Hey! Sorry about the scarcity of posts lately. I’ve had some projects that required my full time attention so finding the time to sit down and put together a post and illustration in the last while hasn’t been possible. Also, I’m getting ready for my annual Santa Claus gig where I get to dress up and have a bunch of 1, 2 and 3-year-olds cry while sitting on my lap. I love it though and it’s a couple of hours of enjoyment I look forward to every year.
I’ll be doing my Santa impersonation at Leena’s daycare on Monday where her mom will hopefully be able to get a better photo than she was able to with the real Santa. Leena was in a non-cooperative mood that day…and speaking of Santa, here’s a great piece from Jon Stewart’s Thursday show where he wonderfully rips apart Fox News and Megyn Kelly for her “Santa is white” commentary.
bullshits claims that she was only being funny and if the people who chose to criticize her had a shred of humor in them, they would have known that.
“In kicking off the light-hearted segment, I offered a tongue-in-cheek message for any kids watching, saying that Santa — who I joked was a real person whose race was identifiable — is white,” Kelly said. “Humor is a part of what we try to bring to this show, but sometimes, that is lost on the humorless.”
“This would be funny if it were not so telling about our society,” she continued. “In particular, the knee-jerk instinct by so many to race-bait and to assume the worst of people, especially people employed by the very powerful Fox News Channel.”
Believe us, Kelly, thinking the worst of the liars, grifters and ignoramuses employed by the “powerful Fox News Channel” is just about the easiest and most honest thing any of us will ever have to do.
