The War of Christmas

AirAmerica’s Sam Seder appeared today on CNN to debate the “war on Christmas” with Bob Knight, director of the Culture and Family Institute. (Seder is pictured below holding up an ad for the “holiday party” thrown by Fox News parent company, News Corp.).

It was quite a performance. Watch the video:

(Quicktime)

Transcript:

SEDER: Listen, as far as the war on Christmas goes, I feel like we should be waging a war on Christmas. I mean, I believe that Christmas, it’s almost proven that Christmas has nuclear weapons, can be an imminent threat to this country, that they have operative ties with terrorists and I believe that we should sacrifice thousands of American lives in pursuit of this war on Christmas. And hundreds of billions of dollars of taxpayer money.

PHILLIPS: Is it a war on Christmas, a war on Christians, a war on over-political correctness or just a lot of people with way too much time on their hands?

SEDER: I would say probably, if I was to be serious about it, too much time on their hands, but I’d like to get back to the operational ties between Santa Claus and al Qaeda.

PHILLIPS: I don’t think that exists. Bob? Help me out here.

SEDER: We have intelligence, we have intelligence.

PHILLIPS: You have intel. Where exactly does your intel come from?

SEDER: Well, we have tortured an elf and it’s actually how we got the same information from Al Libbi. It’s exactly the same way the Bush administration got this info about the operational ties between al Qaeda and Saddam.

Full version at Eschaton.

This whole "War on Christmas" is AMAZING.... Christians pushing for MORE commericialization of Christmas..... BACK WHEN I WAS A KID... Christians would push for LESS COMMERCIALIZATION and more of a return to the original meaning of the holiday...

The advertizers must be LOVING this....

Looks like the Pope is supporting the flanks of the war on Christmas. From MyWay:

Dec 11, 8:21 AM (ET)

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Benedict warned on Sunday against rampant materialism which he said was polluting the spirit of Christmas.

As long as they keep us fighting about marriage, guns, and God, we can't see the men behind the bushes.
 
The men behind the Bushes is Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice....oops, sorry.
