Santa, baby…. please…. we know what we want. Now do your job.
First of all Santa, we apologize for communicating with you so late in the season and day. We have been extraordinarily busy of late. We have forwarded this communication to you not only via United States Postal Service but via email as well. We hope all is well with you.
As we understand it Santa, in order to comply with wish requests you have a system to determine classification and eligibility of gifts by the requestor. You have “a list”. You check that “list” twice to verify the accuracy of the information therein. (For the record, we have a “list” too and Obama is on it). You then Santa, verify through past actions the record of the person on the “list” to classify and verify whether that person has been “naughty or nice”.
Santa, it appears you are quite through in your analysis. You take into account the totality of the person, their full experience. Apparently your analytical skills are at such a heightened level of alert that you are able to determine at any moment whether the target of your analysis is “sleeping” or “awake”.
After your analysis you classify the person requesting a gift as either being “naughty or nice” – your first major filter – you then make a final determination and classify the person as “good” or “bad”.
Santa, we are requesting a change of procedure regarding how our gift request is handled. Although we have been exceptionally good this year Santa we do not believe you should waste your precious time bothering with us. No need to worry about who or what we are – what matters is what we write and what we request. Are we telling the truth Santa? Are our facts accurate Santa?
What we want and what we do is not about us. Don’t bother checking our histories or who our pictures reference or really anything about us. This is not about us. This is about something much bigger.
As we just wrote Santa, this is not about us. This is about a lot of lives and what kind of world we want to live in. Santa, please look at what we write and analyze whether we are telling the truth or not.
The truth is Santa, that where you live – by anecdotal evidence the North Pole, the polar ice caps are melting. You might soon not have a place to call home. The world is in turmoil all around this wonderful globe you traverse every Christmas eve. The people of the country we live in, the United States, are besieged by a criminal gang which runs the country.
The people of the United States deserve better Santa. The people of the United States are good people. However Santa, the people of the United States are not only oppressed by the criminal gang running the country – the people of the United States are further oppressed by a thing called the Big Media Party which does not inform but rather is pushing their own agenda for their own purposes and power. We can’t really in one quick letter explain it all Santa, you will have to get a fuller story from doing your own investigation. We recommend our website http://www.HillaryIs44.org, as well as http://www.DailyHowler.org, and http://www.MediaMatters.org.
What we propose Santa is that you investigate, not us, but the recipient of our gift request.
The recipient of our proposed gift Santa is one Hillary Clinton (she has a middle name but for reasons too long to explain here, involving another candidate, there is a current ban on the use of middle names).
For comparative purposes Santa, reference this article about a person who shamelessly attacks unions, deceives on Social Security and is hurting the need for change to a UNIVERSAL health care system. Big Blogs Santa are joining this creature in his campaign of lies. We’ll have more about all this Santa, after Christmas, and beyond Santa. (For now, we think you should leave a lump of coal in his stockings, Santa).
Here is an example of the kind of person Hillary Clinton is and what she wants to do for the United States:
Look at all the great things she wants to do Santa. Also Santa read what the Quad City Times, an Iowa newspaper says about her:
Hillary Clinton passes test after test after test. This Clinton arrived for the caucus campaign with much, much more experience than the first Clinton to stump across Iowa. In campaign speeches and in an interview with the Times Editorial Board, she spoke passionately of people — specific, real people — whose stories drive her desire to solve problems. “I was brought up to believe we were the problem solvers,” she told the editorial board. “If it was hard, that meant America would do it.”
This Clinton hasn’t shied away from problems.
As first lady, she stepped far beyond the traditional role and took on a major policy issue: health care. Washington special interests villified her for trying, branding any reform “socialized medicine” and even giving it her name: “Hillarycare.”
Regardless, she persevered, becoming an advocate for children worldwide and pioneering the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, which has survived Republican and Democrat Congresses.
She passed perhaps the toughest personal test. Many Americans stand up for the sanctity of marriage. Hillary Clinton did something much harder. She very publicly stood up for her own marriage. [snip]
In the Senate, she’s worked across party lines to pass test after test and earn this testimonial: “This blue-state senator with a blue-state perspective has managed to build unusual political alliances on a variety of issues with Republicans.” That commendation was written for Time magazine by U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who led the impeachment prosecution against her husband.
