How ridiculous that the assault on Christmas is now an expression requiring a request for forgiveness when spoken on air by NPR reporter Nina Totenberg.
The transcript of her words, spoken in the broadcast discussion over the recently defeated Omnibus Bill,
"I want to say one thing about the budget that didn’t get passed, the omnibus bill. You know, we talk a lot about – we just passed this huge tax cut in part because business said, you know, we have to plan, we have to know what kind of tax cuts we have. Well, these agencies, including the Defense Department, don't know how much money they've got and for what. And I was at – forgive the expression – a Christmas party at the Department of Justice and people actually were really worried about this. These are law enforcement people don't know exactly what kind of money they can spend for what."
Will John Laird or Lou Brancaccio or any other media editors pick up on this blurb and editorialize on how silly her words are? Don't hold your breath.
After all, haven't we been told that it is us who are being silly and creating a problem where none exists?
Will "Christmas" one day be transformed into "Expletive Deleted" by the politically correct media types?
