My Christmas Wish List

by Daniel Short

Merry Christmas to you all - that's right, I said MERRY CHRISTMAS! If that offends you, you are obviously on the wrong blog. I heard that Barbara Walters questioned the Christmas card that she received from the White House because it contained a Bible verse. She wondered aloud if Jews and Muslims received the same card? The last time I checked, Christmas was a Christian holiday celebrating the birth of Christ. Barbara, I don't think Jews or Muslims celebrate unless they own a retail outlet and the sales are brisk. This is still a country based on Christian values and traditions - even if it is fading before our eyes. Lighten up Walters.

Now for my wishes!

My wish for Mike Sodrel - Lots and lots of campaign contributions to help get that message out. The do nothing congress finally did something. They once again intruded upon our freedoms to make choices for ourselves and our families by mandating higher costs for transportation and likely less safe vehicles by upping the mileage standards. Hey Congress, cars already exist that get 35 miles per gallon - we can buy them if we want to, not because we have to. Call me Mike, I have some great ideas for this upcoming fight.

My wish for Mike Huckabee - Thick Skin. Welcome to the lead Mr. Huckabee, where everyone will shoot you in the back. Take joy in the barbs for they will sharpen your skills for your Fall 08 showdown with the Clinton attack dogs. Chin up, chest out, running shoes on!

My wish for all you middle America conservatives - Stamina! We know who we are, we know what we stand for, we know we are the spine of this nation - we are the real America. Be relentless - tell everyone you know what is important in this election. Do not let up, even if it looks promising for the right. Let's renew our commitment to changing America for the better, from local to national. We formed it, now let's take it back.
Jeff Foxworthy made this comment on the CMA show this year about folks like us, "we get up and go to work, we get up and go to church and we get up and go to war if we are asked to." AMEN

Merry Christmas to you all and to all good 2008.
