Sarah Palin is saving Christmas


Aborting Christ on Christmas achieves a trifecta of the kind of paranoiac pronouncements she specializes in. Palin speaks with the subtlety of a buzzsaw, which is why she’s so beloved by the most reactionary people in the nation.

Abortion, atheism and the murder of Christ all in the same sentence, all calculated to hit the alarm bells of the most credulous, often without them even noticing the sleight of hand. But this is the language of a fanatic repackaged in fake folksy charm.

There’s a war waging in Sarah’s life alright, but it’s one of her own making, and her target appears to be the American constitution, not just Christmas.
