In the War on Christmas – candidates from Hillary Clinton to Ben Carson are playing defense – selling horrifying but seasonally appropriate clothing.
The ugly Christmas sweater party is now not just personal – it’s political.
Because while one could judge a presidential candidate on something as boring as his or her voting record – intellectual prowess or vision for the future of this nation – why not base a vote entirely on whose campaign produced the best dorky-on-purpose Christmas sweater?
Lest you think this a mere joke be aware that not one – not two – but three candidates for the highest office in this great nation now offer apparel designed to evoke a giggle combined with deep patriotic fervor.
Which brings us to Dr Ben Carson – neurosurgeon – he of the deep relationship with God and the glancing acquaintance with sociopolitical reality.
