Christmas bailout eliminates need for war

Big guy won't be happy without a bailout...

Big guy won't be happy without a bailout...

How to respond to liberals’ yearly “War on Christmas?”  Fire some of their own socialist secular medicine up to the North Pole and declare a “Christmas bailout.”

With the government on the brink of rescuing the U.S. auto industry, we have learned that the Treasury Department is drawing up plans to bail out Christmas. “We have reason to believe,” said a person close to the matter, “that without an immediate capital injection, Santa Claus will fail before December 24.” Mr. Claus could not be reached for comment.

One might think that, even though this guy looks serious, if he’s humorous enough to pen a column depicting Santa Claus’ elves involved in an elaborate, Lehman Brothers-backed securites exchange scheme, then he might recognize the absurdity of claiming that the economic meltdown actually was caused by people’s “inability” to say “Merry Christmas.”

Oops.  Guess not.
