SAVE SANTA

Fairytales collide in Washington State:

A grim Christmas message for kids from the mayor of Seattle. Greg Nickels told small children he’s launching “Operation Save Santa” to protect the big guy from global warming. At a Christmas tree lighting, Nickels warned the kids they had to use energy efficient light bulbs, or climate change could melt the North Pole—- and drown Santa, his elves and all his reindeer.

Nickels doesn’t seem so energy efficient himself; credit, though, for taking this anti-illumination stand during a Christmas tree lighting. Meanwhile, politicians keep yammering about el calentarse global, but people - even Democrats - keep not caring:

Global warming ranked at the bottom in the Post’s poll of Democratic voters in Iowa who were asked, “What is the single most important issue in your choice for the Democratic candidate for president?”

The top response was “the war in Iraq,” with 33 percent, while 26 percent said “health care.” Ten percent chose “economy/jobs,” and others identified a dozen other issues. A smart-alecky 1 percent answered, “nothing.”

But global warming ranked even lower than “nothing,” with one-half percent.

Let’s see what they say when Santa’s skeleton, picked clean by ravenous polar bears, is retrieved from the North Pole’s boiling waters.

  1. Well, who fault is it that Santa chose to build his toy manufacturing operation on ice suspended above a fucking ocean?  Santa!

    I say he can swim in his own pool of miscalculation and stupidity.

  2. And in Boston,

    America’s top doc told the Herald, yesterday that Santa Claus should slim down, in the latest blow struck in a global politically correct crusade against the jolly fat man.

    Well, if a Boston doctor thinks Santa ought to slim down, I imagine he’d recommend Ted Kennedy for full-body liposuction and radical man-boob reduction.

  5. Good lord!  They are finally starting to realize that most adults are too smart to fall for this nonsense, so what is their solution?  Inculcate the children!  I remember in grade school being lectured about the untold devastation that acid rain was about to cause and how the planet was going to be denuded of trees before I was 30.  It scared me, it scared children everywhere, and the idiots with an agenda got what they wanted!

  6. Oh, who gives a toss about Santa?

    We all know he’s being forced out by the Present Affording to Customers Only cabal. I hear that they give decent (ie, toothpicks, dental floss, carbon credits) presents to paying customers, and to everyone else, they give a sound flogging.

    But I could be wrong…

  7. The Polar Bear Goes to The Doctor

    I swallowed it all in one bite,     
    And everything tasted all right
    Except, I suppose,
    That shiny red nose;
    And now my ass glows in the night.

  9. ... and the idiots with an agenda got what they wanted!

    What, emissions reduction programmes that have been successful in reducing SO2 and NO2 levels at minimal cost to industry? The bastards!

    Posted by Jefferson Skates on 2007 11 30 at 02:42 PM • permalink

  10. #9 Yet they still haven’t properly created those programmes, have they?

    We’re waiting. Show us how to reduce SO2 and NO2 without costing much to industry?

    Ok, great, you did that. Now do it without increasing cost more than 2% to the consumer.

  11. Nickels should be charged with child abuse.

  12. Remember that Seattle has a statue of Lenin on display near the Ballard Locks.  Just sayin’.

  13. Any bets on which fairytale outlasts the other?

  14. #11, I’ll second that.

  15. In Adelaide we’ve had attacks on front yard Santa lighting, destroying displays. 
    One note threatened the crying kids who put them up not to do this terrible thing as it burns excess C02.
    No kidding - a new face of urban terrorism…

    Any similar cases in the US?

  16. Is it not true that the South Pole is not melting?

    He can relocate.

    An elderly woman phoned morning radio last week, she was almost in a full respiratory attack. She was just so angry about the carbon emissions from Christmas lights, she was almost unable to speak (she said so, too).

    It brainwashes people at both ends of their lives.

    WOOHOOO!
    Thanks!
    Just got back from the markets… spent money I shouldn’t have. Made round to go ‘round. And wrote a long, long email to a friend.
    Tell me, is it as good as the F111? As far as the POWER feeling that you get when your insides vibrate as it flies past?

    Hmm, was it you laughing in another thread about psst? Glad I made you laugh. A pleasure.

    Sorry, I was a Zipperhead. But for your F18 queries, an appropriate advisor would be
    Lex, who has confessed to such deviant behavior in the past.

  23. As a Seattle resident I can tell you that fat ass turd mayor Greg Nickels commutes to work in a chauffeur driven limo in which he averages 140 miles daily.
