Bah Humbug

There is no better person to represent the GOP's holiday--I mean Christmas--spirit than Ebenezer Scrooge. From their latest budget bill:
House and Senate GOP leaders agreed yesterday to a five-year budget plan for cutting spending for Medicaid and other entitlement programs by $41.6 billion and a separate measure to open the Alaskan wilderness to oil drilling.
You gotta love it when the House speaker, Dennis Hastert, cries out that we should rename the "Holiday Tree" to the "Capitol Christmas Tree" one day, and a few days later tries to push through these budget cuts to popular programs. And I'm supposed to be the Christmas villian for occasionally saying "Happy Holidays"? I'm really at a loss for words.

Merry Christmas, oh generous Republicans. Merry Christmas indeed.
