Fast-track that resolution, Boner! A Hill operative sends us this photo and writes, “The War on Christmas is alive and well in the House of Representatives. This Christmas tree was seen discarded on the 2nd floor of the Longworth House Office Building.” Oh that’s no Christmas tree, just an aborted tree fetus. But why is abortion taking place in Congress? (Maybe because it’s awesome?)

  1. Why didn’t the person who posted the sign “Please Remove” go ahead and “Remove”? That’s not efficient use of my tax dollars dammit.

  2. [re=475115]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Publicans go right ahead and act out in any sexual manner they choose, whenever they aren’t being watched (unless being watched is, in fact, their thing.) Ergo, no blue balls.

  3. [re=475107]bent1985[/re]: Going just by the picture, it’s difficult to definitively ascertain Cantor’s level of involvement:

    Evidence against: The sign says “PLEASE REMOVE”, not “PLEASE BUY”.

    Evidence for: The pair of blue and white TreeNutz®.

    [re=475125]SayItWithWookies[/re]: All acorns are treetuses, but not all treetuses are acorns.

    One more thing: Holiday tradition or not, this barbaric secular practice of roasting treetuses over an open fire must stop! Think of the treetuses!

  4. No, the sign refers to the sign itself – I do this all the time, putting signs that say “PLEASE REMOVE” and then screaming at the person who removed the object the sign was attached to.

  5. [re=475115]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: It deeply saddens me that I can come up with no snarky comment to link to your mention of “blue balls”.

  6. [re=475191]bfstevie[/re]: “Blue balls” is how Christmas trees say “green balloons.” This tree said the safe words too often and now they don’t want to fuck with it any more.

  7. [re=475188]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: Yeah, I hate that. People are always misinterpreting the ‘Kick me’ sign taped to my ass. Jesus, people, does ‘autoreferential res-intextual Urkritik’ mean nothing to you?

  8. So … some Congressional office didn’t get the War on Christmas memo until after they bought and schlepped a tree, then started decorating it (from the bottom up?) and then put it out in the hall for removal? And all by Decmber 9? it’s If this is a 2009 photo I call fake. Unless, that is, they decided to turn this tree in for a larger, less pitiful one and figured to lose the balls while they had the chance.

  9. They came for Butterstick. And I said nothing, because I am not a panda.

    They came for Meghan McCain’s brain. And I said nothing, because I am not a useless, fat, spoiled bitch who should be anally raped by the front line of the Green Bay Packers and left tried to a tree beside a lonely country road.

    They came for the treetuses. And I said nothing, because I don’t drink Pinesol and live in a cardboard box.

    Then they came for me. And I gave them a pair of Trucknutz, and they left.

  10. [re=475205]BeWoot[/re]: “Rarely”? You’re slipping, Dear Heart. It should be “never,” shouldn’t it?

    (You realize, of course, that if that poor little tree had a gun to DEFEND itself, it would never have been BRUTALLY CUT DOWN and then ABANDONED in some hallway?

    “When guns are outlawed, only outlaw pine trees will have guns!”)

  11. This War will not end until everyone comes to the table and signs the treety.

    [re=475199]BeWoot[/re]: You actually have a point there. Or maybe somebody’s secretary did not know that the Congressperson was jewish.

  12. [re=475205]BeWoot[/re]: There’s your answer.

    Funny thing, in Maine some people keep the x-mas decorations up all year long,because they love them so. Perhaps Olympia Snowe is just clearing out space for this year’s edition.

  13. The Christmas Tree is German, though. No? In the event, if so, it’s clearly fascist, like health-care refore. Remove posthaste, then.

  14. [re=475199]BeWoot[/re]: Very astute. This photo is a plant, meant to stir up the war on CHRISTmas. The person responsible could be from either side of the battle, and, when revealed, will leave the audience gasping audibly.

    The plot thickens.

  15. [re=475212]Neilist[/re]: Your posts are least enjoyable when they’re mundane and predictable. It’s so not like you to “phone it in” like that.

  16. [re=475212]Neilist[/re]: It’s a fake tree. So much for the brutal chopping of the weapon-less tree. [And dude, you really do have a peculiar fantasy life, doncha? At least, I’m hoping it’s all daydream and no action…]

  17. [re=475217]the problem child[/re]: “Funny thing, in Maine some people keep the x-mas decorations up all year long,because they love them so.”

    Ummm….no, that’s not the reason. It’s because they have been up there for the past 7 years & now the homeowners/trailer park denizens are too damn fat and lazy to get up on a ladder & take them down. It would cut down on their Marlborough smoking time & watching & thinking they are “Smarter than a 5th Grader.” Down here they call that being poor white trash…hate to burst your bubble about that!

  18. Dearest Martha,

    Once again, General O’Reilly has forced us forward into battle. The secular heathen are well dug in, and so General O’Reilly has told us to shoot on site any one who says “Happy Holidays.” While I miss you loving arms, I know that we fight for what it is right, and it is only once everyone accepts Christmas as the wonderful commercial season that it was to our elders, that this country will finally be everything it was meant to be, and we can turn out intention to all ridding this country of people without birth certificates.

