What would Christmas be anymore without the aggrieved cries of persecuted white Christians screaming that the very birth of Baby Jesus is being undermined by heathens and retailers country-wide? As anticipated, the American Family Association sent its first volley of this year’s war on all things good, holy, Murkin and a lighter shade of pale (I’m sure O’Reilly’s been at it longer, but I didn’t bother to check):
Based on current advertising, below is a list of companies that avoid, ban, or use the term “Christmas” in their advertising. We will continually update the list, so check back often.
Criteria - AFA reviewed up to four areas to determine if a company was “Christmas-friendly” in their advertising: print media (newspaper inserts), broadcast media (radio/television), website and/or personal visits to the store. If a company’s ad has references to items associated with Christmas (trees, wreaths, lights, etc.), it was considered as an attempt to reach “Christmas” shoppers.
If a company has items associated with Christmas, but did not use the word “Christmas,” then the company is considered as censoring “Christmas.”
Okay, I wasn’t going to write about that stupid person Sarah Palin and her fake bus tour anymore but then a very mean person who wishes to remain anonymous (communist!) tipped me off about this C-SPAN video. It starts off with a bunch of people speaking in tongues, which is fairly standard for these Palin book signings, but after about the 5:30 mark the seemingly nice Christiany ladies start redefining socialism and it’s filled with comical blank stares and simple things to understand! And then a very angry lookin’-down grandma starts talking like a smart version of Amy Siskind and then becomes Michael Savage and says things like “loony liberals” until she gets so very enraged that she calls Obama “some little squirt” (she really does!) and starts wildly feasting on the spleen of the cameraman. The end.
Cheney was asked if he thinks the Bush administration bears any responsibility for the disintegration of Afghanistan because of the attention and resources that were diverted to Iraq. “I basically don’t,” he replied without elaborating.
The rest of it should just be buried under thick layers of STFU.
