What does it say that it's "news" that the President of the United States actually uttered the words "Merry Christmas" (three times!) at the national tree lighting ceremony?
If you ask me, it's downright ridiculous that this is at all remarkable, but here we are. But since we are here, it's worth sending out some kudos to President Obama for opting for "Merry Christmas" (three times!) over the bland and politically correct "Happy Holidays."
Nicely done, Mr. President.
