Screw you and the reindeer you rode in on

Ahh, Christopher Hitchens. Always amusingly pissed off about something. This time it's Christmas, and the article Bah, Humbug - The horrors of December in a one-party state is funny because, well, it's very very true. He has this to say to Fox News and others bitterly complaining about the lack of Christ in the Christmas decorations in stores such as Walmart:
...there are millions of well-appointed buildings all across the United States, most of them tax-exempt and some of them receiving state subventions, where anyone can go at any time and celebrate miraculous births and pregnant virgins all day and all night if they so desire. These places are known as 'churches,' and they can also force passersby to look at the displays and billboards they erect and to give ear to the bells that they ring. In addition, they can count on numberless radio and TV stations to beam their stuff all through the ether. If this is not sufficient, then god damn them. God damn them everyone.
Rock on Christopher Hitchens!

Surfing around links to that Hitchens article, I came here - you may be interested in the 'chat' "Hitchens" just had with "Bush" posted on our blog - Also, Bush 'discusses' the Christmas issue with Scott, the press sec.
