Milking the Culture War

Michelle Cottle broke down and reviewed Sarah Palin's new book on Christmas, Good Tidings and Great Joy.

"Don't misunderstand. Palin's book is neither well-written nor informative on either a political or a theological level. She does what plenty before her have done: scour the news for any cases of holiday-themed lawsuits or political scuffles, even ones where Christmas emerges triumphant, and whip them into a towering soufflé of proof that Jesus's, and maybe even Santa's, days are numbered..."

"But to focus on Palin's narrative or polemic gifts is to miss the point. The book is not, as the subtitle maternally suggests, about 'Protecting the Heart of Christmas.' As with pretty much everything the former governor does, this is all about Venting the Spleen of Sarah. And that's what makes it so gosh darn refreshing."
