It seems that every “celebrity” eventually gets their own Christmas special or cuts a Christmas album. This is the only explanation I can give for Bing Crosby having consented to sing the Little Drummer Boy with David Bowie.

Well, now you can add Iran’s very own Mahmoud Amadenijad to the list of world leaders who have scored free face time resulting from a foundation-less media’s quest for politically correct programming.

Yes, dear reader, the UK’s Channel 4 has selected Mahmoud to give their “Alternative Christmas Message” this year.

What will he say? How will he say it? How many times will he excoriate the United States? I have no idea.

No. I am not making this up. Stop laughing. The video will be uploaded sometime Christmas-eve afternoon UK time.

You’ll excuse me if I don’t set aside time today to watch the droning fool. I have more important things to do.

Like make fudge.
