The ultimate outrage: Fox News airhead disses Festivus (of “Seinfeld” fame)

Gretchen Carlson, whose qualifications as a broadcaster are not readily apparent, counters the so-called War on Christmas with a slap at Festivus (as in “Festivus for the rest of us”), which was made famous by the classic sitcom “Seinfeld” in the 1990s.

Is nothing sacred?

  1. Sorry Pat,
    I listened to about 15 seconds of O’Reily and then had to click away.

    Like many of the female broadcasters on Fox News, her qualifications are in her shirt.

    I am sure you will all find her a genius when she goes to CNN.

    (In regard to the notion that Fox News only airs physically attractive women: Gretchen Carlson is the least attractive female currently on Fox News–of course, Greta Van Susteren is not part of this consideration because of her unfair disadvantage.)

    For those of you who may have missed this one . Samantha Bee lays it all out and gives rise to my last comment.

    I really like the part when Bill-o says you can have free speech without being disrespectful, this coming from someone who, when he doesn’t like your free speech will shout over you or cut off your microphone. Hmm…

  6. Get over it, Christmas is celebrated because of the birth of Jesus Christ.

    To bad that 80% of Americans call themselves Christian and we have to be “politically correct” and give it up for those that aren’t.

    She is a lot more qualified then th blogger that puts this in the left wind rrstar.

  7. Dave: Exactly what is it that have to give up? Has somebody stolen your Christmas? They haven’t stolen mine. I love Christmas, but I don’t worry about how other people celebrate it or not.

    The above posts actually capture the spirit and meaning of Festivus.

    We all congregate to tell each other in which ways we’ve disappointed one another over the course of the last year. Now, we’ve just got to find an application to carry out the requisite Festivus “Feats of Strength”.

    It’s the Happy Holidays to some, Winter Holiday to some, Hanukkah to some, Winter Solstice to some, Kwanzaa to some, Merry Christmas to some, and Festivus for the rest of us!!!!!

    I don’t know whether it’s funny or pathetic that people latch onto a 90s sitcom and decide to make it into their real holiday. Probably both. I’ve always thought Seinfeld was annoying.
