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.

From the Washington Post:
Like the company he founded, defense contractor Erik Prince doesn’t seem to answer to anybody.
His security business, Blackwater, has been involved in at least 195 shootings in Iraq — but it has operated outside U.S. and Iraqi laws. Similarly, when Prince made a rare public appearance before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee yesterday, he acted as if the lawmakers were wasting his time.
