Now Who Hates Christmas?
Bill O’Reilly, John Gibson and Fox News have a new enemy in their "War to save Christmas" and its - the White House? It seems this years first family's Xmas Card leaves out any mention of Mr. Bush’s lord and personal savior. Instead the card wishes its recipients the politically correct - "Best Wishes for a Happy Holiday Season". The Washington Post has a great story with some fun quotes.
Explaining the card selection Susan Whitson, Laura Bush’s press secretary states:
"Certainly President and Mrs. Bush, because of their faith, celebrate Christmas,"........."Their cards in recent years have included best wishes for a holiday season, rather than Christmas wishes, because they are sent to people of all faiths."
Exactly! Take that Bill! Finally some sense from a White House official - but it gets better. The Rev. Bob Edgar, a former Democratic congressman has the best line:
"I think it's more important to put Christ back into our war planning than into our Christmas cards".
Now there's a bumper sticker for ya.
