The Annual War On Christmas Begins

Stinking Chafee sneering at Christmas.

Anyone who doesn’t get why RINOs must be driven out of the GOP and off the edge of the nearest cliff needs look no farther than Lincoln Chafee, whom checkered-pants–wearing party bigwigs supported at the expense of conservatives in his Senate days. After treacherously betraying the party, Chafing finally abandoned it, with the insolent insouciance of a heel dumping the doting wife he had been cheating on. Now he has enlisted in the liberal War on Christmas:
A Rhode Island lawmaker is calling Gov. Lincoln Chafee “Governor Grinch” after he defied lawmakers and decided that the state would have a “holiday tree” instead of a “Christmas tree.”
Fortunately there are countermoonbats even in liberal New England.
Rep. Doreen Costa, called the governor a “Grinch.”

“He’s just to the left as far as left as you can possibly be,” the Republican lawmaker told Fox News & Commentary. “He tries to be politically correct 24-7.”

Costa sponsored a resolution last January declaring the tree customarily erected in December be referred to as a “Christmas tree and not as a ‘holiday tree’ or other non-traditional terms.”

“He is refusing to honor what’s passed in the House of Representatives,” she said. “That’s more concerning than anything else.”

Costa said the governor’s rebuff has become her line in the sand.

“I’m sick of being politically correct,” she said. “Nobody’s been offended by calling a Christmas tree a Christmas tree. If we have a Menorah in the State House, what are we going to call it — a candle with sticks?”

So Costa has decided to erect her own Christmas tree — at the State House. And she plans on lighting it on Dec. 6 — the same day Chafee plans to host the official “holiday” tree lighting event.

“We’re going to sing Christmas carols and drink hot chocolate,” she said. “And I’m going to make a sign — Christmas tree lighting to the right and holiday tree to the left. We’ll see who gets the crowd.”
Kudos to Rep. Costa. As for the ignominious Stinking Chafee: let him serve as a warning as to what you may be crawling into bed with if you tolerate RINOs...
