News Flash: Comedy Central = "Secular Central"

Bill O'Reilly, in his crusade to prevent "militant secularists" from de-Christianizing Christmas (better look at the White House, Bill) despite an overwhelming dearth of evidence, has started picking on Jon Stewart and the Daily Show.

Using a clip from last year, O'Reilly claims that Jon Stewart is at the forefront of the war on Christmas that is occurring this year. (that's really being in the avant-garde, no?)
There you go. Jon Stewart, "Secular Central." Oh, I'm sorry, Comedy Central -- and I like Stewart, but we know what he's doing over there. And it's not just Stewart. You know, 90 percent of -- quote/unquote -- "entertainers" are secular progressives. [Laughs] OK, we're up for the fight. We're up for it, man.
The humor of the offending clip ("Christmas: It's the only religious holiday that's also a federal holiday. That way, Christians can go to their services and everyone else can stay home and reflect on the true meaning of separation of church and state.") was, of course, lost on O'Reilly.

Christians—what can you say? They love being the majority, but they just adore being persecuted.
