“This year, I was lucky enough to get an invitation to the White House media holiday party, which would have been called a Christmas party if U.S. Grant were still president.” – Bill O’Reilly
Strenuous efforts to uphold the banner of Christ in the White House continue, although they appear increasingly strained. Careful observers have discovered a Mao ornament on a White House tree, from which all manner of fevered speculation has spawned.
As the observers themselves note, “edgy “window dresser Simon Doonan was engaged for the White House decorating effort, delivering his patented mixture of familiar faces mobilized to dubious ends. The troubling ornament appears to reference Andy Warhol’s Mao series for whatever reason.
Warhol was a fine Republican artist who painted Ronald Reagan as well, and even attended Reagan’s inaugural.
Also on the prowl for atheists in office is former he-man Chuck Norris, who entertains the readers of World Net Daily with fanciful readings of past presidents’ Jesus-relating.
Norris complains that Barack Obama let down Team Jesus by not refuting eccentric Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Ahmadinejad claims the US is busy trying to hold back the return of the Mahdi, Islam’s ass-kickiest Imam, who is expected to pair up with Jesus at some point and redeem mankind.
Chuck touts two web sites as delivering the steaming Christianity we demand in our leaders, but I fear he may be misreading them. A search of WhiteHouseChristmasCards.com delivers no results for Ronald Reagan, and surely Reagan should provide some Jesus-mongering material.
And I’m afraid “Christmas with the Presidents” doesn’t provide the firm slap of theology Chuck’s audience craves either.
The document provides breathless detail on presidential holiday minutia with little proof of Christ’s grip on the White House.
And triteness sparkles throughout:
