    Found this excerpt online. I’m not sure whether I believe she is crazy enough to believe this is going on all over America or if she simply wants to scare her moronic followers into believing it (or both?).

    But there are many people who haven’t merely lost, misplaced, or forgotten the true meaning of Christmas, they’re trying to actively target it to destroy it. And these true Scrooges have a frightening amount of power.

    This modern-day Scrooge—lets call him “Joe McScrooge” for short—threatens to destroy every last bit of Christmas cheer we have left.

    Let me set the scene:

    It was too cold, the wind was too strong, and his rental car smelled vaguely of cigarette smoke. His plane had been thirty minutes late, and Joe McScrooge was angry. While he waited for his car to heat up, he turned on the satellite radio, which was thankfully already tuned to NPR. The host was interviewing a man who was helping underprivileged children overcome their religious superstition, intolerance, and bullying tendencies.

    He glanced at the clock: 6:35. The airport was at least twenty minutes from Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, according to his GPS, so he had no time to waste to get to his son’s Winter program.

    It was his first visit to this small Pennsylvania town since his ex-wife gained custody and moved almost two thousand miles away from the warm sands of New Mexico. He turned up the radio and listened to the host’s calming voice. He needed to hear some reasonable conversation before the forced sentimentality of the school program.

    It was dusk, but he could still check out the town through the glass of his windshield. Shabby. Low-class. A strip mall here, a strip mall there—no apparent zoning rules or urban planning. And, of course, there it was, the inevitable Wal-Mart Supercenter. He snorted to himself as he passed a fast-food restaurant with a sign that read,

    JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON

    What the heck does religion have to do with french fries?

    At a stop sign, a man walked his huge unpedigreed dog in front of Joe’s car into a small park that had a sign:

    PRIVATE RYAN REYNOLDS CITY PARK

    There, across the field, out of the corner of his eye, he noticed a cross next to a statue of a soldier kneeling in prayer. His grip tightened on the steering wheel. “As if only Christians have died for their country,” he said to himself as he watched the sweaterless dog shake free of his master’s grip on the leash. “Our wars aren’t holy wars, our soldiers aren’t holy men, and that’s a government park.”

    He pushed it from his mind as he drove into the center of town. Wreaths were hanging from every storefront. Christmas lights wrapped around the light poles were blinking relentlessly. Red ribbons flapped sloppily in the breeze, Joe noticed. The lights were multicolored and garish, and Joe was annoyed at their distraction. As he drove closer to the court square, however, his jaw dropped.

    There, right next to the courthouse—between a metal newspaper box and a ridiculously oversized menorah—was the unmistakable outline of a Nativity scene. It included the baby Jesus, the “virgin” Mary, and her gullible fiancé, Joseph. The only miracle in that story was the fact that Joseph apparently fell for Mary’s story of a divine insemination.

    The Bible’s no better than The Jerry Springer Show, Joe thought. How on earth do these people believe such drivel? He took the turn slowly, checking out the cheap plastic baby Jesus doll nestled in hay.

    This is the woman who trusted Prayer Warriors more than her advisors during the ’08 campaign. I think it’s both.

    The War on Christmas starts earlier every year.

    Is this straight out of The Onion or what?

    No wonder they are shutting down next year. Real life has truly caught up with them.

    Could we get “News” to run over there and interview some of the people that will stand in the inevitable line for this? At the very least, I’d like to know who is helping Sarah write her name in all those big books.

    Holy hell there’s no reason I should have laughed that hard at this. But I did.

    Like Tom Lehrer quitting:

    “Political satire became obsolete when Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize”

    Sarah Palin in town = newsworthy.

    Interviewing people standing in line = not newsworthy.

    Hope you got your book signed!
