John Dingell is the New Kris Kringle

Ann Coulter's War on Christmas
A Traditional Coultergeist Christmas

Congressman John D. Dingell is currently the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives. He is well respected on both sides of the aisle. In 2005, Despite the war in Iraq and other national concerns, the Republican led Congress spent their time voting and passing resolutions about things like flag-burning and Terry Schiavo.

Near the end of the 2005, FOX News started running propaganda about an alleged "War on Christmas." Following the bidding of their corporate masters, the Republican members of the House of Representatives started running their latest version of empty, diversionary politics - House Resolution 579 to "preserve Christmas." (Like Christmas **somehow** needed saving, and this concept was more important than other issues facing the government at the time.)

In defiance to the Republican's ridiculous position on House Resolution 579, Dingell recited the poem below on the floor of the US House of Representatives. It was a bold and gutsy move, thumbing his nose at those in power and laying bare the foolishness of the house Republicans.

In his own way, Congressman John Dingell saved Christmas for those of us that were cringing in horror at the colossal turds of duplicity that the Republican led congress were peddling at the time. Somebody was at last speaking out to the evil imperialist morons in power.

Dingell's HOLIDAY Jingle for O'Reilly and House GOP

Congressman John D. DingellWashington, DC - Congressman John D. Dingell (MI-15) recited the following poem on the floor of the US House of Representatives concerning House Resolution 579 on December 14, 2005, which expressed the sense of the House of Representatives that the symbols and traditions of Christmas should be protected. "Preserving Christmas" has been a frequent topic for conservative talk show hosts, including Fox News's Bill O'Reilly:

'Twas the week before Christmas and all through the House

No bills were passed 'bout which Fox News could grouse;

Tax cuts for the wealthy were passed with great cheer,

So vacations in St. Barts soon would be near;

Katrina kids were nestled all snug in motel beds,

While visions of school and home danced in their heads;

In Iraq our soldiers needed supplies and a plan,

Plus nuclear weapons were being built in Iran;

Gas prices shot up, consumer confidence fell;

Americans feared we were on a fast track to... well...

Wait--- we need a distraction--- something divisive and wily;

A fabrication straight from the mouth of O'Reilly

We can pretend that Christmas is under attack

Hold a vote to save it--- then pat ourselves on the back;

Silent Night, First Noel, Away in the Manger

Wake up Congress, they're in no danger!

This time of year we see Christmas every where we go,

From churches, to homes, to schools, and yes...even Costco;

What we have is an attempt to divide and destroy,

When this is the season to unite us with joy

At Christmas time we're taught to unite,

We don't need a made-up reason to fight

So on O'Reilly, on Hannity, on Coulter, and those right wing blogs;

You should just sit back, relax...have a few egg nogs!

'Tis the holiday season: enjoy it a pinch

With all our real problems, do we honestly need another Grinch?

So to my friends and my colleagues I say with delight,

A merry Christmas to all,

and to Bill O'Reilly...Happy Holidays.

Chris: Digell's poem may not be the first to speak out against Fox News' crazy little fantasy war, but he was certainly one of the best.

Randal Graves: Ack! I would, except I think that we need him too much in congress, keeping those neocons in order!

Swinebread: Yes, that certainly gave Bill O'Reilly a hard on.

dguzman: Ha! He sure does, and experience to boot.

Liberality: Oh, I'm not removing ice. I am hiding my house pretending that it's not there!

Pete Bogs: What? Do I look like a dietician? I'm just a hack blogger. ;o)

M.Yu: Burp! So does Thanksgiving!

Comrade Kevin: Whatever you say. I believe that you can get it retail at Wal-Mart!

Distributorcap: I actually posted it last year as well. I love this poem.
