hard-hearted selfish asshole Scrooges they are.

It presents an excellent opportunity to make them look HORRIBLE. And thoroughly UN-Christian, regardless how loudly and obnoxiously they boast about being exactly that.

A SUPERB opportunity! If only our Dems would seize upon it. Let's shit all over the enemy's "good name" in the new year - and keep infusing the Dems and the White House with calcium supplements for their freakin' BACKBONES!!!! With Elizabeth Warren in her new elevated position with a seat at the table, and MORE realization that we need to stand by liberal/progressive principles, AND a President who's finally decided to be defiant against the bad guys - at long last, MAYBE our forces will remember what they should really be standing for, and standing STRONG for it, dammit!
