Creepy White House Christmas Decorations

Say it ain’t so.  I so hope this is not true.

Why let a holiday season come between the White House and making some political statements? The White House pegged controversial designer Simon Doonan to oversee the Christmas decorations for the White House. Mr. Doonan, who is creative director of Barney’s New York has often caused a stir with his design choices. Like his naughty yuletide window display of Margaret Thatcher as a dowdy dominatrix and Dan Quayle as a ventriloquist’s dummy. For this year’s White House, he didn’t disappoint.

White House Christmas tree. = See pictures of the ornaments.

I do believe it is for real.  I think it was first announced that there would be no Christmas tree as is customary.  It would have been better not to even have one than this.

It’s a Harry, Harry Christmas this year

Harry Reid is on the floor of the Senate pompously invoking Rodney King and saying we should remember the season and “all just get along.”

“Because of the long hours we’ve spent here, for weeks now there’s a lot of tension in the Senate,” Reid said. He invoked Rodney King in asking lawmakers “let’s just all try to get along,” adding that he hoped senators would “go back to their gentlemanly ways.”

He goes on to say:

“For those of the Christian faith, we have the most important holiday and that is Christmas and I hope everyone will keep in mind that that’s a time when we reflect on peace and the good things in life and I hope everybody will set aside personal animosity if they have any and focus on that holiday.”

So he is invoking Rodney King and Christ for his own personal agenda, true hypocrite that he is.  How sickening, when he is the one who scheduled this thing to be right up until Christmas Eve.  See the whole thing here on a CSPAN video:

A short excerpt below:


Yesterday, President Obama said he wanted everybody to stop “carping” about the cost of the proposed health care bill.

Is there a common theme here?  Yeah – they want everybody to just shut the hell up and let this thing pass.

Well, I have a suggestion for Harry:  In honor of the Christmas Season, why don’t you just shut down the Senate so everybody can go home and spend the time with their families.  That would go a long way in “getting along” and then you can come back next year and take up your rape of the American people.  Because YOU are the one who set this controversial bill to be voted on before Christmas, and I guess President Obama, and YOU are the one who negotiated the votes behind closed doors.  Maybe you could honor the Christmas Season by doing away with bribes and corruption under your leadership.

I actually heard a democrat say, oh, this is the way we do it, this is the way we legislate.  I don’t doubt it.  But it’s a matter of the degree of corruption and deception and lying and jiggling the figures around for the desired outcome that is being exposed.  Maybe it’s always been done that way.  Then it’s time it stopped.  The spotlight is on this and the people are watching you.  Maybe we more or less trusted you to do business in an honest way.  That was a mistake and that was stupid of us.

And so what was supposed to be the most transparent administration in history has turned out to be the most secretive and the most corrupt administration in history.

There’s still time to defeat this bill.  It’s not over yet.  Keep fighting, maybe there is at least one honorable democrat in Washington.

I just heard that some democrat in the House is changing parties.  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_congress_party_switch

And all in Washington are wishing each other a Harry, Harry Christmas.  🙂

See this blog for another take.
