The Daily Show on the 'War on Christmas'

(Posted 12/7/2010) - Sometimes a particularly insightful satirical commentary clarifies a whole category of human silliness. The trumped up anger by those who say they fear the loss of Christian Values each holiday season is just one instance of a class of hyperbole that finds its way into the public discourse with tenacious regularity.

Listen to this Daily Show deconstruction of the latest example of canned rage against 'The War on Christmas' by Gretchen Carlson of Fox News. I think the video is hilarious -- and a spot on indictment of those who bemoan a change in 'values' that implies a homogoneity that has never existed across society, only in the minds of a rather reactionary minority.

Hope you enjoy the eight plus minutes of video -- I sure did!
