There can only be one Santa Claus. Posers will be dealt with harshly:
A group of men, believed to be participating in SantaCon, was captured on video throwing blows at the corner of 17th St. and Third Avenue in Manhattan Saturday night.
The Daily News notified cops of the video posted on YouTube. NYPD spokesman Sgt. Lee Jones said later, “We’re looking into it. We don’t have any reported assaults right now. We know about it.”
SantaCon is an annual event where those infused with the Christmas spirit don Santa outfits and then participate in a pub crawl.
Roughly eight Santas were involved in the rumble.
While that was going on, Rudolph and Blitzen were around the corner knocking off a liquor store.
Ah, Christmas in the era of Hope & Change.
Because I know your Christmas season isn’t complete without a “countdown to the Obamacare deadline” Advent Calendar, here you go. December 15th is my favorite: “You won’t be charged more just because you’re a woman.” Women won’t be charged less, either, because men will be charged for things like maternity coverage to level the playing field upward.
Also, because intruding on Thanksgiving wasn’t enough, OFA is also trying to ruin Christmas dinner:
Because what better way to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ than by selling your family on a law that was passed based on one of the biggest lies of all time?
There is no “off” position on the White House’s genius switch:
And Noah Webster wept, for these dipshits were now also in charge of health care as well as education.
The White House Twitter operator had a struggle too, because the spell-check kept trying to change “give your mom piece of mind” to “give your mom a chunk of somebody’s brain.”
This is not something I’d be proud to say in public, but Chris Matthews seems happy to brag about it:
“Don’t you regret that you solemnized the marriage between the responsible Republican Party of John McCain and Sarah Palin?” Matthews asked. As one of John McCain’s lead advisers in 2008, Schmidt was integral in the decision to bring Sarah Palin on as the vice presidential candidate.
“At least I got my thrill up my leg from Obama,” Matthews continued. “You got it from Sarah Palin.” He couldn’t get through that last part without laughing.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
The White House has achieved its desired outcome the day after Nelson Mandela’s memorial: Everybody’s talking about President Obama.
Front and center on the New York Post:
A close second to this 2009 headline.
After (also notice the seating position change):
Prediction: When they get back to D.C., more money will be diverted from food stamps to fund Michelle’s “Let’s Move.”
Florida Rep. Alan Grayson has many times said that Wall Street greed is what’s wrong with America, and he supports “Occupy Wall Street.”
However, Grayson doesn’t hate Wall Street so much that he doesn’t help fund it by sinking millions of his own cash into securities. In any case, Grayson’s recently been relieved of any hypocrisy:
U.S. Representative Alan Grayson, a Florida Democrat, lost about $18 million in a scheme involving a Reston, Virginia-based firm that loaned customers funds in exchange for securities posted as collateral, his office said on Monday.
The loss was confirmed by Lauren Doney, communications director of Grayson’s office in Washington, D.C., who said the firm in question “sold the congressman’s collateral without his permission.”
The head of the firm, William Dean Chapman, was sentenced to a lengthy prison term by a federal court judge in Alexandria, Virginia, last week for defrauding scores of investors of more than $35 million.
Oh the hypocrisy-induced schadenfreude.
It’s official: One of Melissa Harris-Perry’s tampon earrings slipped deep into an ear canal and soaked up any remaining intelligence.
Did you see Harris-Perry on MSNBC say that “Obamacare” is a term coined by “wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man, to render him inferior and unequal to diminish his accomplishments”? Of course you didn’t, because she said it on MSNBC.
Just a couple of weeks before that, Harris-Perry casually used the term “Obamacare”:
MSNBC is some kind of clown show.

I never cease to be amazed at the lengths this man will go in order to portray himself as the victim:
The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said:
BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was shortly after, asked for a meeting at the White House, for something that he was interested in. He brought a delegation in. My staff said I can’tve you’re going to do this. I said, it’s my job, he’s a senior member of Congress. They came and left. As far as they knew, I did not even remember what had happened. I was able to do that, because of what Nelson Mandela did for me, the way he helped me.
Bubba does remember his role in all that, doesn’t he? Probably not.
God bless the veterans of the Pearl Harbor attack and those who were killed on that day 72 years ago today, as well as all those whose subsequent sacrifices led America to ultimate victory.
Here are some tweets I ran across this morning about the attack and the anniversary:
The declaration of war:
Japan’s Commander-in-Chief of the Combined Fleet Isoroku Yamamoto knew the attack was a mistake:
Search engine remembrances: Google vs. Bing.
Lastly, I’d be remiss if I didn’t include this that a lot of people are talking about…
SpaghettiOs remembered Pearl Harbor Day:
Dan Riehl’s been reminding anybody who’s been questioning that about Campbell’s long history of pro-American marketing themes. It it different? Sure. Offensive or dismissive in any way? I don’t think so. At least they remembered, and maybe that’ll get the attention of some kids who might otherwise not be talking about this in school.
How many companies either aren’t aware of the Pearl Harbor anniversary or won’t care enough to mention it at all?
Update: They deleted the tweet, but I didn’t think that was necessary (screen shots at the link above).
