    Just caught this on AP

    Art Conrad hung a Santa from a cross in front of his West Bremerton, Wash. home, making a statement about the commercialization of Christmas, on Friday, December 21, 2007. The display is also Conrad's way of poking fun at political correctness, he says. (AP Photo/Kitsap Sun, Larry Steagall)

    Wasn't there something in the story about a sign under the cross (or somewhere in the yard) saying that he died for your Mastercard bill.

    Nothing beats the "Uncle Sam" sign near Chehalis in terms of Washingtonian wackiness.

    Well, that is until God weighed in with his rebuttal.

    Thanks for your kind words, Tom.

    "Damn the Torpedoes" was a great album.

    thank you. and FYI: good left-leaning folks such as yourself were huge inspirations in cranking out that bad boy.

    Now Tom, you know that Washington is a very liberal state, so I don't think God's weighing in was against republicnas.

    old tony - the greater seattle area is a very liberal "state." the rest of washington, especially the area with the uncle sam sign in the pic above, not so much.

    you would love, and gladly share a voting booth, with the uncle sam folks. ;)
