Pat Cunningham offers an unabashedly liberal perspective on national politics. A note of caution: The language gets a little salty on some of the sites to which this blog links. So, don't say you weren't warned. By the way, this blog's name is inspired by the Will Rogers quote, \x34All politics is applesauce.\x34 In 41 years as a print and broadcast journalist, most of those years with the Rockford (Ill.) Register Star, Pat has covered national politics under eight American presidents. He's attended 10 national political conventions, Republican and Democratic alike, and has interviewed countless prominent political players, including Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush.

While channel-surfing this morning, I happened upon QVC, one of the shopping channels, and noticed that the program was titled “Countdown to Christmas.”

Countdown to Christmas?

Whoa!

Temperatures here in the Heartland are expected to reach into the 90s today. It’s August 25th, not December 25th. That’s  still four months away. Yes, we’ve come to expect — albeit regrettably — that Christmas season now starts even before Halloween. But August? Give us a break.

Why isn’t Fox News on this case? The demagogues over there are good at moaning about imaginary manifestations of a War on Christmas, but I don’t hear them complaining about Christmas in August. Whatever happened to all that rhetoric about “the reason for the season”?
