Like his commander-in-chief, O'Reilly declares "Mission Accomplished" too soon

Reported by Chrish - December 18, 2007 -

As Deborah has been reporting, last week Bill O'Reilly reveled in his success at beating back the Christmas-haters, with the delusional claim that "A few years ago there was a movement to wipe out all vestiges of Christmas in the public square. If I had not done that campaign, the forces of darkness would have won. But we won, and to diminish what we did is wrong." He repeated that sentiment and pronounced "The far-left secular progressive community is furious, furious, I tell you about losing the war on Christmas."

He's going to be furious, furious, I tell you, when he learns that Santa got the axe in Washington.

RawStory.com reports that

"The war on Christmas has begun in earnest. The US Chamber of Commerce has fired Santa.

Saying they were responding to tough new lobbying rules recently passed by the Democratic Congress, the Chamber has booted Santa from their annual holiday fete.

Photos taken with Santa, they say, could constitute "gifts of value" under the new rules."

Maybe the big guy will put on a red suit and crash the party, gratis.
