Beth sent me a good article:

Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, and the rest of the "Island of Misfit Toys" gang believe with all their might that, if America will just leave Iraq, all the terrorists will magically disappear! They believe that the UN and the EU can somehow make Iran's weapons-grade uranium go away. And if we all just put down our guns and give Cindy Sheehan a great, big Christmas hug, peace on earth will surely follow.

The husband and I heard John Lennon's "Happy Xmas" song this morning. I remarked that the line "War is over / if you want it" is about the biggest idealistic pile of crap ever. Gee, if we just wish real hard, war will stop all over the world.

Of course, I've been ticked at Lennon ever since I read this, so I was ready for a fight when his song came on.

1 Just had to stop by and wish you a Merry Christmas and tell you that I'm keeping you and your soldier in my prayers every day. Happy New Year too.

2 You know what? I've heard that song HUNDREDS of times, but until a couple of days ago, never realized what those kids were singing in the background. I used to like that song, and now I can't listen to it without hearing "war is over, if you want it" and having a new understanding of the line about having a Christmas "without any fear." I can't believe a Christmas song was made political and anti-war like that! It's so.... I dunno.... so YUCK. I'm at a loss for words.
