Obama Thinks He's Better Than Jesus!

Also, as we all know, he is Muslim, so it's no wonder that his giant Capitol Christmas tree doesn't even feature (or maybe does but WHO KNOWS!) any ornaments about Jesus, even though it's sporting an ornament about him!

screenshot from the website of the 'Conservative News Service' of a story headlined 'U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Pays Homage to Obama—But Not Jesus' and showing an image of an ornament obviously made by a child reading 'I [heart] President Obama.'

OMFG I love the Conservative News Service. It is the greatest thing ever.

I can't decide what my favorite part of this story is: I mean, the headline is obviously GREAT, and the picture of the ornament that has obviously been handmade by a child is TERRIFIC, and the breathless reporting that the office of the Architect of the Capitol, which curates the tree, could not confirm "whether or not this year's Christmas tree does in fact include even a single ornament that directly references or depicts Christmas or Christ" is PERFECT in every conceivable way, and the scare-quoting of "lesson plans" is BRILLIANT, but, ultimately, I guess my favorite part might just be the straight-up length and detail of the story.

Congratulations, CNS. You have won me over yet again with your passionate dedication to creating an online repository of petty, suspicious, and unjustified complaints that would rival any professional crankypants' Big Leatherbound Book of Grievances. Good job!
