Merry Christmas--Politically

Saw this during my rounds of the Gore* and thought it was pretty good.

Christmas cards sent to my friends of different persuasions:

To All My Democrat Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2010, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

To My Republican Friends:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Kind of the way things are these days. :D

*Also something I picked up on my surfs--alluding to Al Gore saying he 'created' the internet.

Those Gorites are so tangled up about a plethera of nonsense they can't really be enjoying life, do you think? They make EVERYTHING so bloody complicated, turning all their issues into a Gordian knot, no pun inteneded.

leazwell: You put it so succinctly! I didn't know how to put the whole deal into words and now you have done it for me. Yes, yes, yes, they have made everything so complicated that they can't POSSIBLY be happy. But then, isn't that what they are all about? Someone somewhere is hungry, sad, homeless, tired, sick, poor, crampy, bloated, etc, etc, etc, so we ALL must be. If we ALL can't be happy at the same level, than we all must be miserable at the same level.
