The Moderate Washingtonian

Outlook on politics and elections in the state of Washington from an overall centrist viewpoint. My views tend to be libertarian in nature, but at the same time are largely nonpartisan.

Holy Christianity, Danny Westneat!

For possibly the first time ever, I am in complete agreement with Seattle Times opinion writer Danny Westneat. His column today highlights the other day's bitch-fest featuring state Rep. John Ahern [R-Spokane], and the story he tells shows how absurd the holiday debate is. Regardless of what religion somebody is or if they have one at all, the holiday season should be about spending time with loved ones and being a good person, not waging war over language technicalities.

That's all hyped by the media, how could any reasonable person give a crap?

Part of it is media hype, being that the media loves to cover people making asses of themselves, but the so-called "culture war" appears to be more obnoxious this holiday season than prior.
