Cap Hill presser “Santa Claus” – tax hikes “will hurt my efforts to visit families across the country this Christmas and deliver presents”

Good grief! Is nothing sacred? Not even Santa?

Just spotted in the U.S. Capitol: Santa Claus headed to the Speaker’s Office. Yes, really. Discuss.

Ask for discussion, and ye shall receive.

Having “Santa” visit Boehner’s office only further speaks to the childlike intellect of liberalism.

Bingo!

But, wait, was it Santa Claus or “Santa Clause,” as the White House calls him?

On the plus side, Santa kept his clothes on, unlike the last visitors to Boehner’s office. Shudder.
