Merry Christmas, sucker

So much for the Christmas spirit:
His attendance here at the First Congregational United Church of Christ, with the news media in tow, was as much an observation of faith as it was a rejoinder to baseless e-mailed rumors that he is a Muslim and poses a threat to the security of the United States.
Obama (or it is Osama?) is having to defend himself against attacks on his name, his upbringin, his religion, while Drudge was busy posting a picture of Hillary reminiscent of Rod Stewart's old song "Maggie May", to wit:
the morning sun when it's in her face really shows her age...
Of course, Hil's supporters are likely to remind everyone of the very next line. But for crying out loud, they made her cry! Wait, wasn't that Mitt? Whatever, clearly they both now share something with Jesus.

Meanwhile, a news flash came across CNN asking whether Huckabee's son "hung a dog?". OMG, apparently that banjo playing character in Deliverance was based on Huck's son after all.

In the midst of all this swirling nonsense we have Ron Paul. Speaking of swirling, his supporters bought him a blimp and put his name on it, which floats around. Then every once in awhile they infuse lots more cash. Maybe they're stashing the cash in the blimp because it sure doesn't seem to be getting used effectively. Like in winning a primary. Maybe they're saving it for the independent run he vows not to make, at this point perhaps with John McCain, who made hay out of being endorsed by a liberal who ran against Bush in 2000.

And where is Fred? He seems content with supplying AP and debate show hosts with zingers and one-liners, pointing out the absurdity of everything while his staff actually puts out policy papers, which in part win him endorsements like the one he got today---to absolutely zero fanfare.

All of this is very close to the chaos going on in college football. Perhaps the sign of the end times. Or the end of the year, whichever comes first.
