The Way of the Turkey

Scrooged.Title: “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas”

Author: Sarah Palin

Rank: 387

Blurb: “In Good Tidings and Great Joy she calls for bringing back the freedom to express the Christian values of the season. She asserts the importance of preserving Jesus Christ in Christmas — in public displays, school concerts, pageants, and our expressions to one another other — and laments the over-commercialization and homogenization of Christmas in today’s society.”

Review: “Not many days pass any more where I don’t ask myself what has happen to our nation.”

Footnote: The attentive reader will note that we’re cheating this week, selecting a book that’s not in the Top 100.

Or Top 200. Or Top 300.

This book is brand new — published November 12. You’ve heard about this book, since the Usual Suspects who squawk every time Palin shows up on teevee have been making the Usual Noise.

And yet: 387. Unlike Krauthammer (#4), Kilmeade (#5), O’Reilly (#6 and #90), Limbaugh (#15), and Beck (#19).

Wingnuts are still buying books. They’re just not buying Sarah Palin books. Even Sarah Palin books that pander to the War on Christmas crowd.

Folks, it’s time to stick a fork in it. Sarah Palin is done.

The phrase (Luke 2:10, 2:11) is Good tidings OF great joy, which means something quite different.

And also: … and laments the over-commercialization and homogenization of Christmas in today’s society. By publishing her latest publishing venture IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS.

Quelle putz.

@Benedick: All the charm of a Tabasco enema, and the grace of a Dump Truck. How we don’t elect her President for life is a constant mystery to her.

Jesus fuck … Fairway checker wearing a cross yesterday – I said “have a Merry Christmas” …. Have said Happy Holidays to more people than I can count. My entire building is run by Colombians – think it’s pretty safe to put their tips in Christmas cards. Every year a clueless aunt of mine (married my dad’s long dead Jewish brother) sends me a Christmas card with a Bible verse. Do I drive to Pittsburgh and club her to death? No.

We need to stop this nonsense. I am a lapsed Jew. Wish me a Merry Christmas and I love it. Happy Chanukah? Fine. Anything … just make the season warmer, and I am unlikely to smack you.

@Tommmcatt Says Pull My Finger: I hope I never forget “all the charm of a Tabasco enema and the grace of a dump truck.” Bravo!

@lynnlightfoot: Don’t encourage him. Next thing you know he’ll be up on a stripper pole in a jockstrap.

@nojo: Thursday, darling. Tuesday is inappropriate object day.
