Wag the Christmas Tree ...

Some days I immensely enjoy The Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly. And some days, I wonder what got into him. He has railed for what seems an eternity about the "secular progressives" and lately has whined about the "war on Christmas." Are you shittin' me? How friggin stupid. I mean, does he just pull this stuff out of a hat? And if so, why are Sean Hannity and the rest of the folks at Fox News wearing the same hat? Today's Radio Factor was another episode of him whining about what stores say "happy holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas." According to Mr. Falafel, the phrase "happy holidays" offends Christians, but Muslims, Jews, and the rest of the world should have no problem with "Happy Holidays." Um. What? I'm sorry. This is stupid. I celebrate Christmas. But if you want to celebrate something else, so be it. And if you wish me "Happy Holidays," I won't be offended in the slightest. Just thought you might want to know. Is the War in Iraq going soooo poorly that O'Reilly needs to invent new wars to distract people? Like the War on Christmas? Give me a break, O'Reilly. There is no War on Christmas. It's all in your head. And it's very lonely for that matter.