  19. Dearest Martha, Startdate Supplemental:

    As I mentioned earlier, I really miss your loving arms. And, you know, other things. If I promise not to fall in love with anyone, is it okay with you if I get blowjobs from the local girls?

  20. And of course this was done in the least efficient manner possible. Why take two seconds to scibble the sign on a piece of scrap paper, when you can take five minutes to open a new document, type Please Remove, increase the font size to 40 and then print it out?

  21. What about that flag. It could be like the Crucifix/Xmas tree, maybe it’s connected. Please tell me that flag isn’t included with the imperative. OMG, maybe this is a set-up. Don’t you have like have to have a military burial for a flag? This is a War on Christmas and our precious flag too?

  22. C’mon Cantor, ya still can make a little camphor, some breathe-mints, a good stew…you just can’t throw out good wood, either, ya know. When I was young….

  23. All REAL Christians know that Xmas is HEATHEN!! Worshipping a tree has nothing to do with Jeebus! Instead you should be giving presents (of cash!!) to your preacher! And all the health&wealth preachers on TV, too!

    Seriously, Oliver Cromwell, the Baptist dictator, abolished Christmas in the 1640s.

  24. [re=475258]Flanders[/re]: There’s almost nobody left to comment:

    41% of Wonketeers off having Ambien sex with Tiger Woods.

    30% of Wonketeers sucked up by weird blue light in Norway.

    28% of Wonketeers taken to FEMA re-education camps.

    12% of Wonketeers off having Red Bull sex with Levi Johnston.

    8% of Wonketeers stalking outside Juli’s house without wi-fi.

    3% of Wonketeers stalking outside Meghan’s apartment without wi-fi.

    The rest of us are trying to pick up the slack but there’s only so much typing sixteen people can do.

  25. How else will our youth remember all those presents the Apostles bought on Black Friday, to stack at the foot of the Norway spruce on which Christ was crucified?

  26. Difficult decision for John Boehner’s staff about which Christian symbol cluttering Orange Face’s office to toss out, the flag or the plastic pine? The artificial conifer weighs less.

  27. [re=475226]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Whachu got against the fat Mainas? They at least have the snowbanks to wade thru, both ways. Which would be work, sorta.

  28. Well they’ve certainly already defeated science, so I suppose it’s the next logical thing–logical things of course having been destroyed during the Bush years without anything noticing…

  29. [re=475308]assistant/atlas[/re]: Oh I’m drunk and meant to post this on another thread….hooray!

    [re=475275]shadowMark[/re]: Drunk, also, too!

  30. [re=475205]BeWoot[/re]: Don’t poke the bloated hamster.
    [re=475210]Neilist[/re]: Neilist, you’re no Ken Layne.

    And the trees are all kept equal
    By hatchet, axe and saw

    Libertarian Rush, I mean mush.

  31. It’s a sad, sad day in the history of our Republic when there is no room in the halls of Congress for a Druid fertility symbol. They couldn’t wait another couple of weeeks until the Winter Solstice and then throw it out?

  32. [re=475317]Tundra Grifter[/re]:
    Koch (pronounced “coke”) Industries, Inc., a privately held corporate conglomerate (petroleum, plastics, chemicals, minerals, fertilizers, pulp and paper, etc.) and major conservative and libertarian cause contributor not likey druid symbols unless they enhance the bottom line.
    That’s the American way, you hippie.

  33. Its an “undocumented” plastic Yule tree, made in China, & slipped over the border by mules & jackals. Here to take some ‘Murkin plastic tree’s job – but aha! – it was weeded out of Congress by La Migra.

  34. They can take our lives, but they’ll never take our TREETUS! Spruce up that bitch and send it to Cantor, post-haste and forthwith.

    Thank you, Extemporanus.

  35. [re=475358]Bearbloke[/re]: Congress, not the White House, ya silly bastard…

    Apologoies to all – this is what happens when I interrupt my 7-course dinner (four pints of Bitter, 2 pork-pies and a big slice of Christmas Pavlova) to wonkabout…

  36. [re=475321]schvitzatura[/re]:

    Du grünst nicht nur zur Sommerzeit
    nein auch auf dem Müllhaufen
    Es tut mir leid

    The Nazis promoted O Tannenbaum as part of their Weinachts Krieg.

  37. Has anyone considered that maybe the tree is just damn ugly?

    Perhaps it is not that it is an xmas tree, but that it is THAT xmas tree, wot has caused call for its removal.

  38. [re=475317]Tundra Grifter[/re]: I, for one, appreciate these efforts to keep the Old Ways alive. Without Santa Claus and his elves and reindeer, for example, Sinterklaas, Black Pete, and Cernunnos might have been forgotten entirely.
