When the Veep needs juice . . .

...he gets some juice. It seems that several journalists were disconnected from a cargo plane's only working power outlet during VP Dick Cheney's recent trip to Iraq. His iPod batteries started to run low, so all work was put aside until he had enough power to get his groove on again. Hey, sometimes you just need more cowbell. You know, we've already read several stories about President Bush's iPod, but between you and me, I've heard that all of his playlists are actually controlled by Cheney.

I call shinanigans on the king of the coeur. what does this have to do with the vp? is it secret code? and when the hell did 'christ' start getting replaced with an 'X' anyway? Is he being censored too? I mean, who says "I'm a practicing x'ian", or "jesus x!".

Frenchie,
Some people don't get all upitty with the 'x' factor because they see Christmas as a secular celebration of family and good will toward men. They've adapted the holiday in much the same way as the Christians did when they piggy-backed Christmas onto pagan winter celebrations in order to win them over. It's all just perspective.

What if we renamed Christmas to "Christmas, the x-pagan winter celebrations" or, "the holiday previously known as Christmas".
