    Right-wing crazies attack their own in "war on Christmas"

    More on the "war on Christmas" from American Progress:

    The right-wing has recently begun propagating the "War on Christmas" conspiracy. The myth, which has repeatedly cropped up in American history, attempts to suggest that progressives are anti-religious. The conservative Alliance Defense Fund said it would pursue legal action over perceived attempts by "government officials to censor Christmas carols, eliminate all references to Christmas, or silence those who celebrate Christ's birth." The Alliance has a new target: the White House. The Washington Post reports today that President Bush sent out the White House "Christmas" card omitting any mention of Christmas and instead referring to the "holiday season." "This clearly demonstrates that the Bush administration has suffered a loss of will and that they have capitulated to the worst elements in our culture," said William A. Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights. Bush "claims to be a born-again, evangelical Christian. But he sure doesn't act like one," said Joseph Farah, editor of the conservative Web site WorldNetDaily.com.

    Well, at least by fighting a war without an opponent you are sure to win. The real goal, however, is distraction from real issues.