We tested her, too, in our editorial board interview, looking for evidence of the partisan rancor that is destroying our country. We found none. Instead, we found a proven, passionate, intelligent leader with a breadth of legislative and executive experience that is the best of a good bunch.
For Iowa’s Democratic caucuses, we support Hillary Clinton.
Check her history Santa. Don’t restrict yourself to just the past year. Go back 35 years and you will see the quality of this person. 35 years Santa – a lifetime of work and experience.
Here is another endorsement, Santa:
The stakes are incredibly high. The next president of the United States will inherit a seeming endless war in Iraq and a growing divide in this country between the haves and have nots.
Too many Americans lack access to affordable health care. America’s school districts are tethered to a questionable education policy that is No Child Left Behind. We refer to it as too-few-children-allowed-to-excel because it’s a one-size-fits-all policy when school districts across the country are vastly different, from district to district, facing unique challenges that the bureaucrats in Washington will never see or completely understand.
They need to be unleashed from those restraints so more resources can be applied to the classroom.
Most Americans don’t fully comprehend the complexities of the immigration problem, instead ceding to the notion that hordes of citizens from Mexico and Central American are sneaking across our border in the dark of night solely to steal our jobs and infect our schools with drugs and gangs.
The nation’s economy is headed toward an unstoppable recession, if you believe three former Treasury secretaries.
The plate will be full for the next occupant of the Oval Office, and it’s a job that will have to start even before the inaugural balls are over.
Of the impressive group of Democratic candidates, the one who rises above the others at this moment in the nation’s history is New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. [snip]
Vetted perhaps more than any woman in history, Clinton demonstrates the resiliency and tenacity needed in a president, especially one who will inherit the challenges the current administration will leave behind.
In person, she’s calculated yet personable. On issues, she’s not a clone of her husband. She’s an independent thinker with progressive ideas.
She promises that the days of secret eavesdropping and violations of other civil liberties ends on inauguration day. She promotes a reasonable approach to ending the war in Iraq and developing peace through partnership in the region. She honed her extensive international experience as first lady, traveling to more than 80 countries.
She finds it “galling” that American tax dollars help fund a first-class health-care plan for the wealthy members of Congress, while 47 million Americans go without access to decent health care. We’ll take her word that she’ll fix that, and that the wealthiest nation in the world will provide access to health care for those of little or modest means.
She sees the federal government as a partner with states and local schools in ensuring quality education.
Can she win? Polls show a dead heat in Iowa, and there are many undecided Democrats. Still, Democrats in the state would be selecting a proven leader with the skill sets necessary for our next president by caucusing for Hillary Clinton.
Santa, we are not beauty contest contestants so we won’t wish for “world peace” and “good will to all men and women”. We’ll be much more practical.
We also know that we can’t ask for you to make Hillary Clinton the next president, that would be undemocratic and unworthy of us. We’ll work to elect Hillary Clinton as the 44th president. We also won’t be sly and ask you to give Hillary Clinton the keys to tenancy of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, that would be a trick that we have found out from reading a lot of “Genie in the lamp” stories that would probably backfire somehow.
No Santa, we want to use your skills. Obviously Santa you not only have an impressive information gathering process and analysis operation but most importantly for us you have an incredible information DISTRIBUTION system.
So Santa baby, our idea is that you break through the Big Media Party blockade of good Hillary Clinton news. The polls are good Santa (check this poll which has Hillary leading strongly in Iowa 34% to 20% to 19%) and Hillary Clinton is a great candidate. But Americans need that information NOW, especially in Iowa.
Santa, Baby, get that information to Iowans. Use that incredible information system of yours to shove that information through chimneys past the Big Media Party blockade. Use whatever instruments you find acceptable. Use those great labor unions Santa. You must have connections with them. We are sure you run a union shop.
Help us get the information out Santa. Use that “Christmas magic” at maximum.
Santa, Baby, the time is now.
