All Quiet on the Christmas Front

Well you might think that the War on Christmas has been cancelled for this year.
Luckily serial adulterer Newt Gingrich is made of Sterner Stuff (stuff from his stern IYKWIMAITTYD).
He has uncovered a heinous plot that stifles freedom of expression and such and stops the Bob Cratchits of the Gubbermint from wishing each other 'Merry Christmas".
Or as Newticles put it, in December 2011 "no federal official at any level is currently allowed to say ‘Merry Christmas"
Showing the sort of dogged journalism and scholarship for which Riddled stands as a inverse example of I found out the true story from Politifact
It seems that actually it is a federal ban on using free government postage to post out Christmas cards to all the world and has been in place since 1998 and there are actual rules about how government villeins are completely allowed to say "Happy Commercialised Freak show" if they so wish.
Which brings up the vexed question of who would be speaker of the house when this stifling of religious freedom took place? You guessed it, I know, Ole Newt and current Speaker Boehner was on the committee which supplied the wording. D'oh!
And why, you might ask, is AK posting about something that happened last year? To which I reply, LOOK CUTE SQUIRRELS, OVER THERE>>>>>>>>!!!!

You've got to have something to put the maple syrup on.
