The War on Christmas

Now that Thanksgiving's over, we're going to start hearing about it again. But there's a lot of shopping to do--so why not watch this clip from last year's Colbert Christmas special, with Toby Keith. You'll pretty much get the whole issue in about three minutes--both sides of it.The funny thing is, I think Keith means it straightforwardly, but Colbert is ironic. Nonetheless, it's quite fantastical. I especially like the part where Jesus catches Santa Claus after he was shot down--in an American plane.
