Christmas under siege? Please!

Maybe I'm late to the game here, but I'm picking up on a lot of hot air being blown around about a war for Christmas being waged.

Since the war in Iraq is all bad news, and social security reform even has republicans scared, the right is manufacturing their own leading stories on this so-called xmas jihad.

Media Matters debunks these claims one by one here...
Bill O'Reilly - "Christmas Under Siege: The Big Picture" , "Somewhere Jesus is weeping"
and my favorite quip to a Jewish caller: "[I]f you are really offended, you gotta go to Israel"
Patrick Buchanan - "Christianophobia"
Jerry Fallwell - "The Impending Death of Christmas?"

In other news, maybe Santa really is under attack...

O'Reilly is a fool.

I wish it went without saying... but it really needs to be said often!
