    lefties, and those that like to feature themselves as centrists or former conservatives, why do "you" believe she felt a need or responsibility to apologize for or use the qualifier, "forgive the expression," when describing the party as a Christmas Party?

    My view of the whole thing is it is an ingrained belief that the word Chrismas is not allowed or holds a place similar to the "N" word in the company of the elite as well as many that populate the main stream left.

    i dont recall hearing anyone demand that muslims quit calling ramadan ramadan or asians to quit calling tet tet. cinco de mayo is a great day for " 'ritas and 'jitas" in these parts, just as long as the mexican flag is not flown above ours.

    and i have yet to hear anyone say one bad thing about "Festivus" - for the rest of us.

    and even further, your analogy is inaccurate. to be equivalent one would have to travel to a muslim country and then demand an end to celebrating ramadan. good luck with that.
