Bill O'Reilly = Ebenezer Scrooge on Crack

Look, you bombastic, egotistical ass hat, saying "happy holidays" doesn't offend people. Well, not sane people. It covers everything from Christmas and Hanukkah to New Year's Eve and Kwanzaa. (Okay, the last one is probably a sham holiday celebrated only by the people who dreamed it up in the first place, but it still supports my point.) The phrase is inclusive and the perfect solution when faced with sending season's greetings to someone of uncertain faith. I'm sure O'Reilly is just falling into the customary lockstep of the religious right, but really, isn't this an awfully petty thing to ruffle feathers? If you want to protest something, protest the commercialism of the season instead. That makes a bit more sense than having a hissy fit that merry Christmas signs aren't plastered across every window in town.
