-Headline of the Day-
"Inhofe refuses to participate in 'holiday' parade."
Give him credit for waiting until December to launch the War Against the War on Christmas. Sen. James Inhofe took a break from climate change denial to engage in pointless demagoguery over a made-up issue of very little importance. It seems that Tulsa is having a Holiday Parade of Lights and this is the worst thing ever.
See, it used called the Christmas Parade of Lights, but then someone figured out that not all Tulsans (Tulsaites?) are Christian and maybe it'd be a good idea to celebrate all their holidays, rather than just the Christian people's. This is commonly referred to as "not being a dick about it."
But if Jim Inhofe is anything at all, he's a dick. So he's not joining in on the parade. "Last year, the forces of political correctness removed the word 'Christmas' and replaced it with 'Holiday' instead," he said. "I am deeply saddened and disappointed by this change."
Doesn't Sen. Jim know that Oklahoma children come from miles around to specifically see him in this parade? Children will cry, "Wah! Where's Senator Inhofe? Wah! Christmas is ruined! Wah!"
Won't Jim Inhofe think of the children? (Tulsa World)
-Palin hates America-
War Room reports, "Sarah Palin's political action committee paid $10,000 in October to a consulting firm that also works for George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist who is a left-wing bogeyman to many of Palin's supporters." No big deal, right?
Wrong. At least, if you use Palin's own logic. Remember how Sarah used a tenuous connection between to people to prove that a certain presidential candidate was "palling around with terrorists?" This is pretty much the same thing.
Sara Palin is palling around with the Father of All Things Evil. Case closed. (War Room)
"Merry Xmas, 2 Million Americans Who Just Lost Unemployment Checks!"
Have Republicans fixed the economy yet? (Wonkette)
