As my wife likes to say, "Somebody had way too much time on their hands."

That was funny! This too has been making the email rounds this year:

"To All My Liberal 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 All My Conservative Friends:


MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!"

There's an element of truth to that... which is what makes it funny.

Thank goodness Moore wasn't a lawyer! :-D

Merry Christmas, TaxProf. Thanks for the laugh.

Kiril,

When you have to assert that something is funny, odds are that it isn't... which isn't surprising in your case (you think the notable lack of any famous conservative comedians is a coincidence? i think not).

Sincerely,

A statistically speaking better educated, higher IQ, wealthier, healthier, liberal.
