All along we thought it was the anti-religious who were waging war against Christmas. It turns out the attack is more subtle and strategic:
David Hedrick, a Tea Partier who launched an eventually unsuccessful run for Congress after achieving viral fame for a combative tirade at a town hall meeting in the summer of 2009, is supposedly out to save Christmas from Barack Obama with a new Tea Party children’s book.
From the advance looks at the publication, “The Liberal Clause,” looks to pick up in the same vein that his rant against retiring Rep. Brian Baird (D-Wash.) left off.
In 2009, Hedrick vehemently charged that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi should be checking her sleeve for Nazi insignia. Now, he’s toning down his message for a younger audience by telling a holiday tale of a socialist Santa, Barry “The Liberal Claus” Obama—who is possibly not actually born in the North Pole—and his diminutive companion “Elf Peloosi.” From what he provides on the site, it looks like we can expect appearances by “Mr. Snore” (Al Gore), a Glenn Beck-watching family, Stalin, Hugo Chavez, and at least one hippie, among others.
