Sam of The Majority Report, was on CNN today and debated Bob Knight from the Culture and Family Institute, which is really "Concerned Women for America."

SEDER: Listen, as far as the war on Christmas goes, I feel like we should be waging a war on Christmas. I mean, I believe that Christmas, it's almost proven that Christmas has nuclear weapons, can be an imminent threat to this country, that they have operative ties with terrorists and I believe that we should sacrifice thousands of American lives in pursuit of this war on Christmas. And hundreds of billions of dollars of taxpayer money.

AmericaBlog hearts Sam: "... have to make room in our hearts for Sam Seder of Air America. His "war on Christmas" riff on CNN today will go down as a classic."

Atrios has a transcript up.

Bob thinks that the bogus (and offensive term in context of what is happening in Iraq) "War on Christmas " is an attack on people of faith. Knight also thinks that using the phrase " Happy Holidays," is offensive. Seder wondered how Bob would even get on TV if it wasn't for his claim that faith is being "cleansed" from the public square. You know Bob was in trouble in the segment when he brought up the Nazis. I'd like to find out how much money Jerry Falwell and his buddies have raked in since this started. Oh, and FOX is having a Holiday party.
