I Think We Won... A War That Wasn't (?!!?)

On The O'Reilly Factor, host Bill O'Reilly apparently reversed his previous position that the phrase "Happy Holidays" is offensive, stating, " 'Happy Holidays' is fine, just don't ban 'Merry Christmas.' " O'Reilly has previously claimed the term "Happy Holidays" is offensive to "millions of Christians" and 'insulting to Christian America."

O'Reilly Retreats

I do have to ask: if neoconservatives can't even win a nonexistent war against a holiday, why does anyone think they can successfully prosecute a war against real terrorists, or stabilize Iraq?

But I'm being snarky. Good for O'Reilly. Now if John Gibson will remove all copies of "The War On Christmas" from store shelves and donate all profits to the Anti-Defamation League, and the U.S. House will pass a resolution apologizing for H. Res. 579 (and for refusing to include Hannukah in its language), then everything should be pretty much OK.
