Sarah Palin and The War on Christmas

Dan Savage's angry, hilarious, and inspiring review of Sarah Palin's book is a (justifiably sweary) must-read. (Thanks to MyAppleMenu for the heads-up.)

What was inspiring that anti-gun chatter in Washington in December of 2012? Oh, right: Twenty children and six teachers were shot dead in their classrooms by a deranged asshole with a "powerful gun." And before the grieving mothers and fathers of Newtown, Connecticut, could put their dead children in the ground, Sarah Palin ran out gun shopping. Buying Todd a gun in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary was "fun," Palin writes—and, again, an act of "civil disobedience." Because gun nuts are a persecuted minority.
