The War on Christmas

This "War on Christmas" Business is just nonsense.

No one has declared war on Christmas. Anyhow, I just wanted to put together a round up of stories , audio and video about it that I think are good.

This is from onegoodmove.org, here is a good recap of all of Bill O'Reilly's "War" on Christmas lunacy.

Here's one from Crooks and Liars that's a good 10 minutes, but it's really good.

Another one from onegoodmove.org, here is a dynamite Daily Show clip that is funny even after seven viewings in which The Daily Show attacks Bill O'Reilly's craziness.

And here is a very good discussion about it on Doug Fabrizio's always interesting "Radio West." This is an hour long but it's fascinating. He has people on that explain and debunk this entire "War on Christmas" business and they explain exactly where it came from (it started with Henry Ford's anti-semetic Conspiracy theories.)

It's all good stuff.

Did you know that Doug Fabrizio cheated on his first wife while she was pregnant?

Did you know that she found out and kicked his ass out of the house?

He married the woman he was running around behind her back with, so I guess that's something.

Nice guy!!!

I can't even begin to understnd how this has to do with anything.

He cheated on his wife? How does that affect the great radio programs he produces?

Nice Guy? I don't care. Good Father? Fuck you go home and play with your kids.
