Every Year It Starts Earlier....

The war against Christmas, that is. It's absolutely imperative, I know, because Bill O'Reilly has said so, but I wish we could wait another two weeks before attacking Santa Claus and all things nice. But, alas, no.

A new twist this year is the counterattack from the wingnuts. Yes, imagine that! Wingnuts attacking Christmas. But the Christmas ideas they attack are different from the stolidly fundamentalist-patriarchal ones:

A homeowners association in southwestern Colorado has threatened to fine a resident $25 a day until she removes a Christmas wreath with a peace sign that some say is an anti-Iraq war protest or a symbol of Satan.

And did you notice that you get Satan by rearranging Santa? Hmmm.

I better go out to break some Christmas lights.
