The Bore On Christmas

By  | 

Okay, show of hands…

Who’s getting sick of Fox News trying to push the “War On Christmas” meme? Who agrees with Fox?

Personally, I think this is a pretty weird push by Fox, and a fairly transparently partisan one at that. Also, as far as I can see, nobody else besides Fox is pushing this story. But I have seen our local Fox affiliate here in Kansas City pick it up and run with it in no less than two stories in four days.

And really, war? That’s just plain disrespectful to our men and women around the globe fighting the various fronts of on the war on terrorism. Not to mention that I think this argument basically boils down to a want by some conservatives to further commercialize a holiday that should be less about what we buy and more about who we’re with.

In any event, let’s get some discussion going. I’d like to hear your thoughts.
