Christmas Spin

When the Washington, DC Christmas tree was renamed to the Holiday Tree sometime during the 1990s, the press somehow managed to completely ignore the event. Notwithstanding the long tradition of having a Christmas tree, and the undeniable fact that roughly 75 percent of Americans self-identify as Christian.

However, when the Speaker of the House of Representatives insists on renaming said tree to its traditional name of 'Christmas Tree', somehow that is news-worthy. I wonder how we got to the point where our media is more interested in destroying our cultural traditions than they are in assisting their President in defeating a deadly enemy. Sad, isn't it?

Hat tip to Matt Drudge.
