Triangulating ‘Round the Tree

“Obama lights the National Christmas Tree, says ‘Merry Christmas’ three times,” Andrew Malcolm writes at the L.A. Times, with more than a little satire implied in the subtext of his headline.

(I’ll bet the Christmas sermon at Rev. Wright’s Trinity United must be quite a manger burner.)

Malcolm’s headline last year at this time was even more fun: “Allegedly green Obama lights National Christmas Tree, leaves them on.”

I wonder how the ceremony plays at MSNBC and Newsweek? And speaking of Newsweek, for those on both sides of the aisle who write Al Gore as president revisionist history, how would the Goracle have handled this key event in, as Charles Krauthammer once quipped, “a predecessor religion to environmentalism called Christianity?”
