I was too damned lazy x I couldn’t think of a damned thing to photoshopxxI thought we’d start a new Raisin tradition! As we’ve all seen, Deadeye Dick Cheney hasn’t changed much in the last year, so I thought we could have another Grincheney sing-along, just like last year. Pour yourself a nice cup of hot cocoa or some left-over eggnog, put on those new fuzzy socks you found under the Christmas tree, and snuggle up! Let’s sing!

The Raisin sits on Santa’s lap,
Mighty Mikk0mouse trims the tree,
While wishing that your holidays,
Are as happy as can be.
We know some of you have been worrying about that new bo-tax even if your face can no longer move to express it. But now you can relax: the cosmetic surgery tax is out, but the tanning tax has replaced it. All indoor tanning services will be subject to a ten percent tax should the Senate Democrats’ health bill prevail.
The lobbying effort by those not-so-happy cosmetic surgeons has apparently paid off, and is leaving the tanning salon industry feeling a little singed.
The President of the Indoor Tanning Association […] said in a report Saturday that the move was ironic as tanning has at least some proven health benefit.The amendment seems to have accounted for this, though, and wouldnt tax phototherapy issued by a medical professional, just tanning services purchased by individuals. Its estimated to raise $2.7 billion in that first ten year period.
But the health debate’s not over yet. The Senate bill still has to be married with the House bill. The tanning provision might even provide Minority Leader John Boehner, known for his year-round glow and his opposition to new taxes, with some new talking points.

Washington (CNN) — Senate Democrats braved the aftermath of a blizzard Sunday to continue their push to pass a sweeping health care bill before Christmas.

Continuing our story from yesterday, in which Henry Brown, Jr. saves Christmas, we now know from whom he saved it.
Where else, but from Fox News:
A Republican lawmaker with a mission to save Christmas is aiming his latest salvo at President and first lady [sic] Obama, who’ve followed in a recent tradition to eliminate the mention of Christmas in the White House holiday cards.
The card selected by the Obamas announces: “Season’s Greetings.” Inside, it reads: “May your family have a joyous holiday season and a new year blessed with hope and happiness.”
Seasons Greetings? A joyous holiday season? A new year blessed with hope and happiness? 😯 They really are socialist Marxist anarchist Communist terrorist Muslims!!!
But Rep. Henry Brown, R-S.C., said abandoning Christmas at Christmas is just plain wrong. On Tuesday, he introduced a resolution calling for the protection of the sanctity of Christmas. So far, 44 lawmakers, Democrat and Republican [1 Democrat, to be exact], have co-signed the bill.
“I believe that sending a Christmas card without referencing a holiday and its purpose limits the Christmas celebration in favor of a more ‘politically correct’ holiday,” Brown told Fox News Radio on Thursday.

From POLITICAL HOTSHEET at CBS NEWS:
The annual cultural debate over Christmas has come to Congress.
South Carolina Rep. Henry Brown, Jr. and 18 of his fellow House Republicans [OOPS! It was 17 Rethugs and 1 Democrat] this week introduced Resolution 951, which makes it clear that Christmas should not be watered down for political correctness.
