Santa! FUCK YEAH!

From the Holly-Jolly uber-conservatives at Human Events comes a patriotic selection of Christmas ornaments, including George W. Bush (with extra sparkle!) and what appears to be the Team America Santa.

Why the fuck would anyone want George Bush on their christmas tree? Regardless of political stance.

As the Brits would say, "for irony".

(Yeah, I know that's not exactly what irony means in the dictionary, but most Brits I know use it this way)

I didn't realize Santa Claus was an American. His reputation for going around and giving stuff away for free would, I think, put him solidly in the Liberal camp.

I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth.

I am happy that Santa is with us and not against us though.

ok, XQUZYPHYR, I can't reach that site, mefi must be straining it...but I just want to go on record as saying I see Bush more in the elf role than as St. Nick. But that's just me, and for those of you $200+kers who do see him as Santa, don't forget to leave out some milk & cookies.

Ohhh, so the reason why Santa's never visited me before isn't because I'm not Christian, but rather that I'm not patriotic. I get it now! And I thought the issue was the whole "Jewish" thing. The world makes sense again. Carry on, carry on.

...and yet, the idea of pluggin' in the juice, flicking the switch, and lighting that fucker up like he was in ole sparky has an almost magnetic attraction for me...

Aww, madamjujujive. He looks so innocent and edible as a cookie.

Rich kids get better presents. Santa's a Republican.

including George W. Bush

I thought it looked more like Orrin Hatch.

And maybe Santa cost more because they had to pay the dude off to get him to pose in that coat.

I can't believe George W. Bush is President.

I just cannot believe it.

The leaves of brown came tumblin' down, remember
In September in the rain
The sun went out just like a dying ember
That September in the rain

To every word of love I heard you whisper
The raindrops seemed to play a sweet refrain

Though spring is here, to me it's still September
That September in the rain

------ harmonica solo ------

To every word of love I heard you whisper
The raindrops seemed to play a sweet refrain

Though spring is here, to me it's still September
That September in the rain
That September in the rain

As someone who voted for Bush, I cannot agree more. Stupid.

Santa wears all red and gives presents to people regardless of their income level.

Dude's a fuckin' commie.

And where are the WMDs with extra sparkle? Surely Our Leader (wasn't his mother a virgin?) has reason for being a hollow ornament!

$49.95 for the Republican Party Animal -- what a bargain. I'm buying several for my friends and family.

Damn you, XQUZYPHYR! I was planning a FPP on bizarre Christmas ornaments... er..I just had to find more than one link.

Crush The Liberals Holiday Ornaments because nothing says "Have a holly, jolly Christmas" quite like an elephant peeing on a liberal.

Or what about a
Sterling Silver "Support Our Troops" Christmas Ball for $29.95? Just in case you wanted to support the troops without taking the chance of possibly scratching your car's paint. (Or without actually asking congress to increase death/medical benefits for the troops.)

Well, if you were to put the question as "who would want to see George Bush hanging from a tree?", I guess the answer would be "quite a lot of people!".
