Earlier Every Year

Two days, and two posts on the WAR ON CHRISTMAS !!!

Digby was first with a piece about the rebirth of a supposed threat that references a petition for a ruling sent to the FCC. The matter was resolved by the FCC circa 1975, but it keeps getting resurrected. [Resurrection is very important to Christians, but I don’t think it should be used for bogus e-mail campaigns.]

This particular meme almost beats out the “post office is going to bill you for e-mail” as the most repeated bogus threat.

Then John McKay found the White House Christmas tree ornament scandal, that isn’t.

Of course the White House is going to continue to misrepresent the decorated fir tree in the Winter as a Christian symbol. You don’t really expect them to admit it was stolen from Teutonic Solstice celebrations, do you?

I think they should continue to send those cards and letters. It increases the Postal Service’s income.

That doesn’t happen until Fox et al. have their Christmas merchandise available to sell. It’s amazing how the two things have happened to coincide year after year. There is always a tag line at the end of the story about how they are keeping Christ in Christmas – “Just call 1-800-666-XMAS, and have your credit card ready…”

Holiday Trees, rofl.

Anytime an unsolicited email exclaims, “This isn’t a rumor; this is a fact”, then of course you should believe it!

We are to believe that a guy with two kids in elementary school is going to be able to ignore Christmas. Yeah, right.

Well, as long as it says it’s a fact… gee, how can you argue with that?
