Ruining Christmas

I know it's all extraordinarily silly, but the wingnuts have succeeded in taking something which most people find to be quite a nice holiday, whether a secular or religious one, and politicized the shit out of it. I don't give a shit whether people say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays or pass the vodka or whatever. The basic reason I tend to say happy holidays for most of the month of December is that it feels pretty stupid saying "Merry Christmas" when it's a month away from the actual date. Come Christmas I'll be wishing everyone a "Merry Christmas," but on December 1?

CNN, in its neverending quest to out-Fox Fox, just did another goddamn segment on this fake "controversy."
