Some Christmas Cheer...for Cops and Firefighters

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!

In addition to all the other Christmassy goodness you're enjoying -- cloying carols, rock-solid fruitcake, reindeer sweaters from grandma -- I'd like to make but a small recommendation.

Stop in to your local police precinct or fire station with some homemade treats. I like to bring cupcakes because, well, I can call them "Cuppcakes." And everyone knows I love a good play on words.

Or bring some toys into your nearby hospital...imagine being a 7-year-old and having to slurp down green Jello tonight with nurse Helga.

And of course, if you can, bring some food in to your local soup kitchen or homeless shelter.

Here's hoping you have a wonderful holiday...making someone else's a little merrier.

Gitmo For Christmas

Gold Star mom Debbie Lee and Move America Forward announced plans to go to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to support the troops and distribute -- in person -- holiday cards and gifts. Here's some more info on their admirable work:

Pro-Troop Group Brings Holiday Cheer to Gitmo Troops

Guantanamo Bay Final Destination for Nationwide Tour Gathering Care Packages for Troops

Sacramento, CA – Move America Forward, the nation’s largest pro-troop grassroots organization, announced today their nationwide tour to support the troops will include a stop at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Melanie Morgan, Chairman of Move America Forward, said, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to be able to personally tell the United States military personnel at Guantanamo Bay how much we appreciate their service to America. We especially appreciate those who have had the difficult duty of containing the worst terrorists, who are imprisoned at the Naval Facility.”

Move America Forward has been conducting a nationwide tour to support sending care packages to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. The tour began in Sacramento, California, with a parade to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the California Vietnam Memorial and will now end at the U.S. military facility in Cuba.

“With Americans focused on the economic problems facing our country, we have to ensure that our troops in harm’s way are not forgotten during the Christmas and Hanukkah holiday season. Our care packages are heading to Iraq and Afghanistan, but it is also important to remember our troops who are keeping the terrorists at bay just 90 miles from our shores,” said Morgan.

The trip is being facilitated by Kylie Williams, official ambassador for veterans’ advocacy for the State of Florida. Traveling on the tour in addition to Morgan will be MAF staff members Catherine Moy, Danny Gonzalez and Ryan Gill. Also accompanying the group will be Gold Star Mom and MAF spokesperson Debbie Lee, whose son Marc Alan Lee was the first Navy SEAL killed in Iraq. Lee said, “Move America Forward made possible a trip to Kuwait and Iraq so that Melanie and I could join our troops during the holidays last year and personally distribute Christmas and Hanukkah cards to our troops. This year we are honored to travel to Guantanamo Bay to express our thanks and see for ourselves the honorable work done under difficult circumstances by our military.”

“With so many politicians irresponsibly criticizing the job being done by American troops at Guantanamo Bay, we thought it was important for us to go there and personally tell them that the American people are 100% behind them – despite what a few self-serving politicians have to say,” Morgan concluded.

My Huck Crush in Slate

I have a piece in Slate today on my growing obsession with Mike Huckabee.


SE on Red Eye

I had the pleasure of doing Fox's "Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld" last night, as I'm wont to do, and we chatted about the Intelligence Squared US debate I attended earlier in the week. The debate motion was: "Bush 43 is the Worst President of the Last 50 Years." Arguing in favor were Simon Jenkins and Jacob Weisberg, and arguing against were the inimitable Karl Rove and Bill Kristol. Good stuff. Check out this Red Eye clip:
