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.
