Gail Collins on the 'imaginary' War on Christmas

After you've read my latest column ("O Holy Fight"), you should be sure to follow up with Gail Collins's latest ("Culture War Games"), which is a variation on the same theme. Collins includes more details, and wonderful details they are, from Sarah Palin's War-on-Christmas book -- in which, I gather, she is named, or at least referenced, as one of those clueless "snickering" pundits who just don't get it. (To be sneered at by Sarah Palin is an honor that I dream not of.)

Bonus: Don't miss this Sarah Palin War-on-Christmas soundboard from the good folks over at New York magazine's Intelligencer blog. Happy Holidays indeed.
