizon has a funny effect on politicians. Seldom have I had so high hopes for someone only to be so bitterly disappointed later on.
I’m considering boycotting the whole election. Go OWS!
